LanternCast Episode #220 – The Collaborative Conway Crossover Caper!

Gerry Conway and the concern surrounding creator equity in comics have recently been in the news.

We here at the LanternCast put our own unique stamp on it by covering two great issues written by the man himself! What did we think? How much do we enjoy Conways take on Green Lantern? What do crazy crabs have to do with anything? Listen in and find out! Be sure to chime in on our voice-mail at 708-LANTERN!

GERRY CONWAY’S ORIGINAL POSTS:

Who created Caitlin Snow on #TheFlash? According to @DCComics, nobody

Two out of three of these characters were created by no one, according to DC Entertainment.

Is Felicity Smoak on #Arrow worth more than Caitlin Snow on #TheFlash?

A public apology to Geoff Johns, Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, and Larry Ganem.

RUMOR ROUNDUP: John Stewart “LEAD” in 2020 Green Lantern Movie?

It is being reported currently by ComicBook.com and the PopCorn Talk youtube channel that John Stewart is being cast in the upcoming DC Comics/Warner Bros ‘Green Lantern’ movie (tentative release of 2020). While the ComicBook.com headline states that John Stewart is the “lead” in the feature, it seems like this is, as yet, not the case. The rumor is that they’re looking to “cast” John Stewart, not that they’re looking to “cast John Stewart as the LEAD”.

 

At this point, all of this is RUMOR. So the whole thing could prove to be false or 100% true, lead character and all.

 

The source video is posted below for those interested (Green Lantern talk starts at 21:35):
