They also revealed the websites for the film the official Justice League movie website is located at justiceleaguemovie.com, the official Justice League Facebook is at https://www.facebook.com/justiceleagueofficial, and the official Justice League Twitter is at https://twitter.com/justiceleaguewb. At bottom is the teaser trailer from SDCC.

There’s been a lot of talk as to when Green Lantern will show up in the DCCU, both from fans, the media, as well as from Warner Bros/DC Comics themselves.
Dan Amboyer is listed as a drone pilot on IMDB and has hinted and teased that he may be Green Lantern, he does seem to fit the part, but Warner/DC seem to be mixed on it. Green Lantern was mentioned in the Dawn Of The Justice League special but Warner executive Greg Silverman suggests it maybe awhile before GL shows up possibly not till JL Part 2.
As our friends at The Blog Of Oa pointed out, and we agree with, that this is a disappointment to many. They can include GL now and I personal feel this would be better and won’t hurt the character; a matter of fact is I feel they can use the 2011 GL film as basis for this to happen, yes some may cringe at the thought but I will explain.
In the 2011 GL film much happens off world and what happens on Earth is actually brief time wise. Since this happen before Man Of Steel Clark could take a “not get involved” stance per what his father taught him, also since he isn’t Superman yet at that point, and Batman wouldn’t be able to get there before the situation resolved itself with GL defeating Parallax.
After the film GL could be in different part of sector 2814 dealing with other things or learning about his powers. This could all be handled much in the same way Bruce Wayne being in Metropolis is handled in BvS during the events of Man Of Steel. Also since BvS is more between Batman and Superman he could remain in space or possibly dealing with a bigger threat (Darkseid if rumors are correct).
There always is still the question mark as to where GL is in the DCCU whether or not this would be done since Abin Sur (who would be GL of sector 2814) should be there in theory and why hasn’t he shown up when Man Of Steel happens, yes I realize some things don’t get explained and are sometimes better off that way. Amboyer also has a similar look to Ryan Reynolds, it’s not like he looks completely different, so he would pass as the same version of the character and we know costumes change between films so there could be a way to explain it if they do.
This would all help build to the Corps film in 2020 being extra GL’s for sector 2814 might be needed due to the many threats, one of the reasons this happen in the comics. I know a lot of fans are concerned, hopefully all will work out for the best and we don’t get a Fantastic Four reboot type fiasco. We will continue to keep our eyes on future developments.
Zack Snyder tweeted a pic of himself and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) what's really interesting in the pic is the costumes in the pic. The obvious ones are Aquaman's and the Flash on the left but there are a number of other ones, some major question marks.
On the left side is a black costume people have made comments to it being Nightwing or Green Lantern but there is a possibility it could be an updated Bat suit closer to Christian Bale's suits. There is a pic that appears to be Mera behind Aquaman also there is a mannequin that is covered on that side.
On the right side there is a Bat cowl but there is another costume face away from the camera it appears to have gloves of some type and shoulder armor. On the table in the back there is an odd looking boot with flaps on the sides there also is a helmet that look somewhat like Dr. Fates helmet.
Well that a lot of hints to wet our appetites more as we get official info.
As we all know the Fantastic Four reboot was a major bust, both critics and fans agree on this. There has been a lot talk as to if they should have rebooted this franchise this soon, the previous film came out in 2005 and it’s sequel in 2007, among other issues. DC Comics has a major reboot in order in there DC Cinematic Universe with Green Lantern (scheduled for 2020) and fans may not realize the similarities between the two franchises and that it has very much the same risks.
The first Green Lantern film came out in 2011 and the reboot is planned for 2020 9 years apart, FF was 10 years (first film) and 8 years (for the sequel) apart from the current release so the time frames are basically the same. Ratings on the site Rotten Tomatoes are very close too GL got a 26% on the Tomato Meter and 46% audience score, FF got 27% and 46% respectively (the sequel did slightly better in both). Also per Box Office Mojo GL made $53 million opening weekend and $116 million overall, FF did $56 million opening weekend and $155 million overall (the sequel came in with $58 million and $131 million respectively).
There were very similar complaints on both films, with costumes (poor CGI for GL, rubber suit for the Thing), actors/acting, and the villains, especially in GL and the FF sequel, that many looked at as just a big cloud (Parallax/Galactus) rather then a noticeable, believable villain. Like the FF reboot Green Lantern will need to have differences to set itself apart.
There was good in the first film but to try to make it better, and different, they may lose some of the good stuff from the first film like Mark Strong’s performance as Sinestro. In the case of the first and current FF both films are origin stories the 2005 film’s origin was fine but in the new film they were given a new origin and it just doesn’t work well in the film. For GL they need to stick close to the first films origin, maybe just tweaking it slight, and not go with a very different origin. Or they may need to jump forward like what seems to be the case with Batman and skip the origin story at least for now.
DC and Warner Bros need to be careful in how they go about the whole thing, something that may help GL is that it’s included in the DC Cinematic Universe and not a solo franchise this time around, also there is the possibility (and most likely) that GL will be introduced before the solo film hits in the Justice League film(s). They have already done this in a small sense by not announcing who is playing GL despite a number of actors pushing for the role, although it could backfire at the same time by being too cautious. Another thing that may help GL is word that there will be multiple Green Lanterns for Earth not just one this could avoid fans focusing on one actors performance as the title charater, although it didn’t really help FF at all.
Whether FF issues are just related to studio/director/story issues or something else DC and Warner Bros definitely need to keep it in the back of there minds going into the reboot, DC fans really want them to one up Marvel and so far they haven't but it is still very early and we will have to wait to see what they can do.
While it wasn't exactly what we were hoping for it was announced at SDCC that the 2020 Green Lantern movie will now be Green Lantern Corps which does verify that there will be more then one Green Lantern.
There is still no word on which Green Lanterns or who will play them.
