Is new DC Leisure head honcho James Gunn already making strikes? The Hollywood Reporter says no, nevertheless it definitely feels well timed that someday after the announcement that Gunn would head up all issues DC for Warner Bros. Discovery that the long-in-development Inexperienced Lantern TV sequence would pivot to star John Stewart, greatest identified for starring within the animated Justice League sequence.

Weirdly, it appears the Greg Berlanti-produced sequence wasn’t allowed to make use of Stewart, though the zillion different Lanterns have been up for grabs. From THR: “Sources say the character of John Stewart was off the desk to producers who envisioned the present as specializing in the primary Inexperienced Lantern, the brazenly homosexual Alan Scott, and Man Gardner in addition to a ‘multitude of different Lanterns—from comedian guide favorites to never-before-seen heroes.’ With DC Comics topper Walter Hamada’s current exit, a choice was made to start out over and construct the present round John Stewart, the character who first appeared within the early Nineteen Seventies and was modeled after Sidney Poitier.” Whereas Man Gardner is enjoyable as a result of he’s a jerk, Alan Scott is a Golden Age hero who’s hardly ever been explored, and Hal Jordan’s “persona” might greatest be outlined as “square-jawed,” so I believe this transfer is for one of the best.

Seth Grahame-Smith, who was performing as showrunner and had apparently completed eight full scripts for the sequence, has departed the venture. The fates of actors Finn Wittrock and Jeremy Irvine, who had been solid as Gardner and Scott respectively, are unknown, and neither is seemingly signed to the present.
