It appears that not even the demise of HBO Max can dim the Green Lantern's light!
Just a day after rumors started floating that Greg Berlanti's gay-inclusive upcoming Green Lantern show was going to be canceled as a part of the Warner Bros./Discovery merger, it looks like the show is back to being in the books!
According to news from The Hollywood Reporter, Green Lantern "remains on track at the streamer."
We were all worried that the Green Lantern series was going to be canceled after Kevin Smith said that his Strange Adventures show was shelved and that he thought Green Lantern might be next.
"I don't know this for a fact but I haven't heard anything about the Green Lantern series they were supposedly doing," Smith said on Hollywood Babble-On. "I wouldn't be surprised if that was a casualty too."
Thank goodness he was wrong.
Green Lantern will be Berlanti's second outing with the superhero after he wrote the 2011 flop movie starring Ryan Reynolds. This time around he, along with showrunner Seth Grahame-Smith, he'll be following several Green Lanterns, including gay man Alan Scott (Jeremy Irvine), Guy Gardner (Finn Wittrock), Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz, Sinestro, Kilowog, and more. The show's vast reach and outer-space settings are said to be the reason for the show's delays.
According to THR, "all involved are taking their time with the effects-heavy show -- the priciest series Berlanti Productions has ever mounted -- in order to get it right."
We might have to wait for a while for it, but at least we'll eventually get this gay Green Lantern show.
