Could Green Lantern Corps be heading for a 2018 release with David Goyer at the helm?

20 March 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Warner Bros. could very well be stepping up the pace with the DC universe in a bid to try and catch-up with Marvel’s dominance of the big screen with a possible fast-tracking of Green Lantern Corps to be released next year alongside James Wan’s Aquaman.

With currently five DC projects under their wing for their next potential release, Green Lantern Corps is looking to pip the rest to the post with screenwriter David Goyer, currently tipped to take the helm on Suicide Squad 2, taking up its director’s chair according to The Tracking Board.

Jeff Sneider told Meet The Movie Press

“I’m hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself. When you look at screenwriters that are taking the plunge and directing these movies themselves, we saw rumours last month that Simon Kinberg was going to direct the next X-Men movie. »

Rumour: David S. Goyer could end up directing Green Lantern Corps

18 March 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in January it was revealed that David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) had signed on to produce Warner Bros.Green Lantern Corps, as well as co-writing the script with Justin Rhodes (Grassroots, Contract Killers).

Well, if Jeff Sneider on Meet the Movie Press is to be believed, Goyer “could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself.” The report follows Sneider’s claims that The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra is also in contention to direct another DC Films project, Suicide Squad 2.

In addition to his extensive comic book movie screenwriting experience, Goyer has directed Blade: Trinity, along with episodes of Da Vinci’s Demons and Flashforward.

‘Suicide Squad 2’ & ‘Green Lantern Corps’ Eye More Directors

17 March 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Warner Bros. and DC Films is looking to get something to join “Aquaman” on their 2018 release calendar, and “Suicide Squad 2” and “Green Lantern Corps” are among the contenders. One roadblock is that both pictures need directors (and the latter needs a cast), but it seems some names are being kicked around for the open job postings.

The Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider revealed on Meet The Movie Press that Jaume Collet-Serra was in the mix for the “Suicide Squad” sequel, while David Goyer — who is already co-writing “Green Lantern Corps” — may wind up directing that project too.

‘Green Lantern Corps’ May Be Directed by David S. Goyer

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment already have Aquaman shooting this year, taking the December release date vacated by Avatar 2. But they also hope to have another piece of the DC Expanded Universe in front of cameras before the end of the year. One of the less likely options was Green Lantern Corps, a […]

David Goyer Could Direct Green Lantern Corps

17 March 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a busy, busy week for the DC Extended Universe – but would you expect any less? With a packed slate of projects all brewing in various stages of development, updates have been arriving at an alarming rate. Earlier this week, we learned that the studio was hoping to put out a second DC film in 2018, to go along with Aquaman, and just a few hours ago, we reported on Jaume-Collet Serra joining the mix for the Suicide Squad 2 director hunt.

Now, we’ve got an update on Green Lantern Corps for you. Though still quite a ways away, the pic is already being penned by David Goyer and Justin Rhodes, as Warner Bros. continues to look for two actors to play Hal Jordan and John Stewart. But so far, nothing’s emerged about a potential director. Until now, that is. Tracking-Board’s Jeff Sneider has revealed that his »

Warner Bros. wants to shoot another DC movie this year following The Batman delay

17 March 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Warner Bros. delaying production of The Batman until next year and pushing back the Aquaman solo movie to December 2018, it is being reported that the studio is keen on shooting a new instalment of the DC Extended Universe this year for release in 2018.

According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, the top five choices for the studio are The Flash and Green Lantern Corps, along with recent additions to the slate Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, Justice League Dark (a.k.a. Dark Universe), although they are reportedly happy to have Aquaman as the sole DC Films release of 2018 if none of those can be readied in time.

With Batman likely shooting in 2018, WB still would like one more DC property to shoot this year other than Aquaman

Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) March 16, 2017

The 5 films being considered are Sirens, Flash, Lantern, Squad 2 and Dark Universe.

