RUMOR: Script Details Say ‘Green Lantern 2’ Gets More Cosmic, New Cast and Familiar Faces

Take this with a giant, no scratch that, massive mountain of salt. News on any DC Entertainment movie is hard to come by, but apparently Cosmic Book News have a source within the company that has details on the Green Lantern movie sequel script and even casting replacement.  And no its not Blake Lively.




Let’s start with a recap. We’ve known for a while now that Michael Green and Greg Berlanti were working on the script for GL2, and Michael Goldenberg was to rewrite. Then we were told that Goldenberg was working on “Wonder Woman” with no word on progress for the lantern movie. And of course, “Gangster Squad” writer Will Beall is handling the “Justice League” movie.

Now, and again please take this as a major rumor, but here are some main points of interest from the stuck in the development sequel script:


• Most of the film is set in space.

• At the start of the film, Hal Jordan and Sinestro are paired to stop an intergalactic serial killer, Arkillo, who Sinestro later frees to join his Corps and restore order to the universe.

• Sinestro’s decision to leave the Corps is mainly due to his distrust of the Guardians and the fact he feels that the universe laughs at the Green Lanterns. Sinestro feels that a new Corps should replace them.
• Sinestro visits Warworld to recruit members to his new Corps. Sinestro frees Amon Sur and recruits him to his new Corps.

• There is a reference to Amon Sur’s previous attempt to destroy the Corps, which happened in Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters videogame.
• Carol Ferris is kidnapped by Sinestro to draw Hal Jordan to him.
• Jordan requests that the Guardians deploy the entire Corps to Korugar to rescue Carol and defeat Sinestro’s Corps, but they deny his request. He subsequently makes a plea to the Corps via transmission of his ring. Several hundred respond and encounter Sinestro’s fledging Corps in a battle above Korugar.
• Hal, Kilowog and Tomar-Re use the large battle taking place above Korugar as a distraction to sneak to the surface of the planet to rescue Carol. There, they are confronted by Sinestro, Arkillo and Amon Sur. Hal and Sinestro evenly match each other, while Kilowog defeats Arkillo, and Tomar-Re defeats Amon Sur before they rescue Carol.
• The battle between the two Corps ends with the Sinestro Corps retreating due to the majority having little experience with the ring.
• There is a foreshadowing to the third film with a discussion by the Guardians mentioning that a “War of Light” is coming.

It would be very interesting to see these things come to light. Hell, it would be interesting to see WB try again but I’m extremely skeptical of these rumors. Especially this final one that says they’re looking to replace the former Kilowog voice Michael Clarke Duncan, who passed away earlier this year, with Green Lantern: The Animated Series version of Kilowog Kevin Michael Richardson.
