Rumors are abound! With many different superhero movies gearing up for filming, everyone wants to know who is playing who. The latest news is that Ryan Gosling might be gearing up to play Hal Jordan, also known as, The Green Latern.
Alright, before you get to excited hold up for a minute there. There has been no confirmation about this, only a rumor from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe who apparently has “trusted sources” inside the WB and broke the news about Heath Ledger as the Joker. Originally Seth Green, Justin Long, and David Boreanaz were up for the role of the Green Latern, but it could be that they are looking for someone with a bit more of a dramatic background.
Hell, in a world where Christian Bale, Robert Downey Jr., Gary Oldman, Tobey Maguire and Heath Ledger have the leading roles super hero flicks, they’re asking a lot more from their superheros these days. The WB has recently seen a lot of success with the Dark Knight series and wants to continue in that vain for The Green Latern.
If that’s the case, than Ryan Gosling might just be the perfect candidate. In the past few years Ryan has proved that he has plenty ability, his age fits perfectly with the characters (Hal Jordan and Ryan are both 27-years old) and with a bit of green splashed on he definitely could look the part.
What do you think? Should Ryan Gosling be the next Green Latern?
