"The Hollywood Reporter says that Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake are the three frontrunners for Warner Bros. Pictures' Green Lantern.
Along with director Martin Campbell and producers Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti, Warner Bros. has spent the past five months searching for the actor to play Hal Jordan, the hot-shot Air Force pilot who is chosen by a dying alien to be his successor in an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern.
The trade adds that De Line, Campbell and the studio each had a different favorite among the three finalists, making it difficult to come to a consensus.
The studio is targeting a June 17, 2011 release."
definitely not Justin Timberlake (even if he is a Memphian), he has no business whatsoever being a superhero.
Ryan Reynolds - the obvious choice (to me, he is one of the epitomes of wit, charm and humor, otherwise known as cool) but there's one little problem: Deadpool (how's he's gonna balance two superheroes from two rival comics companies?)
Bradley Cooper - seriously, I don't know enough about this guy. How's he getting all these movie offers when I haven't heard of him? He makes The Hangover and KABOOM! He's getting movie deals up to his head!
As Stephen Colbert would say, "I PREDICTED IT! I PREDICTED IT! I PREDICTED IT!"
Summer 2011, Ryan Reynolds is the Green Lantern of Sector 2814.
Can you hear it?
"In brightest day, in blackest night
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might
Beware my power - Green Lantern's light!"
