Look out Common! Angel the Slayer Layer is after ya’ ring! (God, that just came out three ways wrong didn’t it!?)

David Boreanaz (“Angel”, “Bones”) is possibly – and I say possibly because the movie is still in the very, very, very early stages of development, and, well, read on.. – up for the role of ‘The Green Lantern’.

Seems Boreanaz and “Sin City” star Carla Gugino were the basis of storyboard artist and illustrator Brian Murray’s concept work for the “Green Lantern” movie -Boreanaz as the emerald-coloured lead, Gugino as romantic interest Carol Ferris -  drawings he was commissioned by “Green Lantern” co-writer (and potential director) Greg Berlanti to do. You can view the drawings here.

The drawings were presented to Warner Bros as part of Berlanti’s pitch – a pitch that resulted in him getting the gig.

Boreanaz, who tested for both Superman (in “Superman Returns”) and ‘The Thing’ in “Fantastic Four”, actually voiced the role of The Green Lantern in the animated DVD movie ”Justice League: The New Frontier”, in 2006.

I think Boreanaz has a great look for a superhero – but is he the name the superhero flick requires? We’ve all seen this year that it really does help to have an A-lister under the mask… and Boreanaz, though well-known for his television work, isn’t exactly a major film star; in fact, most of his movies (Bar Jamie Blanks’ “Valentine”) have gone straight to DVD. Still, it’s possible that he may get a look-in – – and again, it’s possible his Green Lantern may forever stay in paper-form.

Common was most recently asked to play ‘The Green Lantern’ – in the recently shelved “Justice League” movie.

Speaking of one-time Superhero contenders, Brendan Fraser tells VoicesOfKrypton.com that he was offered the role of Superman when J.J Abrams was onboard “Superman Returns”. Though he was excited at the prospect, Fraser says his “offer” suddenly turned to “er, we like you, but we have to ask the other guys at Warner” so the decision was basically made for him.

The “Mummy” actor says the film would’ve been a far superior one than the Bryan Singer version. “In my view, and I say this with respect, it’s far superior than Bryan Singers. J.J. had a vision that was larger. It spanned galaxies. It was Lord of the Rings.I mean, it was that huge. It was like a 3rd World War on Earth involving different planets and universes, and brotherhoods–sibling rivalry and the collision of enormous powers. I mean, come on, it wasn’t smacking you over the head with a symbolic hammer till you weren’t paying attention. That’s how good J.J. is.”

Thanks to ComicBookMovie.com for the heads up
