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.
It's time to start thinking who can take over the Hal Jordan the Green Lantern mantle. Should Ryan Reynolds play Green Lantern again in the next Justice League film? Some think Ryan Reynolds should stick around and the Green Lantern film should stay in the movie continuity.
Who would make the best Green Lantern? Listed are actors we think would do a pretty good job playing Hal Jordan in a rebooted movie and be an essential part of the Justice League movie franchise. But we want to hear from you. Make sure to vote up which actor should play Green Lantern on the big screen.
This relative newcomer to the acting scene made waves with his breakout role in Divergent, so he already has the young-adult market sold. He has the look and has shown plenty of talent and physicality as an actor very quickly.Should he be cast?
The TV actor everybody wants to play a superhero on film is probably most adept at playing Hal Jordan. His look, attitude, and type lend itself perfectly to the brash, yet noble, fighter pilot.Should he be cast?
He's 6'4, 200ish lbs of muscle, he was almost Batman, and his name is Armie Hammer. Then there's that impossibly imposing voice to yell out the Green Lantern oath.Should he be cast?
This guy was born to play a superhero and then was cast as the leader of the X-Men. However, that role was incredibly underwritten and required half his face to be covered for the duration. We think he deserves another go, this time as Green Lantern.Should he be cast?
