Warner Bros. has set
David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to write the script for a Green Lantern Corps movie, TheWrap has learned.
Goyer will produce while DC Entertainment President
Geoff Johns and Jon Berg will executive produce, based on a treatment by Goyer and Johns.
It remains unclear whether
Ryan Reynolds — who appeared in 2011’s “Green Lantern” alongside Peter Sarsgaard, Blake Lively, Mark Strong and Angela Bassett — will be a part of this film.
According to DC Comics lore, the Green Lantern Corps includes the green-clad, power-ring-wielding superhero as well as an intergalactic police force sent by the Guardians from the planet Oa.
