There seems to be a batch of new film rumors hitting the web today involving Warner Bros and DC Entertainment. The belief is that these are leaking now because of plans to make the announcements at SDCC next month. The rumors involve Batman and Green Lantern.
The Green Lantern announcement is broken into two sources. First up Collider shared a story about an upcoming Green Lantern film that will focus on not one, but two members of the Corps: Hal Jordan and John Stewart. And there is even the possibility of Guy Gardner appearing. The idea being the Green Lantern franchise will focus on the Corps more than one ring bearer. And it will have nothing to do with the Ryan Reynolds film. They also hinted that one of the Lanterns will be announced at Comic-Con International.
From there we move over to Latino Review that picks up the story and runs with it. They are hearing that the previous rumors of Star Trek actor Chris Pine in talks to play Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman were off and that he was actually negotiating to play Hal Jordan. They claim that Warner Bros will introduce their full Justice League next month and that it will include 2 Green Lanters and they seem to think that Tyrese Gibson will be playing John Stewart.
Oh, and I mentioned a Batman rumor, this is from the same report… It is believed that there will be a new stand-alone film for the Caped Crusader coming sooner rather than later. Called The Batman, the film will be directed by Ben Affleck (as well as starring) and will be written by Chris Terrio who worked on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and is supposed to be writing the Justice League movies. The release date for the film is said to be November 2018.
Again, these are unconfirmed rumors, but there has been a big buzz building about Warner Bros plans for SDCC and there was the report that Marvel is skipping the show because of what WB / DC have planned… Either way we won’t have to wait too long to see if these are true.
