GREEN LANTERN MOVIE CONNECTION

The Green Lantern movie released back in 2011 was a failure in the box office. This superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds told the familiar story of Hal Jordan and failed to tell a compelling story of one of the oldest DC superheroes of all time.

The comic authors Geff Johns and Greg Berlanti who are working on the series were also involved in the 2011 movie. With a longer format, the creators believe they can tell a more compelling story of the Lanterns for the fans.

Though a green lantern movie was announced as part of the DC extended Universe focusing on the Green Lantern Corp. where the focus was across the galaxy rather than earth. Since the DCEU has been on a halt following the Justice League debacle, it is possible that the movie might not be coming out any time soon or possibly canceled.

The series is the only thing that is confirmed at the moment and it is quite possible that it might be the only Green Lantern story that the fans might get at least for a while. With the upcoming Batman, Flash and Black Adam movies, it is possible that the fans will get more information on the possibility of the fan-favorite superhero big screen.
