    Johns wasn't a writer for the first film, but he was involved with it... He was one of the co-producers.

    DC was one of the production companies on GL. That alone would have got him a producer credit. Doesn't mean he was directly involved in everything.

    Besides a few rare instances, I've never been a fan of Hal Jordan, so I'm all for putting John front and center...

    As any good Marine should be.

    Moving on, some folks floated the idea of Michael B Jordan as John but honestly I think he’s a GL who’s better with a few more miles on him but I must admit I’m at a loss to think of whom should fill the role.

    But the point remains, he was a part of the film, and we really have no idea how much input he may or may not have had on it. I'd agree he probably didn't contribute much to that film, but that's still a pretty big difference from saying he wasn't involved at all.

    Johns had his fingerprints all over that movie, and all the argument to the contrary is willful blindness. All that stupid Hector Hammond subplot? No one but Johns would have pushed for that.

    Well it cannot be because in DC the Guardians of the Galaxy are little blue people who have been around since the creation of the universe. ;)
