Well the search is on it appears for who will wear the most powerful piece of jewelry in the whole universe.
Its been reported that Warner Bros. is currently looking to cast the role of Hal Jordan for Green Lantern Corps and is even looking back to who last played him. The actors being looked into for Hal are Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal. But most interestingly, Ryan Reynolds who first played Hal Jordan in 2011’s Green Lantern, a less than stellar adaption of the DC Comics hero.
Interesting how DC is considering Reynolds for the role again and with a different production this time, things might be better than before. But the question is if Reynolds would even want to return since he’s very busy with the upcoming sequel to a successful comic book movie he starred in, Deadpool. Green Lantern in 2011 was a big bomb and did kinda hurt Reynolds’ career for a bit before Deadpool helped revitalize his stock in Hollywood.
An unnamed source at the studio has let it out that Warner Bros. is also looking at James Marsden for Hal and his role on HBO’s hit show Westworld is a big factor as to why. Marsden himself is familiar with playing a previous superhero having been Cyclops in the X-Men franchise and he was in a previous DC film playing Richard White in Superman Returns.
