The DCEU has a lot in store for the next few years, and though they’ve gotten off to a rocky start their plans to bring their heroes to the big screen is still happening as expected. Regardless of how you may feel about Warner Bros. and DC’s budding film universe, excitement is still to be had as you know you want to see these guys come to life. Below are some of the actors that we envision reciting the Green Lantern oath: “In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!”
Jake Gyllenhaal as Hal Jordan
Jake Gyllenhaal is no stranger to the fantastical, having starred as “Dastan” in Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, so we don’t see why thia would be much of a stretch. Gyllenhaal has grown to be quite the actor with films such as Prisoners and Nightcrawler serving as platforms to show off his range, and the guy has an amazing presence when onscreen. While superheroes aren’t in his repertoire, Gyllenhaal’s name almost always makes the shortlist for heroes as far as fan casting is concerned, with Spider-Man and Batman being the most common. To see someone of Gyllenhaal’s caliber take the lead role in a film about space police is surely going to perk some ears and his Oscar worthy talent would match up nice alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman in future DCEU films.
