After his legendary journey as Iron man in MCU, Robert Downey is all set to become Green Lantern in DCEU. RDJ is going to repeat the mistake that Ryan Reynolds did by playing Green Lantern in DCEU.
- Robert Downey Jr. approached to play Green Lantern in DCEU?
- Warner Bros. moving ahead with a Green Lantern Corps movie
- What if Robert Downey Jr. agrees to play Green Lantern in DCEU?
Seems like Robert Downey Jr. is going to go the same way as Ryan Reynolds, and do the same mistake as our Deadpool did by playing Green Lantern in DCEU. Yes, if rumours are to be believed, then believe that Warner Bros. has approached our forever Iron Man aka Robert Downey Jr. to be the emerging ring-powered superhero in DCEU.
Wonder what would happen if our Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark would become a green light-emitting superhero from DC comics? What if the news of Warner Bros. approaching Robert Downey Jr. to play Green Lantern in DCEU actually turns out to be something more than just rumours?
Robert Downey Jr. approached to play Green Lantern in DCEU?
The news is coming out from the same sources in Hollywood that told the world that Task Master will be the villain in MCU’s Black Widow and that Daniel Radcliffe might be the Moon Knight.
We know that all those rumours landed on the right spot, so we have to trust this one as well to an extent. The sources claim that RDJ has been approached by Warner Bros. to play the role of Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern in DCEU’s upcoming Green Lantern Corps.
It is reported that the actor has had some discussions with the studio regarding the role and the character. Though nothing has been officially confirmed yet. But the news seems credible enough. Warner Bros. is looking for an actor to perfect the role of Green Lantern from a long time now. And one of the actor top on their list is Tom Cruise. So, it would be interesting to see if RDJ will be roped in for Green Lantern or it will be Tom Cruise.
Warner Bros. moving ahead with a Green Lantern Corps movie
Yes, Warner Bros are going ahead with a Green Lantern Corps movie, it’s in their priority list for DCEU. Though not enough details about the plot of the movie have been revealed, it’s out there that it will be a buddy space cop movie. Since we know that Green Lantern is a character who travels in Space, that does make sense.
In the late winters of the last year, there were speculations that Geoff John, the writer of the movie, has approached the production house with the script to see if they are interested.
What if Robert Downey Jr. agrees to play Green Lantern in DCEU?
No second thought to it, if RDJ agrees to play Green Lantern in DCEU, then it will come as a massive blow for the fans of Iron Man in MCU. The rivalry or MCU and DCEU isn’t trivial and new, and thus fans of both the universes might take it negatively.
Robert Downey Jr. has been playing Iron Man in MCU since the beginning of the MCU. He has been Iron man in a dozen movies, and we all know that the character mirrored the real-life charisma of actor.
However, the journey of the actor as Iron Man supposedly ended after the death of the character in Endgame, but fans won’t be able to accept RDJ as Green Lantern in DCEU.
Though there are talks about RDJ coming back to MCU as well, things don’t look like working out. In any case, it would be interesting to see if RDJ will opt to play Green Lantern in DCEU, or will come back in MCU as Iron Man.
