Green Lantern: DC’s new reboot, everything we know so far
For over eighty years, the Green Lantern has been one of DC Comics' iconic superheroes. The character has undergone many transformations, with different people taking on the role of the character. Despite its rich history, the 2011 movie "Green Lantern," starring Ryan Reynolds, was a flop, leaving fans wondering what the future holds for the character.
But the wait is over as DC Studios' creative heads, James Gunn and Peter Safran, recently announced an exciting new slate of TV shows and films as part of their revamped DCEU. All of these new projects are set to form the first phase of the revamped DC Universe, named Chapter 1: Gods & Monsters.
During a recent private press event, James Gunn and Peter Safran unveiled an impressive list of new film and TV projects for the rebooted DCEU under this chapter. This exciting news includes the much-anticipated Green Lantern series, which is sure to get fans of the character buzzing with excitement.
Since taking over creative operations at DC Studios in 2022, Gunn and Safran have been hard at work reinvigorating the DC Universe. With this new slate of projects, they aim to bring a fresh and exciting take on these iconic characters to both new and old fans alike.
What do we know from official reports?
DC Comics recently posted an update on their official Twitter account regarding the highly anticipated Green Lantern reboot.
The new TV series, called Lanterns, will focus on the beloved characters and detectives Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Fans are eagerly anticipating the series, hoping to see their favorite characters brought to life in a new and exciting way.
In addition to sharing updates on their official Twitter account, DC Comics also made the announcement on their official Instagram account.
While there isn't much information available yet, it has been suggested that the upcoming television series, Lanterns, will have similar themes and tone to the well-known crime drama, True Detective. It's worth noting that the character has the potential to succeed in a film, given his high recognition as a hero in the DC Comics universe.
However, the character may need a fresh approach and possibly even a new persona, as Hal Jordan's traditional portrayal could come across as too ordinary for today's audience.
