Ryan Gosling to portray Hal Jordan/Green Lantern??

"Green Lantern casting update

El Mayimbe here…

So yes the word on the Green Lantern is that it is moving along and that rehearsals should start in February for a Spring 2009 shoot.

Earlier, I had received word from someone that the Green Lantern choices have been nailed down and that they were considering Seth Green, Justin Long, and David Boreanaz.

I was like WTF?!

Confused, I went to my guys to get to the bottom of what is going on and to see if it was true.

Thankfully, hell no, not true.

BUT…I did manage to find out something.

You know who the studio wants to wear Abin Sur’s ring and take up the mantle of The Green Lantern?

From my trusted source within the WB, I’m hearing…Ryan Gosling.

Personally, I think a really hot choice! Ryan Gosling is a dope actor and would kill the role. Remember folks that he is an Oscar nominee. Green Lantern/Hal Jordan in the script is 27 and currently Ryan is 27 (his 28th birthday is next month).

Mind you, I don’t know if an offer has been made, and if WB is into it now with Ryan’s people, but once again Gosling is who I’m hearing the WB wants for Hal Jordan.

Hal Jordan is a fictional character, a DC Comics superhero. He is the second Green Lantern and arguably the most famous hero to bear that name. Created by John Broome and Gil Kane, he first appeared in Showcase #22 (October 1959).

Hal Jordan's revamp as the Green Lantern was one of many old DC Comics characters to emerge in the Silver Age of comics. Like many of his contemporaries, Hal Jordan became more identified with his heroic identity than the previous iterations of the characters. Controversy erupted among comic book readers in 1994 when Hal Jordan became supervillain Parallax and Kyle Rayner replaced him as the Green Lantern.

Jordan underwent a number of further changes in the 1990s including dying and later returning as a new incarnation of The Spectre. Hal Jordan returned to the role of Green Lantern in 2004's Green Lantern: Rebirth miniseries and is currently the protagonist of the current volume of Green Lantern.

So what do you guys think?

In the meantime, you can follow my updates on TWITTER."

This is not officially confirmed, and only a rumor. Regardless, I wouldn't mind Gosling, he would just need to beef up. He just seems kind of small to me.

Even though it's a rumor I'm hoping it ends up being true: mainly because DC needs to get other properties out there than just Batman and Superman.

That sounds kind of funny seeing as how he did play a young Hercules.

That was the main problem with most of the TV audiences when they had reservations about Gosling portraying Young Hercules.

He's a good, solid actor, and a good casting choice. His acting and screen presence has improved considerably since his teen years.

If this pans out, I think Gosling will make a great GL. And I'm sure he'll bulk up sufficiently.

Re: Ryan Gosling to portray Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

Thought there was huge support here for Ben Browder as Hal Jordan?

Would've loved that...eve though he's older, it could really work in the storyline...(i.e. "aging" test pilot who is fading away in his career as test pilot gets a whole new adventure...)

Browder isn't a movie star. I'd love to see him on some good TV based sci fi tho.

I'm more interested on who they pick for the director. Hopefully the new director will good like Favreau and Nolan were.

neither are alot of folks in movies .

Gosling seems like a good choice. Ryan Reynolds might also work. I get these two guys mixed up all the time.

He's a great actor. This should be awesome, so long as they let him keep his sense of humor.

Gosling as Hal jordan would be very nice. Similar to how we have a legit actor in Christian Bale playing Batman.

Not some no-name/underwear model like for Superman.

Re: Ryan Gosling to portray Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

Personally I think David Boreanaz would be a better choice. He may not be a box office draw, but neither is Gosling, really. Critically acclaimed actor, yes, but he doesn't really put too many bums on seats. Boreanaz has the acting chops for the part, IMHO, and looks the part too. But if Gosling bulks up, I'm sure he'll do fine - as someone else said, better him than an underwear model type.
