GREEN LANTERN – Teaser Trailer (2025) Will Smith DC Studios New Series | Concept


It’s frankly shocking that the Green Lantern hasn’t gotten a truly stellar live-action adaptation yet. Of course, DC certainly tried with 2011’s Green Lantern, one of the most infamous comic book films of all time that really shouldn’t have been the disaster that it was. It had a fantastic action filmmaker in Casino Royale (2006) director Marin Campbell, an extremely talented cast led by future Deadpool Ryan Reynolds, and rich source material Alas, the movie is remembered as a critical and financial failure, with nearly everyone who was a part of the film’s production treating it as a practical joke in their careers. Since then, apart from a brief cameo from a Green Lantern Corps member in Justice League (2017), we haven’t seen the famous green ring appear in any other DC live-action project since the first film. Green Lantern has, however, found far more success in television, nearly all of them being animated like the legendary Justice League (2001-2004) series and the fan-favorite Green Lantern: The Animated Series (2011-2013). With the many wielders of the Green Lantern ring seemingly feeling much more comfortable on the small screen, it makes sense that new DC Studios CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran have opted to use the serialized television format to bring the Green Lanterns into their new DC Universe. Simply titled Lanterns, the plural use of the word is deliberate as the show will star not one, but two heroes who share the title of Green Lantern.
