Model sheets for Green Lantern John Stewart in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
John Stewart is a member of the Justice League in the Justice League animated series. In this series, Stewart's ring was initially constrained to permitting him to fly, generating a protective force field, creating walls, and firing energy blasts; this limitation was established as being due to Stewart's mindset, not an inherent limitation of the ring itself (the series' version of Stewart is a former U.S. Marine, not an architect). After being berated by Katma Tui for his unimaginative use of the ring, Stewart has learned to generate complex tools (to defuse a bomb in one instance) and weapons. (He was also shown to be more creative when transformed into a child in the episode "Kids Stuff".) In a development not seen in any other version of the Green Lantern mythos, Stewart's eyes glow green when wearing his charged power ring. The glow fades when the ring runs out of power. The series has been inconsistent about the ring's effectiveness against yellow; Stewart is seen fighting Sinestro in one episode, and the yellow energy does not prove to be a significant problem for the Lantern, although in a later episode of Justice League Unlimited, the Flash threw yellow Jell-O at him, breaking his force field. Stewart's voice is provided by Phil LaMarr.
Kyle Rayner appears as Green Lantern in "In Brightest Day...", an episode of Superman: The Animated Series. This version is recruited by Abin Sur, and fights Jordan's old enemy Sinestro (voiced by Ted Levine). Guy Gardner makes a cameo as the mugger who steals Jimmy Olsen's camera. Rayner is voiced by Michael P. Greco.
Rayner is briefly mentioned in one episode of Justice League and appears as one of the Green Lanterns attending Superman's funeral in "Hereafter". He later reappears after the series became Justice League Unlimited in "The Return", bearing a far greater resemblance to his comics counterpart. Rayner's appearance (where he and the Corps unsuccessfully attempted to defend Oa from Amazo) finally explains why Stewart is the Green Lantern of Earth; Rayner had been stationed on Oa all along. Will Friedle provides Rayner's voice in "The Return".
A character known as Scott Mason / Green Guardsman appears in the two-part Justice League episode "Legends", in which Stewart and several other members travel to a parallel universe. This other universe has its own superhero group, the Justice Guild of America, whose members are modeled on Golden Age versions of the Justice Society of America characters. Green Guardsman is an homage to the Golden Age Green Lantern. His power ring is unable to affect aluminum. The voice of the Green Guardsman is provided by William Katt.
The Justice League version of Stewart appeared in several episodes of Static Shock, both as a member of the League and in a solo appearance. Phil LaMarr reprises his Justice League role as Green Lantern, as well as providing the voice for Static.
Kai-ro as appeared in Batman Beyond.
"The Call", a two-part episode of Batman Beyond, features a future Justice League that includes a Green Lantern who was an eight-year-old Asian child; he later appears as a young adult in the Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue". His name was Kai-ro, a tribute to Kairo, Green Lantern's alien sidekick on The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure. Kai-ro is voiced by Lauren Tom.
Hal Jordan in Justice League Unlimited.
Hal Jordan appears briefly in the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Once and Future Thing, Part 2: Time, Warped" in which the time-traveling villain Chronos causes the timeline to become unstable, with characters changing or disappearing as their history is altered. At one point, Stewart morphs into Jordan, who aids the other characters for several minutes before changing back into Stewart. Jordan is voiced by Adam Baldwin.
On the animated TV series Duck Dodgers, the episode entitled "The Green Loontern" includes appearances by many members of the Green Lantern Corps. In this episode, a mixup at the dry cleaners results in Dodgers (Daffy Duck) getting Jordan's outfit and ring. Filmmaker and comics fan Kevin Smith provided the voice of Jordan for this cameo. Other Green Lanterns that appear in this episode are Kilowog (voiced by John DiMaggio), Katma Tui (voiced by Tara Strong), Boodikka (voiced by Grey DeLisle), Ch'p (voiced by Frank Welker), and Sinestro (voiced by John de Lancie), as well as nonspeaking appearances by Stewart, Arisia Rrab, G'nort, and Guy Gardner.
In the fourth-season finale of The Batman, "The Joining", the Justice League is introduced. Hal Jordan is included among its members, in a non-speaking cameo. He next appears in the fifth-season episode "Ring Toss", voiced by Dermot Mulroney and again in the 2-part series finale, "Lost Heroes".
Batman: The Brave and the Bold
Guy Gardner appears in multiple episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, voiced by James Arnold Taylor. He appears briefly in the pre-title segment of "Day of the Dark Knight!", in which he ignores Batman's advice and accidentally frees an imprisoned alien by pouring coffee on him.
