Green Lantern Corps shines light on writers David Goyer and Justin Rhodes

01.12.2017

Do you remember what I said yesterday about the DCEU Express chugging right along? Well, not only was I totally right, but it appears that Warner Bros. and DC Comics have pulled into the station, yet again, as it’s been announced that David Goyer and Justin Rhodes will pen the script for the upcoming GREEN LANTERN CORPS. It’s also to note that Goyer will produce the film with DC head honcho Geoff Johns and John Berg acting as the project’s executive producers.

What’s being described as a “Lethal Weapon in space”, GREEN LANTERN CORPS will be an origin story that will not only bury the embarrassing Ryan Reynolds-lead flop from 2011, but will also introduce audience members to a new Lantern. This time around, the story will feature both Hal Jordan and John Stewart as your main characters. Hmm … Lethal Weapon in space, huh? Does this mean that Jordan will act as the Riggs to Stewart’s Murtaugh?

With both Goyer and Rhodes furiously working on completing the script, one would surmise that we’ll be hearing a lot more about this film in the coming months.

For me, I’m really excited about this one. There is so much potential for GREEN LANTERN CORPS to be a bombastic, interstellar thrill ride of a film. Plus, the Green Lantern franchise has a ton of cool characters to explore. With any luck, this film generation of Green Lantern will give us proper representations of characters like Jessica Cruz, B’dg, Simon Baz, Bleez, and more!

GREEN LANTERN CORPS is currently scheduled for a 2020 release.

Extra Tidbit: Other Lanterns that could show up in this film: Alan Scott, Jade, Adara, Alia, Diamalon, Donna Parker, Droxelle, Ekron, as well as countless others!

David Goyer is definitely a red flag, but I feel like he's kind of like George Lucas: good at big picture story stuff, but needs to be reined in by a real writer and director. I haven't seen anything that Justin Rhodes has written so I'm hoping he can get the job done as far as dialogue and specific beats go. If Goyer winds up with just a story credit I'd give this a green bar.

Either way, seems like it could be a cool story if written/directed well! I don't know much about the Green

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) is my favorite DC character bar none. The abortion we got with Reynolds unfortunately is still fresh in my brain. That being said I hope this is great, I want this to be great, but its Goyer so its going to suck. How the fuck is Goyer allowed to even breathe the air in Hollywood anymore let alone touch a script or producing duties. I want this to be a 10, instead with Goyer we'll get a 2. The only reason I didn't say a 1 is because that is solely reserved for Uwe Boll.

I believe Uwe Boll retired. I think it was mentioned on this site. Of course you might already know that.

Ahh! And now I can't think of anything else other than a Shane Black scripted-directed Green Lantern Corps... damn you man! If only they remembered who wrote the original Leathal Weapon too :(

Green Lantern is my favorite DC superhero (obviously) and I think the idea of "Leathal Weapon in space" is clever and honestly, a pretty good fit for the character. However, I absolutely hate Goyer's writing (unless Jonathan Nolan rewrites it) so my enthusiasm for this one is a lot more muted than it otherwise would be.

I don't understand how Goyer hasn't been run out of Hollywood yet.

Good concept and the idea of 2 superpowered heroes working together (a team-up as opposed to a team) has not really been done before.
Anyone who knows the Lantern Corp knows it's got a lot of potential.

The only problem with this, is that the Green Lantern sucks.

Having Goyer signed on as a writer doesn't strike up much confidence, but I'm excited to see this new interpretation of Green Lantern make his debut in this new DCU regardless. I'm happy to that they're re-doing Hal Jordan and giving him another shot at redemption along with brining John Stewart along for the ride. I just hope they do a great job of casting of casting each Lantern like they've done so far with most of their characters since Man of Steel.

For director I would love to see

For director I would love to see Duncan Jones considered for this with Gyllenhaal as Hal, and Morris Chestnut as John Stewart.

Morris Chestnut? Why? Because he's a muscular black guy? He's a terrible actor, and completely irrelevant.

David Goyer being the writer gives me no hope that this will be even marginally enjoyable...He can help in coming up with stories, Batman Begins, but he is not a good writer.
