There's a rumor now roaming the web about Jamie Dornan being in talks with Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder for the role of Hal Jordan, or as many know him, #GreenLantern. The casting alert sprung from Bravo! Film News, which they later posted on Twitter. Check it out below:
This is the second casting #rumor that came up within a couple of days. The first was an Instagram post from André Gordon, expressed in glee about the possible role of #JohnStewart. Now, that hasn't been confirmed either, but the question still remains if Warner Bros. and #ZackSnyder are actually searching possible candidates for the two ring wielders. Two of #DC's most known comic book characters, right before the release of #JusticLeague next year? Well, let's hope so.

Jamie Dornan is well known, in part, for his recent success in Fifty Shades of Grey, but the actor has plenty of roles under his belt even before the romantic drama. He starred in a horror serial film titled, Beyond the Rave and has done nine episodes on ABC's, Once Upon a Time as The Huntsman (Sheriff Graham Humbert). So, the actor surely has some form of action experience from the latter project. If this pans out, we just hope to see the wit and humor Jordan is known for.
What Could This Mean?
If Dornan obtains the role of Hal Jordan, then things are setting up for the characters to be at least shown sometime before their team-up film, #GreenLanternCorps in 2020. So, could the two characters make their way into The Batman solo film, that arrives in 2018? Would they even be shown in #WonderWoman next year? We know that Diana and Bruce are forming the group in her solo appearance, so is there a possible cameo of them right before Justice League? There are obviously so many questions, so the best thing for us to do is either find a stronger source or reach out to Snyder (if we're lucky).
Good luck and let's take this as the rumor it is. Make sure to keep watch for more news, casting and rumors that may arrive in the days ahead. We got these two, so there could be more. Wonder Woman arrives on June 2, 2017 with Justice League following on November 17, 2017.
