There was no mention of the Green Lantern TV series during DC FanDome, but it remains in the works for HBO Max. Finn Wittrock has been cast as Guy Gardner, while Jeremy Irvine will take on the role of Alan Scott. Tobias Menzies, meanwhile, has been rumoured for Sinestro, and we're still waiting for news on characters like Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Kilowog, and the newly created Bree Jarta.

Collider recently caught up with showrunner Seth Grahame-Smith, and managed to get a minor update on the sheer scale of the ambitious live-action (small screen) project. 

"Yeah, that show is gigantic," the filmmaker teased. "It has taken quite a bit of time to get to this point and it’s just a big, big undertaking. It’s going really well. All I can say is that it’s going really well and there are gonna be Green Lanterns in it, and it’s gonna be on HBO Max."

As for his interest in the DC Universe, Grahame-Smith - who was once attached to helm The Flash - revealed that he wasn't big into comic books, but was introduced through the movies. "I’ll admit, I wasn’t like a huge comic book kid. I was a huge movie kid. And so, my introduction to DC Comics came through the '89 Batman movie. When that movie came out, I was like, 'Oh, my God, Batman is the coolest,' and I started reading Batman comic books."

"But Green Lantern is something that, to be honest with you, just came to me later, by way of just talking about doing the show," he added. "The possibility of doing the show led me down a deep dive of Green Lantern lore. We’ll see. It’s gonna be a while before the world gets to see that, but we are very, very busy at work, as we speak."

We're not surprised that Green Lantern is still a long way down the road, and we honestly wouldn't be shocked if the show doesn't arrive on our screens until 2023 or 2024. What that means for the long-rumoured Green Lantern Corps movie focused on Hal Jordan and John Stewart is hard to say, but it's not a project that appears to be a major priority for Warner Bros. right now.
