Green Lantern Gets a Greenlight at HBO Max
It’s a bright night for Green Lantern as HBO Max has given the series an order Variety is reporting. That’s not surprising. The big news is who the show will be focused on as the cast of characters and those that wear the Green Lantern ring is varied and large.
The show will feature numerous Lanterns including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, and many more. That’s a diverse cast as it features a white man, woman, Muslim man, and Gay man as the focus. The series will also feature other Lanterns like Kilowag and introduce new Lanterns to the Corps.
The series will feature 10 one-hour episodes. It will be co-written and executive produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim, with Grahame-Smith serving as showrunner.
HBO Max is going heavy on DC properties. It not only has inherited the shows from the “defunct” DC Universe app but also has series spinning out of The Batman and The Suicide Squad in the works. Coming from DC Universe is Doom Patrol, Harley Quinn, and Titans. There’s also Strange Adventures and Justice League Dark somewhere in development.
