Los Angeles, Oct 10 (PTI) Streaming platform HBO Max has given 10-episode series order to “Green Lantern” with Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim attached as writers.
Grahame-Smith is best known for his work on “The Lego Batman” movie, while Guggenheim is co-creator of “Arrow” and has served as a writer on the 2011 “Green Lantern” movie starring Ryan Reynolds.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the DC Comics adaptation will depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz.
Alan Scott was the original Green Lantern, first created in 1940; following recent comic book interpretations of the character, the TV show version will be a gay man.
