What To Expect From Geoff Johns’ ‘Green Lantern Corps’
After exiting his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns revealed that he will be writing the script for the upcoming Green Lantern Corps movie. The writer, who reintroduced Hal Jordan to the DC Universe and guided him forward for years, is the perfect choice to bring this franchise back to the big screen. No one has a better understanding of Hal Jordan as a character and what it takes to create an emotionally driven, explosive Green Lantern story.
The character may have already failed once at the box office, but that doesn’t mean Green Lantern doesn’t have potential to succeed on the big screen. So far, the DC Extended Universe has been very Earth-focused, and introducing the Green Lanterns is a perfect way to pivot to the stars. Full of cool characters and interesting ideas, the Green Lantern Corps may just be what the DC Extended Universe needs to kick things into gear.
