Pull up another chair to the Justice League table Batman because Zac Efron is coming in hot as Kyle Rayner in this sweet image that imagines the actor in the DCEU’s Green Lantern Corps movie.
The Green Lantern Corps lands a huge fish in Zac Efron in this really cool art showcasing the Baywatch star as Kyle Rayner. Zac Efron has built quite a large fanbase thanks after becoming a household name starring in the Disney Channel’s High School Musical movie and has since moved on to much more dramatic roles.

The Green Lantern Corps movie is currently in development at Warner Bros. but has not cast any actors, including Zac Efron, as members of the interstellar police force to suit up and protect the universe from great threats just yet.
We did see a brief cameo of a member of the Green Lantern Corps. in 2017’s Justice League during a battle of the Earth’s alliance of heroes against the evil Steppenwolf. Although the lone soldier did fall to one of Steppenwolf’s Parademons, the source of the Green Lantern‘s power was sent away seeking a replacement worthy enough to carry the mantle.
Perhaps if Zac Efron is chosen to play Kyle Rayner then this ring could have found him decades later. This would be a great move for DC because they’d be adding youth and star power to their ever-expanding extended universe.

Green Lantern Corps. is just one of many exciting DC Extended Universe films in the works. Before that film hits the big screen, fans still have highly-anticipated DCEU films like Shazam!, Joker, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), Wonder Woman 1984, and The Batman to look forward to.
The latest film from the DCEU is Aquaman which is now playing. Here’s a brief synopsis:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
