    If Hal is indeed The Green Lantern. who would you cast as Carol Ferris?
    I think Carol (Star Saphire), is needed for the GL even if Hal is not Green Lantern IMO.

    Emilia Clarke for Carol Ferris!

    Also, to do Star Sapphire justice, you have to use Hal Jordan. Yet another reason why Hal is the only way to go for the lead of the GL movie. He has the relationships with Sinestro and Star Sapphire, two of the biggest GL villains ever. Using John as the main character squanders the potential of both Star Sapphire and Sinestro.

    Star Saphire killed John's wife though in the comics so there is a connection there too to be exploited if they so choose.

    Yeah but my point is the relationship between Hal and Star is far stronger than Star and John's relationship.

    IMO Star should be portrayed more as an antihero, less of a full on villain. IMO Carol should be introduced in the first movie as Hal's love interest, and then she could become the Star Sapphire in the third film, in time to help the other Lanterns against Nekron

    I'll be cool with an unknown actress for the role.

    To make it work they need a very solid cast. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a terrific actress who could fit the role.

    Olivia, hell yes. MEW, hell yes.


    Miles Kunis, ummm no. She's the same in everything and yes, I've seen Black Swan.

    Olivia Wilde I went with her because not only can she act but at the same time action wise she can bring it...watch Tron Legacy if you don't know what I'm talking about

    It'll be tricky to cast Carol til we know who is playing Hal but I wouldn't mind seeing someone out of left field. Constance Wu maybe?

    Obviously whoever plays her can't just be a love interest. They need to be a superhero eventually too

    I don't care who just so long as she's age-appropriate. I know Hollywood is allergic to female leads over the age of 25, but one of the most jarring parts of the first movie was them presenting Blake Lively as Ryan Reynolds' boss and childhood friend. There is not enough suspension of belief in the world.

    MEW is my N.1 (another actor/actress in expect to work for Marvel first) but I really like Patton. Not sure how big a role she would have in a movie centered on Hal and John, though.

    I think it's fair to say Hal would go back to Earth at some point. The thing is, if this movie would partially be about John's origin, then if we get a human Green Lantern in JL1 or more likely JL2, it obviously has to be Hal since John wouldn't have become a Lantern yet. Therefore it's fair to assume that we might briefly see some of Hal's supporting cast, which of course would be revisited in Green Lantern Corps. In short, Carol can totally get some scenes here.

    I second this choice . I think she is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood that also has that approachability about her . Very underrated actress .

    She is breathtaking. By the time the movie comes out she would be around 45, but if they do go with an older Hal, makes total sense for Carol to be older too, after all they are supposed to be the same age. If Lois Lane can be played by an actress in her 40s, they can do that with any other DC love interest. In the milf department, you can't ask for more than Paula Patton.

    Yeah. If they cast someone like Aaron Eckhart or Justin Theroux, a 45-year-old Carol would be fine. Hell, Paula could pass for a woman in her early 30s so the age thing doesn't even matter.

    Emilia Clarke as Carol Ferris if they go with a younger one but an older Carol I would go with Michelle Monaghan
