Warner Bros’ HBO Max is the new streaming service coming over the horizon . And on their slate of new shows, is an intergalactic ‘Green Lantern’ series, along with ‘Strange Adventures,’ a superhero anthology show.
Both live-action shows will be produced by Greg Berlanti, papa to CW’s Arrow-verse. And Berlanti had this to say in a press release…
“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television. An anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist, and, in what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series, but I can’t reveal any more about that just yet.”
– So we don’t know which Green Lanterns will be featured. And does this mean that the ‘Green Lantern Corps’ ISN’T heading to the big screen?
Meanwhile, Strange Adventures will feature characters from across the DC canon. According to an HBO Max press release, the TV show will be a one-hour drama series that will explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans.
But what about DC Universe? You know, Warner Bros ‘other’ streaming service. HBO Max seems to be barking up their tree. So does this mean, that at some point, the two will become one? Berlanti is also producing Titans on DC Universe. And just for the record, I’m not against a merger. I just want to know.
*And don’t forget that Greg Berlanti also co-wrote and produced the Green Lantern failed feature. Is this his chance to right that wrong?
