‘The Green Lantern Corps’ Film Is Lookin To Cast Hal Jordan – And a Familiar Name Is On The Shortlist
The upcoming Green Lantern Corps film set to release in 2020 is scouting for its leading man. The rumor mill has pushed out the shortlist for possible contenders to take on the role of the Emerald Crusader. As we mentioned in a previous piece about the film, there hasn’t been much released about what we can expect other than the main characters will be the Green Lanterns of Earth: Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner, John Stewart, and Guy Gardner. This morning, The Wrap, dropped some names for who might take on the role and a surprising top of the list has a little experience with the character.
The nerd community took a major hit with Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern in 2011. Reynolds even took some pot shots at the flick in last year’s Deadpool, but all jokes aside, will the upcoming Green Lantern Corps be any good? It’s already coming into a questionable cinematic universe alongside DC’s lackluster releases of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad so hopes are high and fingers are crossed that the next venture into the world of Hal Jordan and company fares better than it did the last time. Fellow nerd and filmmaker Duncan Jones has gone to Twitter to share his opinions on what we should get when Green Lantern Corps hits theaters in 2020.
This has been an interesting year for comic book crossovers. From Marvel, we got Civil War II and from DC Comics we got Rebirth. Both have been widely successful as they have gone across many different issues connecting various characters together. Rebirth has been credited in realigning the DC universe and has substantially increased sales for the publication. It looks like DC is not yet done pushing interesting storylines together.
Ash Williams: Groovy S-Mart employee with a penchant for boomsticks and mad DIY prosthetics skills. Also, unlikely hero from the sky, fated to stop the Deadite invasion. Pretty much the spirit of the 80’s b-horror movie flick. Lobo: Space biker with a short fuse, and an anti-grav motorcycle. Hangs out with a school of space dolphins. Has fought Wolverine and made it to the second round. Functionally immortal, with the capacity to infinitely reproduce from each drop of his own spilt blood. Each of them is a smug anti-hero with an almost fanatical cult following among the most gung-ho nerds.
Once, they were separated by vast gulfs of time and space, each occupying his Universe of origin. That is, until Brian Rosenthal, the director behind the 2013 fan film Marvel Zombies VS Army Of Darkness thought otherwise. After holding his own against zombie-Wolverine and narrowly escaping a super-zombie infested New York, Ash Williams has broken into a brand new universe, also overwhelmed by the undead and filled to the brim with horror-themed cameos!
There’s been a lot of talk about the tone of the upcoming fourth season of Arrow: will it be lighter, will characters spend less time crying, will it suck less as compared to season three? Fair questions, and one of the show’s key executive producers offers an answer in a recent interview. Now there are a lot of balls up in the air for Arrow’s fourth season: the fate of Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and his company Palmer Technology (nee Queen Consolidated), how this season will look backward for inspiration, and does Oliver’s flashback trip to Coast City mean a close encounter with another emerald themed hero?

Even before they had the idea to create a great big interconnected universe of movies, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have been trying to crack the “Wonder Woman code.” It’s been start and stop for a long time at the studio as they’ve tried to develop a big screen Wonder Woman movie with a long line of various writers and directors each trying to do what shouldn’t be that impossible: make a gosh darn Wonder Woman movie! Well, here’s a positive sign. It seems like Gal Gadot now has a male lead and co-star for her first solo Wonder Woman adventure. Get ready Chris Pine, you’re about to beam up to Paradise Island. (Or possibly crash-land.) (more…)
Green Lantern fans can let out that breath and take a big sigh of relief. The movie that everyone was wondering about just got a little clearer. When Warner Bros. announced their big movie schedule it was titled Green Lantern, which made a lot of people wonder if it would be a reboot of the Ryan Reynolds disaster and another origin story, but now we know.
