If you’re going to make a new Green Lantern movie, you might as well get the guy responsible for the definitive comic book run of the character to steer the ship.
Earlier today, it was announced that Geoff Johns was stepping down from his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. But the popular and influential comic writer wasn’t being cast out into the void. Rather, he’s founded his own production company, Mad Ghost Productions, which will develop the long-gestating (it was announced in 2015) Green Lantern Corps movie via an exclusive partnership with Warner Bros.

A year ago, we learned that Batman Begins and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer was hired to write the script for DC and Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps movie alongside writer Justin Rhodes. Not long after, there were whispers that Goyer might end up directing the movie as well, but that rumor remains unconfirmed and the movie is still currently without a director.
Since then, we haven’t heard any concrete updates about the project. But that’s changed today, since an outlet caught up with Goyer yesterday and got him to confirm that the movie is “still in the works.” But it’s what he said next that paints a more interesting picture.

Green Lantern wasn’t the shining beacon for superhero movies that Warner Bros. anticipated when Ryan Reynolds donned the green ring in 2011. Since then, the DC Comics movies have experienced an overhaul with Man of Steel in 2013, and not a word was mentioned of Hal Jordan and his fellow green guardians in the new DC Extended Universe.
But that film wasn’t the last hurrah for the Green Lantern. The name will return not as a single hero but as the Green Lantern Corps, the team of human and aliens chosen by the mystical ring to protect the galaxy. With the announcement of that upcoming DCEU film, the possibilities for multiple Green Lantern heroes expands beyond the hothead pilot Hal Jordan — now fans of the Justice League animated series may even see the Green Lantern they grew up with: John Stewart. And Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green has the perfect casting suggestion for that character.

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment already have Aquaman shooting this year, taking the December release date vacated by Avatar 2. But they also hope to have another piece of the DC Expanded Universe in front of cameras before the end of the year. One of the less likely options was Green Lantern Corps, a film that doesn’t have a director (just like The Flash), but there may be one waiting in the wings.
A new rumor indicates that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David S. Goyer, who is co-writing Green Lantern Corps with Justin Rhodes, might end up directing Green Lantern Corps. Read More »

As of now, Aquaman is the only DC Comics movie that’s set to go into production for Warner Bros. Pictures this year. However, with a full slate of films announced to be in development, the studio is hoping to get at least one more film in the DC Expanded Universe going in 2017. Since The Batman is now delayed, there are five other possibilities, but which one will get the green light? Let’s sort through our options.

Of all the films on the upcoming DCEU slate, Green Lantern Corps might be the most mysterious. Yes, it’s got a release date — and, as of last week, screenwriters — but not much more than that. We don’t know who’ll direct it, who’ll star, or what the story will be.
In the absence of any concrete information, then, let’s engage in the time-honored traditions of wishful thinking and wild speculation. First up, actor Sterling K. Brown has also noticed Green Lantern Corps has yet to cast any leads, and would like to throw his hat into the ring. And next, director Duncan Jones — who, to be very clear, is not officially associated with the film in any way that we know of — has some thoughts on how to make the story interesting. Read More »
Warner Bros’ Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds was supposed to be the beginning of a new DC movie universe, but the film was critically slammed and did poorly at the box office ($220 million worldwide on a estimated $200 million budget). Six years later and Warner Bros is ready to try their hands at this beloved DC superhero once again with Green Lantern Corps. Today it was announced that the studio has hired a screenwriter and producer for the new film. Find out more about the Green Lantern Corps screenwriters and producers, after the jump.

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 »

Warner Bros. has already assembled most of its Justice League. We’ve got Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. But the seventh member of the team has remained a big fat question mark. At this point, despite the fact that Green Lantern Corps already has a 2020 release date locked in, we don’t even know which Green Lantern(s) will eventually suit up, much less who’ll play him (or them).
And it may that stay for a while. Although many had hoped we’d get our first look at a Green Lantern in 2017’s Justice League: Part One or even this spring’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. says we won’t meet him until 2019’s Justice League: Part Two — or possibly even later.

Grammy winner turned actor Tyrese Gibson already counts two big franchises in his career with Transformers and Fast and Furious, but early this year we learned the actor was campaigning hard to be the new Green Lantern for the developing DC Comics cinematic universe.
Gibson seemed to hint that a big announcement was coming at Comic-Con, but the only thing we learned in San Diego was that the reboot of the aforementioned DC Comics property was called Green Lantern Corps., essentially confirming the previous rumor that there would be two Green Lanterns taking the lead this time, almost in a buddy cop kind of scenario.
Now the actor has confirmed that he has met with Warner Bros. Pictures about playing Green Lantern, but that’s about all he can say right now. Find out more about the potential of Tyrese Gibson playing Green Lantern below. Read More »
