So yeah, that was probably the lamest headline I’ve ever written. Anyway, the news is that one of LatinoReview’s infamous “anonymous sources” says WB is looking at none other than Ryan “Baby Goose” Gosling for the lead role in the Green Lantern movie. Yep, they’re actually making that. Says FirstShowing:
I hope no one needs a reminder in regards to who the character of Hal Jordan is [God forbid], but let’s go over some basic details. In the script, he is a 27 year old test pilot who is chosen to wear a power ring [FYI: FirstShowing lists “Power Rings” as number 3 on its list of “5 Reasons why fans will love Green Lantern”] and become a Green Lantern in order to defend our universe from bad guys like Legion and Sinestro. He was given the ring when Abin-Sur crashes on Earth and finds someone who is “utterly honest and born without fear” to take his place.
It’s a lesser known fact that after Abin-Sur gave Hal Jordan the power ring, he bought him a Tiffany’s necklace with a silver heart, and Jordan still wouldn’t put out until one night after he got hammered off jungle juice at the sigma chi formal. But shh, don’t tell anyone, who knows what would happen if the standards board found out!
