Green Lantern Reboot Focuses on Hal Jordan and John Stewart!!!
Warner Bros. is back to the drawing board with The Green Lantern after the 2011 film failed with fans, so now 2011’s Green Lantern Reboot Focuses on Hal Jordan and John Stewart.
The only problem is fans of the Green Lantern are going to have to wait until 2020 when the superhero gets a second chance at a solo film.
Unlike many fans, CelebNMusic247.com enjoyed the 2011 Green Lantern with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who played Hal Jordan, but fans didn’t take to Ryans quicky sense of humor for Hal.
Now, The Green Lantern is getting completely reimagined and fans can most likely be introduced to The Green Lantern in either Justice League Part One or Part Two.
When it comes to the reboot of The Green Lantern we’ve heard that the studio taking a radical and welcome approach this time around.
Here is the report via Collider:
Keep in mind that the movie is still in early development and a lot of things can change, but we’re hearing that the new Green Lantern movie will focus on more than one human Green Lantern. There are plenty of “Green Lanterns” across the universe, as they’re an intergalactic police force who wield powerful rings whose energy is derived from their user’s willpower. Their only weakness is the yellow energy of fear.
The most popular Green Lantern is Hal Jordan, who was the main character in the 2011 movie. However, Guy Gardner and John Stewart later followed Jordan, and they weren’t the last in the comics. But we’re hearing possibly two or all three—Jordan, Stewart, and Gardner—could be the leads of Warner Bros’ Green Lantern reboot.
Furthermore, the franchise will continue to focus on different Green Lanterns and never on just one, so really the Green Lantern movies look like they’ll be more about the Green Lantern Corps, which is an interesting approach.
But before we get there, the plan is just to focus on these two or three human Green Lanterns, and there’s a real possibility that Warner Bros. will introduce the Green Lanterns at Comic-Con this year at their panel in Hall H on Saturday. And if WB does bring on multiple Green Lanterns, then presumably one or more of them will pop up in Justice League.
Here is a little about the triumvirate of Green Lanterns that might lead the reboot:
Hal Jordan was a test pilot who was chosen by Green Lantern Corps member Abin Sur, whose spaceship crashed on Earth. Abin Sur was dying and used his ring to seek out someone who was “utterly honest and born without fear”, and it landed on Jordan. Jordan received Abin Sur’s power ring as well as the battery (the green lantern) that powered it.
Jordan has had a rough go of it in the DC Universe. He was taken over by the alien Parallax, a creature of pure fear that broke free of its imprisonment in the Central Power Battery and grafted itself onto Jordan’s soul. Jordan then proceeded to cause a ruckus in the DC Universe, killing some Green Lanterns before he finally was able to use his willpower to break free of Parallax’s hold.
Which leads to the problem of the 2011 feature film, because it didn’t follow the comic like it should have. Instead Hal killed Parallax in the film and we NEVER got to see him fight Parallax like he did in the DC Universe comics.
Despite the issues of Hal in the 2011 film, the character was introduced in 1958 and Hal is also a founding member of the Justice League of America. He has also been known as Parallax and the Spectre. After break free of Parallax’s hold Hal seeks to atone for his actions while under Parallax’s influence, he becomes the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 once again. He also rejoins the Justice League, despite Batman’s seeming mistrust of him.
Sounds interesting right?
As for, Guy Gardner, he made his first appearance in Green Lantern is in #59 (March, 1968). Gardner, one of Jordan’s backups, but a power battery blew up in his face, and put him in a coma. He was later revived and when the Guardians—an alien race on the planet Oa who oversee the Green Lantern Corps—broke up into factions, he was chosen as one of their champions.
“Guy was very emotionally unstable, although he still mostly managed to fight valiantly. He has gone through many changes, including wielding Sinestro’s yellow Guardian power ring, then gaining and losing Vuldarian powers, and readmission to the Corps during Green Lantern: Rebirth.”
Jordan’s other backup was an architect from Detroit who was called into action when Guy Gardner went into a coma. We feel that John Stewart will be MOST popular with fans of the DC Universe since he first appeared in Green Lantern Vol. 2 #87. John has been in 1190 issues of the Green Lantern. John’s was created in 1971, but the character’s appearances were sparse until the 1980’s. John’s real break through after his initial appearances came when he was given the lead role in Green Lantern from 1984 to 86. (The character was created by writer Dennis O’Neil and artist Neal Adams).
Stewart is a social activist, and U.S. Marine sniper, John Stewart was selected by the Guardians of the Universe to be one of the Green Lanterns for Sector 2814. His distinguished service in the Corps has resulted in a place among the Oan Honor Guard and the position of chief trainer for new Lantern recruits. Stewart appeared as a main member of the Justice League and overseed the Young Justice team.
John Stewart aka The Green Lantern is the MOST anticipated human Green Lantern the fans want to see.
