    How would Frank Dillane work as Green Lantern?
    Is he truly more of a villain type? Maybe Sinestro instead? Then I envision a really ruthless version.

    But as Warner Bros cast against character, maybe Green Lantern after all?

    I don't like your picks for Hal or Kyle but the rest is very good. Marsden has had his chances as a lead actor and always gives below average performances. He's just a pretty mediocre actor IMO. And, not sure what it is about Malek, but I just don't like him. As a supporting character I guess he's fine, but, I'd prefer a better actor (not necessarily a bigger name, but just a better actor).

    Sterling K. Brown has always been my pick for John Stewart though, great call on that.

    This thread is quite slow.
    Can we come up with more actor suggestions for Hal?
    Elijah Wood, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Gallagher, Rollo Weeks, Michael Angarano, Freddie Highmore etc etc

    I mean if you want actors for Hal Jordan in the DCEU then the only ones that come to mind right now at least for me:

    James Marsden
    Armie Hammer
    Joseph Gordon Levitt
    Jon Hamm
    Karl Urban
    John Krasinski
    Joel Edgerton
    Bradley Cooper
    Jake Gyllenhaal

    Gyllenhaal is the best sugestion there. By far!!! Levitt is no 2.

    Urban must surely be too old now.

    Other actors who have been discussed also in the past that I can actually see as Hal

    Jamie Dornan
    Jack Reynor
    Glenn Howerton


    But then I also think of Alden Ehrenreich who played Han Solo in Solo A Star Wars Story, Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, Glen Powell

    Oh, now it's too many, lol.
    Let's narrow it down to Gyllenhaal, Levitt, Zegers and Liam Aiken.
    With Hedlund as a joker in the game (not the villain, lol)

    Luke Evans just makes too much sense as Sinestro

    Tg11: Maybe.

    What about going younger, and have Frank Dillane as the villain?

    Are we talking a hypothetical movie or the HBO series? Because that changes the casting pool.

    A TV production only cast unknowns

    With Johns producing the HBO Max series, I'm pretty sure all of the focus will go into that instead of any possible films. If the series becomes a hit, then we might see a GLC film down the road a few years if the GenPop's interest in CBMs is still there.

    Yeah a GLC mini series at this point makes sense but they need to tie the series directly to the DCEU which is what Marvel is doing with Disney Plus...Warner Brothers needs to do the same with HBO Max and tie the Lantern corps directly into the DCEU interconnected with the heroes who are a part of the timeline

    I wonder how Snyder Cut JL will tie into Green Lantern HBO Max in this reformed, interconnected shared universe since both will be on HBO Max?

    Weren't they looking for an old Hal Jordan anyway. Caviezel probably fits that age bracket. They could go for the Men in Black dynamic and Tommy Lee Jones was the same age in the first movie that Caviezel is now.

    Doug Liman. He's got action, sci-fi, and comedy chops.

    You want something more serious? Watch The Borne Identity.

    You want comedy? Watch Swingers and Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    You want your Sci-fi cred? Watch Edge of Tommorow.

    Maybe. But he was explained to have on-set problems, when I suggested him for Green Arrow

    So with everything that is going on with race relations and policing, what are the odds a Green Lantern movie/series draws from that, and shows some of the dark underbelly of organized space policing, and efforts to clean it up from the inside? There's often, in modern comics, been sort of an undercurrent of The Guardians being a tad corrupt.
