Take this news with a grain of salt, but according to Comic Book Movie, Krona will make an appearance in the upcoming Green Lantern movie alongside Parallax. According to the set report

Several streets will be completely closed off to allow room for an Earth-based scene involving the fear entity Parallax and Krona.

Born on Maltus, Krona is an Oan scientist who became obsessed with observing the origins of the universe itself, despite an ancient legend that said discovering that secret would cause a great calamity. Krona constructs a machine that pierces the temporal barrier and views the beginnings of time itself. Krona catches a glimpse of the hand of creation depositing the speck that would become the entire cosmos. His machine explodes at that instant, and the universe is shattered causing the creation of the Multiverse as the universe replicates into an infinite number of parallel universes. At this same moment, the Anti-Matter Universe is created, unleashing evil into the cosmos; thus, the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor are born. As punishment for this act, Krona is transformed into pure energy by his fellow Oans and is sent to forever wander the cosmos. Krona’s actions are what caused the Oans to become the Guardians of the Universe.

If DC is really setting up a multiverse, or even hinting at it, it would certainly explain all the various incarnations of the superheroes we’ve seen the movies to date. Heck, if the Justice League movie is still in development, we may see a Crisis story building for the big super hero movie get together.

For now, this is a rumor, but at least it won’t catch you completely by surprise if it turns out to be true.

    come on, this is dc we’re talking about! they can barely make a successful superman movie, how are they gonna throw in a multiverse story that the non comic book masses can understand?
    im pretty sure this isnt true, and even if it is, it wont be the krona that the wiki states. he’ll be some extremely watered down version….

    Krona has to be part of the GL movie, if only to explain the role the Guardians play in the universe.

      I think you’re giving too much credit to the backstory here. I doubt that the Guardians’ role is going to be addressed on that level…

        It would take all of 30 seconds to explain why the Guardians created the Corps, you’d think that at some point Hal would say “Ring explain GL Corps origins”

        P.S.- Just saw “Kick-Ass” the movie, all hope for a good comic book movie have forever died in my soul ;-(

        They basically ironed out any originality the Comic book had.

          I actually thought that Kick-Ass was pretty good. I know everyone has their own tastes. I didn’t like the jetpack turret gun thing, but I did really like the bit where he explains that he begged the EMT to get rid of his costume instead of the book saying that somehow with broken legs and bleeding out that he managed to wriggle out of a wetsuit. I did like the angle in the book better though that Big Daddy was just an accountant and a schmuck who got bored with his life and I wish they’d have used that version, but they were still writing the book when the movie was being made, that could have just been an afterthought/swerve that the writer put in because he thought it would be cool. I thought that it’s a good superhero movie to wrangle the crowd who’s really into films like The Hangover and Hot Tub Time Machine and things like that, good action, good humor and some “Damn that little chick is crazy” moments.

    If Marvel was smart they would do a DC versus Marvel movie just so they can explain why there are three Incredible Hulks and two Spidermen.
