During the San Diego Comic Con 2016, the latest trailer of the DC Extended Universe film, Justice League, was unveiled. However, what came as a surprise is the absence of the iconic superhero Green Lantern. Where is he?
When the trailer was released, of course a lot of fans were thrilled to see some of their favorite superheroes in one movie. Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg were the ones present in the clip, but the question is, where is Green Lantern?
According to some reports, the superhero also known as Hal Jordan will not be a part of the first Justice League (JL) movie. But on a good note, several posts noted that he will hit the big screens again in the coming years and might be recruited in the second JL film.
However, there are speculations that his absence is probably caused by the poor performance of the character?s 2011 movie, although there is no clear indication why Green Lantern was not included in the film. The previous Green Lantern movie may not have been able to impress the critics as well as the viewers, but it is still a fact that the superhero is one of the biggest names in DC Comics, so everyone would still expect him in the second movie of the Justice League.
If the superhero would appear in the next movie, Tyrese Gibson (Fast and Furious franchise) might be able to take the role according to previous reports. ?You know, there have been other artists, actors, and actresses who have put up images of them as a comic book character and ended up landing a role. So I was like, it?s worth giving it a shot,? said Gibson. When asked if he got a shot, he simply said, ?I do.?
Speaking of the first JL film, another character that is missing in the trailer is Superman. But there is really nothing to worry about because he will definitely appear in the upcoming film as revealed by director Zack Snyder. ?I don?t want to ruin it or anything, but you?ve got to have Superman,? said Snyder at the San Diego Comic Con.
It can be recalled that back at the end part of the Batman v Superman movie, Superman appeared to have died with Wonder Woman and Batman attending his funeral. Although fans and critics have already thought that he is not really dead, the latest statement from the director confirms that the superhero is indeed still alive.
The Justice League movie is going to hit the theaters on November 17, 2017. Share your thoughts about the absence of Green Lantern in the comment section below.
