The Green Lantern will reportedly be featured in the upcoming Justice League. Green Lantern will be joining other DC superheroes including Batman, Aquaman, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman and The Flash, under Zack Snyder’s directorial guidance. The report came from the editor-in-chief of Heroic Hollywood, Umberto Gonzales.
Gonzales is a Periscoper who also works for the Wrap and frequently drops some reliable Hollywood scoops. A fan asked Gonzales during a live broadcast regarding the upcoming Justice League film. He confirmed that there will be a Green Lantern in the meet up of the most famous DC heroes.
Gonzales stated, “There is a Green Lantern in Justice League. I forgot how to pronounce him. I forgot the name of the Green Lantern in Justice League, so we’ll see. Hey, maybe by that time they get to cast Hal Jordan and next we’ll throw him in there too who knows.”
Gonzales even went as far as to confirm the participation of Green Lantern by repeating his statement. He also stated that he will not be giving out any spoilers regarding the movie’s plot. Gonzales mentioned that the name of the Green Lantern sounded funny to him which does not narrow down as to who will play the character.
As of the moment, there is no verification as to who will portray Green Lantern’s character. In 2011, Ryan Reynolds portrayed the role of Green Lantern’s Hal Jordan. Rumor has it that the casting executives are considering to let him return to the Green Lantern Corps. However, there is no confirmation about Reynolds’ return. Moreover, Reynolds portrayed Deadpool, a Marvel Comics character. If ever he returns to his role as the Green Lantern, it would be interesting to see Reynolds’ suit up as a Marvel and DC character.
As of the moment, the production is currently in the process of hiring the Green Lantern Corps. The actors being considered to play Hal Jordan are Armie Hammer, James Marden, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper and Tom Cruise.
