Jeremy Irvine, one of the stars of the upcoming Green Lantern TV show, gives an update on Greg Berlanti’s DC Comics/HBO Max series.
Jeremy Irvine, who will play Alan Scott on the The Green Lantern TV show, provides updates on HBO Max drama and more. While The CW has been a big destination for DC TV content for the past 10 years, HBO Max is becoming the new primary platform for Warner Bros. Since launching the HBO-branded streaming service, Warner Bros. used it to roll out more DC Universe content. One of the biggest TV shows the studio is working on is The Green Lanternfrom executive producer Greg Berlanti, the mastermind behind the Arrowverse.
The Green Lantern, which was first announced in 2019, will be Berlanti’s second attempt at the Emerald Knights, following the 2011 film starring Ryan Reynolds. Unlike the movie, HBO Max The Green Lantern will focus on several DC title heroes, including Guy Gardner, Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz, Alan Scott, and more. The DC drama, which picked up to series in October 2020, has Seth Grahame-Smith attached as showrunner, with a 10-episode order for season 1. Since 2021, there hasn’t been much movement on the cast for The Green Lanternwhich stars Finn Wittrock as Guy Gardner, while Jeremy Irvine plays Golden Age Green Lantern Alan Scott.
While The Green Lantern hasn’t advanced as far as expected, the HBO Max product is still on the way. in a new Metro interview, Irvine was asked about the The Green Lantern project and whether or not he has already tried on his costume. Since being cast in the role, Irvine has yet to do a costume fitting. However, the 31-year-old actor clarified that when he was offered the gig, the The Green Lantern The creative team let him know how long it would take to make the Alan Scott costume, sharing the following:
“I haven’t done it yet. As far as I know, there’s no firm start date yet. But when they offered me the role, they said it would take about two or three months to do the outfit. Now they’re going to have to put my belly in it.”
Alan, better known as the Emerald Knight of the Justice Society of America, will have his story set in 1941 as the very first human Green Lantern. In this iteration of the hero, Alan is an FBI agent while also performing duties as a Green Lantern. Much like his comic book counterpart, Alan will be portrayed as gay. The show will span decades, with Wittrock’s Green Lantern set in 1984. Other roles left to play are Simon, Jessica, Sinestro, and Bree Jarta, who will be an original creation for the series.
Although it is undoubtedly a long process to The Green Lantern TV show, there are a lot of factors to consider. For starters, HBO Max said that The Green Lantern will be one of the most expensive DC TV shows of all time, and certainly for Berlanti, who has produced several Arrowverse shows. The studio is also studying The Green Lantern as one of their crucial DC properties, along with the Green Lantern Corps movie apparently still in development. Since HBO Max has already distributed a 10-episode order, perhaps they wanted all the scripts written before they begin filming, which will be VFX-heavy. I hope there will be more news on The Green Lantern sooner rather than later.
