Back in the day can 2010-2011 be considered back in the day? there was not a bigger cheerleader for WBs GREEN LANTERN movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

I thought and I told everyone (including the fine folks at Warner Bros.) that it was going to be WB/DCs IRON MAN.

Hell, I bought my first DC Comics T-shirt that wasnt Batman or Superman-related and went to Wondercon in San Francisco in 2011 just to cover the GREEN LANTERN movie. AND THEN

GREEN LANTERN sucked. ANYWAY

DEADLINE.COM is reporting that David Goyer and Justin Rhodes will be writing the script for WBs GREEN LANTERN CORPS. Ill defer to the original report now

The new version is described as LETHAL WEAPON in space. The focus will be on two characters: Hal Jordan and John Stewart. The latter is an African American Marine sniper before he joined the Lantern Corps and the story very much focuses on his relationship with Jordan and the Corps.

Word.

Look, I know its NOT going to happen, but Id have NO problem if Ryan Reynolds returned at Hal Jordan (as he was the LEAST of the problems with that movie). But due to his success with DEADPOOL (which was great!) and all and WB probably wanting to distance themselves from that film that ship has likely sailed. AND

Before anyone starts to bitch about David Goyer co-writing the script, shut the heck up.

Look, while Ive had personal (and admittedly petty) issues with Mr. Goyer, I have the utmost respect for him. I totally believe that hes yet to get the due and props he deserves for his contributions to THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY. Also, while I didnt care much for BATMAN v SUPERMAN, I did like MAN OF STEEL which Mr. Goyer wrote.

So what do y'all think? Can the Green Lantern property get a second chance with movie audiences? Post your thoughts in the comments section below!
