A lot of people have given up on the D.C. Extended Universe, but there are still those hoping that the stories will slowly start to improve and begin to get better. While many see the underwhelming past releases such as Justice League or Suicide Squad, there
are still those who enjoyed movies such as Wonder Woman or Man of Steel. Regardless, the D.C.E.U. still plans on making more movies with Aquaman set for November of this year and Shazam & Wonder Woman 2 set for 2019. With those two movies set in stone, it looks like Green Lantern Corps. is set and on pace for a 2020 release.
The movie has been long rumored to be a sort of buddy cop comedy movie following two of Earth’s Green Lantern’s. Other than that, not much more has been said about the movie. Rumor’s have been swirling for a while now about who the two Green Lantern’s would be. The comic books has a long list of Earth’s Green Lantern’s including; Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, Simon Baz, and Jessica Cruz. The recent speculations was that the movie would follow the comics two newest Green Lantern’s Simon Baz, and Jessica Cruz, but D.C. has officially announced who the movie will follow.
The movie will follow the long speculated Green Lantern’s Hal Jordan and John Stewart. On the official website for the newly launched Mad Ghost Productions banner, a brief synopsis confirms the movie’s two leads.
“[One] of DC Comics’ greatest Super Hero universes, the film will feature Hal Jordan and John Stewart…”
It is probably a smart move on the part of DC to use those two Green Lantern’s as they are the most recognizable and popular. Geoff Johns has signed on to write and produce the script for the movie. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the movie will be based on Johns long running Green Lantern comics.
