DC Extended Universe’s Green Lantern Corps is in development and will be made. The news comes after a confirmation from director David S. Goyer regarding the film.
DC fans have been anxious to know the status of the studio as well as many of their upcoming films lined up for production. One of them in the pipeline for several years right now is Green Lantern Corps.
Speaking to IGN at TCA 2018, David S. Goyer said that the film is “still in the works.” When asked about an update on the film, Goyer replied, “I don’t know. Who knows, especially with what’s currently going on with the DC universe? There’s obviously a whole recalibration happening with that right now.”
It is no secret that the DCEU is struggling at the moment after most of their recent films failed to perform well at the box office, the latest being Justice League. There have been talked about WB’s planning to rethink and re-plan their next course of action.
Green Lantern Corps is just one of the many films announced by Warner Bros. One year ago, Goyer was appointed to write the script for Green Lantern Corps, along with Justin Rhodes of Contract Killers fame.
At the time, it was revealed that Goyer would produce the film too along with Jon Berg, who a little later stepped down and moved to the role of production partner last month. It was only last week that Walter Hamada took over as the president of DC-based film production.
Green Lantern Corps will be a buddy-cop movie. Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern, who is a much older and experienced professional will train John Stewart, a young recruit in the ways of the Corps.
A member from the Green Lantern Corps was seen in a flashback scene in the recently released Justice League. Perhaps, fans will get to see John Stewart or Hal Jordon version of Green Lantern in an upcoming DC film as a cameo before their appearance in Green Lantern Corps. A similar strategy was planned earlier for Ryan Reynolds’ version of the space corp.
