I really think we're going to get the New 52 lineup. WB/DC has exhausted a lot of resources on popularizing all the members of the New 52 lineup, realizing those characters in live action will be a big pay off for them.

Yea Hal has always got the push. Moreso than the other Lanterns. But people outside of GL fans still don't give a **** about him.

Speaks volumes really.

I'm just telling you my definition of modern and how I meant it, no need to argue semantic in such a case. I'm merely suggesting people under 30 that grew up on those cartoons have a large affinity for Stewart..

How many people cared about Bane outside of Batman fans?

Then The Dark Knight Rises happened.

No one really cares about Bane now either. He had some memes for a while thats about it.

And Hal has already had a movie. A poor one granted, but no one outside of GL readers gives a crap about the guy. His most interesting aspect got retconned and the only other thing he's got going for him is he was the first Lantern.

I'm going to state my opinion as fact. This will make people think my argument is foolproof!

Bane still has memes being made about him, 4chan is always infested with them. Arkham Origins retconned the Arkham Bane to be more like The Dark Knight Rises than Batman & Robin.

I'm also fairly sure if you were to ask people to list villains of Batman Bane would now be in the top 5 listed.

Frankly,I think people outside of GL fans don't give a **** about the GL corps in general.He's always been the toughest sell regardless.The character is like the Thor of the JL.

Hey i'm not saying my opinion is fact.

But this isn't an opinion; after the disastrous GL movie Hal Jordan is either forgotten about, or poison. And even though DC have pushed the guy more than any other character apart from Bats and Supes, no one has connected with him.

It's hard to tell why outside of pure opinions. My opinion is; he's lame and either a bore or irritating beyond belief.

Maybe the entire GL concept is just too silly for people outside of comic book fans to swallow.

Nobody even went to see Green Lantern, which is for the best really.

The best way to do Green Lantern now would be to have him as "WB's Hulk". Let his character and team interaction shine through, and have a small appearance in another character's film. Let the audience decide whether they like the guy first then try and sell the full concept. If not, it's hardly a huge loss.

I think Hal works best in the Justice League, and with Barry, primarily. All the Lanterns obviously cookie cutter personalities, but John's I find the most boring and a role that could be filled by another character.

EDIT- I do think if they set up multiple JL teams, John should be included on JLA, with Hal on JL.

Yup. My only exposure to Hal was the SuperFriends repeats on USA when I was little but John, Kyle, Guy, and even Alan friggin' Scott appealed to me more than Hal ever did and possibly ever will.

What is it people find unappealing about his personality? Also, what was it that showed you those traits?

Personally, I've only found John compelling in one story: Mosaic, because he was very un-John in that. Neither the Black Power caricature or the generic military guy appealed to me.

Mosiac was nothing short of awesome. Now, I'm off to re-read it

This Hal needs to be a radical departure from the Ryans Reynolds version. Make him the grittier, older Hal from the GL Rebirth days. Serious, stoic.

Someone in the same age range as Affleck's Batman, with the same veteran wisdom. Have him be established. No need to see the GL origins again.

Give him a far less cartoony appearance. No lame CGI suit. No with something that visually separates him from the Reynolds version completely. Something that audiences will see as a new Hal from the Snyderverse.




Without the white eyes of course. The character can emote better if we see his real eyes.

I really liked the way they did the Reynolds GL suit.
Well,I liked the concept more than the execution.
imo it would have looked insanely better if it was an actual costume or full body prosthetic with CG enhancements rather than entirely CG.

It looking like a second skin created from energy just makes so much sense.
And it sets him apart from the other heroes.

I have no doubt that if we get a Green Lantern in the DCCU, that Snyder would make his costume badass and better executed than in that crapfest of a Green Lantern movie.

i went with hal, but i think they'll go with kyle. no offense but cyborg's already going to be in the league, possibly MM, will more than likely be disguised as a black dude, so they should add a little brown to it with kyle.

I figure the GL suit will probably be a tight muscle suit like the Kryptonians and Batfleck, with muted colours like the MoS suit.

Dark green and black.

I wouldn't have minded armor, but I think Snyder prefers tights that show off the male form.

that suit sucks^

could someone manip this suit so it doesn't have the mask, and so the chest emblem is closer to the color of the green on the rest of the suit? With those adjustments, this suit would be perfect
