the The Green Lantern The TV series currently in the works for HBO Max will indeed feature a gay version of the iconic DC Comics superhero. The show has been in the works for a while now, but has finally gained some real momentum lately. Finn Wittrock recently signed on to play Guy Gardner, one of the versions of the character that will be part of the festivities. But another actor yet to be played will play a different version, which will be an open member of the LGBTQ community.
A new report was recently released retailer Warner Bros. ‘new Superman movie, which will be produced by JJ Abrams and will feature a noir version of the Kryptonian hero. Ta-Nehisi Coates writes the screenplay. For this particular project. The report then goes on to detail how committed the studio is to diversity with its full lineup of upcoming DC projects, both on the big and small screen. The Green Lantern show HBO Max is next mentioned, with the report specifically noting that “HBO Max is looking for a gay character from Green Lantern for an upcoming series.”
This serves more as confirmation than something that has been casually revealed before. When writers Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, The LEGO Batman Movie) and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) joined the project last year, it was confirmed that various members of the Green Lantern Corps such that Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott will star on the show. Alan Scott is gay on the pages of DC Comics, so this was expected to be a factor in the show as well. Even though this new report doesn’t specifically say Scott is going to be the gay Green Lantern, it almost seems assured at this point.
Greg Berlanti, the architect behind the ArrowVerse on The CW, produces the The Green Lantern show for HBO Max. Specific plot details are largely kept under wraps for now, but will span decades, from the 1940s through the 1980s. Sinestro has been confirmed as one of the main villains. Above all, John Stewart and Hal Jordan, the two most famous names associated with the hero, should not appear. Since the Green Lantern Body. the movie is still in development, Warner Bros. could save them for the big screen. Although this project has been going on for years and we haven’t had an official update for some time.
Warner Bros. previously adapted the DC Comics series in a movie in 2011. The Green Lantern, who played Ryan Reynolds in the lead role, was a major flop and is not held in high regard. It was just a few years before the studio decided to create their own cinematic universe to rival what Marvel Studios had done. The hero has been on the sidelines (in live-action anyway) ever since. We will be sure to keep you updated as more details on the project become available. This news comes to us via Hollywood journalist.
