Green Lantern appearing in Justice League?

2011’s Green Lantern film starting Ryan Reynolds has few redeeming qualities, and despite Geoff Johns involvement with the film, it crushed the hearts of Green Lantern fans around the world. Needless to say the franchise was abandoned after its one failed start, but it’s always just been a matter of time before the Green Lantern Corps made it back to the big screen in one form or another. It seems this might happen a lot sooner than expected, obviously Green Lantern was a part of the DC Cinematic Universe plan which launched with Man of Steel, but a solo film for the character has always been a bit further down the road, currently slated for 2020.

New reports are suggesting however that a Green Lantern (no specifics about which one) will appear in the upcoming DC event film Justice League. If the Green Lantern film DC are working on is truly more a Green Lantern Corps than solo film, the individual to appear in Justice League could be anyone from Guy Gardner, to Hal Jordan, to even an off world member such as Kilowog or Sinestro.

While it may simply be a small role, or even a cameo, Green Lantern looks to be another character in a large cast making up the Justice League film. Many of these characters will be introduced to audiences for the first time through the film. With so many characters to juggle, with the challenge of delivering a compelling villain, Justice League will need a finely balanced script to capture all those elements and tie them together into a cohesive and exciting story!

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
