Armie Hammer took time out from talking about his Sundance movie “Call Me by Your Name” to address the report that he is on a shortlist of actors who DC Entertainment is considering for the role of Hal Jordan in “Green Lantern Corps.” “I saw the reporting too,” Hammer told TheWrap during an interview in Park City, Utah. “That’s the first I’ve heard of it,” added the actor, whose broken arm was in a brace. (And no, his cast isn’t housing any hidden secrets on the matter.) As TheWrap previously reported, Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, »

This week, Neil Calloway is not happy with the lack of imagination when it comes to casting…
With the big news on Friday (and I’m not talking about Penguin Awareness Day), you may have missed the story about the potential casting for the forthcoming Green Lantern movie. If you did miss it, you won’t be surprised by the names that are being touted for the role.
It was reported that Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Armie Hammer, Bradley Cooper, Joel McHale, and Ryan Reynolds were all in contention, with James Marsden later added to the list. Now, you can take this two ways; one, it’s meaningless speculation – what football supporters would call “paper talk” when a player is linked to their club – and the second just shows the paucity of ideas in Hollywood. You could put my mother in the room and she’d come up with those names. »

Rumors abound that the list of people Warner Bros wants to play Green Lantern in their cinematic DC universe is down to six people. Come inside to check out who it might be!
Multiple sources are claiming that the new Green Lantern Corps movie is closer to picking an actor to play Hal Jordan. Last week they had settled on David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to pen the script and announcing that the movie would be using Green Lantern’s Hal Jordan and John Stewart, who Deadline felt the need to remind us is African-American. Well now a list saying Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper, Joel McHale, Armie Hammer, Tom Cruise, and Ryan Reynolds. And while this is very early in the planning allow me a moment to give my opinion on each of these actors. The following views are not representative of Cinelinx.com and are Jason The X’s alone. »

According to The Wrap, DC Entertainment are looking at six big actors to potentially fill the role of Hal Jordan/ Green Lantern in the planned Green Lantern Corps movie, which David Goyer and Justin Rhodes are writing for a 2020 release.
Those actors are: Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal. Yes, they’re aiming high, but no talks have been entered into with any actor as yet. This is pure rumour.
Ryan Reynolds last played the character of Hal Jordan/ Green Lantern in Martin Campbell’s 2011 movie. He’s now busy with the Deadpool series, so a return to the role is doubtful, but stranger things have happened.

Green Lantern likely won’t appear until 2019’s Justice League: Part Two. We still don’t know which version of the character we’ll see first in the DC Cinematic Universe, but producer Charles Roven has said the character’s (or characters’) role in part two is tentative. We may not even see Hal Jordan or Jon Stewart until Green Lantern Corps […]

For now, we’ve heard nothing about who might play John Stewart, but the names being considered for Hal Jordan makes for interesting reading. For starters, Ryan Reynolds (who starred in the 2011 Green Lantern movie) is among them, a surprise considering the fact that he clearly didn’t enjoy his time working on that and has since moved on to Deadpool.

Earlier this week we brought you some comments from Karen Gillan, who revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will delve into the past of Nebula, and her complicated relationships with her father Thanos and sister Gamora. Now the actress has been chatting to THR about the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel, reiterating that the theme of family will be a major element of the film, and how this will help us to see a more human side of the character.
“I’m so excited for people to see it! I just feel like it’s all of the best elements of the first one, just amplified. It’s even better – it’s funnier, the music’s even better … the second album is a blinder. It’s great. And in the first one everyone was being established. Now that that’s out of the way, you really get to delve into »

Warner Bros. is continuing to be very bullish about their plans for the DC Extended Universe. Despite the very mixed response to both Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, the studio is continuing to press ahead with their slate and even expand it, in some regards. They are officially moving ahead with Green Lantern Corps. and it looks like the casting process is underway. Shockingly, it looks like Ryan Reynolds is in the mix.
The Wrap recently published a report that claims to show the actors Warner Bros. and DC are looking at for the role of Hal Jordan in Green Lantern Corps. The list is definitely interesting, as it includes Bradley Cooper, Armie Hammer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joel McHale, Tom Cruise and yes, Ryan Reynolds. Not only is Ryan Reynolds tied up with Deadpool right now, but he played Hal Jordan in the 2011 Green Lantern movie, which was a box office disaster, »
DC may be willing to forgive and forget when it comes to Ryan Reynolds and Green Lantern.The Wrap has a list of potential Hal Jordans that the studio is considering for Green Lantern Corps, and Reynolds is on it alongside the likes of Armie Hammer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joel McHale, and Bradley Cooper. Reynolds played the superhero in 2011’s Green Lantern, but made fun of that shitshow in the first installment of his new, far more successful superhero franchise, Deadpool. Perhaps Warner Bros. wants a wisecracker, though: the choice of McHale would imply that it might want to try the Guardians Of The Galaxy route of importing a television comedy star.
Still, the most curious name floated—aside from Reynolds—is Tom Cruise. In his 50s, Cruise is far older than any of the other men with strong jaw lines proposed. However, with The Mummy on the horizon, it ...

