Green Lantern has been the one classic character from Justice League to pick the short straw since Warner and DC Comics rebooted their comic properties for the big screen. Ryan Reynolds played Hal Jordan in the famously panned film adaptation and joked about it at every point after its release. That could be a big reason why Warner is holding off on bringing back any form of the character for their big Justice League push, but now there are rumors that we might see some version of the character before the release of Green Lantern Corps in 2020.
According to The Wrap, we’ll be seeing a member of the intergalactic police force in a key sequence for Justice League around a year from now. What that could be and who will be featured is way up in the air, so is any solid confirmation that this is actually happening. It does seem likely, though, given the threat from outer space that is Steppenwolf and Darkseid’s forces from Apokalips. There’s also a bit to put together for part two of Justice League, including a possible cameo for Hal Jordan at that point.
