The HBO Max Green Lantern series from Berlanti Productions is allegedly still in production even though several DC film and television projects are constantly being canceled.
In 2019, Green Lantern and the now-canceled Strange Adventures television series were both announced. Although Strange Adventures was never finished, it appears that work on Green Lantern is still ongoing.
Since Ryan Reynolds’ widely panned performance as Hal Jordan in that year’s Green Lantern film, the series will be the first live-action version to feature the titular character as the main focus.
Guy Gardner, Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz, and Alan Scott are among the Green Lanterns who will be the subject of the next Green Lantern television series.
According to individuals familiar with the project, work on the series, which doesn’t yet have a publication date, is still progressing. It is the most costly television series ever made by Berlanti Productions, the studio that oversaw The CW’s “Arrowverse” DC productions in the past.
The 2011 Green Lantern movie for the big screen was co-written by Greg Berlanti of Berlanti Productions. Warner Bros. Discovery will be hoping the new series dramatically outperforms the movie, which has been regarded as one of DC’s biggest disasters, in terms of viewership.
In contrast to the DC cull that has harmed projects like Batgirl, the Strange Adventures series that was introduced alongside Green Lantern was apparently quietly canceled prior to the Warner Bros. Discovery merger.
Jeremy Irvine plays Alan Scott in the show, and Finn Wittrock plays Guy Gardner. The two initial episodes will be helmed by Lee Toland Krieger.
