Who knew when I went to bed last night at 1:00 AM after wrapping up a round of Major Spoilers projects, that Harry Knowles and his Ain’t It Cool News, would set the Intardwebz aflame on Friday morning with possible news about Green Lantern casting.
AICN posted the rumor that Justin Timberlake has been suiting up in the green and black suit for some screen tests, and may be the favorite by Warner Bros. to play the emerald knight.
Before you get all worked up in a tizzy, Empire Online counters with news that Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds are also vying for the role of the Green Lantern.
As much as I like Ryan Reynolds, we’ve already seen what happens when an actor jumps from one comic book property to another, so if he lands the role there will have to be a balancing act between Deadpool and Green Lantern.Â I also don’t have anything against Justin Timberlake, he’s a pretty good actor, especially as a deformed war vet in Southland Tales.
Instead of everyone getting all worked up over just one actor playing Green Lantern, let me throw this one into the blender – what if all three of them were being eyed for Green Lantern?Â How interesting would it be to see everyone who’s been rumored to be up for GL (including Nathan Fillion)Â appear here and there as part of the Green Lantern Corps as Warner Bros. moves ahead with two additional sequels?Â Remember, Warner Bros. and DC did hole up for several days last year to figure out what they could do with their properties as the movie studio and comic book company try to develop a cohesive movie universe.
I now turn it over to you, the Major Spoilerite Elite* to talk this rumor out.

Newsarama has broken the story that both Wizard World LA and Wizard World Texas have cancelled their upcoming shows.
WizardWorld LA was scheduled for March 13-15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center; and Dallas for November 6-8. Newsarama confirmed the information about the L.A. show early Friday afernoon when a spokesperson for the L.A. Convention Center said that they that had been notified via voicemail on Friday morning that Wizard was canceling its show. Other sources have confirmed for Newsarama that the Texas show has been cancelled as well.
This is both something expected and a bit of a shock.Â Wizard World LA is just a couple months away, and already had a line up of guests scheduled to appear.Â Both shows were already preselling tickets, and presumably vendors have already placed and paid for booth space.Â Considering the Wizard World shows haven’t had big showings outside of Chicago and possibly Philadelphia, and the recent “restructuring” the company has undergone in the last year, shutting down some its less attended shows in a time of economic crisis makes sense.
Some may remember the outcry that occured when Wizard World Atlanta tried to take over the weekend usually reserved for Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC.Â Wizard quickly resolved the issue after a massive write in campaign, but I have to wonder if that blunder wasn’t the beginning of the end for Wizard World.
The Wizard World website still has the shows listed on its site, and is still claiming Stan Lee is the guest of honor at the LA event, so let’s see how this story develops.
UPDATE:Â HERE’S THE OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM WIZARD ENTERTAINMENT
Congers, NY (January 9, 2009) â€“ Wizard Entertainment announced today that it has postponed its 2009 Wizard World Los Angeles show slated for March 13-15 and cancelled the Wizard World Texas show November 6-8 due to the current economic climate.
The successful Philadelphia and Chicago shows will go on as planned. Wizard World Philadelphia, featuring Guest of Honor Garth Ennis, is June 19-21 at the Philadelphia Convention Center and Wizard World Chicago, featuring comic legend George Perez, is August 6-9 at the Rosemont Convention Center.
