Could 2020 be the year of John Stewart? Possibly. Well, actually according to a recent rumor from Collider, we might actually get a live action Guy Gardner soon! How about that for some late Tuesday news!
Keep in mind here that even the site reporting this claimed it was a rumor and its only what they are “hearing.” Check out what they had to say below. Emphasis mine.
…we’re hearing that the new Green Lantern movie will focus on more than one human Green Lantern. There are plenty of “Green Lanterns” across the universe, as they’re an intergalactic police force who wield powerful rings whose energy is derived from their user’s willpower. Their only weakness is the yellow energy of fear.
The most popular Green Lantern is Hal Jordan, who was the main character in the 2011 movie. However, Guy Gardner and John Stewart later followed Jordan, and they weren’t the last in the comics. But we’re hearing possibly two or all three—Jordan, Stewart, and Gardner—could be the leads of Warner Bros’ Green Lantern reboot.
Furthermore, the franchise will continue to focus on different Green Lanterns and never on just one, so really the Green Lantern movies look like they’ll be more about the Green Lantern Corps, which is an interesting approach.
Soak that all in fans. Soak it all in because here’s a bit more to get you overhyped five years in advance.
…there’s a real possibility that Warner Bros. will introduce the Green Lanterns at Comic-Con this year at their panel in Hall H on Saturday. And if WB does bring on multiple Green Lanterns, then presumably one or more of them will pop up in Justice League.
Comic-Con International 2015 just got a whole hell of a lot more interesting for us lantern fans.
