Both Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill continue to tease Green Lantern.

‘Green Lantern Corps’ May Be Directed by David S. Goyer
Quote:
Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment already have Aquaman shooting this year, taking the December release date vacated by Avatar 2. But they also hope to have another piece of the DC Expanded Universe in front of cameras before the end of the year. One of the less likely options was Green Lantern Corps, a film that doesn’t have a director (just like The Flash), but there may be one waiting in the wings.

A new rumor indicates that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David S. Goyer, who is co-writing Green Lantern Corps with Justin Rhodes, might end up directing Green Lantern Corps.

The Tracking Board reporter Jeff Sneider mentioned the Green Lantern Corps director possibility during a recent episode of Meet the Movie Press, the podcast that he co-hosts each week. Here’s what Sneider had to say on the show:

“I’m hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself. When you look at screenwriters that are taking the plunge and directing these movies themselves, we saw rumors last month that Simon Kinberg was going to direct the next X-Men movie. David Goyer is responsible for this entire DC Universe, he wrote Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. He wrote Man of Steel, he is the architect, if you will. He is writing and producing Green Lantern Corps, so it’s just very well, what I have heard, one of those situations where he could be like ‘Listen, I think I may be the best guy for the job, nobody knows this like I do.'”

Though Goyer certainly has the right experience in the DC Expanded Universe, viewers who didn’t like Man of Steel or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might not be happy with him directing Green Lantern Corps. Of course, that depends on whether you blame him or Zack Snyder for the direction that the DC Expanded Universe is taking.

Either way, Goyer’s directing abilities leave something to be desired. Besides directing the poorly received horror thrillers The Unborn and The Invisible, he was also at the helm of Blade Trinity, widely regarded as being the worst in the franchise. Otherwise, more recently he’s stuck to television by directing a couple episodes of Flashforward and Da Vinci’s Demons. Still, you can’t deny that his work as a comic book movie writer and producer in recent years does give him a little more credibility.

For now, consider this a rumor. But as Warner Bros. Pictures continues to sort out their motion picture slate for the DC Expanded Universe, we’ll hopefully get some clarification on what’s going on with Green Lantern Corps soon.

Well I guess that's a "shoulder injury," but why not call it what it is? A torn pectoral.

This is not exciting or inspiring news at all. It's actually more worrisome than anything else considering the directing track record by Goyer laid in the article.

We'll see. This is still rumor mill stuff.

At this point, I've learned to ignore what he says on a podcast and only care about the shit that makes it to the website that pays him. lol

There is nothing new here just the 'supposed' treatment for the GLC movie that has been claimed to be false. I do NOT want Hal to be Hank Pym'd. I don't mind Hal being in Ben Affleck's age range if that is who is portraying Bruce but if they are going the Sam Elliot grizzled veteran, Road House direction, then I will actively root for this version of the DCEU's demise. I want no part of a film universe where Hal is older than my mental image of Alan Scott just to put over some younger GL in the JLA.

I would prefer Hal in his thirties and John in his late 20s.

+1. The treatment of Hank Pym and the Wasp in the Marvel cinematic universe pretty much damned them from ever being relevant in the comics again. Hal needs to be late 20's to mid-30's tops in a new film.

Pym was turned into Ultron lite and became a villain in the comics before being seemingly killed. Wasp has been dead awhile and was recently replaced... then for no reason at all came back to life. And I think Lang's daughter switched up from Stature to basically a new version of Stinger from MC2 as well.

If they made Hal an even older guy in the comics to push the other GL's in the front it would hurt the group as a whole. He's already the big gun, doesn't need to be significantly older.

Making him older to push John or another GL might work for a single film, but it wouldn't be a franchise builder like sticking to the source material would offer. Hal can still be older, he just doesn't need to be that old when they introduce John. And he doesn't need to be a senior citizen when other Earth GL's show up like Kyle, Guy, and God forbid Baz and Cruz.

I just never think of Hal as a 40 something. I always like to think of him in his prime, late 20s early 30s. Now, an older actor may PLAY Hal, we just had a 30 year old playing the last teenage Spidey, and leading men hit their prime in their 40s in Hollywood. But the character himself shouldn't be older. Guy should be the same age as Hal, and John and Kyle should be in their late to mid 20s respectively.

I am totally sold on a buddy cop movie for GLC. I just hope WB doesn't go the older veteran route for either/both Hal and John. I want to feel like these guys have some vitality to them, and the actors playing them be young enough to do so for a few movies if they do well. I'd rather avoid a Roger Moore scenario where they were borderline age wise right out of the gate.

Early 30s is more realistic than 20s if he's a test pilot. Those guys have usually made their bones with several years of combat flying to prove and earn the right. [And no, Trey, I don't mean that point to open the discussion of whether he should be a test pilot any more.]

We've all heard the GLC movie described as "Lethal Weapon in space", but since the white guy is the older vet and you throw in aliens and sci-fi, it reminds me more of "Men in Black"... ("Men in Green?")

Maybe they should cast Brad Pitt as Hal - he's in his 50's and despite being world-famous, hasn't really been doing much other than getting a divorce. Maybe he'd be up for a big summer-movie payday... (he can certainly pull off "cocky test pilot.")
