Tyrese was cool in the Fast & Furious movies, but that's not the guy that I'd pick to headline Green Lantern. I could rattle off 5 other actors straight off the dome that could do a better job AND be a better fit for the role. Plus, I'm not sure of TG's acting chops. Outside of playing a clown or a gangsta, I haven't seen much range, and since the first movie flopped hard, this isn't the movie that you'd want to experiment with.

Ive said it b4, and I'll say it again:

Cross is cool, although I've only seen him in '24' as Curtis, and whenever he spoke, it was like he was whispering.

I still say that Michael Jai White would completely own this role.

Definitely, especially if they emphasize the Marine over the architect.

I hate to admit it I would almost go see him in Dawn of Justice or whatever because I like him so much. He will alwyas be Black Dynamite to me though."Guardians how many times have I told you not to interupt me when I am doing my Kung-Fu"!

Which, sadly, is what they have been doing for YEARS in the comic, to the point that I wasn't sure his architecture career hadn't been retconned out until (I think) it got a mention some time recently. (Or maybe I just imagined that.)

So, yeah, that seems a likely tack to take in a movie.

Your picture isn't working for me, and when I try to open it in a new tab, it says "referral denied".

which is why Id choose Cross over MJW; his work on The L Word leads me to think he's capable of doing *both*, whereas Ive not seen the other do something which didnt involve him being ACTION GUY (not that hes bad at it or anything....)

and personally, I rather like the architect -aspect of JS more.....

this role isnt kinetic enuff for an actor of his caliber; Id see him as Dr. Mist or Icon, *maybe* Mr. Terrific II or Hardware......altho I think he'd make a GREAT Holocaust.

The reason I think Hal Jordan should be the Green Lantern in the Justice League is because DC has made it clear that Hal is the main GL of the JL since the New52 started. Comics, animated movies, video games, toys, etc. have all shown Hal as the GL of the Justice League so it wouldn't make sense for WB to suddenly change it now.

Absolutely - too much time, energy and money has been put into establishing Green Lantern as a recognizable brand to throw the baby out with the bath water just because one movie didn't do as well as it could have.

I agree completely. I'd love to see John an Guy done right on film in GL movies as part of Hal's supporting cast, but Hal needs to be the main guy.

I think Tyrese would make a fine John STewart, but he can't be singing in the movie.And who would play Fatality?

I never said only Hal should be a GL. I said Hal should be the Green Lantern in the Justice League movie because he's already in the JL in everything else.
