Green Lantern reboot gets an official title

Amid the various bells and whistles of Warner Bros.’ official Comic-Con panel came some welcome news concerning the forthcoming Green Lantern reboot, with the new film now officially titled Green Lantern Corps.

That title refers to the intergalactic peacekeeping body from the comics, glimpsed to a certain extent in the 2011 film. No further details were confirmed, although that title would suggest we’ll be skipping the origin story this time around and diving straight into the space-set action.

Both Chris Pine and Tyrese have been strongly linked to the role of Green Lantern over recent weeks, although Warner declined the opportunity to shed any more light on the casting process. The new film is expected to arrive in 2020, although an official release date has yet to be confirmed.
