The Green Lantern - Justice League

The Green Lantern is a fictional male in the Justice League comic series who was played on screen by Ryan Reynolds. The Green Lantern is a group of people from across the universe who are sworn to protect the folk of the universe.

Unlike other characters such as The Flash or Superman, Green Lantern is more than one person. The most well known are Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart. Hal Jordan first appeared on screen in the Green Lantern film in 2011 played by Ryan Reynolds.

Green Lanterns also appeared in brief shots in the Justice League film that came out in 2017 but they were not part of the final battle against Steppenwolf. In the comics, the Green Lantern is a founding member of the Justice League. Ref: MoviePilot

The second Green Lantern film is due out in 2020 and while there might be a flashback reference to Hal Jordan, Jon Stewart is more than likely to be the lead Green Lantern Operative. Tyrese Gibson is actively hoping to land the role of Jon Stewart. Ref: CBR

In addition to Tyrese, it was rumoured that Idris Elba is also after the role. Idris is currently well known in comic books for his role as Heimdal in the Thor storyline. Ref: SyFy

The Green Lanterns wear green and are empowered by a ring that they wear. The ring is charged by a Green Lantern hence their name.
