By the time Snyder set to work on the redux, his last contribution to the superhero cinematic universe he kicked off for Warner Bros. with Man of Steel, he knew he’d by no means get to inform his bigger Green Lantern storyline. But that didn’t cease him from filming the Stewart cameo for Justice League anyway, which was later lower. After the discharge of the film, Snyder revealed idea artwork of the Green Lantern scene on his Vero account, exhibiting Stewart hovering above Bruce’s lakeside residence, prepared to supply his providers within the fights to come back. It’s a second that may have solidified a big-screen Justice League lineup whose Green Lantern omission has lengthy been conspicuous contemplating the character is a mainstay of the superhero crew within the comics.
Even if it’s not Snyder behind the wheel, will followers ever get a brand new Green Lantern film? Well, within the early days of the DCEU, WB had each intention of manufacturing a brand new tackle the character for theater audiences. After all, the DCEU was a contemporary begin for the entire studio’s big-name superheroes at a time when followers had already warmed as much as the concept of interconnected cinematic universes. A brand new universe meant the studio may transfer on from Martin Campbell’s CGI-heavy important and monetary catastrophe with out an excessive amount of problem. The DCEU wouldn’t even have to clarify why Reynolds was not enjoying Hal.
But after the DCEU’s rocky begin, the deliberate Green Lantern Corps. film was shelved by WB. Instead, the studio has teamed up with Seth Grahame-Smith, Marc Guggenheim, and Greg Berlanti for a brand new HBO Max sequence that can reportedly comply with Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Alan Scott throughout a number of eras. But it’s unclear in the mean time whether or not this present is meant to even happen within the DCEU, particularly with the crew chargeable for a lot of WB’s present slate of DC TV behind it. This present may happen in its personal universe or tie-in with the Arrowverse or the opposite DC choices on HBO Max.
More importantly, Hal Jordan and John Stewart — arguably the 2 hottest Green Lanterns — are lacking from the present’s lineup of characters…which is suspicious. Could WB as an alternative be saving these characters for the day it lastly takes its subsequent Green Lantern film off ice?
Fans’ continued assist for a DCEU, big-screen model of the character, and the 2011 film’s cirrent success on Netflix, may make a robust case that it’s lastly John Stewart’s time to shine. (Bathed in inexperienced mild, Carr completely appears to be like the half!) But WB will doubtless flip to Green Lantern Corps. as a extra correct measure for simply how hungry trendy audiences are for a brand new film. You’ll simply should make do with the 2011 flick for now.
