HBO Max’s Green Lantern series finds its Alan Scott

May 20th, 2021 by Marc Comments

It looks like we have another Green Lantern to join Finn Wittrock’s Guy Gardner in HBO Max’s upcoming Green Lantern series.

Warhorse and Treadstone star Jeremy Irvine will play Green Lantern Alan Scott, a Lantern from the 1940s who was recently – in the comics – reintroduced as a character from the 2000s.

Scott is an openly gay hero in the comics, so it’s likely this will continue in the new series too.

The series is expected to be the home of several Lanterns and, with Gardner and Scott both cast now, it looks like this will be the case.

Just, come on, the show is produced by the Arrowverse’s Greg Berlanti and we recently learned that, despite years of build-up/anticipation, David Ramsey’s John (Stewart) Diggle will probably not suit up (here), so surely we can see Ramsey cast here as John Stewart? It would make sense and still allow the show to stand on its own. Just sayin’.

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….
