Before the rumor died, it was originally used to get under the skin of Kyle fans (as well as Kyle fanpeople) as the rumored movie was supposed to have Jack Black as Kyle, but when the same rumor was revived months ago after it was debunked for a long time, different stories started to spin as tensions between fans and fanpeople started to arise. Most of the mess was to spark another pathetic "Kyle vs. Hal" debate, but there were people that believed that Jack Black could play a Green Lantern as long as it was either Guy Gardner or G'Nort, having confidence that he would be perfect for either role. This thread alone proves the last statement. In any case, I'm just glad that the rumor is a done deal, and hopefully, everyone will let it die for good this time.

I can't see him as any sort GL. Maybe one who is comedic and doesn't need alot of screen time...do any GL's fit that bill??

As for Kyle/Hal - it's always going to be a one is better than the other debate. I don't mind if a film came out for either. I love Kyle but Hal is the one with the longer history.

As long as any film done is true to the character, I can't complain.

He would have made a cool Green Lantern in general (I'm thinking Guy if he slimmed down just a wee bit) but not Hal. Honestly, I see Geoff Johns playing Hal Jordan, haha.

how is that jack black couldn't play kyle? Hal comes off as a bit of a stiff sometimes and it would be waste of Jack talents to play him. Kyle has more a sense of humor and is more of an "everyman".
I mean besides the fact that jack black is kind of chubby why couldnt he play kyle??
Not that the actor that plays kyle has to look like him.

though jack black did play the dashing heroic type in HeatVision and Jack. So maybe he could play Hal.

Maybe it's just my prejudice then, but Kyle is young and good looking.

Jack Black is neither.

That wouldn't matter so much if the acting was good, but I don't rate Jack Black, especially not with one of the favourite Lanterns.

My opinion.

Now, that's a different story! For that, I apologize for my earlier comment. It is just that there were fanpeople that were using the debunked rumor as a joke and to get under other fanpeople's skin as nobody would take seriously the idea of Jack Black being a GL (either Kyle or Hal) due to his appearance as well as his reputation for doing comedy movies. In fact, the only serious movie that I recall Jack Black ever doing was the King Kong remake, which was actually a pretty good movie, IMO.

You would be surprised! I myself am still hoping for Corey Reynolds to succeed in convincing WB to accept his GL script idea. I know that not too many people have John Stewart as their first choice for a GL movie lead, but Corey really understands the character and the GL comics, and that's good news.

I think Cuba Gooding Jr. would make an AMAZING John Stewart.

I'm glad this idiotic idea isn't going ahead, but I'm not holding my breath for a Green Lantern movie anytime soon. I think superhero movie fatigue is about to set in. Audiences are ready to move onto the next shiny thing.

That said, a full-on Green Lantern movie would absolutely rock.
