Production Update for HBO Max’s ‘Green Lantern’ Live Action Series


Warner Bros. has been attempting to bring DC’s Green Lantern to the small screen for several years now, with an HBO Max series being in the works since 2019. Updates surrounding the Green Lantern series have been relatively few and far between in the years since, with only two cast members — Finn Wittrock as Guy Gardner and Jeremy Irvine as Alan Scott — having been publicly announced last year.


Irvine in an interview revealed that there still isn’t “a firm start date” for when the series will begin production, and that he hasn’t gotten to try on a costume quite yet.


“I haven’t yet,” Irvine revealed. “As far as I know, there’s not a firm start date yet. But when they offered me the role, they did say it was going to be about two or three months to make the outfit. Now they’re gonna have to fit my paunch into it.”


Green Lantern will be set across multiple points in time, and will star Wittrock (American Horror Story, Deep Water) as Guy Gardner, and Irvine (War Horse, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) as Alan Scott, with Tobias Menzies (Game of Thrones, The Crown) previously rumored to be portraying Sinestro. The series is also expected to feature Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Killowog, and a newly-created character named Bree Jarta. The show is executive produced and run by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim.
