Jupiter Legacy‘s Matt Lanter is open to portraying Hal Jordan.
During an exclusive CBR Q&A on Twitter, Lanter humorously answered a fan that wanted to know if he’d consider portraying Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern, in the DC Extended Universe. Lanter replied, “Well to that I would say, Green Lantern, my name is Matt Lanter. I mean is that coincidental? I think not. Could anyone do it better than Lanter? Maybe not.”
He continued, “No shame, Ryan Reynolds. I’m just kidding. I love Ryan Reynolds, he’s fantastic. Would I be open to it? Yeah, sure, why not!”
Currently, HBO Max is developing a Green Lantern live-action series. On April 30, it was announced that Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story) has been cast in the role of Guy Gardner in the upcoming HBO Max series focused on the galaxy defenders. A casting search is still underway for Green Lantern Alan Scott. Past reports have revealed that Green Lantern will feature a slew of Green Lanter Corps members in lead roles, including Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, as well as a newly-created character named Bree Jarta.
In the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Jupiter’s Legacy, Lanter stars as Skyfox, one of the six founding members of the Union. He’s a playboy-like character who revels in his playful misdeeds.
