A Rumored New Lantern and A Star Director For 'Batman': Don't You Forget About DC

Keep in mind, these are both rumors from the DC cinematic realm. First, Chris Pine might be the new Green Lantern.


However, this doesn’t mean that someone else won’t wear a power ring in Justice League or even the rebooted Green Lantern flick. Collider seems to think that we will get Pine as Hal Jordan and then someone else as Lantern John Stewart. Tyrese and Common were supposedly up for the Stewart role, but Common is another character in Suicide Squad.


Batman will be getting another standalone movie in 2018. Allegedly. The star will be Ben Affleck and the director will be…Ben Affleck. At least, that’s the rumor. The flick will be called The Batman and Chris Terrio is writing it. Terrio appears to be writing most of the DC movies, with Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and both Justice League movies erupting from his brain and onto the page.


So I hope Terrio doesn’t blow it.
