Arrow Producer Brings Green Lantern Series & DC Anthology To HBO Max
HBO Max is launching next spring into an increasingly crowded streaming space. However, HBO Max is already looking to shore up its originals with two new DC shows. Via Entertainment Weekly, Arrow producer Greg Berlanti is developing a “Green Lantern inspired series” and Strange Adventures, an anthology series.
“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television,” said Berlanti via a statement. “An anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist, and, in what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series, but I can’t reveal any more about that just yet.”
Strange Adventures will feature several superheroes from the DC Universe, including Adam Strange. According to EW, the series will also tell “close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and super-humans.” There are certainly no shortage of cosmic heroes to choose from. Additionally, the large cast of Green Lanterns means there plenty of options for that show as well.
Berlanti is also an executive producer on The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, and Black Lightning for The CW. For DC Universe, he produces Titans, Doom Patrol, and Stargirl. Additionally, is developing spinoffs for Superman and Lois Lane as well as Green Arrow and the Canaries. Berlanti was also a co-writer on the 2011 Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds. It’s unclear if the new Green Lantern series will impact the long-in-development Green Lantern Corps movie.
