One of the DC Comics films that Warner Bros. Pictures is working on is Green Lantern Corps which a few month ago tapped David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel) and Justin Rhodes (Contract Killers) to write the screenplay for the film. But it appears that one of them might be serving another big role on the DC project.
The Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider, who is one of the hosts of Meet The Movie Press, revealed on this week’s episode that he has heard Goyer being potentially lined up to direct the Green Lantern film.
“This one doesn’t have a director either, but it has a writer and it has a producer. I’m hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself. When you look at screenwriters that are taking the plunge and directing these movies themselves, we saw rumors last month that Simon Kinberg was going to direct the next X-Men movie. David Goyer is responsible for this entire DC Universe, he wrote Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. He wrote Man of Steel, he is the architect, if you will. He is writing and producing Green Lantern Corps, so it’s just very well, what I have heard, one of those situations where he could be like “Listen, I think I may be the best guy for the job, nobody knows this like I do.”
Would you want to see David S. Goyer direct the film? Sound off in the comments below.
Green Lantern Corps is projected for release on July 24, 2020.

7 Green Lantern Stories We’d Love To See Adapted
While it’s still unclear whether or not Green Lantern will debut in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League film, the hero is eventually set to hit the big screen again in 2020 with Green Lantern Corps. The real mystery is what kind of Lantern stories will the movie have and who will wield a ring? The only thing I know is it’s not a good idea to wait for Ryan “Deadpool” Reynolds to mutter the Green Lantern oath on the big screen anytime soon.
There are so many stories and unique Green Lanterns the movie could draw from, so at the end of the day I hope the material is treated with the respect it deserves. It took some hard work, but I whittled my favorite stories down to this list of 7 easily adaptable arc that show off some of the action and emotion Green Lantern has to offer. Don’t expect to recommend any simple origin stories here though, man oh man am I tired of seeing those.
