JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017): Green Lantern Corps Member will Appear in Film

Green Lantern Cyborg Batman Wonder Woman Superman

Justice League will feature Green Lantern Corps Member

There is a rumor that Green Lantern or a member of the Green Lantern Corps will appear in Justice League (2017). With a Green Lantern Corps. film scheduled to be released on July 24, 2020, having Green Lantern appear in Justice League strategically makes sense. It has been reported that a member of the Green Lantern Corps will appear during a key sequence in the film. Guy Gardner, Hal Jordan, and John Stewart are the human being Green Lanterns that were assigned to police Earth’s sector of the galaxy at various times in history. It can be assumed that one of them, and not a non-human, will be the Green Lantern to appear in Justice League. Each sector of the galaxy is assigned two Green Lanterns (except sector 2814), however, so there is a possibility that a extraterrestrial Green Lantern shows up in Justice League.

With the inclusion of Green Lantern, in presumably a cameo role, Justice League will now feature seven superheros (Green Lantern, Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Cyborg).

About the Green Lantern Corps:

The Green Lantern Corps is…a…intergalactic military/police force…They patrol the farthest reaches of the DC Universe at the behest of the Guardians, a race of immortals residing on the planet Oa. According to DC continuity, the Green Lantern Corps has been in existence for three billion years, surviving multiple conflicts both internal and foreign. Currently operating divided as pairs amongst the 3600 “sectors” of the universe, there are 7202 members (known commonly as Green Lanterns), two lanterns for every sector except sector 2814 which has 4 members. Each Green Lantern is given a power ring, a weapon granting the use of incredible abilities that are directed by the wearer’s own willpower.

Justice League‘s plot synopsis: “Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
