Green Lantern: Lee Toland Krieger tapped to direct first two episodes of HBO Max’s upcoming series

For many of us (or me at least), it’s hard not to be skeptical about the existence of HBO Max’s upcoming Green Lantern series. I mean, sure, it was announced all the way back in October of 2019. But even taking the pandemic into account, news about the the series has been pretty sparse.

On Thursday, however, Denise Petski of Deadline.com reported that Lee Toland Krieger has been signed to direct the first two episodes. This follows right on the heels of last month’s announcement of Finn Wttrock being cast as Guy Gardner.

Guy Gardner (DC Comics)

If you don’t read DC Comics and have no idea who that is, then you’re not alone. Thankfully, we’ll all be scouring wikipedia as the show airs together. The upcoming series is set to feature a ton of Green Lanterns beyond Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart. The official show description reads:

Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

So yeah–definitely count me as a big time Marvel fan who finds myself unexpectedly interested in this project.

Alla Scott (DC Comics)

As for Krieger, he’s no stranger to the DC Universe, having directed a pair of ‘Superman and Lois‘ episodes. Let’s hope he can help HBO find the same winning formula they had with their other recent (and wildly successful) DC Comic property.
