Michael Green wasn't unprepared for the job of working on the script for Warner Bros. upcoming Green Lantern, having had previous experience as a part of the writing teams for Heroes and Smallville, and being the current writer on DC Comics Superman/Batman. Speaking to Newasarama, Green confirmed his work on the script and the fun he is having with it.
"I'm co-writing it with Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, the best people you could hope to get stuck in a room with for any length of time," Green said. "As for status, we're writing it now and having way too much fun doing it."
Green Lantern was created in 1940 by Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell. The modern-era Green Lantern, Hal Jordan was created by John Broome and Gil Kane in 1959. Hal Jordan is a second-generation test pilot who has been given a ring capable of channeling his willpower, and charged with defending a sector of the universe.
Early rumors suggest that the Green Lantern of the film will be Hal Jordan, and not John Stewart, who became familiar to viewers in the Justice League cartoon and who will in George Miller's Justice League of America film.
