Newly revealed concept art shows off what the John Stewart Green Lantern could’ve looked like in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Although Zack Snyder’s Justice League featured two Green Lanterns throughout the film, Yalan Gur and Kilowog, the ending scene was originally meant to see John Stewart visit Bruce Wayne instead of Martian Manhunter. Although Warner Bros. has a few Green Lantern related projects in development, it’s disappointing that John Stewart wasn’t given the opportunity to appear in the film. But a new design from a concept artist who worked on the film reveals what his suit would’ve looked like.
Jojo Aguilar took to Twitter to unveil the concept art they’d been working on with Zack Snyder for Justice League, showing off designs of Granny Goodness, Martian Manhunter, Joker and John Stewart’s Green Lantern. The cosmic cop’s suit keeps in the typical style of his comic counterpart, but makes the green sections of the costume look more like armor. Surprisingly, the director also considered bringing Ryan Reynolds back for a scene as his version of Hal Jordan, but that never materialized. Take a look at the concept art of John Stewart’s Green Lantern in Justice League below.

Here is the official synopsis for the Snyder Cut:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
