As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Lee Toland Krieger will initially be in charge of directing this project.
Krieger is no stranger to big productions, much less superhero productions. Among the titles he has worked for, there are films such as The Age Of Adaline, Celeste and Jesse Forever.
In terms of television products, her great performance is recognized in the pilot episodes of Riverdale, The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, The Prodigal Son and Superman And Lois.
We’ve already seen that some of the Lanterns have been cast with Jeremy Irvine and Finn Wittrock both attached to play different characters that have carried the Green Lantern title over the decades.
For those unaware, Green Lanterns are a group of space cops that wear a special ring that allows them to construct physical objects using only the power of will.
The official show description reads:
“Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”
The series is written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Seth Grahame-Smith. Like Berlanti (who serves as a producer on a slew of CW series), Krieger has some pretty significant ties to The CW.
HBO Max has yet to announce an official release date for the new Green Lantern series.
