Since production on the Justice League movie is set to begin in January, I hope we get some Green Lantern casting news soon. I have a feeling Zack Snyder has already found his GL but they're just holding off on the official announcement. These three guys would be my top choices to play Hal.




But at this point I don't care who, I just want someone announced already!

Even if I've only seen the recent comic book movies (MCU+Nolan Batman+MoS+GL) that's 17 movies. That qualifies under the definition of the word "many".

And that's before we even get into the whole using "3 Dev Adam as the standard" thing.

3 Dev Adam. A Turkish movie from the 70s.

Where is all this Jake Gyllenhal talk coming from? Personally I cannot see him as Hal - he still looks like a doofy guy to me.

I love buddy cop movies. I think that approach could really work for a GL movie in the right hands.

Originally I wasn't all for the idea myself but I've seen more of his films and the guy really is a great actor. See Donnie Darko, Source Code, End of Watch, Prisoners, Enemy, and Nightcrawler just to name a few. Every film he's a completely a different person so that shows he has the chops and range. And while I don't think Prince of Persia is a great movie, his character in that film is pretty similar to that of Hal's so I think he could pull it off.

And if you think he's a doofy guy you should go see Southpaw. It might change your thoughts on that.

I don't have any problems if this will be the direction of the film. Hopefully it would preclude another origin story and just get into the substance of the Green Lantern mythos.

For a buddy cop movie to work, you'll need a loose cannon and the straight man. I would prefer the pair being a human GL and an alien.

If WB made a good buddy cop movie out of GL with Hal and John? Holy shit...I'd go out of my mind. I'd see that SO many times in the theater.

But what if it goes beyond even that? What if we get the four amigos and Kyle and Guy are another pair of Earth Lanterns among the 7200? That's more of the Lethal Weapon flavor than Hal and John who are both pretty cut and dry w/military experience.

I'd be all for Hal and just some alien as well. But not Sinestro.

With our luck it will be Guy Gardner and John Stewart...

...starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart.

They could make it a 70s period piece and do straight-laced Hal with jive-talking, afro-wearing, militant John.

That would be awesome! Especially if Ch'p was introduced like this:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


It would be crazy if WB instead went with Simon Baz and B'dg for the sake of diversity.




I'm also scared that WB might go with "Guy and his G'nort."

I'm worried about it being Baz. That will seriously push me away from all the other stuff they're doing in the films... except for maybe Shazam w/the Rock. It's killing me that GL is the only thing that hasn't been touched on with what we know of this new cinematic universe. We know who's playing Aquaman, Cyborg, Black Adam, etc... just nothing on GL. Or Shazam now that I think about it...

If they did use Baz, I imagine there would be a tremendous backlash by fans. I know I'd be upset. I personally don't have anything against the character, but I don't think he has earned the comic cred to be the cinematic Green Lantern.

I don't think WB would want to do Baz's origin. Making the first in-cinema Muslim superhero a car thief and touching on the topic of suicide bombing (even though it's not him), would probably be deemed too hot to handle.

They might not give him his actual origin but there's no reason they couldn't change it in the name of diversity's sake. Which would kinda piss me off more.

Jordan and Stewart would make for a great buddy cop movie, Stewart most likely to play the straight/serious man, while Jordan to play the head strong/loose cannon. I hope that's the case as it would satisfy the diversity and classic issue.

Pretty much. I agree.

The point being that people who state that a modern, big-budget comic book adaptation is among the "worst ever" films usually don't understand how far the CBM genre has come. 3 Dev Adam is perhaps the most glaring example of a low-budget, poorly-acted, ignore-the-source material film, but it's hardly unique. There have been misfires in the last 15 years, but they all look like high art compared to the ill-conceived, shoestring-budgets abominations of 30 or more years ago.
