The Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer transforms into the Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern in a new concept design for the DC Extended Universe.
Although fans are hoping to see a version of Green Lantern make an appearance in the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League when it arrives on HBO Max in 2021, this fan edit shows Armie Hammer in the role as the next Hal Jordan for the DC Extended Universe. Most recently, The Dark Knight helmer Christopher Nolan endorsed John David Washington as the John Stewart Green Lantern in an interview ahead of Tenet‘s theatrical release.
However, this concept design from digital artist ‘saarukan.psd’ shows Armie Hammer as Green Lantern, picturing a slick, modern outfit for the hero, which still honors Hal Jordan’s classic look. It gives Hammer the white gloves as well as green boots, while the iconic symbol on his chest glows brightly. It’s a slick look for Hammer, who was once set to play Batman in the infamous Justice League Mortal from director George Miller. Until we learn more about the future of Hal Jordan, take a look at Armie Hammer as Green Lantern below.
Do you think Armie Hammer should get a shot at playing the hero in live-action? Do you think he’d make a good Hal Jordan? Or do you think the next film or series should focus on John Stewart, Guy Gardner or even Kyle Rayner? Comment below and let us know!
A Green Lantern Corps movie is also currently in development with Geoff Johns on board as a writer and producer. Full details on Green Lantern Corps are being kept under lock and key, though the project will draw inspiration from Johns’ work on the New 52 Green Lantern comics with both Hal Jordan and John Stewart set to appear in the film.
In addition to the Green Lantern and Justice League Dark projects, HBO Max is developing a Strange Adventures DC anthology series and a DC Super Hero High show from Elizabeth Banks. News of the Lantern series arrived shortly after reports of HBO Max planning to produce DC projects with budgets on par with those of feature films.
