And so a gay Green Lantern would automatically be "forced"? Non sequitur. Sometimes screenwriters dramatically alter/reinvent source material. Troy, anyone? Or wait - does the Green Lantern franchise have a ghost that haunts screenwriters' dreams and make them wake up to the sound of screaming lemurs if they consider introducing gay themes?
Back a million years ago when I worked in a comic shop, I had to reevalute a customer after he said something like "I'm sick of the writer in Green Lantern pushing the gay agenda, why can't they do that in their own comics?"

Kyle's assistant/office monkey for his art studio was gay. They was an issue where he was lynched, followed by several issues of apology and recrimination.

Judd Winick was writing the book at the time.
