Today marks the day that the history of the DCEU was changed forever. What had been a lackluster set of movies became an incredible saga. Above all, it was thanks to the release of the Justice League Snyder Cut. With the anniversary of the Snyder Cut came some exciting news. Actor Wayne T. Carr has come forward with the concept art of a Green Lantern that didn’t make it into the Snyder Cut team. This was expected to be the first premiere of Green Lantern John Stewart, a fan favorite. And based on the art itself, it looks pretty solid.

The Green Lantern’s Light Was to Be Saved for Another Time
Those that have seen the Snyder Cut are aware that there is some Green Lantern presence. During a specific fight scene with Darkseid, a Green Lantern from many years ago can be seen. However, there was no confirmation of a modern-day Lantern anywhere in the movie. Incidentally, this is because WB wanted to save it for later. With a show in the pipeline, the studio felt revealing a Lantern early would be foolish. Unfortunately, that never came to be. Due to multiple drastic changes in the DCEU recently, it’s expected that the Green Lantern show may never see the light of day.
Just Another Reason to Restore What We Lost
Due to the initial failure of the Justice League movie, WB scrambled to make changes. As a result, many actors and storylines were cut entirely. However, the Snyder Cut anniversary has shown fans want more. Zack Snyder’s impressive interpretation of the Justice League and greater DCEU has gotten him plenty of accolades. And with a strong version of Green Lantern in tow, this support just keeps growing. The question from here is: should the Snyderverse be restored or not? Fans across the internet think so. Hopefully, WB will listen one day.