DC Extended Universe: Here Is Every Film Currently In Development

14 March 2017 5:11 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We recently ran a story here that walked through every X-Men film currently development. While we think that one is all well and good for keeping that universe straight, the real beast here is the DC Extended Universe. A few years back, Warner Bros announced an ambitious slate that consisted of nine films. Here’s how they were presented, and when they were supposed to hit:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder (2016)Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer (2016)Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot (2017)Justice League Part One, directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)The Flash, starring Ezra Miller (2018)Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa (2018)Shazam (2019)Justice League Part Two, directed by Zack Snyder (2019)Cyborg, starring Ray Fisher (2020)Green Lantern (2020)

As of this writing, the first four films are are on track to meet their release dates, but everything after »

Warner Bros. Reportedly Eyeing Kingsman Director Matthew Vaughn For Man Of Steel 2

13 March 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Man of Steel 2 is in active development, make no mistake about it. The sequel to Zack Snyder’s divisive franchise-starter has invariably slipped down the pecking order over at Warner Bros., who are still in the process of whipping their DC Extended Universe into shape after the back-to-back disappointments of Batman V Superman and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Last we reported on the follow-up, Henry Cavill was seemingly lending a helping hand to the film’s development, while a more recent DC blowout claimed Man of Steel 2 was quietly being prepped for a late 2019 release. The jury’s still out on that one, but Collider is reporting today that Matthew Vaughn is in early talks to direct Cavill’s second solo outing as the bespectacled Clark Kent.

Negotiations are ongoing, according to the outlet, but it’s important to note that even if Vaughn chooses to pass on Man of Steel »

Henry Cavill Trolls Justice League Fans Over Green Lantern Casting

1 March 2017 2:23 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world is still awaiting the arrival of the first Justice League trailer, which could literally drop any day now. The teaser probably won't reveal all of the secrets the movie has in store. Specifically, it is very doubtful that the rumored appearance of a Green Lantern Corps. member will be revealed in this new footage. If truly happening , that cameo will probably be kept under wraps until Justice League premieres in theaters. We still don't know who will be playing either of the confirmed Green Lanterns, Hal Jordan and John Stewart, but it feels a little bit like Henry Cavill might know something.

Henry Cavill, who plays Superman (at least when he's alive) in the DC Extended Universe, recently posted a few things to his Instagram which seemed innocent enough on the surface, but they also could be a bit of a Green Lantern tease. The first picture features »

Justice League Green Lantern Won't Be Hal Jordan or John Stewart?

24 February 2017 2:13 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Justice League, good or bad, is going to be an absolutely monumental movie. This will be the first time in history that the seven members of the DC Comics superhero team will unite on screen in live-action together. For those who may be doing the math, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman makes six, but the would-be seventh member Green Lantern has not been anywhere in the marketing for the Justice League movie. However, it looks like a member of the Green Lantern Corps. may, in fact, be appearing, which will complete the lineup and "unite the seven."

Film reporter Umberto Gonzalez recently did a live Q&A on Periscope and was discussing all things related to the DC Extended Universe. During the course of the Q&A, the subject of Green Lantern came up and he prefaced that what he is hearing should be taken as rumor, »

Rumor: Justice League Will Feature A Green Lantern

24 February 2017 11:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a while there, it didn’t sound like Warner Bros. was going to be doing much with the Green Lantern property. Though they announced Green Lantern Corps for 2020 a while back, there was really no news on it for quite some time, and given how poorly the 2011 film was received, perhaps that wasn’t too surprising. But about a month ago, the floodgates opened as we learned that David S. Goyer would be co-writing the film with Justin Rhodes.

Since then, we’ve also had a shortlist for Hal Jordan that included names like Armie Hammer, James Marsden, Bradley Cooper and even Ryan Reynolds. Not to mention a few actors have been voicing interest in the John Stewart role as well. So far, nothing’s been announced in terms of casting, but things are clearly heating up and if a new rumor is to be believed, we may be »

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Salvation: Column #6

Last time around, we left off with Warner Bros. doing what it could to overhaul the DC Extended Universe (Dceu). Today, we'll explore how some of the changes that were made could lead to an era of unbridled prosperity for the Dceu.

A New Sheriff In Town

Following the release of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. was left in a uniquely fascinating position. During the lead-up to that film they had effectively changed the guard up top, in terms of who was calling the shots. Prior to promoting DC Comics guru Geoff Johns to Co-President and Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment, the franchise didn't necessarily have a centralized brain. Unlike their chief rival, Marvel Studios, which has one man that everyone has to answer to (Kevin Feige »

[Editor's Note: This is a re-post of the last entry in this series. As I prepared for the latest installment, I realized that- through some sort of bizarre technical glitch- this post has disappeared from Lrm Online. The other four remained in place, but this one somehow vanished. I'm preparing Column #6 for later today, so you can reread this in the meantime.]

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm.

Last week, we left off with the arrival of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The film that began its first real rounds in the cinematic pop culture lexicon way back in 2002, and which gave birth to Batman Begins and Superman Returns– despite the fact neither of those films ended up factoring into the final evolution of the project- finally arrived on March 25, 2016.
