Green Lantern: Finn Wittrock to Star as Guy Gardner in HBO Max Series

....One Green Lantern down, roughly a half-dozen more to go.

American Horror Story vet Finn Wittrock is set to star in HBO Max’s forthcoming Green Lantern series, which will depict the time-tripping adventures of a multitude of Lanterns.

Wittrock will play the Guy Gardner iteration of the superhero, a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism.

Green Lantern — co-written and exec-produced by Arrowverse overlord Greg Berlanti and Arrow/Legends of Tomorrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim — “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 other Lanterns — “from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

When the ambitious DC superhero project was announced in 2019, Berlanti teased that Green Lantern “promises to be our biggest DC show ever made.”



not......Ryan Reynolds.......?!

The phrase “reinvents the classic DC property" does not bode well for the series. As I understand it the main complaint with the film version was that it played much too fast and loose with established canon by over-condensing and dumbing-down what should have been a much richer and more nuanced story.

The last decent treatment of the GL story was, so far as I was concerned, the animated "Green Lantern: First Flight" ... the voice characterizations for that were just great, as well as the story, direction, etc.

Why they couldn't have gotten Nathan Fillion for the role is beyond me. He would have made a great GL.
