Geoff Johns may have stepped down as the head of the DCEU films, but that doesn't mean that he isn't involved at all with the franchise. He's apparently hard at work with the Green Lantern Corps script, and he gives us a small update on the status of the film.

Talking to Collider, Johns says:

"Right now look I'm just writing a script and hopefully this script gets into a place where Warner Bros. and Walter [Hamada] 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."


There have been numerous rumbling about Green Lantern Corps for a while, including a rumor that says WB is eyeing Mission Impossible: Fallout director Chris McQuarrie to take the helm. It's also been said that they want Tom Cruise to play their older Hal Jordan.

As far as the story goes, Johns promises that people who were fans of his run will like what he's doing with the movie. He says:

"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."

Hopefully Walter Hamada knows what to do with the DCEU now that he's been appointed head. I just hope they get Zack Snyder back to finish what he started with Man of Steel.

No release date has been set for Green Lantern Corps.
