Green Lantern may have been Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice's worst kept secret. It had been speculated on for months that we would be seeing the Green Lantern in either BvS or Justice League until it was confirmed during the Justice League CW special a while back. The person who was instantly thought to be playing our favorite cosmic hero was Dan Amboyer. As of right now, we have no idea who he will be portraying, but due to the high level of secrecy surrounding him, I think it is fair to say he is Green Lantern.

Speaking with PopSugar, Amboyer was still being pretty secretive about his role, and hints that our speculation may be correct!

On working with Zack Snyder:

"It was interesting. He was a cool guy. I don't know if people know this, but he's really big about fitness on set, even as far as catering. So, he's always encouraging healthy food, which is great. He even makes you do push-ups in between takes."

On what scenes he filmed:

"Um, I don't know what I can say that's not spoilery. So, let's just say, I filmed good ones."

Reveals he auditioned to play the lead superheroes in 'Man of Steel' and 'The Flash':

"That was more my brother's thing [reading comics as a kid]. I had an appreciation from the outside, but I never got deep into it. But I've become more interested in it and it's strange because I have started to audition for more of that stuff. I auditioned to play Superman in Man of Steel originally and I auditioned for The Flash. I've constantly been coming back to these characters."

Talks about his character in 'Batman v Superman.' Says the currently released character names for his role, 'Lieutenant Christie' and 'Drone Pilot' are not the actual identity of his role in the film:

"I can't [say anything about my character]. They told me I couldn't say anything. Oh, yes. [My character's name] does appear, but it's kind of an undercover thing. The name appears on me at one point."

Dan Amboyer Has To Be Hal Jordan, Right?

He confirms that Lieutenant Christie is not his character's true name and the fact that he is in the military only adds more fuel to the speculative fire. I don't see why DC would be so secretive with his identity unless he is playing an absolutely huge character. We all know that Green Lantern will appear in BvS — whether it will be Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, or John Stewart is unknown as of now — but it definitely seems like we will see Amboyer wear the ring soon!


Do you think Dan Ambroyer is playing Green Lantern in 'BvS'?
