Green Lantern Set To Appear In Justice League

Take this news with a grain of salt

Earlier this year, Producer Charles Roven said that Green Lantern will not appear in the DC Extended Universe until Justice League 2. This left many fans of the disheartened. Afterall, Green Lantern has been a founding member of the Justice League and has always had a great dynamic with Flash. So if course this felt all kinds of wrong. Moreover, it made sense to keep him far away from the current universe so that people would forget the awful Green Lantern (2011) which I’m sure everyone has. There is no indication of any sorts that the character will appear in the first Justice League film.

However, a new report in The Wrap suggests that we all maybe wrong. Veiled in a much larger article about what we know about the Justice League film so far, ace scooper Umberto Gonzalez a.k.a. El Mayimbe writes “A member of the Green Lantern Corps. will be seen in “Justice League” in a key sequence. 

This does confirm the fact that we will see a Green Lantern but who is he/her and what sequence is he talking about? Let me take a few wild guesses here. First of all we have no use of a Green Lantern casting at all. So this could potentially leave out seeing a Hal Jordan or Jon Stewart in action (again potentially). This could leave us with an option another ranger of the corps brought to life via motion-capture (the same way we saw Doomsday).

Now the key sequence of Mayimbe is talking of? Two candidates here. First, we already know that the film will open with a history lesson detailing the origins of the motherboxes and will feature the likes of Zeus and the old gods. So is it possible that we get a glimpse of the corps ? Maybe, but we have a more likely candidate – the finale. The big battle climax will certainly be galactic in nature with the League taking on Steppenwolf and the Parademons. So it makes the most sense for a member of an intergalactic police force to show up here, doesn’t it?

Again, these are all theories and guesses based on the information we have so far and nothing can be said for sure. Do you have any such theories? Which Lantern do you think will be showing up in the film? Let us know in the comments!
