There isn’t much to go on for ‘Green Lantern Corps‘ quite yet but Geoff Johns is starting to drop a few details. He may have stepped down as head of the studio recently but the man who helped make his name in DC by writing the ‘Green Lantern‘ comic is still on board to pen the upcoming film.
This is a rather “personal” project for the creator that he is passionate about.
While there isn’t much in the way of details here, if you enjoyed what Johns did with the ‘Green Lantern’ comic during his tenure than this sounds like a movie that will be made for you!
“I’ve started I just can’t really talk…it’s just too early. The truth is I really want to write a great script, and get the script right, and then we’ll talk more about it once we get really going. Because we talk about development all the time and people like, development gets out there and leaks. And this is really something again, like Stargirl, is very personal to me. I want to make sure I write the best script I can possibly write, so I need to go away in a cave and write that script and finish it and then come out and go ‘okay’ and work with the guys and really make sure we’ve got the best story to tell and the best way into this character. I think we have a lot of things in it that. People know my run from Green Lantern, and so they shouldn’t be too surprised by seeing what we bring into it.”
As mentioned above, before becoming the President of DC Entertainment he wrote the comic ‘Green Lantern’ series for years and knew the characters like the back of his hand. Not only should this be a treat for comic fans but moviegoers, in general, will hopefully get a film that can allow us to forget that time Ryan Reynolds wore the ring.
The slate for DC Films isn’t quite set in stone as Marvel Studios so it isn’t clear as to when we might hope to see ‘Green Lantern Corps’ be released. However, as Johns is just starting the script, I think we’ve got a couple of years before we even start to hear solid details about it.
Are you looking forward to seeing what Geoff Johns helps craft with ‘Green Lantern Corps’? With this sounding like it could potentially be covering the cosmic side of things would you expect this to have any crossovers with the existing DC properties? Share your thoughts below!
