Rumor: Green Lantern Film Will Focus on the Green Lantern Corps

Shares

According to Collider the Green Lantern reboot that’s slated to release on June 19th, 2020 will not focus on only one Green Lantern, but more than one human from the Green Lantern Corps.

For those who are familiar with the Green Lantern comics know that there’s been many human Green Lanterns over the years, starting with Alan Scott, onwards to Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and Simon Baz to name a few. There’s more once you go more deep into the Multiverse and other stories.

Though according to Collider they speculate Warner Bros. will go for the more popular ones like Jordan, Stewart and Gardner.

The most popular Green Lantern is Hal Jordan, who was the main character in the 2011 movie. However, Guy Gardner and John Stewart later followed Jordan, and they weren’t the last in the comics. But we’re hearing  possibly two or all three—Jordan, Stewart, and Gardner—could be the leads of Warner Bros’ Green Lantern reboot.

Furthermore, the franchise will continue to focus on different Green Lanterns and never on just one, so really the Green Lantern movies look like they’ll be more about the Green Lantern Corps, which is an interesting approach.

But before we get there, the plan is just to focus on these two or three human Green Lanterns, and there’s a real possibility that Warner Bros. will introduce the Green Lanterns at Comic-Con this year at their panel in Hall H on Saturday.  And if WB does bring on multiple Green Lanterns, then presumably one or more of them will pop up in Justice League.

Remember this is a rumor, so it should be taken with a grain of salt, but we would be lying if we didn’t say this would be an awesome way to reintroduce Green Lantern to the general audience.

  • I like the idea of approaching the film with a focus on the team. The comics have laid that format down already, successfully. We know of multiple characters and arcs. It works. The Corp is a team, if you will, and I think viewing it as such in the movies will appeal to comic fans as well as average movie-goers. The politics and camaraderie should be displayed with intent to truly exhibit the strength of the Green Lanterns. Powerful they are in their own right, unstoppable as a unit they have shown time and time again.

    • This. In addition to what Xyenz said, this format is the perfect way to introduce a massive, sprawling GL saga, the likes of Blackest Night.
