Greg Berlanti is developing The Green Lantern and Strange Adventures exclusively for the HBO Max streaming service. Yes, as in that Berlanti Productions that brought DC shows Arrow, The Flash, and other Arrowverse show to The CW.
The details of The Green Lantern are being kept under wraps. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
As for Strange Adventures, the series is a DC anthology, featuring “characters from across the DC Canon”, according to Variety. The show will feature close-ended stories about how the lives of superheroes and ordinary human intersect with each other. John Stephens will serve as showrunner, writer and executive producer with Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Charlie Huston will co-executive produce. Brigitte Hales will produce, with Selwyn Seyfu Hinds serving as consulting producer.
“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television. 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.” – Greg Berlanti statement
I’m interested to see which Green Lantern they decide to use. Probably Hal Jordan since he was the first, and John Stewart has already been referenced in the CW Arrowverse during the Elseworlds crossover. And I think some Arrow fans are hoping that David Ramsey will play that version of that the Green Lantern in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths. With Berlanti at the helm, I’m sure he keep some kind of continuity with the CW shows. The possibilities are endless for DC TV now.
