The recent axing of Batgirl has led to concerns that other upcoming DC Comics-based HBO Max projects could suffer the same fate under David Zaslav, as the Warner Bros. Discovery boss recently made it clear that he plans to prioritize theatrical releases over streaming.
While Barbara Gordon's feature debut is highly unlikely to be the last cancellation, it sounds like the upcoming live-action Green Lantern series from Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim is still on track... for the time being, at least.
An HBO Max representative has told TV Line that the series is “very much alive” and “definitely moving forward,” but probably won't hit our screens until 2024.
The DC's Strange Adventures anthology series we first heard about back in 2020 was not so lucky, however, as Kevin Smith revealed that the show has been scrapped during the latest episode of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast.
Specific plot details for the show are still under wraps, but we do know that the story will play out over multiple time-periods. Finn Wittrock will play Guy Gardner for the '80s-setting, with Jeremy Irvine on board as Alan Scott in the '40s. Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz and a new alien Lantern named Bree Jarta will also feature, but have yet to be cast (as far as we know).
Lee Toland Krieger, who helmed the Superman and Lois pilot for The CW, has signed on to direct the first two episodes.
UPDATE: It seems the solo Black Canary movie is also still in active development.
