Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Green Lantern!

Cover dated in July of 1940 (meaning an on sale date of May-ish) ‘All-American Comics’ #16 featured the very first appearance of Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern. That means that it’s been a full 75 years since the concept of Green Lantern was created by Martin Nodell.

So we here at the LanternCast are coordinating a massive crossover with several of the dedicated Green Lantern related blogs, websites and podcasts across the internet. 

A few of the more notable participants in this crossover are as follows:

The Brightest Day, The Blackest Night

Flodo’s Page Blog

Green Bloggers Site

Blog of Oa

As we celebrate one of the greatest characters in modern American mythology, be sure to use the hashtag #GL75th across various social media sites to celebrate with us! If you’d like to join in the fun, please email us at! And while we’re at it, here are a few images you can use across the internet during the months of June and July (and the rest of the year if you feel up to it!).

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

It is being reported currently by 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 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):
