In the alternate universe where politics is good and the books spell it “Berenstein” instead of “Berenstain,” a George Miller-directed Justice League movie exists and is beloved by all. Miller had plans to direct the superhero team-up about a decade ago and had a cast all lined up — which included Common as Green Lantern’s fellow Lantern John Stewart and Armie Hammer as Batman — but then the writers’ strike happened and Miller turned his sights to resurrecting Mad Max instead. Now that a Green Lantern Corps movie is happening and Warner Bros. is casting around for its two emerald-clad leads, Common just wants everyone to know that he’d still be down if anyone asked.

Now that the movie has found is writers, the next task is to cast it, and today we know who might be playing one of the main characters.

In brightest day, in blackest night, no movie rumor shall escape our sight. Next year’s Justice League has been sans Green Lantern so far, with no news for sure that the intergalactic crimefighter will appear in the movie, despite the fact that he’s historically been a hugely important member of the group. Today, it’s now rumored that the Green Lantern Corps will appear in the movie, but it might not be our familiar human member of the force.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will really set the stage for Warner Bros.’ slate of DC superhero movies, which includes solo outings for Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg, along with two Justice League movies.

We won't keep you guessing; RIP MukMuk, random fish Green Lantern who appears prominently on the cover for this week’s Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #1. You were too good for this galaxy, which never appreciated your ability to live both outside water and in the vacuum of space, with only minimal squelching noises apparent whenever you were lettered. Your five or six lines of dialogue total will be forever remembered.
