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.
There has been a lot of rumors going around about who will play Green Lantern in the Justice League or solo film and even if he will appear in the DC TV universe. One thing that seems to be the general consensus is that it will be the John Stewart version of Green Lantern.
The 2011 film featured GL Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds, the movie was considered a flop but at first it was thought they may still keep Reynolds as GL in the DC Movie universe. But Reynolds seem to not want to reprise the role and there was questions how they may tie that film to the Man Of Steel storyline going forward.
When DC/Warner Bros announce Batman V Superman film and that it would lead to the Justice League talk was who would play who. Nearly all the major players have been named with one exception Green Lantern. It has not been said which version would be in it or who would play him.
While that has been going on other rumors surfaced that GL could appear in DC's TV universe, they have steadily been adding characters from the DC comic universe into the Arrow/Flash shows and other spinoff's are planned and with the movie and TV universes being separate there is the possibility the same characters could appear in both.
While DC/Warner Bros haven't made any announcements rumors have surfaced some by the fans but some by the actors looking to or possible playing the character, for the movie universe Dwayne The Rock Johnson made comments to it before it was said he would play Black Adam in Shazam, Idris Elba has been a fan favorite but he is contractually obligated to Marvel and can't play a DC character, Tyrese Gibson has made a major push via social media and posted a number of pics of himself as Green Lantern.
Mow even the TV universe GL rumors are picking up, David Ramsey who plays John Diggle has given fuel to the rumor that Diggle is actually John Stewart, although Ferris Air has been mentioned which has to do with Hal and not John. There has been rumors of GL in the TV universe for a while.
One rumor that hasn't fit to this is Nathan Fillion possibly being GL he would play Hal most likely if the rumors were true, which could fit with a rumor of an older seasoned GL in the Justice League.
While they should really keep closer to the comics in whatever they do so they can build the Corps up but it looks like they will go a different direction to distinguish it from the 2011 film which isn't such a bad thing especially since it's part of a bigger cinematic universe.
We'll have to see what DC/Warner Bros decides which hopefully will happen soon, until then will have wait patiently.
