Acknowledging the missteps in the 2011 Green Lantern film, Silverman said the characters deserve the same reverence as the trinity, but asked for patience. “I guess I can say to the Green Lantern fans: if they can be patient with us, I think they’ll be really happy,” he said.

The Green Lantern concept will receive its own spotlight in 2020 with Green Lantern Corps.
