A couple of weeks back a rumour hit that Chris Pine was up for the role of Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s squeeze, in the forthcoming solo “Wonder Woman” film. Seems that mightn’t be the case, and that the “Star Trek” actor might actually be up for a completely different DC superhero jaunt – “Green Lantern” (and no, it’s not the first time the actor has been linked to the role).

It was rumoured earlier this week that the new “Green Lantern” film -a complete redo that’ll share no ties with the ill-fated Ryan Reynolds starrer from a few years back – will actually feature a couple of Green Lanterns, namely Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart.

Pine, it seems, would be up the former.

Says Latino Review, “Stick with me here. It’s a rumor, though one I feel comfortable writing about, that there will be not one but two Green Lanterns when Warner Bros gets around to introducing him/them into the Justice League universe. One of them, the Green Lantern we’ve already seen onscreen is Hal Jordan. The other is the Green Lantern made popular by the animated JLA TV series, the black human Green Lantern John Stewart. Apparently, some story-world approved reason why they both exist will be explained, like having Stewart be the backup Lantern while Jordan’s on the JLA or having them be Lanterns from different sectors.

Now, you didn’t misread me earlier, and these rumors don’t conflict, WB wants to line up the Justice League on the Hall H stage. That would mean that these Green Lanterns have already been locked down.

The cool thing (in retrospect) is that it looks like WB was Khaning us JJ Abrams style with the rumor that Chris Pine was in negotiations to play Princess Diana’s love interest Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman. Pine was rumored to be a candidate for Hal Jordan way back when we realized Ryan Reynolds would never float in a green suit again, and the rumors of Pine circling Wonder Woman were actually Pine closing in on the role of Hal Jordan.

As for John Stewart, both Tyrese and Common have been the most rumored names to fill that role. Common scored himself a role in Suicide Squad and if DC and WB are playing by the Disney mega-franchising rules, you shouldn’t have the possibility that a hero version of your actor could conceivably meet the villain version of your actor. I’d count Common out while also noting that Tyrese is part of the Fast and Furious franchise cast, which gives him heat in the “look at our star studded Justice League” category.”

“Justice League : Part 1″ is due to hit in 2017.
