This.
I've been saying Kazinsky for Hal Jordan for a while now and it makes perfect sense. He was amazing in Eastenders and I have no doubt he'd be able to pull off Hal's personality whilst bringing a greater level of depth to the character than Reynolds could. Plus he's a self-proclaimed nerd who claims to own Star Trek uniforms, so a superhero role would definitely not be beneath him (unlike other actors) especially seeing as he's only had a couple of big roles in the past.

Again, about THE ANIMATED SERIES, it's VERY VERY good. Just because WB decides to cancel it does not mean it isn't good.
I think Hal's look is better suited for comics and animation than it is for live action. Back in the Superfriends days the heroes all had the same personality so I was indifferent to Hal. Never cared about a GL until JLU. I've seen 2eps of the animated series and wasn't impressed. Not fan of Hal or the CG look for a show based on a comicbook. The show did nothing to change that. I prefer traditional animation. The show wasn't a ratings magnet either. I saw both animated movies and they were good, but forgettable. Glad they didn't focus much(if any) on his relationship w/Carol IIRC. I enjoyed the other lanterns much more than Hal. Being exposed to Hal doesn't automatically mean one will like him.

Fair enough. I think a story about a badass marine turned badass spacecop story almost writes itself and would probably interest the GA much more than a test pilot turned GL

You're oversimplifying things though. Batman & Robin and The Dark Knight Rises both have five of the same characters in (Batman, Robin, Bane, Gordon, Alfred), but are two fundamentally different films.

John having a film is not as simple as "marine turned cop". In fact, that very story should only be used as a vehicle to perhaps explaining a character arc of having PTSD, he shouldn't want to have to fight again. It's the difference between trying to make Saving Private Ryan or The Expendables.

Both were more enjoyable &successful than what we got. All movies w/military folks don't have to focus on PTSD to make $ or be good, but your idea isn't a bad one. It already sounds better than what we got from WB. Look @you w/ideas for a JS flick. You're the next convert whether you like it or not!

I'm by no means a convert, but that should be what John brings to the team dynamic of the Earth GL's. I'm still in the mindset that if they reboot Green Lantern as a member of the Corps, they should go with a buddy cop/war film with Earth GL's, but if they intend to go solo, actually change the concept of the character and really begin fresh with Alan Scott.

Would the "buddy cop" dynamic really work within the DCMU's tone? I don't know. Just thinking about the Lethal Weapon movies, Rush Hour, Copout, Men in Black series, RIPD, ect. I really wouldn't want that dynamic (I'm not discussion story) to come out when then world is on the line.

He is an *******, i don't like him.

I'd rather see him join the Red Lantern corps directly than being a GL first.

He's not one of my favorites, but I do enjoy seeing Guy and Hal go at it. There were some nice rivalry moments.

Yeah he does have enjoyable moments and i don't hate him, i just don't like him very much. Steve "nutcase" Engleheart's influence is still there and the cliche american badass redneck cop who is pissed off even if there is no reason to be pissed off is getting old. He was intended to be a parody but instead he fully embraced his identity. I dont think his character would ever be chosen by the ring.

As a Red Lantern and Vuldarian i like him very much and actually i can see him being such a character.

John Stewart is the way to go IMO.

Well if you hope something, maybe you should place him in the blue lantern corps?

He was different when he was chosen. He was a caseworker who rehabilitated prisoners and a teacher for disabled children when he was chosen as Hal's back-up, but he was put into a coma by General Zod after being trapped in the Phantom Zone. Eventually Guy woke up with his current personality being a result of the Phantom Zone and Coma. He was still deemed worthy from before so the ring still worked for him, which Hal opposed. Hal was very insistent that he wasn't the same Guy he was before. But Guy proved valuable in his current state and was allowed to stay.

Weird that they have Hal instead of WW or Flash. I wonder who made that call. Hal looks silly & out of place IMO

Yes, he looks totally out of place next to two other superheroes that he's been teaming up with regularly in comic books for the past 54 years.

Oh wait I forgot. HAL IS TEH LAME AND SUCKS CUZ SOME GUY WHO KNOW NUTHIN ABOUT HIM SAID SO JOHN STEWART FOREVERZ!

Lol. Fanboy rage much? I know enough to form my opinion about him. I know that outside of comics, WB's money spent on Hal doesn't seem to come back. You got 2 icons who've both had successful live action films and animated series next to some lame whose expensive movie did nothing but lose a small fortune and whose cartoon got scrapped after just one season They should cut their losses. They may be hoping Bats & Supes can bring him up, but what if his lameness just brings them down?

It's not weird if you check the DVD animated section. Emerald Knights, First Flight, Best of Green Lantern, GL: TAS Vol. 1. That's 4 current releases with Hal on the cover.

Although they did have smaller, side cut-outs of Flash and Cyborg on the sides of the toy aisle. They also had a huge Flashpoint display. Don't worry about Flash, his time is now.

The Hulk's last 'toon lasted only 21 episodes. Iron Man's solo 'toon in the 90s lasted only 26 episodes. Did that stop Marvel from promoting the daylights out them? GL's name recognition is at an all-time high. Of course they are promoting him.

Every DC promotion that I've seen in the last few years features Supes, Bats, Flash, and GL. If it's a girl-centric product, they use Wonder Woman. That's going to be the JLA for the first movie.

If it's a 7-character promotion, Aquaman and Cyborg are included. If they aren't in JLA 1, they will most certainly be in the sequel.

They've lost a LOT of money promoting Hal though.

Seasons were shorter. They both got more than one. Neither had Bruce Timm involved. I wasn't comparing GL to either of them to begin with though. I was talking about the people he's in that picture with. & I didn't just bring up Hal's failure in animation. I talked about his live action fail as well. My point was that they're making WB money in areas outside of comics and Hal's doing the exact opposite. In recent history, Hulk had a live action film directed by Ang Lee that wasn't that good. It was bad enough that it even held the reboot back IMO. That Ang Lee movie STILL made more money than Hal's film did(as did the reboot. Neither lost the studio tons of cash like Hal's flop did either). We shouldn't compare Hal to Hulk & we damned sure shouldn't compare him to Ironman. Ironman rose up & became a true pop culture icon. Hal hasn't & never will.
