HBO Max has officially announced that a live-action Green Lantern series from Greg Berlanti will premiere on the streaming service.
During the WarnerMedia Day presentation of upcoming streaming service HBO Max, HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey and executive vice president of content acquisitions and strategy Michael Quigley introduced Berlanti to officially announce he is developing Green Lantern and Strange Adventures TV shows. Strange Adventures will be a DC anthology series, telling close-ended stories with characters in the DC canon. Details on the Green Lantern TV show are being kept under wraps. Further, Aubrey confirmed Banks is producing DC Super Hero High, about a group of students who will one day become superheroes attending a boarding school for gifted kids.
Berlanti, the mastermind behind The CW’s Arrowverse, took a first crack at the Green Lantern franchise back in 2011 alongside Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim. They co-wrote Green Lantern, though they ultimately lost creative control before its release. The film, which starred Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, was a critical and box office flop.
Following this, Berlanti went on to produce Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman and Black Lightning for The CW. Additionally, he will have a hand in Superman and Lois as well as Green Arrow and the Canaries. He is also attached to DC Universe’s Titans, Doom Patrol and Stargirl.
