Green Lantern will find a home on HBO Max. The world of DC is certainly utilizing the streaming service. Not only with the upcoming Peacemaker series, but now Wonder Woman 1984 will hit the WarnerMedia platform. While we wait for all of that, we have new details on the upcoming Green Lantern series. Which is produced by Greg Berlanti and written by Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Seth Grahame-Smith.
According to the Illuminderi, the Green Lantern series is hoping to begin shooting the series in April of next year. It’s also planning to shoot in Los Angeles, as opposed to other Berlanti DC shows. In addition to this information, the news outlet has also found out some information on the characters expected to be in the show. Take a look below:
Guy Gardner: White Male, 30’s. A hulking mass of masculinity, as rendered in the comics. Guy is a personification of the hyper-patriotism found in the 1980’s that birthed Hulk Hogan and Rambo. However, Guy is still likable. He might act foolish, but he is not a fool. Guy loves his daughter and wife with all of his hard-partying, fast driving, hot tempered heart. But like many alpha males, there is a deep undercurrent of pain driving it all.
Bree Jarta: Black, Female, 30’s. Few Lanterns take their commitment to the Corps and it’s purpose more seriously than Bree. Bree is half-human and it’s the half she’s worked hard to forget. Bree has an alien mother and a human father. However, she was raised on a more enlightened planet with an advanced society. Bree outworked her peers and earner her Ring only to find herself partnered with Guy Gardner.
Alan Scott: White Male, 28 years old. From the outside, Alan is the model of early 1940’s. The image of a G-Man. Alan is handsome, clean-shaven and well dressed without a hair out of place. He has spent his young life trying to personify truth, justice, and the American Way. He is already a household name in L.A. and is seen as hero thanks to positive press coverage. However, for all of Alan’s honesty, there is one huge lie that follows him. He is a gay man. A fact that, in his era, could cost him his job, or even his life.
There’s no word as to who will be cast as Guy Gardner, Bree Jarta, and Alan Scott. But, the descriptions alone are super exciting. Fans have waited a while for a decent Green Lantern live-action project and if the recent DC films are any indication, it should be great!
