HBO Max announces three new DC Shows including Green Lantern

October 29th, 2019 by Marc Comments

With HBO Max, the streaming service from Warners and HBO launching May 2020 tonight it’s announcing what content we can expect.

And we’ll get into the rest in more posts, but right now, we can confirm three new DC shows.

First up will be DC Superhero High, a comedy live-action series that will focus on our favourite characters… in high school. We’ve no idea what to expect from this.

In fleeting news, it was also announced that  the service will work with Greg Berlanti, the man who brought the Arrowverse to The CW on two new series expected in 2021: Green Lantern and Strange Adventures.

While little was offered in the news front on these, Green Lantern will focus on the GL Corp, while Strange Adventures will focus on Adam Strange, one of DC’s more cosmic heroes.

“Strange Adventures” is described as a DC super hero anthology that will feature characters from across the DC canon. The one-hour drama will explore close-ended stories about the intersecting lives of ordinary humans and superhumans. Details on the Green Lantern series are being kept under wraps.

“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television,” said Berlanti.

“An anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist, and, in what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series, but I can’t reveal any more about that just yet.”

It’s unknown if these shows will exist within the Arrowverse, but we’ll keep you posted if more news arrives.

Here’s some snapped looks at the poster art:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
