Seth Grahame-Smith was announced as writer and showrunner on the upcoming series on Friday (9 October). He will be joined in the writing department by Marc Guggenhein, co-creator of Arrow, Deadline reports.
Green Lantern is actually the name of several superheroes who have appeared in DC Comics since 1940. Each one uses a magical ring that grants them special powers.
It has been confirmed that the new HBO Max series will feature Earth’s first Green Lantern, Alan Scott – and, like in the Earth-2 comics, he will be openly gay.
