Ever since the script leaked, there’s been a lot of noise about Superman possibly making a cameo in ‘Green Lantern’, but hopes of seeing the man in tights seem like they could be dashed… or are they?
Here’s what Marc Guggenheim had to say to MTV on the issue:
“Without trying very hard, you could probably find the leaked script on the internet. The Superman cameo is in the leaked script. It survived several drafts. Ultimately, it was cut for budgetary reasons. We took it out in one of our later drafts. After my interview with you, of course. The Clark Kent cameo is still near and dear to my heart. I really wanted it to be in the movie. You never know — it can still happen. If Tom Welling has a free hour or two, you never know.”
The good news is that there will be plenty of other goodies for die hard fans to enjoy.
“I think there will be plenty of Easter Eggs in the movie on other fronts. I’m a sucker for those. I’m the voice for those. I’m always thinking we can fit in that name or we can fit in that character. I’ll always do that. I can pretty much promise that Ch’p will not be in the movie. Martin’s favorite Lantern, who is in the movie, is Bzzd. The funny thing is, from our very first meeting with Martin, he came onto the project and really knew his stuff. He was able to quote Lanterns and said ‘I love Bzzd’ from the start. I was like, ‘Okay, I guess Bzzd is in the movie.'”
