The DCEU has been like a rollercoaster ride over the last few months, resulting in a bevy of activity around solo tentpoles like Aquaman and The Flash. Now the latest rumor surrounds the further out Green Lantern Corps and the role of director.
According to reporter Jeff Sneider (Meet The Movie Press), he says "I'm hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself." Sneider also points out that other screenwriters have or are making this transitioin, including Simon Kinberg (rumored to be directing the next X-Men film) and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission Impossible franchise). Goyer has been entrenched in the DCEU since its inception and is already writing the Green Lantern Corps film along with Justin Rhodes.
The film is still in the development phase, but there are few better versed with the vision of the DCEU than Goyer. Still, there will be plenty of fans who would rather have someone a bit more experienced in the director's role take on the task of translating Green Lantern to film, a project which currently has a 3.45 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation Rankings.

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
