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.
Boy oh boy, don’t we all wish we could have been there to witness last night’s truly spectacular Star Wars: The Force AwakensSan Diego Comic-Con panel that featured surprise guests (f*** yeah Harrison Ford!), a wonderful behind-the-scenes video, and concluded with a concert and fireworks display?
Wish no longer, my friends, because Flicks and the City has uploaded the full 61-minute panel moderated by Chris Hardwick to their YouTube channel and now we can all watch for free what many had to wait in line for a day to behold in person.

The first full day of the Hall H festivities started off with its biggest panel of the day for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II. The film franchise comes to its end later this year, after having grossed over $1 billion at the box office worldwide.
