Ever since it was announced that a Justice League movie will be made, there has been debate on who should play Green Lantern. Depending on which Green Lantern appears, weather it be Hal Jordan or John Stewart, I think there are a few people who I think can be the Green Lantern.

I'll start with John Stewart

1. Idris Elba

This is one of two fan favorites to play John Stewart, and for obvious reasons. He looks the part and has the acting chops to pull it off.

2. Tyrese Gibson

Tyrese Gibson is the other fan favorite to play him. He has been actively campaigning to get the role and I believe he can a comedic tone to Stewart that we haven't really seen before.

3. Michael Jai White

Michael Jai White is no stranger to comic book shows or movies, portraying the titular character in Spawn, as Bronze Tiger in Arrow, and appearing in The Dark Knight. He can be very intimidating in any movie he is in, I believe he is an excellent candidate to play the part.

4. Dwayne Johnson

People have also expressed interest in seeing Johnson in the role and I would like to see it too but unfortunately he has already stated that he will be playing Black Adam in the Shazam movie.

5. Michael Ealy

Over the past few years, Ealy has built a pretty solid resumè of films and shows that include The Following, Takers, Think Like a Man, and Miracle at St. Anna. I believe he would be an excellent choice for John Stewart.

Now on to Hal Jordan. With Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern still pretty fresh in our minds, if they do include Hal Jordan in the JL movie, the actor they get to portray him will be heavily criticized until the film is released.

1. Chris Pine

Just as John Stewart, Hal Jordan has 2 fan favorites to play him, Pine being one of them. Pine has definitely proven he can a leading man or a supporting actor as he has been in the Star Trek films and in Horrible Bosses 2. He has the comedic skills to play Hal Jordan and the looks as well. He has also been rumored to be in the running to play Wonder Woman's love interest, Steve Trevor.

2. Bradley Cooper

Cooper is the other favorite to play Jordan, and just like he has the looks and comedic and acting chops to pull it off.

3. James Marsden

Marsden would be a solid choice to play Jordan and with him no longer playing Cyclops, there would be no reason he couldn't play him

4. Dave Franco

Everything Franco appears in, in my opinion, he is the funniest part in it. He could definitely be a good Hal Jordan.

5. John Krasinski

I don't know what it is but something tells me he would be a good Hal Jordan.
