Warner Bros. and DC have been setting up for their superhero standalone films post Justice League by introducing some notable heroes in the ensemble films. But one hero who has been absent is Green Lantern.

We learned that the next Green Lantern film wouldn’t be about one particular Green Lantern but the entire Green Lantern Corps, with the possibility that one of them would make a cameo appearance in Justice League. Whether or not the rumor is true remains to be seen, however, it looks like WB is pushing forward with the film’s development by hiring David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to write the script. More on the story below.

Tyrese Gibson

It’s been four years since audiences saw a Green Lantern on the big screen. While the 2011 film was a disastrous flop, Warner Bros. and DC are now planning a big-screen reimagining of the character. Rather than just have one human be the Green Lantern, the studio announced Green Lantern Corps as one of their upcoming films for the DC Cinematic Universe during their panel at SDCC just a few weeks back.

Since the film is set for a 2020 release, long after Justice League Part 2 is out, its in very early development, but that hasn’t stopped the studio from courting actors. In an interview with Collider, Tyrese Gibson confirms that he has been talking to Warner Bros. about potentially starring in the Green Lantern Corps. More on the story below.

Ryan Reynolds took plenty of shots about being the Green Lantern at yesterday’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool) even mocked that if he got a suit, it shouldn’t be green or animated. Though Warner Bros might have wished they could turn back the clock and never have made their Reynolds , Green Lantern film, it does still exist. But with DC Films now fully realizing their comic book universe, they are announcing a slate of films of both heroes and villains.

During their panel yesterday, Warner Bros. widened the screens at Hall H to reveal all their heroes who would appear in Justice League. We already knew that Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) would be in the film, but as the screen continued to flash the Justice League roster, there was no name attached to Cyborg, though previous reports have said that Ray Fisher would play him.

But the biggest reveal was that there would be a DC film for The Green Lantern Corps. More below.

DC Rumors: Batman Solo Movie; Chris Pine As One Of Two Green Lanterns

The usually reliable Latino Review is reporting on some interesting new rumors surrounding Warner Brothers’ long-term plans for the expanded cinematic universe it is creating based on DC Comics’ stable of iconic superheroes.

The first is that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck will possibly both direct and star in The Batman, a reboot of the Dark Knight franchise. His Oscar-winning Argo scribe Chris Terrio (who also worked on the scripts for Dawn of Justice and the studio’s Justice League feature — the latter of which will be released in two parts with the first tentatively scheduled for a late 2017 release and the second for the summer of 2019) will write the script for a possible November 2018 theatrical release. This would put the most popular DC character in direct conflict with Marvel Studios’ eagerly awaited Captain Marvel, which will be their first female-headed blockbuster event.

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War banner

I don’t know why I never thought of a Star Trek and Green Lantern crossover before, but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. IDW Publishing, DC Comics, and CBS Consumer Products made the announcement this weekend at WonderCon 2015 that they are teaming up to release Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War this July. The six-issue mini-series will be written by Mike Johnson with art by Angel Hernandez.

The Spectrum War will feature Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps going into the world of Star Trek‘s 23rd Century, joining forces with the Federation after some of the Federation’s greatest enemies find themselves in possession of some Power Rings.

‘Justice League: Mortal’: The DC Comics Movie Event Forever Damned To Development Hell

Justice League

It’s good to see Warner Bros. and DC Comics finally starting to learn from their past mistakes in bringing their classic comic book superhero stable to the big screen. Outside of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy their future looked mighty bleak in the wake of the less-than-enthusiastic receptions given to Superman Returns and Green Lantern. Last week the long-in-the-works Man of Steel brought Superman back to the big screen to the tune of a record-smashing $128 million opening weekend despite mixed reviews. Warners/DC had been hedging their bets of Man of Steel being successful enough to begin constructing a long-running cinematic universe of multiple superhero movie franchises to rival Marvel Studios, with the end result being an all-star Justice League team-up film.

However, the Justice League movie has proved to be of even greater difficulty to get off the ground than the film adventure of any single DCU character. Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall took a crack at the project last year but his efforts were eventually discarded by the studio in favor of a fresh start overseen by David S. Goyer, the writer and hardcore comic fan who helped make Blade the first lucrative feature franchise out of a Marvel character and also co-wrote Batman Begins and wrote Man of Steel, as part of a three-picture deal that also includes a naturally inevitable Man of Steel sequel.
