Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Who really wanted him as Hal Jordan GL in the first place?

This is only a positive bit of news is it not?

Simple solution: pull a Justice League cartoon and bring in John Stewart. Distances itself from the 2011 film, emphasizes that a "Green Lantern" is more like an intergalactic cop than one superhero's identity, allows for a more stern figure than contrast with the more light-hearted Flash, and of course, adds some diversity. Sorted.

Have they ever considered or asked Bruce Timm to get involved with live action DC movies?
Does Timm do live action? If so I would love to see this.
I think Warner Bros. has always maintained a "Let the cartoon people do their thing, and we'll do our thing" when it comes to live-action projects.

It's also pretty telling back when Batman and Robin was released, they delayed the direct-to-video animated Sub-Zero movie (which also had Mr. Freeze and Batgirl) several months because Sub-Zero was a better movie than B&R, and WB didn't want to be upstaged by an "inferior"
project. This is even more galling when you realize there was B&R merchandise released that has the movie characters done up in an animated style!

Not to mention that it gets rid of one uninteresting character and replaces him with a more interesting one.

Replacing who plays the green lantern is one of the easiest things a "Justice League" movie could do. They have 3 human choices

Or they could drop Green Lantern and not use him at all. His movie was a flop, the character isn't well known and his powers will eat the cgi budget and in return we'll either get silly constructs or a collection of green shields, beams or bubbles.

I still want the big three plus Cyborg and Zatanna.

I really think an Iron Man type of character like Cyborg would only reinforce the you copied Avengers crowd with the general audience. Would much rather have John Stewart on the team as GL.

Just to clarify, though, "the cartoon people" are also Warner Bros., just a different division thereof. So it's not WB vs. someone else, but WB's live-action feature unit vs. their animation unit.

That's a fair enough position, although I still think it's likely we'll see one of the GLs in one form or another.

I still want the big three plus Cyborg and Zatanna.
Ehh, that's not really a line-up that's inspiring. Cyborg's an okay character, especially in the Wolfman/Perez NTT stuff, but I've never really liked this push in recent years to make him one of the Big Seven. Zatanna's good too, but I think introducing magic and a sorceress is going WAY too far for a first film, especially if this is going to include Bale's Batman or even Cavill's Superman. We're not quite in the age of Dr. Strange / Dr. Fate films quite yet where superheroes doing spells is no big deal. Introducing it with a minor character in a film introducing like 3-4 other new people is too much.

Just in general though, I think both are pretty low on my list of who'd I want to see in a JL movie. I'd like a line-up as close to the Big Seven as possible. Aquaman is (sadly) out-of-the-picture due to the perpetual mockery he's received from pop culture. J'onn could go either way; he's expendable, but if they decide to do White Martians, him hiding on Earth would make a great impetus for the team to come together. Supes/Bats/WW are a given. GL is likely although they'll definitely distance themselves from the 2011 film. And the Flash would make a great POV character, the likable, down-to-Earth, former police scientist, witnessing the gods around him.

Hell no! If those are the two to be used, let's have some equal opportunity objectifying here. Zatanna in those fishnets, but Cyborg's bare legs for the ladies (and plenty men)...

I liked the Green Lanter movie and I do not want to see Reynolds replaced. I think he himself played the character well.
