HBO Max bringing Green Lantern to the small screen?

September 1st, 2019 by Marc Comments

An interesting Green Lantern rumour has surfaced.

HBO Max, the upcoming streaming service, will be the home of The CW’s DC shows – at least digitally – and it looks like their showrunner, Greg Berlanti, who has been hired to produce shows for Max too.

And one of those shows may be… Green Lantern Corps featuring Kyle Rayner.

So why wouldn’t Berlanti be bringing GL to The CW? After all, the Corp has been set up in the Arrowverse with John Diggle. But the reason is simply, well, money. The CW wouldn’t be able to do the show justice as it would need a massive amount of money that Max would just be in a better position to put up.

The rumour comes from Lords of the Long Box who seem to have contacts at Warners and beyond and were the ones to first confirm developments with She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Ms Marvel, so it does look like they know what they are talking about.

But why Kyle Renner and not Hal Jordan or any of the other Lanterns? Well, remember the rumours about JJ Abrams making a Green Lantern movie (here)? Well, it seems Hal Jordan is being kept for there.

So, if this is all true, then we’ll have plenty of Green Lantern content in the next few years.

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….
