Fans of Greg Berlanti‘s Arrowverse should be especially excited by the news that is coming out of the HBO Max press event. The showrunner who is behind hit CW DC shows like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Batwoman will now be working on two new DC shows that will be available for streaming exclusively on HBO Max.
It’s been announced that Berlanti will be developing Green Lantern and Strange Adventures series, which will be among the many new titles featured on the streaming service. More on the report below.
Warner Bros. has put another Superman film on the back burner. The film has struggled to get even a sequel announcement and now that Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman, it seems very unlikely we will ever get a Man of Steel 2. The only possible person who could have prevented this all from happening was Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie. The filmmaker had worked with Cavill on the latest Mission: Impossible film, and even talked to the actor about a possible sequel. However, nothing came of it.
But this wouldn’t be the first time that he has been approached to direct a DCEU film. A new interview also reveals that he was also in the mix to direct Green Lantern. More on the report below.
Warner Bros. and DC have been setting up for their superhero standalone films post Justice League by introducing some notable heroes in the ensemble films. But one hero who has been absent is Green Lantern.
We learned that the next Green Lantern film wouldn’t be about one particular Green Lantern but the entire Green Lantern Corps, with the possibility that one of them would make a cameo appearance in Justice League. Whether or not the rumor is true remains to be seen, however, it looks like WB is pushing forward with the film’s development by hiring David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to write the script. More on the story below.
It’s been four years since audiences saw a Green Lantern on the big screen. While the 2011 film was a disastrous flop, Warner Bros. and DC are now planning a big-screen reimagining of the character. Rather than just have one human be the Green Lantern, the studio announcedGreen Lantern Corps as one of their upcoming films for the DC Cinematic Universe during their panel at SDCC just a few weeks back.
Since the film is set for a 2020 release, long after Justice League Part 2 is out, its in very early development, but that hasn’t stopped the studio from courting actors. In an interview with Collider, Tyrese Gibson confirms that he has been talking to Warner Bros. about potentially starring in the Green Lantern Corps. More on the story below.
Ryan Reynolds took plenty of shots about being the Green Lantern at yesterday’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool) even mocked that if he got a suit, it shouldn’t be green or animated. Though Warner Bros might have wished they could turn back the clock and never have made their Reynolds , Green Lantern film, it does still exist. But with DC Films now fully realizing their comic book universe, they are announcing a slate of films of both heroes and villains.
During their panel yesterday, Warner Bros. widened the screens at Hall H to reveal all their heroes who would appear in Justice League. We already knew that Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) would be in the film, but as the screen continued to flash the Justice League roster, there was no name attached to Cyborg, though previous reports have said that Ray Fisher would play him.
But the biggest reveal was that there would be a DC film for The Green Lantern Corps. More below.
