6 Actors Who Should Play The Next 'Green Lantern'

Michael Rosenbaum Green Lantern Guy Gardner

If the studio is unable to decide the future of Reynolds' hero by the time Justice League actually gets moving, a ringbearer other than Hal could be seen in his stead. Not to launch a sequel, but provide support.

And that, comic fans, is a role clearly made for Guy Gardner: the embodiment of a confident, steak-eating, beer-drinking American male. A stereotype to be sure, but actor Michael Rosenbaum has several roles under his belt - not just Smallville's Lex Luthor - that called for being obnoxious, smart-ass, and yet likable; all qualities needed to make Gardner work.

DC's New 52 version has Gardner as a washed-out cop from a police family, so besides providing some expertise for the League, that backstory would anchor Rosenbaum to an actual character, keeping the wise-cracking (which the Flash voice actor has experience with) from falling into shallow development. That's if Marvel doesn't snag Rosenbaum first.
