[Movies] Warner Bros. Was Concerned When DC Comics Made Green Lantern Gay
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.03.2013

This certainly has worrying implications for anyone who has hopes for the Justice League will be faithful to the source material in any way. Writer James Robinson has revealed that after he made the "New 52" version of the current Green Lantern gay, Warner Bros. was worried that this would affect their movie Green Lantern franchise.

As you may recall or be aware of, Robinson chose to make the rebooted version of Alan Scott, the current person wearing the Lantern ring to protect Earth 2, gay when DC Comics rebooted their core continuity. Robinson told Comic Book Resources that while DC was supportive of the decision, Warner Bros. had some concerns about whether their potential film franchise--specifically, Ryan Reynolds' character of Hal Jordan--would have to or should be revealed as gay himself. Said Robinson, "Geoff (Johns) had to go in and explain that there were lots of Green Lanterns, and this was just one of them."

There have been rumors that Reynolds may or may not reprise the role in Justice League, which has a tentative release date of 2015 but may be pushed out due to the script being started fresh due to problems with Will Beall's initial take. Hopefully Warner Bros. can figure out the whole "multiple Green Lanterns" thing by then.
