Green Lantern TV Show Coming to HBO Max from Arrowverse's Greg Berlanti

Recommended Posts

WarnerMedia has announced a new live-action Green Lantern series executive producer Greg Berlanti calls "our biggest DC show ever made." That Green Lantern project is one of three new DC Comics-based shows coming exclusively to the HBO Max streaming platform.

The news comes out of a presentation at WarnerMedia's HBO Max presentation. WarnerMedia has yet to reveal a name for the Green Lantern project, describing it only as a "Green Lantern inspired series." Whether that implies the series will deviate from the traditional Green Lantern mythology or focus on characters other than traditional protagonists like Hal Jordan or John Stewart remains to be seen.

 

We do know the series will be overseen by Greg Berlanti's Berlanti Productions, raising the question of whether the series might be connected to the Arrowverse, or Berlanti's DC Universe shows, which include Titans and Doom Patrol. Arrow fans have long speculated David Ramsey's character John Diggle may actually be the Arrowverse's version of John Stewart. An Arrow: Season 7 episode already acknowledged that fan theory, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that this "Green Lantern inspired series" could wind up being an Arrow spinoff.

WarnerMedia also announced Strange Adventures, an anthology series also produced by Berlanti. According to WarnerMedia's press release, the series "will explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans."

Strange Adventures will be executive produced by Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and John Stephens, with Stephens also serving as writer and showrunner. The series will also be helmed by co-executive producer Charlie Huston, producer Brigitte Hales, and consulting producer Selwyn Seyfu Hinds.

 

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

Finally, Elizabeth Banks is executive producing a half-hour comedy series titled DC Super Hero High. The series follows a group of teens attending a boarding school for gifted children, none of whom realize they're destined to one day join the ranks of the DC Universe's greatest heroes. It's unclear whether the series will focus on younger versions of familiar DC heroes or brand new characters.

DC Super Hero High is produced by Banks' Brownstone Productions in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Banks and Max Handelman are executive producers and Dannah Shinder is a co-executive producer. Scott Weinger, John D. Beck, and Ron Hart will write the series.

These announcements also call the future of WarnerMedia's DC Universe streaming service into question. Will these three shows also be made available to DCU subscribers, as with Doom Patrol: Season 2? Will DCU continue to co-exist with HBO Max once the latter launches in spring 2020? Hopefully WarnerMedia will clarify that situation in the near future.
