“Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” features an already star-studded cast to begin with, but it looks like someone “big” will also make an appearance in the heavily anticipated comic book film this year. Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern himself, is rumoured to make an appearance in Zack Snyder’s latest movie.
Dan Amboyer, who has been widely known for playing Prince William and stars in “Younger” as well as a random non-player character in “Grand Theft Auto V” is set to appear in “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.” IMDB currently credits him as simply “Drone Pilot” in the movie though a recent interview may indicate that he is indeed Hal Jordan (a character that was played before by Ryan Reynolds).
Speaking to Pop Sugar, talked about the filming set Amboyer. “ It was awesome. I got there right at the beginning of shooting and it was crazy because my first day people were showing me around and all of a sudden the Superman suit comes by — and it’s giant. It’s not something you can hang up. So that was insane.”
With regards to the specific scenes he shot as his character named “Lieutenant Christie,” he says that he doesn’t know what to say that won’t mark as a huge spoiler for a the film, but he notes that he filmed good ones. As for his character, the name “Lieutenant Christie” is “kind of an undercover thing,” and the name appears on him at one point.
Asked if there will be other superheroes set to make an appearance in the film, Amboyer said that “it’s hard for me to keep up with what’s officially been announced, but yes, there are some other possibilities.” When asked to reveal more about the character he’s playing however, he kept mum on the topic. “I can’t. They told me I couldn’t say anything.”
However, for those hopeful to see more iconic characters in the film alongside Wonder Woman and Doomsday, “blue” is his favourite colour, but he also “appreciates nature as well and everything green.” While that may sound cryptic, that may at least give even any hint or indication that he’s going to play as the Green Lantern.
Amboyer has auditioned for several Justice League characters before. He originally intended to play as Superman in “Man of Steel,” as well as The Flash. He notes that he has been coming back for those characters, and it looks like he’s going to have his big break if it does turn out that he’ll be the Green Lantern in “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
