Green Lantern Corps Won’t Release Until After 2020. Despite several members of the Justice League appearing in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Green Lantern won’t be one of them making an appearance. In fact, the superhero may not arrive until 2020.
It was strange for fans when they found that Green Lantern wasn’t included in the upcoming Justice League movie or even in a cameo for Batman v Superman. Warner Bros. finally cleared that up when they explained that they’re taking their time with developing the character after his failed attempt in the 2011 film. So it sounds like we may have to wait a little longer to see him than we originally thought.
“[Green Lantern] is an incredible character. He’s actually multiple incredible characters,” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Greg Silverman told EW. He also added:
There’s real opportunity there. We didn’t do a great job on that first Green Lantern movie. This is a character who deserves to be treated in the same way that Batman and Superman and Wonder Woman are being treated now, which is with great reverence. I guess I can say to the Green Lantern fans: if they can be patient with us, I think they’ll be really happy.
Patience may not be something we can handle, but we may have to stay strong since the studio isn’t willing to rush introducing the famed hero. We may not even get to see him on screen until perhaps after Justice League 2, which Silverman explained here:
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.
It will be a long wait for fans to finally see Green Lantern done right on screen. What do you guys think?
