In brightest day, in blackest night, no movie rumor shall escape our sight. Next year’s Justice League has been sans Green Lantern so far, with no news for sure that the intergalactic crimefighter will appear in the movie, despite the fact that he’s historically been a hugely important member of the group. Today, it’s now rumored that the Green Lantern Corps will appear in the movie, but it might not be our familiar human member of the force.
It’s never entirely clear where DC draws the line at major heroes and villains in The CW series, given the use of characters like Superman and Flash, but not Batman. Green Lantern too has been given frequent Arrow reference, though producers now officially state they “could never” feature the character in brightest day, or blackest night.
The early days of Arrow Season 4 saw enough Green Lantern teases to get fan hopes up, but will Season 5 do the same? The latest addition features a surprising personal connection to Hal Jordan, as Carly Pope joins Season 5 as a Coast City reporter.
In Cinemautopsy, we look back at a recent, high-profile failure and asks a simple question: What the hell happened? In this installment... a long-running superhero. The megastar lead of another wildly popular comic-book movie. A massive sci-fi epic with an all-star cast. The guy who reinvented James Bond twice. The guy who went on to launch DC’s TV empire. What could possibly go wrong?
The new Big Bad of the DC Comics Universe is Zack Snyder.
We’re just hours away from learning how Patrick J. Adams’ mystery DC hero will take us into Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, but those speculating the figure could be an early (and thus unrestricted) identity of Green Lantern are in for a blackest night. Not only do executive producers debunk the Alan Scott rumor, but Green Lantern remains off the table for TV outings.
NBC’s half-baked DC comedy Powerless won’t officially make its impact until sometime at midseason, but the full trailer managed to make its way online ahead of schedule. Get it while it’s hot, as DC namedrops galore rain down on the superhero insurance comedy!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will really set the stage for Warner Bros.’ slate of DC superhero movies, which includes solo outings for Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg, along with two Justice League movies. And at the far end of that schedule is a new Green Lantern film, tentatively arriving in 2020. Of all of WB’s new DC movie heroes, Green Lantern is the only one we won’t meet anytime soon, but if you’ve been wondering when to expect his arrival, we may have an answer.
The Flash’s first trip to Earth-2 promised easter eggs galore, and DC delivered an entire multiverse’s worth! Not only did CBS’ Supergirl make her first official crossover of sorts, but tonight’s trippy Flash also teased our first look at Legends’ Jonah Hex and Connor Hawke, another familiar Flash, and near of the entire damn Justice League!
We’d already known The Flash would use its Earth-2 connections to return Robbie Amell to the role of Ronnie Raymond, former Firestorm host, but it seems the character’s parallel universe name may carry some major DC weight. Meet “Deathstorm,” as The Flash namedrops a Green Lantern baddie for Robbie Amell’s return!