Earlier today, The Wrap reported on a shortlist for Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps. According to them, Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Armie Hammer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper were in contention for the role of Hal Jordan. The outlet cited an unnamed source as for how they received their information, and while digging for more, we uncovered an additional name that’s said to be up for the part.
Trying to confirm The Wrap’s report, we reached out to a source of our own who’s connected to the studio and asked them if there was any truth to the above shortlist. While they couldn’t provide firm confirmation on the entire thing, they did say that Armie Hammer and Ryan Reynolds were definitely being considered and have been brought up several times already. Then, they dropped this bombshell:
“I’ve heard one more name, too. Ever »

One of several surprises to come out of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista’s excellent turn as the vengeful and brutally honest Drax the Destroyer, who garnered the love of fans around the world. Drax will be back in this year’s highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with Bautista returning to fill his shoes, and if director James Gunn’s latest post on his Facebook page tells us anything, it’s that Drax will be a highlight once again.
To celebrate Bautista’s January 18th birthday, Gunn took to Facebook to share an image of him with a fully-costumed Bautista and a heartfelt message about his friend. Halfway through the post, however, Gunn begins teasing readers with audience reactions to Drax in test screenings and writes the following: “He’s been blowing people’s minds in our early screenings of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 »

It seems that the wheels are finally turning behind the scenes for Warner Brothers’ upcoming Green Lantern Corps. film. Just last week, news broke that David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel) and Justin Rhodes would pen the script, and now we have a potential actor shortlist for Hal Jordan courtesy of The Wrap.
That’s right, TheWrap’s sources claim that Warner Bros. is still considering bringing Reynolds back to the role he made infamous in 2011’s critically panned Green Lantern, thanks to how “his superhero stock soared last year” when he starred in Deadpool. Considering he’s confirmed to play the Merc with the Mouth for the foreseeable future, and his own, very public complaints about playing Hal Jordan in the past, »

The Wrap is reporting today that Warner Bros. is eyeing Ryan Reynolds, Tom Cruise, Bradley Cooper and more for the role of Hal Jordan in Green Lantern Corps. The full shortlist is said to consist of the aforementioned three actors along with Armie Hammer, Joel McHale and Jake Gyllenhaal. No word yet on who the frontrunners are, but this is definitely exciting news, especially as Reynolds may get another shot at playing the character after the doomed 2011 film.
Out of all the actors mentioned here, however, he’s also probably the least likely to be cast. With his commitments to Deadpool over at Fox, we can’t see him having the time to juggle another superhero franchise. The same goes for Bradley Cooper, too, what with his role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy films no doubt eating up a lot of his upcoming schedule – especially with word on »

With President Trump now in the White House and trying to figure out how to open the drawers of the desk in the Oval Office with his tiny hands, even he can’t stop Hollywood from making superhero movies. Nor can he stop Warner Bros. from dreaming big about their brewing “Green Lantern Corps” movie.

Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal are on the shortlist of actors DC Entertainment is considering pursuing for the role of Hal Jordan in “Green Lantern Corps,” multiple people with knowledge of the project exclusively tell TheWrap. The casting process is still in the very early stages, and there are no talks with any of the actors as of yet. DC is considering whether Reynolds, who played Jordan in the 2011 film “Green Lantern,” should return to the role, an insider told TheWrap. His superhero stock soared last year when he starred in “Deadpool. »

After returning to the A-List thanks to Deadpool, could Ryan Reynolds return to the role of Hal Jordan in 2020's Green Lantern Corps? According to The Wrap, he's one of six actors being considered and Warner Bros. is said to be considering bringing him back. However, the site points out that he's not in talks as of yet and neither are any of the other stars said to currently be on the studio's shortlist. Other names being considered include Tom Cruise (The Mummy), Joel McHale (Community), Bradley Cooper (Guardians of the Galaxy), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), and Jake Gyllenhaal (Southpaw). Casting is in the early stages, but with David Goyer and Justin Rhodes writing the screenplay, it makes sense that the studio is considering some actors for the role. Still, take this with a pinch of salt for now! This isn't the most reliable source, and this reads more »
Earlier this week, Guardians 2 director James Gunn unveiled the first look at Funko Pop and Dorbz' new Ego the Living Planet toys. With the May 5 release date getting closer by the day, we have even more merchandise photos, this time featuring upcoming Lego with characters such as Baby Groot and Ayesha, along with a few of the Ravagers. There are three Lego sets in total here, although it hasn't been confirmed when these sets will go on sale, or how much they will cost, but those details may be coming soon.
Bleeding Cool offers our first look at these sets, the first of which is called "Ayesha's Revenge," referring to Elizabeth Debicki's character Ayesha. Naturally, we can't tell from the Lego set why Ayesha is seeking revenge, but the set also includes Star-Lord, Yondu and Baby Groot mini-figures. Regardless of this "revenge" aspect of the Lego set, it doesn't »
Over the years, stars such as Tom Cruise, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams have appeared on talk shows and impersonated some favorite fellow celebs and character—as well as some not-so-favorites. The BBC's Graham Norton Show is a well-known source for such impressions, as its format, in which all guests chat together with the host, allows for a more candid and even more relaxed talk show atmosphere. A supercut of stars impersonating other celebs on the program was recently posted on the series' YouTube page. The video shows: Benedict Cumberbatch's impression of Star Wars' Jar Jar Binks Tom »
We'll probably get a new look at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at some point in the next couple of months, but for the time being, some new toys have surfaced which may very well show off some key scenes from the highly anticipated sequel. As you can see below, these Lego sets show the Guardians battling Ayesha, a character we now know will have gold hair and skin just like in the comic books. They also show Rocket and Mantis taking on the Ravagers, while the Milano battling The Abilisk is probably the one action scene we know will most definitely be in the movie. No doubt the biggest draw, however, is the fact that two out of three of these come bundled with a tiny Baby Groot, a Lego minifigure which you're going to have to be very careful not to lose while you're building these. Starring Chris Pratt, »
