We’ve got some great braking news for you. It has just been announced that one of the most-highly anticipated reboots from the DCEU has finally taken its next step forward and has been assigned its screenwriters. And that film is the Green Lantern Corps which is expected to hit theater screens in 2020!
Warner Bros. have handed the power rings over to both David Goyer and Justin Rhodes. Goyer is very familiar to DC fans. He’s worked on many of the DCEU’s top projects such the script for Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Begins as well as both Man Of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The studio has also announced that Goyer will assume the role of producer on the film as well.
Justin Rhodes is a newer screenwriter to the industry, with only a handful of script writing projects under his belt such as Unmanned, Grassroots, and Contract Killers.
Also just announced by DC Films are the film’s premise and the major characters involved. Fans have been wondering for quite some time which Lantern the films focus would be on. Many have suspected that this time around it would be Earth-bound Jon Stewart in the lead instead of Hal Jordan again in an effort to give the film more of a clean slate start.
Well, it turns that the main character will indeed be Jon Stewart AND Hal Jordan! That’s right, a Superhero-Buddy film. How freaking cool is that! Though, I shouldn’t really use the term “buddy” in this case. As many of you may know from the comics, Stewart and Jordon don’t always play nicely together when in the same sandbox. And that’s the way, it seems, that they’ll be portrayed on screen as well. The film is being described as having a “Lethal Weapon in space” story premise.
Hal Jordan is the most popular character in DC Comics Green as a Green Latern and was also the featured in the 2011 Green Lantern film. Jon Stewarts popularity as a Green Lantern comes primarily from being a character in DC’s animated Justice League TV series.
Wow, that’s a lot of big news for one day. I think I need a nap now.
What do you think about who’s been selected as screenwriters and main characters for the film? Let us know.
Green Lantern Corps. smashes onto theater screens on 7/24/2020.
