HBO Max, the new upcoming HBO streaming service has been making some big announcements this week.
First they announced they had acquired the streaming rights to South Park for $50 million.
Now Birth, Movies, Death says that they will also feature a new, ongoing Green Lantern series. “Yes, Green Lantern is headed to HBO Max with Greg Berlanti running the show. Berlanti’s got history with this character (he was one of the writers on the screenplay for that ill-fated, Ryan Reynolds-starring Green Lantern movie) and it’ll be interesting to see what they do with the character’s mythology in a series setting. Given all the alien factions and whatnot, we can easily imagine this material sustaining a full series.”
“[Green Lantern will be] be joined by an Adam Strange anthology series called Strange Adventures.”
i09 reports, “Strange Adventures, “a DC superhero anthology…[that] will feature characters from across the DC canon.” According to an HBO Max press release, the TV show will be a “one-hour drama series [that] will explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans.” Strange Adventures is also the title of a highly-anticipated newTom King comic, which we learned more about at the recent New York City Comic Con; it will feature Adam Strange as well as other DC notables grappling with multiple realities.”
“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television,” Berlanti said in a press release. “An anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist, and, in what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series, but I can’t reveal any more about that just yet.”
