The first Green Lantern has been around since 1940. Outside of comics, we saw him in cartoons and video games, but it wasn't until 2011 (over 70 years later) that DC/Warner Bros. took a chance on him on the big screen starring Ryan Reynolds. Though, the movie itself was met with mixed (mainly negative) reviews, DC/Warner Bros. decided to revamp their DC Cinematic Universe and start from scratch with 2013's Man of Steel.

Noted comic geek and lover of all things nerd. Zach Levi has been close to many hero parts (even playing a supporting one in Thor: The Dark World) but we think it's time to give him his own title. He's got a loyal fan base, the charm, and look for Hal Jordan.126193Should he be cast?
The star of Hawaii Five-0 has proven he can handle a show that is silly with grace and ease, which means he should be able to bring gravitas and believability to a potentially silly character.88151Should he be cast?
