Anyone else feel like someone is trying to bring balance into the force that is Warner Brother’s DC Extended Universe? The meetings, and the rumors about Affleck not being happy with the script to the constant reactionary spin-offs, you’d hope they’d try to slow that all down, right?
The news comes from Deadline where they report that David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel, The Blade Trinity) will be the screenwriter alongside Justin Rhodes. Goyer will produce the film as well which is actually pretty substantial news since he has worked on nearly every other DC property in recent years to critical and financial success.
I think the best part about this report is that it will follow the two Lanterns every fan wants to see and they are Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart. Jordan may be the most iconic Lantern who was once a pilot while Stewart was an ex-marine. Geoff Johns may be the biggest fan of Green Lantern out there with him bringing some of the most iconic story-lines to life in the New 52 run while Goyer is just as much a comic book nerd as the rest of them.
I don’t expect there to be much contact with original live-action Hal Jordan aka Ryan Reynolds for a plethora of reasons, but there have been crazier things happen. Still, that’d be flat out stupid to bring a guy back who, while not the problem, was a tie with the mediocrity that was the original Green Lantern film.
