The rumor mill is running rampant with the idea that George Miller (director of Happy Feet, Happy Feet 2 and the Mad Max franchise, both old and new) will be directing the new Green Lantern Corps movies. If you haven’t heard, the new Green Lantern Corps movie was announced in 2015 in the infamous San Diego Comic Con and is supposed to be released in 2020. Also, the movie is supposed to feature 3 Earth lanterns (Hence, the Corps) and will be the 3 most well known. Although the actors playing the characters are yet to be named, or even thought of, a big name like George Miller is bound to set the bar high considering the original Green Lantern movie was such a flop.
For those of you who have seen Mad Max, and the latest installment Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) we know that George Miller is more than capable of taking the project on and knocking it out of the park. Miller is no stranger to DC Films, in fact there were aspirations for a Justice League film. However, the plans for that film ultimately were thrown away. I have faith that this time around, things will be different and that the Green Lantern will have his story told properly!
