HBO Max's Green Lantern Lands Superman And Lois Director Lee Toland Krieger For Two Episodes

The show's first season will feature 10 hour-long episodes.


Lee Toland Krieger (Superman & Lois, Riverdale) will reportedly be directing the pilot and second episode of HBO Max's upcoming Green Lantern, according to Deadline. Back in January, the show was ordered to series, and Green Lantern's first season will consist of 10 hour-long episodes.

The new show is quickly filling out its cast and crew. On Instagram, Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) recently revealed that he will be playing Alan Scott in the series. Additionally, back in April, it was announced that Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story) will star as Guy Gardner--other cast announcements are still forthcoming.

The upcoming TV series will be written and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Seth Grahame-Smith. Joining them are EPs Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter, David Katzenberg, and David Madden.

In somewhat related news, earlier this year, actor Ryan Reynolds sat down to watch his much-maligned superhero movie Green Lantern for the first time and was shocked to learn he actually liked it. While Reynolds never shies away from an opportunity to be self-deprecating, the star also used the running commentary as an opportunity to promote his gin brand, Aviation Gin. Many of Reynolds' tweets were gently mocking of his performance, picking on the difficulty of acting "while being attacked by invisible space energy" and his use of the "Christian Bale superhero voice."

HBO Max continues to build its catalog of original series, recently adding Warrior Season 3 to the service and a revival of the sitcom Head of the Class.
