A concept artist has revealed some of his work for a character cut from the final version of the 2011 Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds.
The Green Lantern movie came out in 2011, two years before Man of Steel started the DC Extended Universe. The film was met with negative reception, with audiences and critics alike hating the movie. Now, 8 years after release its release, concept artist Jerad S.Marantz has revealed artwork for a character that didn’t make the final cut. Here’s the character he posted on his Instagram:
The nixed character is a fallen Green Lantern that was infected by Parallax. It sounds like originally, Parallax was going to infect this lantern and take over her body and attack Abin Sur, freeing up the ring for Hal Jordan. We could’ve seen a cinematic yellow lantern before Sinestro.
Although Green Lantern had a mid-credits scene, the sequel was scrapped. Now, Warner Bros. is working on The Green Lantern Corps for the DCEU. This movie will serve as a reboot of the Green Lantern franchise and will erase the Ryan Reynolds version from continuity.
No cast has been revealed for the Green Lantern Corps film, nor has a director been announced. Fans have suggested many actors to star as Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Tom Cruise, Idris Elba, and Michael B Jordan have been some of the fan-favorites.
