<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> GREEN LANTERN And The GREEN LANTERN CORPS Confirmed For JUSTICE LEAGUE

During tonight's DC Films special, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns confirmed not only Green Lantern for the Justice League film, but the entire Green Lantern Corps. Not only are Hal Jordan and John Stewart in play but Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner and Simon Baz as well!

To close out the DC Films special airing on The CW Kevin Smith asked Geoff Johns to reveal a world exclusive, to confirm the seventh member of the Justice League in the DCEU and end the show with a bang. Johns certainly didn't disappoint.  "We've been to these cities, we've been underwater, but there's one place we haven't been to: space.  But now we are. So the Green Lanterns and the Green Lantern Corps are coming to join the Justice League universe."  Kevin Smith followed with, "That's every kids dream, to see all those Justice League characters together, Green Lantern is a big part."

Green Lantern will be joining Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg in the upcoming Justice League.  However, he won't be coming alone.  Geoff Johns confirmed not just Green Lantern but the entire Green Lantern Corps.  The implication of his statement is that Justice League will have more than just one ring wielder.  Images of Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and Simon Baz (sorry Alan Scott fans) were displayed on screen, with Jordan and Stewart definitely being highlighted.  This resonates with previous rumors that the Green Lantern Corps movie would focus on both Jordan and Stewart. However, perhaps the other three Lanterns cameo or receive some sort of mention?  Prior to the standalone GL film,  when the Justice League forms on screen, will they have not one but five Green Lanterns?

Justice League Part One is confirmed for release in 2017. Part Two will follow in 2019.  A Green Lantern Corps film has also been confirmed for release in 2020.  However, the intergalactic guardians of space are now officially confirmed to make their DCEU debut a full 3 years before their standalone film.
