Part six of Volume I of my DC Cinematic Universe “rebirth” series.
In the furthest depths of space, the Green Lantern Corps serve as an interstellar law enforcement agency under the command of the Guardians of the Universe. One of the officers of this agency, by the name of Abin Sur, is incapacitated while transporting the criminal Atrocitus, and crash lands on Earth while Atrocitus escapes. As he dies, Abin Sur sends his ring to search for a worthy predecessor: a man without fear.
That man is Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot working for Ferris Aircraft, led by CEO Carol Ferris. Hal is transported to Abin Sur's location and is named the Green Lantern of Earth and its surrounding space. As Hal grows accustomed to his powers on Earth, and trains with his fellow Lanterns on the planet Oa, Atrocitus grows stronger, and forces Hal to put his new powers to use alongside his fellow Lanterns.
The film would be very reminiscent of a buddy cop movie with a sci-fi twist (the other cop being Sinestro). The 2011 movie seemed to struggle with deciding whether it wanted to be set on Earth or in space: this movie would find a good mix of scenes set on Earth, used to establish Hal and Carol Ferris' relationship, and space, to establish the Lanterns and Oa. The plot would be more streamlined too, and would only have one main antagonist to focus on.
Main inspirations: “Green Lantern Secret Origin”.
Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action.
