For years, fans have been urging the DC studios for a proper representation of the Lanterns on the big screen, after their last attempt with Ryan Reynolds as the character was a colossal failure. And following the confirmation of a Lantern show in the first chapter of DCU and Gunn confirming that the upcoming months will witness major DC castings, fans are now urging for the casting of  Aiden Ehrenreich as Hal Jordan in the DCU.

After witnessing a recent fan art of Alden Ehrenreich as Hal Jordan, who is known for starring as Han Solo in the billion-dollar Star Wars franchise, fans are convinced that he is the perfect choice for the iconic DC character. And fans haven’t shied away from voicing their opinions through Twitter and are assured that Ehrenreich should be the successor to Ryan Reynold’s substandard take on the character.


And apart from urging the studios for casting Alden Ehrenreich as Hal Jordan in James Gunn’s DCU, fans are engrossed in the upcoming HBO Max show, which is being regarded as one of the most important projects in DCU’s first chapter.
