Yesterday was a day that DC fans have been waiting months for with the airing of DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League, which not only gave us a batshit crazy Suicide Squad trailer, but also came with footage from 2017′s standalone Wonder Woman film, and updates on Cyborg, The Flash, and more. However, despite the release a full concept art image of the cinematic universe Justice League, news was slightly less exciting on the Green Lantern front.

Despite previously announcing a Green Lantern Corps film, not much news has come out from the project in the months since, and the character was mysteriously absent from the concept art released yesterday, leading many to wonder what the fate of the newest Green Lantern film might be?

Well, it looks like fans can rest easy, as Geoff Johns did confirm once and for all that the Green Lantern Corps will be making their way into the Justice League universe.

Check out the announcement segment below:

Unfortunately, no other details or announcements were made regarding the highly-anticipated project, although the segment itself does seem to highlight both Hal Jordan and John Stewart’s Green Lanterns the most, feeding into the rumors that the new film could introduce both versions of the beloved character onscreen, satisfying both groups of DC fans.

Warner Bros.’ previous Green Lantern film, led by Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds, is widely considered by the fans to be one of the biggest comic book movie misses in history, not only delivering an inconsistent tone for the character, but also cutting any possibilities of an explored Lantern universe short. Now, with the DC Cinematic Universe finally about to really begin this year with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, this could be the studio’s last shot at Green Lantern redemption.

Green Lantern Corps is set to hit theatres in 2020.
