DC might see a new actor take on the suit of Green Lantern. Rumors have been heating up that Fifty Shades Darker movie star Jamie Dornan might be the next superhero.
The DC superhero has tried breaking into the box office pedestal in 2011. Unfortunately, it did not succeed in doing that as it only reached $219.9 million with a budget of $200 million. Even the critical reviews of the film did not favor it. Although there is nothing wrong with Ryan Reynolds portraying the iconic superhero, maybe Fifty Shades Darker actor Jamie Dornan can help sell the movie more.
Jamie Dornan as the new Green Lantern?
Jamie Dornan has been in different kinds of headlines this year. He was reportedly leaving the Fifty Shades movie series to focus on his family; he was allegedly having an affair with co-star Dakota Johnson; and most recently, he is rumored to be very persistent to get the Green Latern role to move away from anything Christian Grey and Fifty Shade, according to a report by HNGN.
Dornan is rumored to be currently in talks with DC Films after being given the role. However, according to a report by iTech Post, the casting rumor is false. In fact, the role has not been given to anyone yet. So far, it is Dornan, Zach Snyder and Armie Hammer who are in the running.
As to whether Dornan will be leaving the steamy movie series, the answer is a clear No. He could not possibly do that as filming is already done for the film trilogy — up until Fifty Shades Freed.
Fifty Shades Darker new trailer
The second installment of the Fifty Shades movie series just dropped a new trailer. Looking at it, the upcoming film seems to be have a different tone than the first one. The trailer has a lot more stripping down and Dakota Johnson’s character Anastasia Steele seems to be a lot more comfortable with their passionate romance.
Fifty Shades Darker looks like it will satisfy more moviegoers when it hits the theaters.
