My point was that it likely would've been a smarter move to use John (as the planned Justice League: Mortal film would've) but the current DC head honchos said "NAW LET'S GIVE EM HAL INSTEAD" because of their own fanboyism.

    It's lunatics running the asylum.
    I don't doubt the head honchos had their own biases, but Johns did give the GL monthly a huge shot in the arm during his 9-year run. Running with that character isn't entirely unjustifiable, either.

    I think the TV show (assuming you mean GL:TAS) was pretty good, but it got canned more for toy reasons than anything the show did badly.

    I have some other theories here and there, but it's probably just going to open a can that nobody wants opened.

    Johns could probably do the same as Feige does, WB are a major studio and won't let him. If Feige hadn't been around before Disney bought Marvel, they might be in a similar fix.
    Not it will most likely do any good, but I encourage any interested parties to sign this petition.
