    I'd consider it dirty blonde. Which is still blonde.

    I'm fairly confident he could play Jordan if he wanted to, and just doesn't want to. He's a fairly big name.

    Arnie Hammer for Jordan.

    Maybe because he finds him too similar to James Kirk and wants some variety? Steve Trevor has always been cooler than Hal Jordan though and it's great that the world now knows how awesome he is too.

    Trevor has the cocky pilot aspect too. But Pine has said in the past that he didn't really want to play a superhero, so it made sense that he was more willing to play a supporting character in a superhero movie instead.

    Doesn't make much of a difference to me who's "cooler", Jordan is a much more prominent character that needs a good actor and I thought someone like Pine would do him justice.

    Not at this point in pop-culture consciousness. And that doesn't seem to be changing in the immediate future with Steve's return to the big screen next year.

    Um, what? Green Lantern is one of DC's premiere brands and Hal is the most prominent character carrying that mantle, doesn't matter that there was a bad movie from almost a decade ago that keeps getting mocked to this day. It would've been a much bigger deal if Pine was cast as Jordan instead.

    Always? I like Steve a lot and recognize his importance in WW lore and want him to keep getting a push, but Steve has also been pretty lame for long stretches. Throughout the Silver and Bronze Ages, and then Perez aged him up and made him useless for the entire duration of the Post-Crisis canon. Hell, the movie is the first near-unanimously beloved take on the character EVER, and he's been around since 1941.

    It's ultimately comparing apples and oranges, as Steve is the love interest for the headlining hero, and not a headlining hero himself. So he's only really popular in that capacity. People are excited for Steve's return to the big screen, but he's an accessory to the larger Wonder Woman story, not the main act.

    A race change brings a completely different world experience and social issues along with that.

    None of which will be of any importance to the plot of the film as far as I'm aware. Not every story about people of color has to be about the prejudices they face as people of color.

    And if Dinah Lance being black means her life experiences will be different, that wouldn't be the first time a character was changed for an adaptation. Hell, the comics change a character's entire backstory within the space of six months or less.
