Now before we begin I must remind you to take all rumors with a grain of salt. The rumor of Green Lantern appearing in the first Justice League film has been around since the early development of Batman v Superman. The original rumor stated that the Hal Jordan incarnation of GL would be making some kind of appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and everyone who saw the film noticed that he wasn’t anywhere to be found. Although, the Ultimate Cut of Dawn of Justice has yet to be released, and it’s been confirmed by director Zack Snyder that we will see new characters that were cut from the theatrical release.
There is a possible Easter Egg to the Emerald ring-bearer in the theater cut, so definitely be on the lookout for him when the cut releases this summer. What we do know so far, is that a Green Lantern will appear at some point in the DCEU before the Green Lantern Corps film in 2020, and that the movie will feature more than one Lantern. According to HitFix, WB showed off some concept art for Justice League at Cinema Con earlier this week, and that Green Lantern is seen multiple times. Check out what they said below.
“What’s notable, is that Warner Brothers also showed a great deal of concept art from the film and from Justice League, much of which featured Green Lantern. Davis said it was very unclear how long we’ll have to wait to see the Green Lantern, but he believes it’s possible that the character will show up in Justice League though it hasn’t been announced yet, as he was so heavily featured in the concept art.”
With that being said, The next question is: “If Green Lantern is in Justice League, who’s playing him?” Well, assuming that the Green Lantern shown in the concept art is Hal Jordan, it’s possible that Dan Amboyer could’ve been chosen to play the character. He’s been teasing GL for the past couple of months, and has even mentioned in an interview that we only see his name briefly in Batman v Superman. I’ve seen the film 6 times now and have not been able to spot him, so my money is on him making an appearance in the Ultimate Cut.
