New Green Lantern Rumored To Be Older & Darker; Not In Justice League Movie

A new rumor has hit the net this week surrounding the rebooted Green Lantern for DC's Justice League slate of films.

Warner Bros. did announce a new Green Lantern movie for 2020, but the rumor is stating that Green Lantern won't be in the 2017 Justice League movie.

In addition, the rumor has it that Zack Snyder is going to use a Green Lantern that is 45 to 55 years old and is described as a broken soldier with a darker personality. It's also said Oa is "doomed."

The rumor comes from the website who seems to say that the rumor has been online for a while.

It's the first I've heard of it.

With WB's 2011 Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds considered a flop, is it possible they are going to keep Green Lantern out of the Justice League movie and possibly wait for Justice League Part 2 in 2019 to introduce the new Hal Jordan, with the new Green Lantern movie to follow in 2020?

At one point in the comics, Hal Jordan was shown to be aged, with grey hair, which initially was a result of actual aging in the comic book, but Geoff Johns has since retconned that away explaining the grey hair as a result of Parallax.
