Who will be the “Green Lantern”?

**UPDATE**
Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the Green Lantern. Read the full post here.

The latest comic book to movie adaptation looks to be the “Green Lantern”. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. have three front-runners in mind. They are Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover”), Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), and Justin Timberlake. Other candidates mentioned include Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) and Jared Leto.

Interesting choices for the Green Lantern. Upon first glance, I would say Ryan Reynolds would look the part but considering he will be starring in the X-Men Origins spin off Deadpool – there could be some filming conflicts. In my opinion, Bradley Cooper has really emerged as a rising star in Hollywood within the past few years. His latest movie, “The Hangover”, has already grossed $210 million domestically and a sequel is already in the works according to this Variety article. I believe Cooper’s breakout role was on the ABC show “Alias” starring Jennifer Garner. “Alias” is one of my all-time favorite shows and I’m glad that the show’s alumni have really done well after the show ended in 2006. As far as Justin Timberlake, I don’t know if I see him as a super hero. I can understand the commercial appeal of choosing him, Timberlake has starred in some dramas (i.e. “Alpha Dog”) and comedies (i.e. “The Love Guru”), but I don’t know if he’s a fit for the role. On the other hand, I can totally picture Henry Cavill as the Green Lantern. Cavill has been linked to many super hero roles including Superman before Brandon Routh was ultimately chosen for “Superman Returns”. Stephenie Meyer, author of the “Twilight” book series, mentioned on her official website that Cavill was part of her dream cast before Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward Cullen for the movie. Cavill is currently starring as Charles Brandon, on the TV series “The Tudors”.

As with all the other super hero franchises, you need someone that can carry a franchise (i.e. sequels, merchandising, etc.) so my vote goes toward Henry Cavill! What do you think?
