Rumor was flying around in brightest day, in blackest night that the talented Anton Yelchin would be Green Lantern. No evil rumour shall escape my sight. And while I Let those who worship evil’s might spread this around, I had to hope it was just talk. Well Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light! Anton Yelchin himself denies he was even approached!
ScreenRant quotes Yelchin:
“I had no idea about that…I have no clue.” He continued, “I have no idea. I think I’m probably too young. I mean, no one has approached me. No one has said anything to me. I imagine I’m just too young. I mean, it’s a great character but i don’t know anything about it…I haven’t heard anything about it.”
I had nothing against the actor, and I am sure he would do fine in any role suitable for him, but I just didn’t see Green Lantern being that character.
And just like Yelchin offers, he is just too young for the iconic Air Force Test Pilot.
