The film was intended to launch the DC Comics cinematic universe, a direct counterpart to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and more specifically to ''Film/IronMan''.

Having finally gotten rolling, the Film/DCExtendedUniverse is slated to give Green Lantern another shot at a standalone title - ''Green Lantern Corps'' - in 2020 (which in all probability will include at least Hal Jordan and John Stewart), but there are rumors that the character will appear earlier on in ''Justice League''. The solo film is slated to be an ensemble of films, with actors being sought to play Hal Jordan and John Stewart (among others).

The film was intended to launch the DC Comics cinematic universe, a direct counterpart to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and more specifically to ''Film/IronMan''. However, it was received poorly at the box office and by critics, leaving any sequels in limbo. 2013's ''Film/ManOfSteel'' starring Franchise/{{Superman}} was another shot at launching a shared DC movie-verse, and given the significantly better box office returns and the existence of ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', it appears to be significantly more successful.

** Hector Hammond is this to a lesser extent. Gaining his powers from the above EldritchAbomination, Hammond has the powers of MindOverMatter, {{Telepathy}} (and its subtrope TouchTelepathy), and has WellDoneSonGuy issues as well as a disturbing obsesson with Carol. As his powers grow, [[MyBrainIsBig so does his cranium]], and by the end of the movie he can't even produce enough body strength to prop himself up, requiring the use of a wheelchair [[spoiler: and Hal's ring, temporary as it was]].

* EldritchAbomination: Parallax.Parallax, a near-formless EmotionEater feeding on the fear of the countless worlds he invades. He could also be considered a OneManArmy due to the fact that he was able to consume on several worlds as well as take out Sinestro's group in one scene. He ultimately heads to Earth thanks to his dragon Hector Hammond, and tries to absorb Earth as well before Hal gains enough power to lead him away [[spoiler: and destroy him using the sun's gravitational pull, finally ending his threat]].
