While we knew Cyborg, Flash and Aquaman may (or will) appear in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Johns cleared up that the characters will be a part of the cinematic universe’s “Justice League” — confirming that the Green Lantern Corps will be in on the action.
“We’ve been to the bottom of the ocean. We’ve been to ancient Greek mythology, we’ve been to the past and future with the Flash, we’ve been to the digital world with Cyborg. We still got to go to space. So the Green Lanterns and the Green Lantern Corps are coming to join the Justice League universe,” Johns said in the special.
Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman actors Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa, respectively, appeared in the special to discuss their characters. While no Green Lantern actors were present, several pieces of artwork showing Hal Jordan and John Stewart, among other Green Lanterns, were shown during Johns’ description of the Corps.
Prior to the special, Hal Jordan and John Stewart were rumored to be the leading ‘Lanterns in 2020’s “Green Lantern Corps” film — which has been described as a buddy cop movie, like “Lethal Weapon” — and it looks from the latest special that the two are closer to making their DC Cinematic Universe debuts.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” hits theaters on March 25, followed by “Suicide Squad” on August 5.
