The Green Lantern Corps is an organization comprised of individuals dubbed Green Lanterns. They are known to channel their power through ring constructs.

During Darkseid's attempted terraformation of Earth thousands of years ago, the Green Lantern Yalan Gur joined the forces of Earth, with the assistance of the Old Gods, to battle him. Gur used his ring to kill several of Apokolips' forces, but was ultimately slain by Darkseid.
After creating an outpost for his Parademon army to begin another invasion of Earth, the Old God Steppenwolf contacted DeSaad to report on his findings. During their conversation, Steppenwolf emphasized his confidence in the invasion's success, citing the fact that there were no Lanterns present to protect the planet this time. Despite his confidence, Steppenwolf was ultimately defeated and killed by a Unity of Earth's forces, achieving the victory even without renewed aid from the Lanterns.
At least one Green Lantern fought against the regime during the Knightmare future. The Lantern Kilowog was eventually killed in battle, as his dead body appeared in front of the destroyed Hall of Justice.
At least two of the Lanterns were given power rings to aid them in their missions. These rings are able to create a beam that they can use for offensive and defensive measures.
- In DC Comics, the Green Lantern Corps is led by the Guardians of the Universe and each members are assigned to different Space Sectors, for instance, Earth is in Sector 2814, whether this is the same in the DC Extended Universe is unconfirmed.
- Instead of wearing their iconic green masks from the comics, Green Lanterns wear green makeup around their eyes as seen on Yalan Gur. Although, as the masks, much like their armor, were manifestations of the rings, and Gur was a Lantern from 5000 years ago, it's possible this was done purposely, as the the original Lantern rings, the proto-rings, were very limited in their capabilities compared to the power rings used several millennia later.
Behind the scenes
- According to Zack Snyder, he had an idea for including another Green Lantern in Justice League which would have probably involved casting Ryan Reynolds in the role of a backup Lantern to that other Lantern.
- Snyder revealed in another interview that the other Lantern he had planned to include originally was that of John Stewart, who was originally written and partially shot to appear in Justice League. During the production of Zack Snyder's Justice League, Snyder shot another version in his backyard, which the studio later asked him to remove. Snyder instead chose to repurpose the scene to act as the final scene of his film, only now involving Martian Manhunter. Snyder later confirmed that John Stewart's actor was played by Wayne T. Carr.
- In Lights Out, there is a man wearing a Green Lantern shirt. This is likely just an Easter egg, not intended to imply there is a public Green Lantern at the time.
