Fans of Green Lantern have been waiting for what feels like years for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics to give the superhero another chance on the big screen.
It’s been ages since the Ryan Reynolds version, and there were a whole host of reasons why that film didn’t work, and none of them had anything to do with the character.
One of the reasons was that they had no script and the other main reason was that the film and suit was almost entirely CGI, and it just didn’t look good at all.
That said, we’ve now got news (via We Got This Covered) that Warner Bros. and DC Comics have greenlit a Green Lantern TV show.
And no, this isn’t going to another animated TV show. This one will reportedly be live-action.
According to reports, the TV show will be brought to HBO Max after they worked out a deal with Warner Bros. which will see all DC Comics properties come to the upcoming streaming service.

This includes the likes of Titans, Swamp Thing and all of the DC Comics movies, including Joker which will also be made available to stream on the service in May 2020.
There’s a lot to be optimistic about here. Green Lantern deserves a proper shot because he truly is an interesting superhero.
The only problem is that he’s a bit too cosmic, which is expensive, and he would require quite a lot of financial backing to be done justice.
That said, it sounds like Warner Bros. is willing to put their money where their mouth is since this seems like it’s going ahead.
This comes after there were reports that Warner Bros. was looking at Bradley Cooper to star as Hal Jordan in the DCEU.
That could still be happening. We’ll just have to wait and see.
