This isn't the first time that Warner Bros has eyed to relook at Green Lantern. Back in 2014, WB announced a Green Lantern Corps movie for the first time and was scheduled to release on July 24, 2020. However, given that the talks are still ongoing, it doesn't seem like a Green Lantern movie will be out as per the previously set date. Meanwhile, WB is busy with The Batman. Matt Reeves movie based on the Cape Crusader sees Robert Pattinson play the Batman while Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, and Paul Dano are other cast members in the movie. The Batman is going to hit theatres on June 25, 2021.
