After a series of Earth-bound adventures, it seems DC once again has decided to look the stars. We've known for quite some time that a Green Lantern Corps movie has been in development, but few details have come forward about the project -- until now. Earlier this week DC announced that Green Lantern Corps (which is currently slated to hit theaters on July 24, 2020) would focus on the dynamic between Hal Jordan and John Stewart, and play out like a buddy cop movie set in outer space.

As excited as we are about this development, it's impossible not to remember the 2011 version of Green Lantern that completely missed the mark. To help figure out what it takes to craft a decent Green Lantern movie, we have compiled a list of vital elements that the DCEU needs to factor into Green Lantern Corps' story. Without further delay, let's get the ball rolling with the two heroes who will ground the entire affair.

Explore The Differences Between Hal and John

Let's get one of the most fundamental aspects of the Green Lantern mythos out of the way right off the bat. Green Lantern is a mantle and not a single hero. It has been passed down from a wide variety of individuals over the years, and each member of the Corps has brought something new to the equation. Green Lantern Corps should lean into that idea by truly highlighting the key differences between Hal Jordan and John Stewart. If this movie wants to feel like Lethal Weapon in outer space, then it shouldn't be afraid to play up Hal's cocky, maverick sensibilities, and starkly contrast them with John Stewart's gruff, no-nonsense demeanor. Half the fun of watching a story like this is following two diametrically opposed individuals as they learn to work within each other's personalities and skill sets, which means a "one size fits all" approach to Hal and John simply won't work.
