The information we had up until this point indicated that Hal Jordan, AKA the Green Lantern, would not have any part in the 2017 DC/Warner Bros release Justice League. He will not be joining Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman and the soon-to-be-resurrected Superman as a founding member of the iconic team. Many people were disappointed to hear that the emerald-clad hero would be AWOL.
However,there is some good news. The Wrap reports that it has unearthed some information saying, “A member of the Green Lantern Corps will be seen in Justice League in a key sequence”.
This is rather vague, and it doesn’t say who the Green Lantern will be. In the comics, there are over 7,000 members of the space-faring police force, led by the Guardians of the Universe. We may or may not see Hal Jordan but regardless, if this report is accurate, it will be fun to see how the Green Lanterns fit into the story.
Considering that Darkseid is involved—represented by Steppenwolf—it’s not hard to imagine that the Green Lantern Corps will be investigating. Possibly (and this is just a guess) we’ll see Abin Sur show up, to establish Hal for the sequel, or perhaps to set up the Green Lantern Corps movie of 2020.
Do you think we’ll see Hal Jordan in Justice League? Which Green Lantern would you want to see?
Justice League will debut in theaters on November 17, 2017.
