The closest I can think of are Exodus: Gods and Kings and The Great Gatsby, and well..yeah. He's a great actor but I agree in having a hard time seeing him as Hal. Maybe it's just his permanent case of Conan O'Brien-Face, lol.

I can't say I even have an actor in mind per se, but believe it or not I think the Ryan Reynolds mold IS what they should go for. Cocky, humorous and perhaps just a little off putting, but have that leavened with his core of caring about the world, fearless self sacrifice and morality.

I disagree, just because I've always found Ryan Reynolds to be completely charmless. His rise to fame has always baffled me, as I've never laughed at any of his supposed humor over the years. The only laughs I got out of Deadpool were due to the directing/editing choices, rather than Reynolds' delivery. I agree they should go for someone who represents that archetype, just...someone who does it well. Which has never been Reynolds, in my view.

They should definitely go for someone in the same vein as Reynolds.

Joel McHale was an intriguing choice from that rumored shortlist.

I like Krasinski for this.

I think Jake McDorman from the Limitless TV show would be a good Hal if they are open to a slightly lesser known actor.

I do think they might go for a lesser known actor. Always worked well for Superman.

I don't dislike Reynolds, but he wasn't well suited for Hal Jordan. Reynolds was always a better fit for Deadpool or the Wally West version of Flash.

I liked Reynolds' Hal Jordan, but since there is 0 chance in him coming back intheDCEU, i think Gyllenhaal is the best choice. Gyllenhaal as Hal and Luke Evans as Sinestro would be epic

How about someone like Matt Bomer? Or he's too much of a Cavill look-alike.

Why not, to be honest I think the look alike thing is fun. it was one of the smaller things I liked about Hardy when he was going to be Flagg (how much he looked like Jai and the fact that Boomer had a very similar looking coat to his Bane) then the Revenant ran way over and without Hardy's star power to counteract Smith's the movie started pushing aside Flagg, marginalizing him and undermining him as this supposed badass spec ops. guy.

Edgerton or Bomer would both be great options IMO though perhaps too old.

I really doubt they can find a true A-lister. Gyllenhaal isn't going to do this film even if they pay him $20 million. They're gonna have to hope for some rising star or just pick a complete unknown, which has worked for several MCU films.

Bradley Cooper I actually can see him as Hal Jordan but I would go with Joel McHale or John Krasinski as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern
