Green Lantern Showrunner Teases A Gigantic Show
Seth Grahame-Smith, the showrunner for the upcoming HBO Max live-action Green Lantern series, says the show will be absolutely gigantic.
Seth Grahame-Smith, the showrunner for the upcoming HBO Max live-action Green Lantern series, says the show will be absolutely gigantic. The series will feature a number of Green Lantern Corps members from the DC comics, including Guy Gardner (Finn Wittrock) and Alan Scott (Jeremy Irvine), though the two most famous Green Lanterns – Hal Jordan and John Stewart – have yet to be announced. As of now, the Green Lantern series has no official release date.
The recent history of live-action Green Lantern stories isn’t exactly stellar, which puts burdens of both pressure and potential on the HBO Max series. The Ryan Reynolds-led Green Lantern film received middling reviews, and though the John Stewart version of the character was meant to appear in Zack Snyder’s DCEU films, those plans were ultimately cancelled by Warner Bros. Even the Arrowverse – a franchise that’s featured loads of DC characters both major and minor – has barely touched on the Green Lantern lore.
