How Green Lantern: Beware My Power Makes DC Movie History

While most people's attention is turned onto what DC is doing on the live-action side of things, there's an entire animated DC timeline that's very much worth giving its due. Some of the more recent additions to this canon include "Catwoman: Hunted" and "Injustice," which both effectively stand on their own as singular DC stories. However, the DC animated universe is currently in the midst of assembling its own interconnected universe in the aftermath of "Justice League: Apokolips War," which functioned as a hard reset of this particular continuity. 

"Superman: Man of Tomorrow" began what's known as the "Tomorrowverse," which encapsulates a foundation for a new Justice League to form. We already have our latest cartoon versions of Superman and Batman, and it appears we're about to get our introduction to John Stewart with "Green Lantern: Beware My Power." And it marks a significant milestone within the animated timeline with an important first. 

It marks John Stewart's first time headlining his own feature film

A trailer showcases the upcoming film, and it looks like another action-packed adventure. Audiences will get to see John Stewart accept the mantle of Green Lantern, and when he shows up at the Justice League Watchtower for the first time, it doesn't look like a particularly pleasant interaction. He's met with confrontation from some of the other members, who quickly want to know what he's doing there. 

Undoubtedly, John Stewart will team up with the Justice League to stop a much larger threat, namely Sinestro. The film stars Aldis Hodge as John, but that won't even be his only DC role this year. Hodge is slated to appear as Hawkman in the forthcoming "Black Adam," and given his performances in the likes of "One Night in Miami" and "City on a Hill," it makes sense why he would be so in demand.

John Stewart has been a popular but often-ignored member of the Green Lantern Corps. for a while now. Even though Hal Jordan got the live-action treatment, most will remember John for his time on the "Justice League" and "Justice League Unlimited" cartoons in the 2000s. Many fans will likely line up to check out the newest Green Lantern movie to see the character further get his due. 

"Green Lantern: Beware My Power" comes out on July 26.
