Nevertheless, Marc Guggenheim is always dropping a few interesting tidbits when he talks about the Lantern script. The MTV Splash Page was the latest to catch up with him, and he tried to put worried fans to rest by clarifying just what his latest script revisions were. "It's basically the exercise of changing the movie from being just a script that people are reading to being a script that people will actually shoot, perform and produce." He stressed again to pay no attention to casting rumors, even when they're as ruggedly handsome and popular as Bradley Cooper.
But here's the part you Lantern fans will find the most interesting. Guggenheim wouldn't comment on which faces of the Green Lantern Corps will appear in the film, but you will see familiar ones. "One of our rules has been: 'Don't create a new Lantern when a pre-existing one from the comic books would work just as well. There's only one Lantern who we've decided to completely create from scratch, but there's a very specific reason why we've made that decision." Speculate away, my friends, and start those Kilowog petitions now.
