Green Lantern (HBO Max)

‘Green Lantern’ Series Gets Greenlight at HBO Max

HBO Max has given out a series order to “Green Lantern,” Variety has learned.

Based on the DC Comics property, the show was first announced as being in development last year. Plot details are now available for the first time, however, from HBO Max:

"From HBO Max, DC, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television comes a bold adaptation of the iconic comic book franchise, a saga spanning decades and galaxies. GREEN LANTERN will depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man — and many more. The series will also include fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and will also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps."

HBO Max has ordered 10 one-hour episodes. The series will be co-written and executive produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim, with Grahame-Smith serving as showrunner. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television, where Berlanti is under a rich overall deal.

While not stated, it's possible HBO Max's parent company Warner Bros. is holding on to the DC characters of Hal Jordan, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner for the Green Lantern feature film previously reported.

We deserve better.

Report: HBO Max’s Green Lantern Series May Film in April

It’s been several months since HBO Max announced that it was developing a new Green Lantern TV series. And apparently, filming is set to begin sooner than expected.

According to an ad found in Production List, Green Lantern will start shooting in L.A. on April 12. Warner Bros. and DC have been vague about which power ring-wielders will show up on the new series. However, the listing names Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott as characters.

Seth Grahame-Smith, who was once in line to direct WB’s The Flash film, is showrunning Green Lantern. He’s writing the series alongside Arrowverse vet Marc Guggenheim, who also co-wrote the 2011 movie. Although the show takes place in a separate continuity from the Arrowverse, Greg Berlanti is onboard the project as a producer.

HBO Max has already given the series a 10-episode order. Regardless, the streaming service still hasn’t announced a release date. And if filming really is six weeks away, we can probably assume that the casting process has already begun.
