One of the great legs from 2022 in the world of DC adaptations will be the TV series for HBO Max. After the launch of the platform last year in the United States and this year in Latin America and soon in Europe, it is time to fill the streaming service with original content. One idea that they have made clear is that they are going to play a lot with the idea of the multiverse. They are going to exploit what the Arrowverse has done with the world of parallel Earths, and even more so after the crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths”. In this way, they can connect series and movies at will, without the need for a firm continuity either.
Among those future projects are the series about the Green Lanterns, which would complement the film that is also being prepared about this group, and who knows if all this will have some kind of connection with the movie “Green Lantern” of 2011, and that is that “Crisis on Infinite Earths” recovered the film to say that its events took place on Earth-12.
How all these pieces fit together remains to be seen, but the producer Marc guggenheim has made it clear that what they are doing with this DC series is not really going to look like anything they have done before for the small screen, it is not being approached as an Arrowverse series.
Green Lantern, we are approaching it as something other than the Arrowverse. It is not going to have any creative curls. But yeah, me, Greg Berlanti, Lamont Magee, Geoff Johns, we all have experience in the Arrowverse. I’m sure the sensibilities in a way, but also a lot of lessons… we’ve learned a lot of lessons doing these series, both from a creative point of view and from a production point of view. I’m sure we’ll bring that experience to Green Lantern as we go deeper into the series.
It should be remembered that Marc Guggenheim has helped direct Arrowverse series such as “Arrow” and Supergirl and has also been a writer and / or producer for many other television series. He also co-wrote the screenplay for 2011’s “Green Lantern” with Arrowverse producer Greg Berlanti and Michael Green, which was later rewritten by Michael Goldenberg.
In that differentiation, they are also clear that they hope with the series to redeem some of the mistakes they made with the 2011 film starring Ryan Reynolds:
LEGO 75300 Star Wars Imperial Tie Fighter
The TIE fighter is equipped with an opening cockpit for a LEGO minifigure and 2 spring-loaded shooters that promise plenty of action. Includes a TIE fighter pilot with a blaster pistol, a stormtrooper with a blaster, and an NI-L8 protocol droid.
Greg and I have worked together for 16 years. We have worked together on many different things, some related to DC and some not. He came to me years ago, now with the idea of ’DC is letting us do a Green Lantern series for their streaming service, would you like to participate? And I said, of course. Because of the movie and that experience, there is a strong desire on my part and on Greg’s to correct what was done wrong ten years ago.
The first details of HBO Max’s Green Lantern suggest that the series will be totally different from the movie. It will also have other protagonists: Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott. In addition, the series will change between different time periods. It is also said that the series will be a step above the Arrowverse series when it comes to production values, as is the case with other HBO Max productions.
