There’s a lot of excitement around the upcoming Green Lantern series over at HBO Max. According to a new report from THR, we now have a name to attach to one of the main lanterns in the series, Guy Gardner. According to the report, Gardner will be played by American Horror Story star, Finn Wittrock.
Here’s the official description of Gardner:
“a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.“
The report went on to mention that we should be getting Alan Scott casting news any day now and that filming is set to begin this year.
Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.
