    Great casting. He did a good job as Steve Trevor as well...plus he really wanted to be GL in the movie.

    I wonder who they will get for the CG TV series.

    Damn! Why couldn't it have been Ryan Reynolds' voice in emerald knights and Nathan Fillion as Hal in the movie? This just makes it hurt even more.

    The most affordable VA they could get is Nolan North who did Hal in the CO2E DTV.

    Mr. Fillion is the second Firefly actor to play Hal. First one was Adam Baldwin back in JLU.

    They are CGing the entire costume and the characters in the new movie, if they can make Jeff Bridges younger, they could take a few years off fillian.

    I've seen the whole first season of Castle.


    I'd still take him as Hal Jordan over Ryan Reynolds.


    Mind you, dress old Ryan up in red and slap some gold boots and little lightning bolts on him, and you have The Flash (Wally West) par excellence.

    He physically can't play the part anymore.

    Carol Ferris perhaps, or maybe another Green Lantern such as Katma Tui, Areisa or Boodika

    How'd you figure? He seems rather spry to me.

    Looks cool, though if they're going to do the same art style I would rather have this just be a sequel to First Flight.

    Look at the cloths (loose fit) they put him on Castle, and look at the Captain Mal outfit from Firefly and Serenity (quite form fitting). He's 43 and starting to go pudgy. Sure he's kind of jowly, always has been. Watch 2 guys a girl and a pizza place. But now it's got more pronounced and I can't see him doing it anymore.

    And? A bit of physical conditioning for the role is not out of the question. After all Green Lanterns are renowned for their strength of will rather than body.


    I mean this is all breeze shooting since the role has been handed to Ryan Reynolds and indeed the movie comes out this year, but after comparing trailers as they stand I think the director of GL has missed a few fine points of Hal Jordan's personality.

    I also reiterate my previous point: Ryan Reynolds would be a MAGNIFICENT live actor for The Flash (Wally West).

    How can you have the Sinestro Corps in this movie if Sinestro is still a Green Lantern?

    Are we sure they didn't just repackage "First Flight?"
