GREEN LANTERN Finds Director In Lee Toland Krieger; Jeremy Irvine Confirms Alan Scott Role

The upcoming Green Lantern HBO Max series has enlisted Superman and Lois director Lee Toland Krieger to helm the first two episodes. Plus, Jeremy Irvine has commented on joining the cast as Alan Scott.

Lee Toland Krieger, who helmed the Superman and Lois pilot for The CW, has signed on to direct the first two episodes of the upcoming Green Lantern HBO Max series from Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim.

Krieger has previously directed features such as Celeste & Jesse Forever and The Age of Adaline before moving to TV. In addition to Superman and Lois, he helmed the pilot and several episodes for Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Prodigal Son, Shadow and Bone and Deadly Class.

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, and we recently heard that Jeremy Irvine was in talks to play Alan Scott in the '40s.

The War Horse actor has since confirmed his casting via Instagram.

Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz and a new alien Lantern named Bree Jarta will also feature, so keep an eye out for casting news in the coming weeks. A recent character breakdown seemingly confirmed that the villainous Sinestro will factor into the story.

Green Lantern is scheduled to commence production this summer in LA.
