One of the greater things with a shared cinematic universe is that different characters get to show up in different movies. Perry White(played by Laurence Fishburne) has made appeareances in both Man of Steel and Batman V Superman. Fans may expect him to show up in Justice Legue as well but it won’t happen. According to the actor:

“They asked me to come for a day, but I couldn’t work it out, schedule-wise. And really, what do you need the newspaperman in ‘Justice League’ for? You want to see the Flash. You want to see Aquaman. You want to see Wonder Woman. You want to see the Lantern. We’ve been waiting 35 years for these [characters] to show up on the screen. What were they doing over there? Marvel has been kicking their ass. This is the comic-book geek in me, who has a collection of comic books. I’ve been waiting to see these people on-screen forever.”

As you can read above, he states that “you want to see the Lantern“. It refers to the Green Lantern, a character that has yet to be confirmed for the movie and that will get its own standalone 2020, but does the actor know something we still don’t? Confirmed or not, what’s your opinion?
