Dermot Mulroney to play Hal Jordan?

#1 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

it's true :D

Following visits by Superman, Green Arrow and the Flash earlier this fall, Green Lantern is the next super-friend to guest-star on the CW's Saturday-morning serial The Batman. Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding) will voice the hero who shows up in the Dec. 8 episode to enlist the Caped Crusader's help in battling arch-nemesis Sinestro.

Mulroney has deep ties to these superheroes. His brother and sister-in-law, Kieran and Michelle Mulroney, penned the upcoming live-action film Justice League of America, which includes Batman and Green Lantern. "Kieran and I grew up reading DC Comics," Mulroney says. "We had a whole system where, once a week, we'd take a trip to the little store that sold the comics. I have a couple of brothers, and we'd fight over who got which issue. There's a long history of comics in the family."

There are many different Green Lanterns in comic lore, but the version Mulroney plays is perhaps the most iconic: test pilot Hal Jordan, who has a somewhat uneasy relationship with the Bat. "I really liked the dynamic between them," Mulroney says. "They're fighting for the same cause, but there are some personality conflicts. That was a fun part to play."

i have only one word... "SWEET!"

"Methos, its not as bad as this child's dribble."

at least this 'dribble' is actually making 'canon' relationships and the characters are being done reasonably faithfully.

i know Methos had a jack black/GL pic, but does anyone know if theres a GL movie coming out? (prays its a serious movie rather than jack black)

#20 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

the GL movie has been written tons of times and each time is has stalled...

rumor is it will eventually get finished, but i'm not holding my breath...

it'll probably be sometime after the JLA movie, if that ever gets finished lol
