IGN has reported with a first cover image of Green Lantern: Earth One, that DC Comics is already redesigning the hero in an Interstellar twist fashion. Writer Corinna Bechko also stated the possibilities to remodel Hal Jordan’s story since the new hero is entirely different Hal Jordan. He said:
“Hal Jordan is a smart, capable person with a space and science background who has a lot of untapped potential even before he finds the ring. That means he’s going to approach everything the ring does from the perspective of a scientist, but he’s going to employ it for action and adventure. The result for us as writers is the opportunity to fully embrace the science fiction aspects of the story in a way that would be impossible with a lot of other characters.”
Writer Gabriel Hardman also explains his experience with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. He said:
“Approaching this as an Earth One story gives us the opportunity to go back to the core concept of Green Lantern and interpret it through the lens of a modern, grounded sci-fi story while still being true to the Silver Age roots of Hal Jordan. Having storyboarded Interstellar, this is an approach I’m comfortable with and have wanted to explore in comics. Realistic sci-fi is only the beginning of this story; we have something much more epic in store.”
Green Lanter: Earth One will arrive on March 20, 2018.
