Warner Bros. Executives Addresses Green Lantern In DC Extended Universe

Green Lantern

One of the many DC Comics movie franchises that Warner Bros. Pictures will be launcing in the DC Extended Universe is the Green Lantern Corps which will be coming out June 19, 2020. That’s quite the time that fans of the Emerald Knight will have to wait for, but what about a possible entrance in one of the upcoming DC films that is happening in the next year or so?

In Entertainment Weekly’s major coverage of the DC Extended Universe, they asked Greg Silverman (Warner Bros. President for the creative development and worldwide production) along with producer Charles Rovens who is heavily involved with all the DC films, about how the Green Lantern mythology will make its way into this universe.

Silverman started by talking about the importance of adapting that mythology and bringing up the example of the 2011 Green Lantern film.

 “[Green Lantern] is an incredible character. He’s actually multiple incredible characters There’s real opportunity there. We didn’t do a great job on that first Green Lantern movie. This is a character who deserves to be treated in the same way that Batman and Superman and Wonder Woman are being treated now, which is with great reverence. I guess I can say to the Green Lantern fans: if they can be patient with us, I think they’ll be really happy.”

Rovens went on to tease that fans may not see Green Lantern – whether it be Hal Jordan, John Stewart, etc. – until the second part of Justice League that is coming out June 14, 2019.

“Every beat of the movie is not yet worked out. So there’s the possibility that he may or may not be in Justice League 2. For now, we felt that we were introducing enough characters that the best possible place we could put Green Lantern is some introduction in Justice League 2, or barring that, a movie after.”

    That makes me wonder if the DCEU will go off Earth at all until Justice League Part 2 or beyond.
