Hal Jordan & John Stewart To Lead ‘Lanterns’ Series For HBO Max
James Gunn’s DC slate has finally been announced, and one exciting group it will bring to the forefront is the Green Lanterns. Hal Jordan and John Stewart will headline their own buddy cop series titled Lanterns in the new interconnected universe.
The Green Lantern Corps. has taken a back seat in DC’s previous live-action adaptations since the 2011 feature film starring Ryan Reynolds. But now it seems they will take part in the beginning of this new DC Universe being planned by Gunn.
First introduced in 1959’s Showcase #22, Hal Jordan was created by John Broome and Gil Kane. A reinvention of the original 1940s superhero of the same name, Jordan was a test pilot drafted into an intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps. The character became a founding member of the Justice League and has been at the forefront of the DC Universe.
Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams later introduced John Stewart in 1971’s Green Lantern #87. Initially created as a substitute Green Lantern, Stewart has since become a primary character in the Lantern mythos and has even gone on to lead the corps.
Lanterns was described as a True Detective style story with an underlying mystery that Jordan and Stewart will investigate.
