DC is Considering Ryan Reynolds (and Five Others) for Hal Jordan


Could Ryan Reynolds return to play Hal Jordan? According to a new report he is one of the actors on the shortlist for the upcoming Green Lantern Corps.

According to The Wrap, Reynolds is on a short list along with Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal. Honestly given those choices, I’d like to see Reynolds return.

Confession time, I don’t hate the Green Lantern movie. I feel it spent way too much time on Earth, but it got the mythos of the Lantern Corps and the various Lanterns right. It felt pulled right out of Geoff John’s epic run on the book, and because of that I can’t hate the movie despite its problems. I feel like it’s really unfairly maligned, and Reynolds wasn’t one of the problems in the movie.

Hopefully DC will determine who will be their Hal Jordan and we’ll hear the casting at Comic Con in July.
