#ReleaseTheGreenLanternScene is now all the rage as DC fans demand to see Wayne T. Carr in a scene Warner Bros. directed by Zack Snyder in the film. It’s no secret that the 2017 production was heavily criticized Justice League was problematic at best, and now we’ve learned that even Justice League by Zack Snyder also had a production drama. Zack Snyder picked Wayne T. Carr as John Stewart in his original vision for the film, but the beloved Lantern is nowhere in the final cut. Fans have been clamoring for a glimpse of the movie scene, and Carr has finally let go.
Earlier today, Wayne T. Carr shared on Twitter a never-before-seen glimpse of his Green Lantern costume (albeit a pre-CGI version). The photo gives DC fans an idea of what he might have looked like as a classic superhero, and it’s safe to say he certainly looks the part. As for being cut from the film, Carr shared her disappointment as well as her gratitude, stating on an episode of LightCast what follows.
“When I saw the full vision, I went through the trip like everyone else went through the trip. Towards the end, I realized, ‘Ugh. I’m not part of that. Darn. The thing that goes through the trip. Warmed my heart was Once all the concept art and everything that started falling, it’s just fan love, man. Like, I wasn’t even in the movie, and I’m just getting positive feedback from people and support. It’s super crazy. It’s absolutely crazy, but I love it. “
The timing of Carr’s post is interesting because a day earlier Deadline reported that Finn Wittrock was cast as Guy Gardner in the upcoming HBO Max. The Green Lantern series. Wittrock has been announced as the main character, which is odd given Guy Gardner’s relatively unfamiliar status as opposed to lanterns like John Stewart, Hal Jordan, and Kyle Rayner. It is currently unknown whether Wayne T. Carr or his character Stewart will appear in the series.
As for Zack Snyder, the decision to cut John Stewart from his film was not his but rather that of Warner Bros. Indiewire.com reported that Snyder had almost quit the entire movie because of some studio decisions. He said this.
“And then the studio told me that I wasn’t allowed to shoot anything. That there wouldn’t be any movies of any kind. During production, it was a sure thing. which they insisted on. And I still shot stuff, of course, in my Yard. And one of the things I shot was the green lantern scene. “
Instead of the Green Lantern appearing in the film, however, Harry Lennix’s Martian Manhunter was the replacement character. It’s interesting to hear some of the behind-the-scenes stories from Justice League by Zack Snyder because it shows how much the studio’s involvement really was. Even after Snyder had completely remade his movie, he was still unable to provide fans with his full vision. Although Wayne T. Carr’s role has been cut, however, he could still make appearances in future DC projects if Snyder is given the green light to continue his work in the franchise. While currently unlikely, crazier things have happened. Justice League by Zack Snyder is now available to stream on HBO Max.
