While it's been rumored for a while that "Green Lantern Corps" would include Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart in a "buddy cop"-style film, a new report suggests that '90s Lantern Kyle Rayner is also in the mix.

According to Latino-Review, Warner Bros. wants Hal, John and Kyle to headline the film, with the intention for Hal to be portrayed by someone of Matt Damon's age range, alongside John and Kyle, who would be played younger actors.

Additionally, Heroic Hollywood has a rumor that posits five characters Warners wants to cast for the Ezra Miller "Flash" film: Iris West, Len Snart/Captain Cold, Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash, Fred Chyre and Jay Garrick, in a cameo.

Here's how each character is outlined in their report:

Iris: "Iris West is described in the breakdown as having Christiane Amanpour’s brains and Carrie Bradshaw’s style. An overcaffinated doe. A reporter at The Central City Citizen. Actresses are currently testing for this part."

Reverse-Flash: "Eobard Thawne is described in the breakdown as Central City’s Bill Gates. The smartest man in the room and he suffers from advanced degenerative disease like Stephen Hawking. Thawne is confined to a chair."

Fred Chyre: "Fred Chyre is described in the breakdown as a gruff detective who first meets Barry at the scene of a crime. Now they’re colleagues and the closest thing Barry has to a friend. Chryre is investigating the unusual death of someone at Thawne Laboratories."

Captain Cold: "Len Snart is described in the breakdown as being ex-military and turns out to be working for Thawne. Have a feeling he is the muscle the way Anatoli Knyazev (aka the KGBEAST) was the muscle for Lex Luthor in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.'"

Jay Garrick: "Jay Garrick is described in the breakdown as being a former Central University professor who was fired for fringe science, and was working on the speed force program. Supposedly his role is just a cameo."

"The Flash" is slated for a March 16, 2018 release, while "Green Lantern Corps" is set to hit theaters on June 19, 2020.
