The Shortlist of The Green Lantern Corps Shows Big Names in The Mix

Green Lantern Corps is still early in development, but there are big names on the shortlist for this movie, notably Hal Jordan. Thanks to via The Wrap, Warner Bros. is pushing some serious star power for the film. Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joel McHale, Arnie Hammer, Bradley Cooper, and even Ryan Reynolds is on this list for Hal Jordan. This is some powerhouse casting, especially with Ryan Reynolds in the mix for this film. Green Lantern Corps for what little we know is already being pushed to be a relatively big movie with these names. I got my own curiosities here on this one.

Green Lantern Corps is huge on the priority list for Warner Bros. if these names are in the mix.

Now there are more than a few surprises on this list, Ryan Reynolds being the biggest one. Even with his Deadpool success, it could still be weird to see Reynolds back as Hal Jordan again. ¬†Joel McHale is an oddball name in this mix, he’s a growing star but not sure if he’s on this level for Green Lantern Corps. At this point, we still don’t know much about this film. We are in the early stages of this movie so this could all change on a dime. I doubt we’ll end up seeing Tom Cruise but they call it Hollyweird for a reason, anything is possible.

So what do you all think about the possible casting choices for this film? Is it strange that we’re learning about casting before much else about the film? Feel free to let us know in the comment section below what you all think. Green Lantern Corps is already creating conversation and we’ll know more in the months to come. The possible shortlist of Hal Jordan is only the beginning of the Green Lantern Corps journey.
