Of all the films announced so far for Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe franchise, none is more mysterious than Green Lantern Corps. Though it was officially announced last year, with a 2020 release date locked in and everything, we know next to nothing about the project — not who’ll star, not who’ll write or direct, not even which Green Lantern(s) will be in the movie.
But it sounds like that’ll start to change soon. According to a new report, next year’s Justice League will be the first DCEU film to feature a member of the Green Lantern Corps. More on the Justice League Green Lantern appearance below. Read More »

Many of Justice League‘s key roles were filled even before the film entered pre-production, because many of those characters were needed for Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Still more of them were cast back in the spring, as shooting got underway. But there’s been one glaring omission this whole time.
Though we’ve known for months that the villain of Justice League would be Steppenwolf, we’re just now learning who’ll play the part. Irish actor Ciarán Hinds has joined Justice League to portray Steppenwolf through the power of mo-cap. Hinds is probably best known right now in the U.S. for playing Mance Rayder in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Read More »

Two weeks ago we got our first look at Mera, the Queen of Atlantis and wife of Aquaman (Jason Momoa). She plays a role in Zack Snyder‘s Justice League, which recently wrapped shooting in London, but the size of her role in that film remains unknown. We do know the character will have a large part to play in James Wan‘s Aquaman. The director, who envisions the film as a “swashbuckling action adventure” and a “high seas adventure story,” says Aquaman and Mera are far from married at the start of Aquaman.
Below, learn more about the Aquaman and Mera relationship.
