Three days ago saw a reported schedule released for the Warner Bros. DC Comics movies.
Among the list was a Flash and Green Lantern team-up said to be coming Christmas 2017.
Following the article, we were told that some of the list actually included TV movies.
Now it's been confirmed to us by a source close to WB that the Flash and Green Lantern team-up will be a TV movie on the CW.
We know that Grant Gustin recently debuted as Barry Allen in Season 2 of Arrow, and The Flash series premiers this Fall on the CW.
Green Lantern has already been hinted at in the Arrow universe with mention of Coast City and Ferris Air.
Last year saw Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim mention that using Green Lantern is something they have definitely talked about.
As both are set in the Arrow universe, we are guessing it's also possible the TV movie could feature Stephen Amell as well.
Amell is also set appear in the pilot episode of The Flash.
While certain parts of this make sense I still wonder about the movie side of it a Justice League movie should have Green lantern and the Flash in it, would this mean there are separate TV and movie universes or like Marvels Agents of Shield would there be a cross over between the two, guess we will find out soon.
If the rumors are true Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be Black Adam in the forthcoming Shazam film and Jason Momoa will be Aquaman in Justice League, and possible Batman V Superman. It has been rumored for a while that Johnson would play some DC character possible GL John Stewart or Lobo as well as Black Adam, he certainly fits the character's look (especially in the pic at right). Momoa has also been rumored for Aquaman for a while. As of now these are still rumors but as we reported yesterday DC Comics looks to make an announcement at SDCC pertaining to there movie line-up and possible what characters are involved and who will play them.
A number of rumors have come out pertaining to the Justice League movie, Latino-Review has posted that the film will be shot back to back with Batman V Superman and has a release date of May 5, 2017. It is also rumored to use the New 52 roster from the comics.
Also Cosmic Book News via Nikki Finke has posted a movie line-up that includes a Green Lantern/Flash team-up film among others it also states Ryan Renyolds won't return as Green Lantern. Below is the rumored movie line-up. Another note is that Batman V Superman was delayed due to casting of the other members of the Justice League so they could make sure they were all set before filming and signed to long term contracts.
Many of these rumors are supposedly set to be announced at SDCC in July.

July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
