When Warner Bros. announced its slate of DC movies through 2020, the distant big screen revival for the Green Lanterns led some fans to speculate the heroes would appear before Green Lantern Corps, potentially even in Justice League. Rumors have continued to point to the group getting an introduction later this year, as well as some further speculation coming from Armie Hammer and his playful comments regarding his possible role within the DCEU.
Hammer and Henry Cavill have added to the speculation that Justice League will feature an appearance by either Hal Jordan or John Stewart. If Hammer has already landed the role of Jordan, Warners clearly plans to keep it a secret for the time being. However, that hasn't stopped a fan from mocking up what his character poster for the team-up film would look like.
BossLogic has brought together the Hammer casting rumors with the recent Justice League marketing in a new piece released online. After Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg got solo posters and teasers ahead of the first official trailer, the photoshop artist created a Green Lantern poster to go along with them.

There is still no definitive proof that Hammer has joined DCEU just yet, but as he has done little to downplay rumors, it continues to be a scenario that will persist until it is confirmed one way or the other. If Hammer is already cast, and Hal Jordan does make an appearance in Justice League, Warners might be smart to have a poster like this on hand -- even if it comes out after the film hits theaters in November.
It's still entirely speculation that Green Lantern(s) will appear in the film. Rumors have pointed to the Lanterns being featured at some point, regardless of Jordan's appearance, with a unique alien member of the group potentially being the group's introduction in this film. Of course, with a potential reveal that big, the studio isn't just going to let it slip out that a Green Lantern is in Justice League.
The movie already has a lot on its plate without having to also introduce an entire other group of galaxy-patrolling heroes, meaning it may not have room for the Lanterns to appear. As we move closer to the November release date, whether or not the Lanterns will appear should become more clear, but for now, those thinking the group should will have this poster to hold them over.
