    I wish I could correct my spelling on the title, I was in the middle of a phone conference when I posted this and not entirely paying attention. I think the director did a good job on Casino, with the right script this could be good.

    Green Lantern has so much untapped potential for the big screen, it's ridiculous. It's Star Wars meets superheroes! I just hope they stay true to the source material and don't change things too much. Keep it about Hal and Sinestro and that will be a good start.

    I have tried to block that from my memory. Thank you for reminding me of it. :cry  :tongue: 

    Please don't screw this up, please don't screw this up. Keep it simple with Hal and Sinestro and you've got a winner right there.

    Best thing would be to just adapt that last GL arc prior to Blackest Night when Geoff Johns re-tells how Hal became a GL. Which sounds pretty close to what they are doing.
    And I'm going to say this too, even though I'm sure most will dis-agree. I really, really think Ben Affleck as Hal Jordan would be great for some reason.

    I don't care for the Hector Hammond being the main bay guy, mainly because I have the feeling they are going to make him generic.

    No it should be Nathan Fillian or David Boreonez.

    I like both of those actors. But Fillion is more of the everyman type of hero or anti-hero if you will type of actor. I know he has done more than just Firefly and Serenity, but I believe that is what most of the movie going audience probably knows him from. Boreanez just doesn't strike me as the Hal type.

    I guess I base my wanting of Affleck as Hal on his characters in Pearl Harbor and Armageddon. Both of those characters were arrogant and hot-headed but in the end matured. I really think Affleck can pull of the best Hal. He has the body type and physicality for the role too. Another thing is that it wouldn't be a bad thing to attach a well known name to this. Batman got Bale, Iron-Man got Downey, and those worked out well.

    I really can't think of any other actor well-known or otherwise that would be a good fit for Hal. Maybe Jaime Bamber from BSG, but I really don't think that works either.

    David Boreanaz already played Green Lantern in New Frontier and did a good job. Hal started off as a bad boy. So either actor could do it. Affleck was Daredevil.

    Providing a voice and actually playing the character on screen are two different things. I would still like to see a late 20's actor that could play Hal. I just can't think of one.

    Campbell is a fantastic director. GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro, Royale...I think he can pull it off. Can't wait!

    The thought of a Green Lantern movie has me excited. GL was probably my second favorite super hero growing up, though I didn't really know about the other GL's for most of it.
