Speaking to Collider at San Diego Comic-Con, Geoff Johns discussed the currently in-development Green Lantern Corps movie, on which he’s serving as writer and producer. One of the topics covered was lessons learned from the poorly received 2011 Green Lantern film starring Ryan Reynolds.
“Well I think you look at everything that worked and didn’t work on anything. Like revamping a character, reintroducing a character I’ve done it a lot. The creative viewpoint and the way into the character and rebooting it and changing it and introducing it is informed by everything. It’s informed by comics, 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.”
Johns also revealed that GLC technically hasn’t been greenlit for production yet and that he’s writing the script with an eye toward changing that.
“Right now, look, I’m just writing a script and hopefully this script gets into a place where Warner Bros. and Walter [Hamada, President of DC Films] and everybody is really excited about it, and when we get that right then we’ll move ahead on the project. But we gotta get it right.”
