‘Green Lantern Corp’ or reboot being written, Geoff Johns wants ‘to get it right’

Collider landed an interview with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns to explore the future of the DCCU, particularly the Green Lantern reboot movie, which has been called Green Lantern Corps.

When asked if he was looking to Warner Bros.’ previous Green Lantern movie for lessons-learned about what not to do, Johns said he’s looking at pretty much everything and is focused on completely revamping the character.

“Well I think you look at everything that worked and didn’t work on anything. Like revamping a character, reintroducing a character I’ve done it a lot. The creative viewpoint and the way into the character and rebooting it and changing it and introducing it is informed by everything. It’s informed by comics, both what works and what doesn’t work. I don’t wanna spoil any of the story there, but if people liked my run on Green Lantern, then hopefully they’ll like what I’m doing.”

Johns was chosen to help run DC Films alongside WB executive Jon Berg and says he’s currently writing the script, but the film is far from greenlit.

“Right now look I’m just writing a script and hopefully this script gets into a place where Warner Bros. and Walter [Hamada] and everybody is really excited about it, and when we get that right then we’ll move ahead on the project. But we gotta get it right.”

Collider asked about practical suits versus the CG versions used in the horrible Ryan Reynolds film.

“I look at what they did with those suits and—look I have so many opinions that I won’t say, but that’s really up to once we get a director. That’s such a down the line conversation with the director and costume designer. You think about it, but when I’m writing the story I’m not like worried about the practicality yet of the suit. In my head tangible is always cooler, an enhanced tangible suit is better. But it’s really gonna be about where we are with the director and everything else, and that’s a question [to be asked when] we get a great script and a great director and they wanna make the movie, then we’ll get there.”
