    Classic WB, putting the cart before the horse. “Don’t worry guys! We’ll tie everything together in future movies, TV shows, etc.!” Where have I heard that before?

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have casting!



    On the one hand, he’s a great get. But... Guy should be uglier.

    I could see Kyle or even a younger Hal maybe, but real trouble seeing him as Guy

    The only casting I’m really invested is Jessica Cruz. Rosa Salazar is my top pick to play Jessica. I think she would knock it out of the park.

    To be fair, if AHS is good for anything, it gets to show the range of the lead actors from season to season. And the first time I ever saw Finn, he was playing the dorkiest little sociopath alive, so I think he can pull of Guy’s... quirks. And in fact, I’m actually happy that they didn’t just give him one of the blandly good looking roles.

    I just hope hair and make-up does their part on this one.

    I love this, I think he's a strong actor. I haven't seen him in any smug roles, but it's not hard to imagine him as Guy for some reason. Annoyingly pretty can easily be turned into *****y, and he's got that big ol' jaw. I hope they don't hold back on the hair.

    This show still sounds like a silly fanboy suggestion. "Imagine if they did Green Lantern on HBO!" Crazy that it's really happening.

    Wittrock is a decent get for them, Berlanti must be beside himself; he has the looks that Berlanti likes plus he's a cut above most of the actors Berlanti would have worked with previously.

    This casting is jarring as hell for me from a visual standpoint. Gardner should be nowhere near this good-looking. I was hoping for a David Harbour type.

    Ha! The last time we saw any live action Green Lantern on tv, it was a Guy Gardner with dark hair!

    Weird casting, at first glance, but thinking about it, he could do it easily

    Despite not looking a damn thing like Guy, I’m ok with this. Partially because I’m sick of seeing Wittrock fancast for characters like Dick Grayson or Superman, as I feel despite being a good actor, he just has too much of a smarmy vibe....which is perfect for Guy.

    So I guess that report about the Lantern line-up from before (and the whole “Lanterns of different decades” concept )was accurate. Can’t say I’m thrilled about that, tbh. I get why we can’t have Hal or John, but I wish we’d at least get Kyle. Oh well. Nice to finally have some forward motion at least. Now gimme the Jessica Cruz casting, please!

    To be fair, we don’t know for sure that we won’t.

    I see the Snyder fans are being very Snyder fan-y about this.

    Hopefully Wittrock is able to rock the MOE HOWARD haircut.
    That's what matters most to me. :D

    Finn is a great actor, so this casting gives me some hope. I’d rather he was playing Hal but I’m sure he can pull off Guy. Curious to see who they cast as Alan.

    Oh, not a choice I was expecting but I think he’s super talented and he will be perfect for this so I’m very excited. I just saw him in Judy and he was really good

    Did I hear somewhere that the plan for this series is to have each episode focus on one Lantern? If so that’d be just like the Emerald Knights animated movie which is one of my favorites.

    I think all we've heard is that it's focusing on different Lanterns in different decades. But it wouldn't surprise me if they each got their own episodes.

    Here are the supposed (and looking increasingly more likely) character breakdowns of the main characters that have been floating around for the past several months:

    Not sure I'd ever describe Wittrock as a "hulking mass of masculity" but ok. :funny:
