Warners President Says Green Lantern Movie Is Next

Green Lantern might be the next superhero movie out from Warner Bros.

I've reported some news already about the Green Lantern movie.  There is the chance that Superman could have a cameo.  There's also been some concept art that has been released.  We haven't had any firm news on who could play the role. got a chance to speak to the President of Warner Bros., Alan Horn.  They quickly asked him a few questions about upcoming projects.  It seems we could see a Superman movie within the next couple years.  Chris Nolan is not going to be rushed into making the next Batman movie.

When asked about the next superhero property they'll release, Horn said, "I think Green Lantern is probably the best guess but I can't promise it at this moment."

Let's hope this will be the case.  I'd love to see how they take on Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps.  You know they have to have Sinestro in it too.  Will they change the way he looks?  I'm not sure how a pinkish/purplish dude will look on the big screen.  And they better have the mustache on him too.

It's gonna be tough.  Do they focus more on Hal Jordan on Earth or out in space with the Corps.  Guggenheim has already stated that Oa will look amazing.  I think having lots of space scenes could make some movie goers hesitate over seeing it.  I'm talking about the non-comic fans.  Sure we say, screw those idiots for not having the common sense to actually read comics, but the reality is there's more non-reading movie goers.  That's what Hollywood is thinking about.  They're the ones that will help cover the cost of the budget and make the movie a success.

I totally agree with DC taking on a Green Lantern film. I think for the role of Hal Jordan, they should have either Mark Wahlberg or Michael C. Hall from Dexter. They're both good actors.
Sinestro would be a good person to have on a movie. He could be played by Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger actor) with magenta-coloured make-up and his hair dyed black. I wonder who'll be the Guardians of the Universe? Probably use CGI and have voice actors

I refused to post the rumor of the kid (Anton Yelchin) playing Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation was up for Hal.  Thankfully it was shot down.  He just doesn't seem...old/mature enough for Hal.

Im thinking......okay dont shoot me down....

Christain Bale.......anyone?

Its a pretty hard role to cast cause Jordans going to have to be old enough to pull of the whole maturity but hell have to young enough to be commercail and not old!!! its a hard one alright!

I think I heard that a teaser will be on 'The Black Freighter' DVD, could be wrong.
