I definitely prefer Hal, but if they can get a great actor lined up for John, then I'm all for using John. But they definitely need to use Hal for any solo movies, or they'll have to do an amalgamation of John and Hal's characters.

It's very interesting to see that Hal and John are neck and neck in the poll!

Hal Jordan in the first JL movie. Stewart and Guy in the sequels.

As I said before, in a post in this thread that someone deleted for whatever stupid reason:

Guy Gardner.

Seriously. He is the earth GL with the deepest and most interesting character. He can outsnark Tony Stark and provide the funny, while staying in character. He can question authority and come across as the douchebag of the team, but be a real hero underneath it all.
They will not use him, but they should. He makes more sense than Hal and John. Especially John, who is almost avoid of character in the comics.

All people who said Gardner as a joke clearly haven't read Green Lantern since the 80s.

Plus we already have an African-American on the cast with Cyborg. No reason to include Stewart for diversity. Diversity is Stewart's best asset. The JS character is quite bland.

Hal has a better mythology to work from, and he's DC's current #1 GL.


My guess is we're getting the first New 52 JL Lineup.

I hope Flash says this is the movie.

Shouldn't this thread be in the Justice League forum?

The better question is which Flash should be used Barry or Wally?

Barry should be The Flash. Hal should be Lantern, their bromance is rivalled only by Sinestro's (with Jordan) and Clark's with Bruce.

If not Hal, go for Wally and Kyle. Then Jay and Alan. Then John and Bart.

If they go with John Stewart, how would everyone feel about Michael Jai White as a potential casting choice?

Michael Jai White is like Scott Adkins. Good for stuntment and "dragon" type characters. Basically, partially developed henchmen/bad asses.

But a leading character? No. Doesn't have the chops for it. I'd like to see him in a role more meaty than that of Gambol from TDK though.

None, they should use Green Arrow from Arrow.

Geoff pretty much wrote a Reynolds like jordan in that jla war arc.

Hal Jordan is probably the most interesting Lantern, but there is benefit to using John Stewart. It would be easier to disconnect the character from the awful Green Lantern movie that would still be in the audience's mind.

I don't really see how Hal is that interesting? The most interesting and unique thing about him was retconned.

I want Stewart, more for the modern era fans that grew up on JL and JLU animated works. As for Elba, he is a bit played out so wouldn't mind seeing someone else in the role. Although I'd prefer him over The Rock.

Modern era doesn't really describe John Stewart fans. Hal had a resurgence in popularity AFTER John Stewart became popular on the animated Justice League.
I was introduced to Green Lantern through Superman: TAS and Justice League: TAS, but Geoff Johns' run made me a Green Lantern fan.

Sure it does. Many fans of John Stewart GL came from the animated series JL/JLU which ran through 2006. I'd consider that a modern time frame.

Victor Stone probably won't even appear as Cyborg yet. A cameo most likely, of course the same could be said for the rest of the JL characters outside of Batman, Superman, and maybe Wonderwoman appearance wise.

2006? That was almost ten years ago. The Green Lantern of the 2000s was arguably John Stewart. Not in the comics, but the animated series provided more exposure than the comics did in the 2000s anyway...

but the Green Lantern of the late 2000s/2010s/the modern Green Lantern is Hal Jordan. There has been a clear push for Hal Jordan in all forms of media where Green Lantern shows up.
