After Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story), cast as Guy Gardner for the series Green Lantern, another actor is said to be about to join the cast of the series. According to The Hollywood Reporter and The Illuminerdi, Jeremy Irvine would have been chosen to play Alan Scott, the first character to be named Green Lantern. He made his debut in 1940, so he was the sole incarnation of the superhero before DC chose to put Hal Jordan in the role. Eventually, Alan Scott was reintroduced into the story, only he was attached to Earth-two while Hal Jordan is from Earth-one. If this casting information is true, Jeremy Irvine will allow another openly gay superhero to evolve on the small screen after Batwoman.
As a reminder, the synopsis of the series Green Lantern, expected on HBO Max, is the following: “Green Lantern reinvents classic DC ownership through a story spanning decades and galaxies, starting on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and in 1984 , along with arrogant alpha male Guy Gardner and demi-alien Bree Jarta. They will be joined by a host of other Lanterns – from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes. “. The show written and produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow) will consist of 10 episodes. For now, we don’t know when Green Lantern will be unveiled to the public but HBO Max has already revealed the start date of filming!
