‘Weird sounding’ Green Lantern member set for Justice League movie?

February 24th, 2017 by Marc Comments

While it’s been widely speculated for some time that, despite no casting news yet, we would see a member of the Green Lantern Corp near the end of November’s Justice League movie release, we’ve now got another source claiming that yes it’s true… but not what- or who – you think.

On the latest Periscope Episode, Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto Gonzalez claims that he has it from a good source that the Corp will be represented in the movie but not by either of the two most likely candidates who are Hal Jordan or John Stewart.

Here’s what Gonzalez says: “There is a Green Lantern in Justice League. I forgot how to pronounce him. I forgot the name of the Green Lantern in Justice League, so we’ll see. Hey, maybe by that time they get to cast Hal Jordan and next we’ll throw him in there too who knows… it’s not Kilowog. It’s a funny sounding, I’ll give you a hint it’s a funny sounding name. I’m like okay, better not cast Tyrese. It is confirmed that Green Lantern, a Green Lantern will be in Justice League. I don’t want to give you the spoiler obviously, but yes, there is a Green Lantern.”

So a funny sounding Lantern? It’s not much to go by, given the name of many of the Corp, but it does give us food for thought, given that we were confident it would be Jordan of Stewart we’d see.

So, who do you think it is? Let us know what you all reckon…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
