Kirk who hits on anything that walks) wouldn't have worked either, but you don't know that for sure. Just like you also don't know that John Stewart (even a 100% comic book accurate one) would have been received any better than Hal was.
I want J.Stewart to be JLU accurate, but I get your point. I've said it b4 myself. The whole GL concept might not work w/the audience. I just think a hardcore marine has more of a chance than a test pilot w/green dominatrix mask

You have a good point. RR does pick a lot of garbage comic flicks
. Now I reeeeeeeally don't wanna see him in JL. Bad omen x1000

Ditto. And IM2 didn't suck anywhere near as much as GL did.
