Several days ago it was announced that Geoff Johns would be stepping down as DC Comics Chief Creative Office for a more hands on role in the company. The famous comic book writer will now get back to doing what he loves by helping produce more DC Comics shows and films as well as help write them. The first project he will write is Green Lantern Corps as well as produce.
The report mentions that original screenwriter David Goyer is out. So it is assumed that this will be a page 1 rewrite by Johns. And since Johns is known for writing one of the best Green Lantern arcs in comic book history (Blackest Night). This is sure to be exciting news for Green Lantern fans. Casting has already begun with the studio looking for younger actors to play John Stewart and older actors to play Hal Jordan.
Green Lantern Corps is slated to hit July 24th, 2020
