Well, it’s been officially confirmed at SDCC 2015 that the Green Lantern solo film coming June 19, 2020 will in fact be a Green Lantern Corps film. So we get to see more than one Green Lantern…Let’s get to fan-casting!
Now there is a rumor that GL Corps will not only feature Hal but also John and Kyle. It’s also said Hal will be more along the lines of Ben Affleck’s Batman age, while John and Kyle will be younger. So I tried to vary this fan-cast in case that holds up. IMO, that rumor is ideal since many want to see John Stewart as the League’s GL BUT we can’t just skip over Hal. He’s the OG JL member and the first GL. Anyways, let me know who you would pick (or comment if I missed someone)!
*Chris Pine has been removed as he is officially playing Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman. He was at #1 with 16 votes!*
I don’t know the probability of John being the GL they pick for the current DCCU, (or maybe they’ll make a Green Lantern Corps movie with all GL’s, wouldn’t that be awesome?), but I want to still fan-cast the role. (Lol, I guessed it!)
As always, these ideas come from fans and my own. I’ve also added actors who have expressed interest in the role, (DeMark, Michael Jai White, Lance, and Tyrese). Idris Elba has expressed interest as well but we have to see how things go with his character in Marvel. Tyrese has been particularly expressive in his interest for the role and has confirmed he’s met a couple times already with Warner Bros about it. It doesn’t mean he’s got the role, but it does mean he’s in talks, along with maybe some others? The Corps movie isn’t even going to be filming for awhile so I would assume a casting for John Stewart won’t be for awhile…But let me know who you would pick!
Guy was probably the hardest to fan-cast. Of course I incorporated fans’ ideas but I found I had to fill a lot more of my own than usual. Part of the reason is because actors who are currently in an MCU or DCCU movie were fan-cast for the character and a number were too old now (and particularly, later) for the role. Although we don’t know if Guy would show up in the Corps film, we can still fan-cast!
So I tried to stick with a bit of a younger group for Kyle. Out of the 4 GL’s, he should be the youngest.I tried to get as many fan ideas on here but it was difficult finding anyone who wasn’t already in a Marvel/DC film or show. Side note, Ricardo tweeted about joining the DC cinematic universe and tagged Batman v Superman and Justice League, specifically. Haven’t figured out if he really is joining DC or if he’s promoting himself for a role like many others have done/been doing…Anyways, let me know who you would pick!
*UPDATE – Tyler Hoechlin has been removed due to his casting in the CW’s Supergirl as Superman. Milo Ventimiglia removed due to age limit.*
So which Green Lantern do you want to see join the DCCU? Hal, John, Guy, Kyle? Let me know in the comments your thoughts and if I left any actors out! (Also, let me know what other characters you want added to this fan-cast!)
Christina Wren is currently playing a “Major Carrie Ferris” in the DCEU, first appearing in Man of Steel and returned for Batman v Superman, rumored for an appearance in Justice League as well. She is potentially Carol Ferris, either renamed or nicknamed Carrie. If so, there isn’t a need to fan-cast for this character then…We’ll see if she will eventually become her!
Yes! Yes! Like, absolutely! I mean, super-huge fan. Would die to be a superhero. My whole childhood growing up, I wanted to be a superhero and we didn’t really have the female superheroes who were in the limelight at the time….To get to grow up and do that would be really a dream come true, but I’m waiting as much as anyone else. (Wren on Carrie Ferris being in Green Lantern Corps movie)
One of the good things that came out of 2011’s GL movie was Mark Strong as Sinestro. He’s a fantastic actor and I wouldn’t mind seeing him return in the role. If not, there are a number of other actors that could do the role justice.
I figured that Soranik should be around Kyle’s and still young enough to be the right age as Sinestro’s daughter. I don’t know how soon we’ll see her character in the DCEU but why not fan-cast her in case she does.
