GREEN LANTERN: HBO Max Series Eyeing Jeremy Irvine For Alan Scott; New Character Details Revealed

We know that Finn Wittrock will play Guy Gardner in the Green Lantern series coming to HBO Max, and it appears the streaming service is now zeroing in on Jeremy Irvine (Treadstone) to play Alan Scott...

The Illuminerdi is reporting that British actor Jeremy Irvine (Treadstone, War Horse) is potentially closing in on the role of Alan Scott in HBO Max's Green Lantern TV series. However, the site reveals that, unlike Finn Wittrock as Guy Gardner, it's likely to be a one-year deal (a sign, perhaps, that Alan's history as a Lantern will only be explored for a single season). 

Characters like Bree Jarta, Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz, and Sinestro are all expected to factor into the show in some capacity, but Guy and Alan are the two leads.

It remains unclear whether the HBO Max series will tie into the Green Lantern Corps movie that revolves around Hal Jordan and John Stewart. However, the site has shared some intel on the approach Green Lantern is taking to how Scott will be portrayed here. 

"White Male, 28 years old. From the outside, Alan is the model of early 1940’s. The image of a G-Man. Alan is handsome, clean-shaven and well dressed without a hair out of place," reads the character description. "He has spent his young life trying to personify truth, justice, and the American Way."

"He is already a household name in L.A. and is seen as hero thanks to positive press coverage. However, for all of Alan’s honesty, there is one huge lie that follows him. He is a gay man. A fact that, in his era, could cost him his job, or even his life."

In the comic books, the source of Alan Scott's powers as Green Lantern was a lamp that fell to Earth thousands of years ago rather than a Green Lantern Corps ring that chose him for his willpower. How the series intends to explore that concept remains to be seen, but there's clearly a reason his story is being told, and we're willing to bet it ties into Guy's 1980s set adventures. 

Green Lantern doesn't have a confirmed premiere date, so keep checking back for updates.
