Fresh off the rumor that we’ll be getting three Earth lanterns in the upcoming (2020 is so far away!) GLC movie, comes the word that Warner Bros. has a director in mind. You may know him as the guy who was supposed to helm the original “Justice League” film that was scrapped years ago or maybe as the guy who directed the critical and commercial hit that was “Mad Max: Fury Road”. He is George Miller and he’s quite the SFX guru.
2020 seems like a long time from now, but considering how long special effects take to get just right, it probably makes sense for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment to narrow down some major details of the upcoming Green Lantern Corps film. We’re in 2016 and today, well today we have super hot rumor that the title already spoiled for you featuring 3 major Green Lanterns. And not the three you may have thought of.
Entertainment Weekly spoke with Warner Bros. President of Creative Development Greg Silverman and Producer Charles Roven about Green Lantern and how he won’t be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He even admits that the 2011 film wasn’t good and well, take a look at the quotes below. Silverman wants us lantern fans to be patient.
Last night (January 19th), DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer and former Green Lantern writer Geoff Johns appeared on the CW Network to discuss the upcoming DC films and characters. Alongside super geek and film director Kevin Smith, Johns teased the recently announced Green Lantern Corps movie while showing off some comic work (that we’ve seen before) from Doug Mahnke, Ivan Reis and Jim Lee among others. The entire television special is available online at the CW (which is filled with Batman v Superman and Wonder Woman clips), but check below for the Green Lantern related bit.
Whoa! Talk about a helluva move up! Ben Affleck and DC Entertaonment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are reportedly deep in development mode, co-writing a standalone Batman film, with Affleck also slated to star and direct.
