Goyer keen on Green Lantern film

David S Goyer has revealed he would like to do another Green Lantern film.

The screenwriter, who is currently working on Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel, admitted he is interested in bringing the Justice League member back to the big screen, following 2011's Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds in the lead role.

"I would love to do Green Lantern," he told Collider.

David, who co-wrote the screenplays for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel, said he enjoyed exploring different worlds such as Superman's home planet Krypton.

"I really wanted to showcase Krypton as a truly alien world. That was one of the things I wanted to do from the beginning when I got involved in the project," he said.

"At his heart, Superman's always been a science fiction story. I wanted to lean into that, and so did Chris, and so did Zack, so I was just glad we were able to."

The big-screen adaptation of Green Lantern, which also starred Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard and Mark Strong, wasn't a box office success when it was released and was panned by critics.

Meanwhile, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson denied he had been in talks with Warner Bros and DC Comics about playing Green Lantern on screen.

He tweeted: "Green Lantern (John Stewart) and Black Adam are my fav superheroes, but GL's already been made and stamped."

He previously told Comic Book Resources: "There's been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. I, like everyone here in the room, love superheroes. So there's been mutual interest with us for years, and we've been having ongoing discussions, myself and DC, for years about the right character, what the right character would be. It had to be right."
