Slowly but surely Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has become less about the imminent smack down between Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, and more about the early formation of DC’s Justice League. We know that Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg will appear in the film in some form or another. However, what about the final piece of the puzzle: Green Lantern? The green clad space cop has remained noticeably absent from the spotlight as the film gets closer and closer to its slated release date, but new reports indicate that actor Dan Amboyer may in fact harness the power of will during the events of Zack Snyder’s upcoming film.
Speaking with POPSUGAR about his involvement in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Dan Amboyer provided numerous – albeit minor – hints about the nature of his character. While no one statement wholly points to him donning a will-powered ring, many of his quotes add up to give us a pretty good idea that he may very well be a Green Lantern. During the interview, he explained not only does he have some great scenes alongside the major DC heroes, but also that there are DC characters waiting in the wings that have not yet been officially confirmed for the film. While that could indicate a potential villain role, we feel more confident in assuming that this might be a member of the Green Lantern Corps.
At this stage, we know that Dan Amboyer is portraying a character creited only as "drone pilot," and that his potential listed name is "Lt. Christie." However, he also admitted that his role has an "undercover" aspect to it, so there’s a distinct possibility that Amboyer's Mr. Christie isn’t everything he seems to be; given his passion for flight Hal Jordan seems to be a likely reality for his character.
Dan Amboyer just seems to really want to play a superhero at the end of the day. He originally auditioned to portray Kal-El in Man of Steel, and then returned to audition for The Flash in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. We have to believe that such tenacity must have resonated with Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. because all evidence points to him finally getting a superhero on the silver screen.
As if all of these clues weren’t tantalizing enough, the final piece of the puzzle came when POPSUGAR innocently asked Dan Amboyer about his favorite color:
No? Blue. Definitely blue, but I appreciate nature as well and everything green.
Oh come on, Mr. Ambroyer. Don’t jerk us around like that.
We will just have to wait and see if Dan Amboyer joins Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman among the ranks of the Justice League. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theaters on March 25.
