Warner and DC's shock announcement means we can finally rid our memories of the last Green Lantern film. But what does the Green Lantern Corps film mean in terms of the DC Cinematic Universe… Well it will aim to do what Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy did for them… sending the narrative beyond Earth. Whoever is playing the Lanterns, this announcement means the story will less likely be a origins tale and take the audience straight into the cosmic adventures. Rumours that 2 or more human lanterns would be involved also aims to push the narrative towards a team up movie ala Suicide Squad or a Justice League in space.
What is not uncertain, is the cosmic storytelling opens up for sweaty comic book fans like myself to be able to see the likes of Darkseid, Auron, Krona or even the Sinestro Corps come to the silver screen quicker.
Let me know what you think.
