For the last three years we’ve been dying to see when super-producer Greg Berlanti’s Green Lantern show would be coming to HBO, and now we’ve finally got an update.
During a recent Instagram Q&A, one of the show’s stars, Finn Wittrock, who is playing Guy Gardner, one of the multiple Green Lanterns who the show will focus on, gave us a little tease on how the show is going.
“I am sworn to secrecy, and especially since I am new to the DCU, I don’t want them to kick me out of the universe,” he said when a fan asked about the Green Lantern show. “But I can tell you that the script is great, and that I’m just starting to get into Guy Gardner shape!”
It’s not much to go on, but honestly, we’ll take any good news about the show at this point!
The show was first announced back in 2019, with Berlanti on board as a creator. Back then he said the show will be “the biggest DC show ever made.” Berlanti is the expert in the area, having created and produced shows like Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Titans, The Flash, Superman & Lois, and Doom Patrol.
The next year, it was announced that the show wouldn’t focus on just one Green Lantern, but will feature several, including the original hero to have that name, a gay man named Alan Scott. Scott is set to be played by British actor Jeremy Irvine. Alan Scott’s scenes in the show will take place in 1941.
Green Lantern will also feature other heroes who carry power rings, including Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Kilowog, and Sinestro. It’s also introducing a new character by the name of Bree Jarta. Other than Scott and Gardner, no one else has been cast yet in the show.
