  • DC Extended Universe:
    • An alien Green Lantern helped repel the first invasion of Earth by the Apokoliptian New God Steppenwolf several millennia before present-day and got killed by him in Justice League (2017).
    • In Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021), the same alien Green Lantern helped repel the invasion by Darkseid instead of Steppenwolf. There is more footage of him in this version, as well as a dead Kilowog in the Bad Future. Zack Snyder shot a post-credits scene that included a cameo from John Stewart played by Wayne T. Carr but Warner Bros invokedvetoed it.
    • A Green Lantern Corps film project is currently in invokedDevelopment Hell (which may or may not be this way because of the below HBO Max series).
