EXCLUSIVE: Krona to Make an Appearance in Green Lantern Movie
The Oan scientist whose actions caused the creation of the DC Comics Multiverse will be introduced to general audiences in Martin Campbell's live action Green Lantern film.
Another day, another Green Lantern filming report. The cast and crew of DC's next superhero tentpole franchise, Green Lantern, will be filming in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana, tonight. Several streets will be completely closed off to allow room for an Earth-based scene involving the fear entity Parallax and Krona. Longtime readers of DC comics know who Krona is; but for those of you a bit unfamiliar, here is a brief description:
Born on Maltus, Krona is an Oan scientist who became obsessed with observing the origins of the universe itself, despite an ancient legend that said discovering that secret would cause a great calamity. Krona constructs a machine that pierces the temporal barrier and views the beginnings of time itself. Krona catches a glimpse of the hand of creation depositing the speck that would become the entire cosmos. His machine explodes at that instant, and the universe is shattered causing the creation of the Multiverse as the universe replicates into an infinite number of parallel universes. At this same moment, the Anti-Matter Universe is created, unleashing evil into the cosmos; thus, the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor are born. As punishment for this act, Krona is transformed into pure energy by his fellow Oans and is sent to forever wander the cosmos. Krona's actions are what caused the Oans to become the Guardians of the Universe.
The exact role Krona will play in Green Lantern is still uncertain. Could this be another clue that DC is secretly planning to conjoin their superhero properties into one film universe? Or is this their way of explaining all the different incarnations of their film characters?
