You can understand though why they are going or hope Chris E. will take the role. He has been in two action/superhero movies as well as Push. He is or is considered a good looking leading actor. He will draw middle/late teen girls. Plus he doesnt have to have the pull of others because it will should be a movie that draws fans. 2 issues though.
Does this movie turn into Push/Jumper. I apologize in advance to Hayden because i do think he is a mediocre to good actor, yet the storyline and writing were atrocious in jumper, i am sure the same prob can be said about Push, i have not seen it and dont plan on it.
Or does it take the Batman/Star Trek/ Iron Man direction. I doubt it will.
I am not saying this is going to be a bad movie, but my expectations are failure. Pg-13, huge budget, better supporting cast then lead actor, terrible direction etc.
I would also say that Green Latern has the possibilty of being a great movie. The supporting cast is not lacking and Reynolds is a good actor. Plus Campbell has directed some decent flicks.
