First it was House of The Dragons, then this…
Remember when the film Green Lantern scarred everyone in June 2011? It flopped so badly and was one of the worst films of 2011, with many fans being upset at the adaptation and even Ryan Reynolds himself loathing it.
8 years on, there a sliver of hope for fans of Green Lantern, albeit on a smaller scale.
HBO Max an upcoming streaming service owned by Warmer Media (who also owns Warner Bros.) has announced that the TV series “Green Lantern” will be directly going to streaming.
Produced by Greg Berlanti (who was also involved in the infamous film) has an impressive resume in DC shows. He has produced live-action DC shows such as Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash.
It is unclear whether a reboot for Green Lantern will materialize for the silver screen. A reboot, Green Lantern Corps was announced in 2014 scheduled to release in 2020 but there has been no follow up on it.
However, Mike Flanagan, director of Doctor Sleep and Haunting of Hill House, has said that he has been met with Warner Bros. execs, to possibly direct a superhero film.
If Mike Flanagan were to direct The Green Lantern, it wouldn’t be the first time that horror directors directing superhero films. James Wan directed Aquaman, and David F. Sandberg directed Shazam which became box office hits and critically acclaimed.
HBO Max is set to launch in May 2020, with DC films being in it! We’re eager to wait who will star in the Green Lantern series!
