It looks like Green Lantern is all the rage again. Just recently, Zack Snyder revealed the first image of his original vision of Wayne T. Carr as John Stewart. Sadly, his original vision got cut by Warner Bros. and he gave a stronger focus on Martian Manhunter. Still, it doesn’t mean that the strong-willed galactic peace force won’t be seen again. DC and HBO Max have major plans for them, as a series is in development that will explore the various timelines and members of the space cops. It looks like the next casting is just around the corner, as Illuminerdi is reporting that HBO Max is eyeing Jeremy Irvine to play Alan Scott.
He doesn’t have the role yet, but he seems to be their preferred candidate. Illuminerdi also found out that it is pitched as a one-year deal unlike his future co-star Finn Wittrock, who was recently cast as Guy Gardner. Now, this doesn’t spell the end for the character but rather Irvine‘s version. In the comics, people commonly look at Scott as a veteran superhero holding the mantle of Green Lantern. There is a chance that we are introduced to a younger version in the first season and he is aged up in future entries. The series will span multiple histories and characters. We have no idea how long Alan Scott will be on-screen, as his story may act as a prelude for the rest of the season. Hopefully, we’ll get more details as official castings are announced.
