Green Lantern Corps will join the DC Cinematic Universe in 2020. It will feature two versions of the popular comic book character — Hal Jordan and John Stewart. John Stewart, not Jon Stewart.

This won’t be the first time DC has attempted to showcase Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds starred as Jordan in the 2011 flop, and director George Miller wanted to include John Stewart in his ill-fated Justice League movie.

Yeah, I would love [to]. That would be an honor to play John Stewart.”
