    I guess the green lantern show will layout the foundation for a future film with Hal Jordan and John Stewart

    Originally, yes, but that version of the film fell apart when Tom Cruise passed on playing Hal. Who knows what the current take on the GL movie will be. All we know for certain is that Warner Bros. didn't want Zack Snyder to use John Stewart because they had already plans for him.

    I can't imagine that WB is going to not have John be the main thrust of the next GL movie, regardless of whether Hal is there next to him or not.

    That was the plan during the Geoff Johns-run DC Films, but that may not necessarily be the plan now.

    Well, Geoff Johns is still attached as a writer to the movie and he is an executive producer on the show. We know that the tv show and movie are connected. Hal Jordan and John Stewart are the most famous and popular lanterns. So it's possible they might show up in the future along with Kyle Rayner. It's clear since we don't have an update on the movie that they are still working on the script.

    I've never seen anything to indicate Geoff Johns was the one who tried to have John killed. Especially when Dan Didio had a well known hatred of most of the legacy characters not created under his tenure.

    Yeah wasnít Didio wanting to kill John the reason Joshua Hale Fialkov dropped off the green lantern corps book before his first issue?

    Didio was the guy who was responsible, Fialkov said it was editorial who was putting pressure on him to do it. If Johns wanted to kill Stewart he couldíve easily done it in an event, no need to make another writer do it. Regardless Johns has no control over the GLC film, I suspect theyíll bring in a new scriptwriter for whatever director they get, although the basic plot of the Johns pitch will probably remain, just centered around John as the main protagonist.

    I just hope to God itís not an adaption of Xanshi blowing up.
    Well to be honest, my confidence has been raised before the HBO Max GLC announcement. I've been told some time ago that Geoff Johns doesn't have the power to make the final decisions on who gets to have a bigger role in the GLC movie and how WB can still shut down or make changes to his script.

    The thing is that Greg Berlanti has already said years back that John Stewart wasn't gonna be in the show, because WB already has plans for him. I don't think it had anything for them not wanting to use John Stewart, but that they weren't allowed to. I don't think Geoff Johns had anything to do with John being the exception. And also, he's a huge Hal fan. You don't think he would've use Hal Jordan in the HBO Max show if he had the chance?

    Well it's been said that the editorial wanted to kill him off. I don't think Geoff Johns has called the shot to kill off John Stewart, but I don't think he would've mind, either. Around that time, Simon Baz was still a very new character and he already had plans to create another GL, which was Jessica. And also he didn't defend John Stewart at all (considering he's a huge GL fan), while the TPTB has did when the rumors blew up.

    So, was Cruz and Baz created to starve off the backlash against John Stewart's death? "We gave you a latino GL and a muslim GL, quit your complaining about less diversity".

    John being the only minority character that didn’t do anything for years didn’t look good. Especially being one of the most popular black DC characters. I doubt editorial would’ve made such suggestions if Simon Baz wasn’t created. I think Geoff John’s created those characters for his own benefit no doubt, but I’m sure it crossed their minds that it would’ve soften the accusations of DC not being diverse enough with a creation of a new diverse green lantern character if John was killed off. But the rumor backlash was bigger than what they expected I’m sure.

    He is not stupid, he knew that there would have been a big backlash so might as well throw another writer under the bus.

    True...but it was as if they wanted to use diversity as the reason to kill off Stewart.

    Hey, look we have 2 new diverse human GLs so we don't need John Stewart anymore yadda yadda nyeh!
