    Martin Campbell, who recently directed 007's Casino Royale is the director on the film. I'm unaware of who is writing it, but that part is crucial to getting Green Lantern right. They also seem to be looking for way younger actors than I think they should go...

    Emile Hirsch already pass on the film, and it looks like they might be looking at Anton Yelchin (Chekov in the new Star Trek film)

    Who do you guys think would make a great Hal Jordan?

    Channing Tatum would make a good Hal Jordan.

    Green Lantern is my favorite super hero. I kinda always root for the underdog, but I think this could be pretty scary. I think it's gonna be either Hulk 2003 or Hulk 2008. (that make sense?) Although the problem with Hulk 2008 is that while it was good it was really just "ok" and its numbers at the box office reflect that.
    Additionally I think that Hulk is just one of those things that is just flat out hard to do on the big screen. I'm inclined to sorta feel the same way about Green Lantern --it's gonna be tough to do WELL.

    I can't imagine who I'd want to play Green Lantern. You'd figure that you'd need a big name because GL may not be as well known as Supes or Bats but no one comes to mind.

    I just got an image of Sinestro having GL pinned down, telling him to give in,
    And Lantern replying: "Goonies...Never...Say...Die!"

    Fuck me, I'm bored.

    Pine And Brolin might not be bad choices.

    I don't think Green Lantern is quite as popular as Iron Man was before the movie.


    I want me a Flash movie, but that'd probably suck dick:sad2:

    Pine doesnt seem that bad I suppose :dunno:. Even though GL is one of my favorites I still think its going to be more on the Hulk 2003 scale unfortunately

    Better not be fucking Pine. No problems with him, but i'd prefer a bit older Jordan and one that doesn't look all too boyish.

    what they pulled off with the fucking Lord of the Rings trilogy would have EASILLY been made to work with Hulk, if people would actually listen.

    Get a big man such as Brock Lesnar, paint him green, a bit of prosthetics on the face to make him a little more hulk-like, and make him bigger than other people... It worked with the guy who played fucking Gimli, that motherfucker is like 6'4" in real life, yet he played a dwarf next to people his same height or shorter.

    So why the fuck wouldn't it work the other way around? (other than budget :o )
