President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production at Warner Bros. Greg Silverman and DC Extended Universe producer Charles Roven both discuss the Green Lantern film and when the character might appear in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Silverman talks on treating the character the same way as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman when it comes to his film, while Roven states that fans might not see any of the Green Lanterns until Justice League Part 2.
Silverman on the Green Lantern with great reverence:
“[Green Lantern] is an incredible character. He’s actually multiple incredible characters,” Silverman says. “There’s real opportunity there. We didn’t do a great job on that first Green Lantern movie. This is a character who deserves to be treated in the same way that Batman and Superman and Wonder Woman are being treated now, which is with great reverence. I guess I can say to the Green Lantern fans: if they can be patient with us, I think they’ll be really happy.”
Roven on when fans will see Green Lanterns:
But how patient? Rovens says we may not see Hal Jordan, John Stewart, or any incarnation of Green Lantern until Justice League – Part Two. Maybe. “Every beat of the movie is not yet worked out. So there’s the possibility that he may or may not be in Justice League 2,” the producer says. “For now, we felt that we were introducing enough characters that the best possible place we could put Green Lantern is some introduction in Justice League 2, or barring that, a movie after.”
