Default Re: Re-cast Hal Jordan for JL movie? Yay or Nay?

I honestly think any of the three main GLs could work on film (Hal, John or Kyle) if they are written well. All of them are engaging characters. I think the problem with Hal as he was portrayed in the GL movie was they made him more like Wally West than Hal Jordan. It's an easy mistake to make; both characters are smartass womanizers. But I think the trick to making Hal work is to also give him that born leader mentality. He has to come off like a guy who could take charge of the entire GL corps and lead them into battle. Even though I liked Reynolds in the role, I have to admit it's hard to picture him as that type of character. But he didn't write the script, so who knows? Maybe he could have pulled it off had Hal been written better.
