John Stewart (Green Lantern Corps)
In June 2018, WB has handed the writing duties of Green Lantern Corps to Geoff Johns. Mr. Johns is an American comic book writer famous for his DC characters like Flash, Aquaman, Superman and Green Lantern. Mr. Johns was the President and Chief Creative Officer (CCO) of DC Entertainment since 2016. He has stepped down from the role of CCO to be on more on the creative side. It has been confirmed Hal Jordan and John Stewart will be the main characters in the Green Lantern Corps movie in July 24.
However, news of the movie has been slowed. For some reasons, I don’t think the movie will be out by that date. DC movies take longer than 1 year to make and market.
John Stewart first appeared in Green Lantern #87 (December 1971/January 1972) created by Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams. Neal wanted to substitute Green Lantern and wanted to have a Black Green Lantern considering the makeup of this population. John Stewart is the first Black DC superhero. His ring allows him to fly, create force field and construct objects.
