Marc Guggenheim Would Love To See GREEN LANTERN In JUSTICE LEAGUE
The Green Lantern movie is an almost infamous film in DC comics lore now. Trying to cash in on the comic book movie B-list craze the way Marvel did with Iron Man, Warner Brothers unleashed Green Lantern into the world. However, things didn’t go as planned and the film was panned not only critically, but also barley made back its production budget at the box-office.
This committee of one didn’t hate the movie like most, however. The film was riddled with problems sure, but the movie had so much potential that not only do I hope to see a sequel, but I wish they would include Ryan Reynolds, who played Hal Jordan, as Green Lantern in Justice League.
Green Lantern writer and current Arrow executive producer hopes to see the character in the Justice League movie as well. While chatting with IGN he talked about his desire to see GL in the team-up movie, but didn’t really specify if he was talking about his version of the famed character. “I would love it,” Guggenheim said. “At the end of the day, I just want to see a great Justice League movie. I think they’re putting a lot of really cool pieces into play with the first two Superman movies and I’m basically a sucker for a great comic book movie. As long as they’re doing something awesome, I’ll be the first one in line.”
There have been a few casting announcements for Justice League such as Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot as DC’s Trinity of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman respectively. Ray Fisher was added to the cast of Batman Vs. Superman as Cyborg and it is anticipated that his role will carry over into Justice League as well. There are others, like The Rock, who are lined up for a DC movie, but it’s not for sure whether they will be featured in the shared universe or not.
