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.
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.
