RUMOR: Chris Pine Is Once Again Linked To GREEN LANTERN Role

RUMOR: Chris Pine Is Once Again Linked To GREEN LANTERN Role

A short while ago we heard that Warner Bros. may have already cast an actor to play Green Lantern in their burgeoning cinematic universe, and though at the time all signs pointed John Stewart wearing the ring, if this latest rumor turns out to be true we might just be seeing Hal Jordan again.


Last month, Latino review's El Mayimbe said he'd heard Warner Bros. had settled on a new actor to play Green Lantern in the DC Cinematic Universe, and that it was looking like it would be the John Stewart incarnation of the character. Well, now he's offered an update, and the name he's heard "floating around" is Star Trek actor Chris Pine. "The name I keep hearing & floating around, is Chris Pine for Hal Jordan. Yes, Captain Kirk. Again, this is still just a RUMOR hence UNCONFIRMED. Been hunting this one for a while so the search is still ongoing."

This makes it sound like a decision hasn't been finalized yet, but perhaps an official announcement is near. Pine was actually in the running for this role back when Ryan Reynolds was cast as Green Lantern and his name has popped up several times since, so it makes sense that the studio would still have him in mind. If he does wind up playing the character in this new batch of films, would you be okay with Hal Jordan again or were you hoping for Stewart? Let us know what you think in the usual place.
