Despite the lukewarm reception for the original Green Lantern movie, the character is one of the most exciting and mysterious parts of the new DCEU. That extends to the casting of Hal Jordan as well, a role that some would like to see given to Charlie Hunnam.
Hunnam addressed those rumors in a recent interview with Gordon Hayden after getting a question from the fans. When asked "when are you going to be Green Lantern?", Hunnam said "You know people, you know I'm not a comic book guy really, I don't know those comic books. People bring me, I must like look like him or something like that, look like the guy in the comic books because people bring that up to me all the time and I have no idea what any of you are talking about." When Hayden point out it would be a great role, seeing as they are thinking about rebooting it, Hunnam said "I'll have to have a sniff about it. Maybe I'll do a bit of a google search about it to see who this Green Lantern chap is."
The most persistent rumor continues to be that Hal Jordan will be played by Armie Hammer. The actor has teased his involvement (or want of involvement) on social media for awhile now, but nothing has been confirmed. Fans do know that a Green Lantern will be showing up in Justice League, but it likely won't be Hal Jordan or any of the well-known earth Lanterns.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).
The DCEU continues when Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 2, 2017, followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020.
