Back when I was reading comics all over the place, Green Lantern was my favorite. I liked the powers, I liked how many of them there were and I liked the whole space cop concept. So believe me when I say a killer Green Lantern movie is something I want.
But can Warner Bros do it? They already gave us a pretty bad one, and their new DC movies so far have been huge bummers. The answer doesn’t matter, since they’re going for it regardless.
We’ve heard about a Green Lantern Corps movie for almost two years. Now something is finally happening with it. According to Deadline , Justin Rhodes and everyone’s favorite, David Goyer, have been hired to write a screenplay. Goyer will also produce alongside Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.
The good news is that the film will feature Hal Jordan and John Stewart and that it’s being described as a Lethal Weapon in space. I want to believe it will be as cool as that sounds. I really, really do.
We’re going to be waiting a while to find out if that’s the case. A long while. This thing isn’t expected to come out until 2020.
