The DC film slate always seems to be in a state of flux, especially in the wake of Justice League's so-so performance, but that doesn't mean the studio is overhauling everything. Case in point: Things are still looking bright for Green Lantern fans.

IGN reports David Goyer has confirmed the Green Lantern Corps film is "still in the works" during an interview at the 2018 Television Critics Association press tour. "I don't know. Who knows, especially with what's currently going on with the DC universe? There's obviously a whole recalibration happening with that right now,” Goyer said, according to IGN. The Green Lantern movie was first teased at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014. Initially, the reboot was billed as a buddy cop movie and compared to Lethal Weapon.

Warner Bros. recently hired Roy Lee to head the DC Films' production division shortly after the Justice League film hit theaters. It's still unclear how the other DC films will be affected by the recalibration Goyer addressed. The only DC movie that’s hitting theaters in 2018 is Aquaman, so it’s a real sink-or-swim situation for the DCEU. Whatever form that shift takes, Warner Bros. is not short on options. The studio has a laundry list of DC projects in various stages of development, from Flashpoint to Shazam! to Batgirl and Gotham City Sirens.
