Green Lantern
« on: September 5, 2008, 03:36 PM »
WIZARD has art (and a link to more) up for some concept art for the possible upcoming Green Lantern movie.  Apparently this art (by Brian Murray) was used as part of a presentation package for the film.

Rumors are that Ryan Gosling (The Notebook, Half Nelson) is at the top of the WB's list to play the lead in the upcoming Green Lantern movie.  He's a very good actor, but I guess I just never pictured him as Hal Jordan.  Then again, I didn't picture Heath Ledger as the Joker either when he was announced, so you never know.

Newsarama has an article up discussing the upcoming GL movie as well (with writer Marc Guggenheim).  Nothing major or spoilerish, but it sounds like the movie is moving along nicely - with a projected start date of next year.

From what I've read about the Green Lantern, sounds like it should be pretty good.

Not the live action movie, but a trailer is up for WB/DC's next animated movie - Green Lantern: First Flight.  It looks pretty good so far.

Animated?!  I thought they were working on a live version of the jolly green ring-boy?   :(

They have started the casting work for GL, they just haven't announced/signed anyone yet.  ;)

There were a lot of rumors last month that Chris Pine (Kirk in the new Trek movie) got the part of Hal Jordan, but he said last week that while he did indeed meet with the casting director/producer, he hasn't agreed to anything nor has he even seen the script yet.

The GL movie is supposed to start shooting later this Fall in Australia.  The director attached to the film at the moment is Martin Campbell (Casino Royale).


ps.
GL:First Flight looks awesome.  I can handle them changing up some things (Abin Sur, Sinestro's timeline, etc) to create an "ultimates" type GL universe (like they changed some things to make Superman: Doomsday) as long as there is a good story...

I was reading at SHH that the latest rumors are saying Bradley Cooper is up for the role of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

Sounds like WB/DC's Green Lantern movie has been pushed back to June 17, 2011 now.  If I'm remembering correctly, it should make for a fairly superhero light 2010 - with just Iron Man 2 and I believe Jonah Hex.

Aside from Batman and Superman, I don't know that the DC characters make for good movies.  With the exception of Batman, I think that they tend to be much broader and infallible.  And in contrast I find the majority of the Marvel characters to be more human, flaws and all.

JT has Green Lantern?

Meh as far as JT.  But the director has some decent credits (Casino Royale, Goldeneye), and one of the writers worked on Smallville.

I remember what a **** storm was kicked up when rumors hit the Internet that 'N Sync was going to get a cameo in AOTC.  JT has shown some acting chops since then and seeing him in a film seems less of a gimmick now and more of an honest try.  Still, it's kind of silly to think about.

People seem to have been impressed by his performance in Alpha Dog, but it wasn't a leading role.  And I don't think he's played a leading role in any movie yet.
