Here’s What’s Going On With ‘Green Lantern’ and His Role In The DCEU

If you don’t want to know about the possible future of Green Lantern DON’T CONTINUE READING THIS, but if you’re nosy like I am you want to figure out where one of the founding JLA members will likely be you best keep reading.

We have no clue who or which Green Lantern will show up in any of these movies beyond some really impressive fan speculation about some actors here and there, but otherwise, nada. What it sounds like Warner Bros. is trying to tell us is not only will Green Lantern not likely show up in Batman v Superman, but he may not make an appearance until Justice League Part II. Producer Charles Roven had this to say:

“Every beat of the movie is not yet worked out. So there’s the possibility that he may or may not be in Justice League 2. For now, we felt that we were introducing enough characters that the best possible place we could put Green Lantern is some introduction in Justice League 2, or barring that, a movie after.”

After the monumental flop that was Ryan Reynolds in an animated green jump suit, Green Lantern has been a character loved by those who know his character from comics to animation, but that is where the character has laid comfortable and safe. In the film world, it’s understandable for the studio to be weary of one of its power player characters. There will be “dream sequences” scattered throughout the film from what sources are being fed and the messenger for those dreams could be one Ezra Miller as Flash while director Zack Snyder wants to make the world he’s building weird and unusual with “Easter eggs scattered throughout for fans”.

But I have to believe they won’t wait that long to show us one of the most popular superheroes in DC Comics lore.
