We've provided some of our own choices for the part of John Stewart, who will be making his live-action debut on the big screen in Green Lantern Corps. After the less than stellar outing of the Ryan Reynolds led Green Lantern movie, it nearly seemed like another attempt to bring the characters and the story to the big screen might not happen.
Deadline describes the movie as "Lethal Weapon in space" and states that it will be an origin story.
In the comics, Hal Jordan is the most famous member of the Green Lantern Corps, who are an interstellar police force tasked with protecting different sectors of the universe, while Stewart is a former Marine sniper and the fourth Green Lantern of Earth alongside Jordan, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner.
Sterling K. Brown is gung-ho about enlisting in the Green Lantern Corps.
It looks like DC's next big project will be a film based on the Green Lantern Corps.
Green Lantern Corps's last reported release date is July 24, 2020, although Warner Bros. has seemingly backed off some of their previously announced dates. Producers for the film have been named as well, with Goyer also acting as producer along with Geoff Johns, who spent nine years writing Green Lantern comics.
Sources says that they are working quickly to get a script so they are able to hire a director as soon as possible. After the phenomenal success of the rebooted Batman franchise, Goyer went on to write Man of Steel (2013) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) which were not as highly praised as his work with Nolan-with the latter film being highly polarizing and receiving mostly negative reviews. But an actor is already campaigning to play the character.
"Dear powers that be, if you are looking for someone to play John Stewart, I humbly submit my name".
As for Hal Jordan, rumors have circulated around Armmie Hammer and Jamie Dornan - but there's a chance Ryan Reynolds could return to the role to redeem the original.
We all know exactly whose fault this is: Ryan Reynolds.