In the episode "The Eyes of Despero!", Gardner, G'nort, Sinestro and Mogo join forces with the Batman to stop the villain Despero from using his mental powers to turn the Green Lantern Corps into an army of mind controlled slaves. Other members of the Lantern Corps are seen, including Ch'p, Kilowog, Medphyll, and Hal Jordan. Jordan later makes a cameo appearance as a member of the original Justice League of America in "Sidekicks Assemble!", and is mentioned in "Darkseid Descending!" when Guy joins the Justice League International. A heroic version of Sinestro (clad in a Sinestro Corps uniform) briefly appears "Deep Cover for Batman!", where he is shown as one of the superheroes being held captive by the Injustice Syndicate. In this series, Hal is voiced by Loren Lester, Sinestro is voiced by Xander Berkeley, G'nort is voiced by Alexander Polinsky, and the Guardians are voiced by J. K. Simmons and Armin Shimerman. In the episode "Crisis: 22,300 Miles Above Earth!", Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern, appears as a member of the Justice Society of America. The JSA and the new Justice League International are meeting at a mixer on the Watchtower. The JSA is quickly disappointed when they learn they were not meeting the original Justice League which had broken up recently. Things get bad and both teams start fighting each other. Meanwhile, Batman is trying to stop Ra's Al Ghul from firing a fusion rocket into the sun triggering solar flares that will melt the polar ice caps and flood the planet. He sends a distress signal to the Watchtower and the two leagues stop fighting and team up to defeat Ra's. In this episode, he is voiced by Corey Burton.
Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Alan Scott appear in the Young Justice animated series. Jordan and Stewart appear as members of the Justice League, while Scott appears as a member of the Justice Society. Jordan and Stewart make their first appearances in the episode "Fireworks", Gardner appears in "Revelation" in a cameo to help the Justice League, and Scott appears in the episode "Humanity" in a flashback. None of them are voiced except for Stewart, who was voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson in the episode "Failsafe". In the episode "Agendas", Jordan and Stewart were convenes recruitment for the Justice League new members, both Jordan and Stewart immediately dismiss Gardner from the Flash's idea.
Alan Scott briefly appears in the Smallville episode "Absolute Justice" which featured the Justice Society of America. He is a superhero in the 1970s and a CEO of an unnamed broadcasting company, who was arrested for fraud by the government in a mission to take down the Justice Society of America. He, like the others, tried to take the blame for all crimes, though he and the rest were never convicted. As the law was now aware of his superhero identity, Scott retired from heroics. In 2010, Clark Kent and Chloe Sullivan find old black-and-white footage of Alan (his power ring is visible on his left hand), along with his criminal record. Very little is said about him, other than that he is the CEO of a broadcasting company, but it was confirmed that he was still alive by Stargirl and hinted at that he had children. His power ring and Lantern battery are later shown in a display case at the JSA Brownstone, as well as in his portrait in a JSA painting. Alan Scott is played by Doug Pinton. Subsequently, John Stewart and the Green Lantern Corps appear in the comic book continuation of the show.
Within Arrowverse, there are several references and nods to Green Lantern and its characters. Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim tweeted a photo of Ferris Air with the slogan "We fly without Fear" as an easter egg of Green Lantern. The series' star Stephen Amell has talked about seeing Green Lantern in the series. In The Flash episode, "Rogue Air", The Flash mentions that Ferris Air shut down after one of their test pilots disappeared, alluding to Hal Jordan. In another episode "Welcome to Earth-2", Jordan's name is referred from a list of contacts on a phone at Earth-2 Barry and Iris's home, implying his Earth-2 doppelgänger's existence. In the season 4 premiere "Green Arrow", a man wearing an aviator jacket with the name "Jordan" on it appears at the bar where Oliver Queen and Amanda Waller are, and an advertisement sign proclaims "In brightest day, In blackest night, Come to Coast City, When money's tight". Alan Scott is also mentioned in Legends of Tomorrow as the father of Obsidian (Todd Rice). In the Arrow episode Elseworlds, Part 2, Barry Allen of Earth-90 mistakes John Diggle for John Stewart, asking him where is his ring.
A live-action film titled Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan and directed by Martin Campbell was released on June 17, 2011. The film, being the character's first theatrical appearance, featured an origin story. The movie was neither well-received nor financially successful. Some of the film's most criticized aspects were the CGI elements that featured heavily. Though the movie was intended to launch a franchise of its own, the studio abandoned plans that were to follow.
