Geoff Johns, after completing the event series Doomsday Clock, has confirmed that updates on future Green Lantern projects are coming.
In a recent interview with Newsarama, Johns spoke about his upcoming projects, and hinted at details for a Green Lantern project “outside [of] comics”.
“It’s a really exciting year to have Doomsday Clock finished up,” Johns explained. “I’m doing more comics. Stargirl trailer’s out. Wonder Woman’s on its way. And a lot of work with Green Lantern outside comics that hopefully you’ll hear about soon.”
There are a few possibilities for what Johns is referencing, including the long-gestating Green Lantern Corps movie. The script, which is being penned by Johns, was previously reported to be finished up by the end of this year.
“You look at everything that worked and didn’t work, on anything,” Geoff Johns, who is penning the most recent version of the Green Lantern Corps script, explained last year. “Like revamping a character, reintroducing a character, I’ve done it a lot. The creative kind of viewpoint and way into the character and rebooting and changing it and reintroducing it, is informed by everything. It’s informed by comics and both what works and what doesn’t work. I don’t wanna spoil any of the story there, but if people liked my run on Green Lantern, then hopefully they’ll like what I’m doing.”
In addition, Greg Berlanti is working on a Green Lantern series for HBO Max. It is unclear if it will be connected to the Arrowverse, but it is not replacing the planned film. Geoff Johns is also involved with this series.
