Superman Appears in Green Lantern December 4, 2008 Green Lantern to feature a cameo from the man of steel? According to reports, upcoming superhero “Green Lantern” movie may feature a cameo appearance from Superman. The film’s screenwriter Marc Guggenheim told reporters that DC Comics’s flagship hero makes a brief appearance in the script and the filmmakers are considering offering the part to Superman Returns star Brandon Routh or Smallville’s Tom Welling. Guggenheim said: “I love that stuff in general, and I think the fans would enjoy it. Brandon Routh or even Tom Welling [in Green Lantern] would be awesome. And anything is possible. The beauty part of being the writer, though, is that I don’t actually have to make that judgment call.” He added: “You have to be careful when you do things like that, because it sounds great in concept, but when you sit down to watch it, it poses the danger of pulling you out of the film.” Green Lantern focuses on fighter pilot Hal Jordan, who is handed a ring that wields huge power and is expected in cinemas by 2010.
