Armie Hammer becomes Green Lantern Hal Jordan in this awesome new image that imagines the future of the DCEU.
A Green Lantern Corps film is currently in development at Warner Brothers. Geoff Johns is attached to the project as both a writer and producer. Although details on Green Lantern Corps are under wraps, we know that the film will feature the long-awaited team-up between Hal Jordan and John Stewart. The film is said to be a buddy-cop movie and has been described as “Lethal Weapon in space” with an older, more experienced Hal Jordan training John Stewart as a new recruit in the ways of the Green Lantern Corps.
DC Comics fans see none other than Armie Hammer in the role of Hal Jordan as they have a very specific vision when casting these legendary characters and for the silver screen. In 2017, Armie Hammer emerged as a contender for the role on a wishlist of talent that included actors such as Tom Cruise and Bradley Cooper for the role of Hal Jordan, While nothing ever came of that, fans who want to see how Armie Hammer could look as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in the DCEU are in luck as digital artist Jakub Maslowski created an awesome image that shows the actor in the role.
You can check out what Armie Hammer would look like as the DCEU’s version of Hal Jordan for Green Lantern Corps below.
Earlier this year, Armie Hammer was rumored to succeed Ben Affleck as the DCEU’s next Batman. But it seems like Armie Hammer won’t get his shot as the next Dark Knight after being in contention for the role multiple times. Armie Hammer was cast as Batman in Justice League: Mortal, but Warner Bros. ultimately scrapped the George Miller project. But Armie Hammer was never really one of the true frontrunners for The Batman as it ultimately boiled down to Robert Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult before the former got the job.
