    John is moot since he isn't in this anyway, but his is Fatality who can exist fine without being a Star Sapphire. But I think it would be in John's best interest to stop referencing the overplayed Xanshi stuff anyway.
    It doesn't need Carol. They can pull from any of the other existing Star Sapphires. Dela Pharon and Nol-Anj if they need villainous Star Sapphires. Being a corps, it is bigger than a single character.

    Which is seriously lame. It's hard to take the "Hal is useless and boring and any other GL can be used in his place" comments seriously when they do stuff like this.

    Either have John develop his own dynamic with Sinestro or don't bother. It kind of undermines any attempt to make John stand on his own as a character.

    They should use them. I don't know how much of a draw the Sapphires will be without Carol (we haven't gotten a lot of use out of them in the comics since soon after Johns left, and Carol showed up in GL:TAS) but this show is already using all the secondary Earth GLs over the main ones we'd expect, so who knows?

    If Carol shows up as Star Sapphire with nary a mention or allusion to Hal and she's like Simon's boss or whatever, I'm calling serious BS all over that.

    With Guy as one of the main GL's, will we see the legendary one-punch in live-action? Granted, Batman's not in it, but still...

    Further thinking about this, I think this might be a good thing. Hal and John have expectations and baggage. These other characters don't have that. I'm a comic fan and I only know Guy from this group. Alan Scott was changed but all I know about current Alan is that he is gay. Iono what else they changed or if he's actually a Corp member now. My only expectations would be for Sinestro and the Corp/Guardians conceptually. They can do whatever with the characters. Just make Guy be a dick and I won't care about any changes. Weird Kyle isn't front and center but iono maybe they have plans for him along with Hal and John. Kyle woulda been a clean slate for most people aswell.

    I'm kind of surprised they're still using Sinestro unless one of the GL's on the show get his relationship to Hal.

    Maybe he's still a Green Lantern at this point and they will cover his downfall?

    Could be. I'm wondering who the Hal in this scenario ends up being though unless they don't show it and that's saved for the movies.

    Green Lantern Will Be Written Like a TV Show, But Produced Like a Movie, Says Guggenheim.

    So I expect something along the lines of Star Trek Discovery and less like a CW show. Ironically even though it likely won’t look like a low-budget CW show like Supergirl or Flash. Ironically, it’s likely given the fact it’s got the same writers as those aforementioned shows doing all the episodes, it will likely be written like a CW show.

    That’s not a tremendous vote of confidence in the quality of your product for me. Micheal Bay Transformer movies look good, but that still doesn’t mean they’re actually good movies. Getting the dude who did Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter as your showrunner doesn’t inspire much help inspire much confidence.
