Bradley Cooper rumored to power up as Green Lantern

Bradley Cooper, best known for backing up Sydney Bristow as Will Tippin on Alias, is the top candidate to portray Green Lantern on the big screen, and has "either been in front of the camera already or will be this week," according to Drew McWeeny of HitFix.

McWeeny is careful to point out that Cooper has not yet been hired and that Green Lantern director Martin Campbell likes to see many people when he's casting, and even when he's screen-testing, so until there's further verification, this information is best treated as rumor.

But with preproduction on Green Lantern set to begin in July, and filming scheduled to start in November, McWeeny states that "the process is far enough along that this is more than just a meeting or some spot on a wish list."
