Details on the it are being kept under wraps, but we know that Green Lantern Corps will feature the long-awaited team-up between Hal Jordan and John Stewart. The film is said to be a buddy-cop movie and has been described as “Lethal Weapon in space” with an older, more experienced Hal Jordan training John Stewart in the ways of the Green Lantern Corps.
While no casting details have been revealed yet, Warner Bros. had a shortlist of actors it was interested in for the role of Hal Jordan in 2017. It included Tom Cruise, Bradley Cooper, Armie Hammer, Jake Gyllenhaal and even Ryan Reynolds, who now plays another comic book character, Deadpool.
Green Lantern Corps is one of many projects currently being developed for the DCEU. The list also includes The Batman, The Flash, The Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, Black Adam, Supergirl, and New Gods.

The CW Drops First Photos From Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Season 6 Premiere
The CW has released the first official photos from the sixth season premiere of Grant Gustin's The Flash.
The sixth season of The Flash is set to begin in just over one month and fans are curious to see how the latest chapter of the Grant Gustin series will build towards the long-looming Crisis on Infinite Earths. Now, The CW has released the first official photos from the season six premiere, titled "Into the Void," and they offer fans their first look at Grant Gustin's Barry Allen and the rest of Team Flash.
While the photos offer few details on what to expect from the season six opener, they do feature Grant Gustin and his co-stars gathered together in S.T.A.R. Labs. You check out the photos from the season 6 premiere of The Flash below and click "Next" to continue the gallery!
Full details on the sixth season of Grant Gustin's The Flash are under wraps, though Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy has joined the cast at DC Comics villain Bloodwork. In the comics, Bloodwork is a Central City morgue employee and hemophiliac who developed the ability to transform his flesh into blood-like physiology after experimenting with blood properties. The new season has also been teased to include an antagonist who will be the most personal villain Barry Allen has faced since Eobard Thawne.
The sixth season will also lead into highly-anticipated Arrowverse crossover titled Crisis on Infinite Earths and the back-half of the Grant Gustin series' next season will deal with the fallout from the five-part event. With Arrow coming to an end this fall after concluding its eight-episode final season, The Flash will also become The CW’s main DC Comics drama and Grant Gustin's Barry Allen will seemingly lead the other Arrowverse superheroes forward.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
The Flash season six premieres on October 8, 2019. Stay tuned for the latest news from the Arrowverse!
