EXCLUSIVE: No Superman Cameo In ‘Green Lantern’ Movie, Says Director

On Friday, we were first to bring you the news that “Sherlock Holmes” actor Mark Strong was in talks to play Sinestro in the “Green Lantern” movie. Along with that exclusive scoop, director Martin Campbell also gave MTV News a list of characters from Green Lantern’s universe that would be appearing in the film.

And while we were on the subject, we had to ask about another high-profile DC character rumored to make a cameo.

“No, that won’t happen,” Campbell told MTV News when asked about the chances of Superman (or possibly Clark Kent) appearing in “Green Lantern” in some form.

Way back in December 2008, we brought you the first, exclusive report that a Superman cameo was being written into early drafts of the “Green Lantern” script, as revealed to MTV News by the film’s co-screenwriter Marc Guggenheim. In a follow-up interview conducted in July 2009, Guggenheim said the script was still in flux, and he couldn’t be sure if the Superman cameo would make the final cut.

Campbell’s comments would now seem to indicate that a meeting between Hal Jordan and Clark Kent was no longer in the mix for “Green Lantern” — and the same goes for a meeting with Bruce Wayne or any other DC heroes, too.

“None of the other DC characters will appear in the film,” said Campbell.

While that seems to rule out a “Hard-Traveling Heroes” team-up for Green Lantern and Green Arrow, anyone hoping for an appearance by Ch’p just might be in luck!
