Cool. Hal Jordan is just about my favorite superhero right now, so this is awesome to see. The trailer gets a little cheesy (a little too literally translated from the comics; every superhero comic needs to be changed a bit to be made effectively in live-action, and those Guardians and other lanterns look ridiculous :lol: ), but it's incredibly well-made for something fan-made.
I would like Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan too, but it's ultimately a bad choice since he's, what... like 40 now? Maybe ten years ago.
Topic title's a little misleading, though. Almost thought this was official news...

If they can have 30 year olds playing high-schoolers, they can have 40 yr olds playing 30 yr olds.

Anyway I read somewhere that the rapper Common is being lined up as Green Lantern.

Nope, not anymore. That was for the Justice League movie, in which he would have played the John Stewart version of GL. But the project fell apart, and any progress made in casting and whatnot has been nixed. Which is a fucking GREAT thing, because all the casting news I'd heard was awful. They had Adrian Brody playing the Flash, and some fucking 21-year-old no name was going to be Batman.
Ick.
Luckily, it looks like a solo GL movie is much more likely at this point, featuring Hal Jordan wearing the ring. And they've already got a direct-to-DVD animated movie coming next month:

With any luck in sales, I'd imagine this should get a live-action version up and running in a reasonable amount of time.
