It may take some time but we're finally getting a Green Lantern series that will bring in several Green Lanterns. But what can we expect in the upcoming HBO Max show? Marc Guggenheim has offered an interesting update on the project.
Guggenheim recently took part in Comic Con International's SAM (Storytelling Across Media) mini-conference where he briefly discussed the Green Lantern series, stating that they will be taking a different approach with production.
"I happen to believe -- and this is not a universally-held opinion -- that you can't do a ten-hour show or an eight-episode show, like an 8-hour movie," Guggenheim said. "I don't think that works. When I see it done, there's always some flabby episodes in the middle. I think you have to approach it like a TV series and approach each episode like its own entity."
"Even though it's streaming, even though hopefully people will binge it, you've got to make each episode a satisfying meal. You've got to look at it with a different tempo than you would have in a two-hour movie," he continued before confirming their approach to the Green Lantern series.
"That being said, certainly the show for HBO Max that we're all working on, we are approaching it with the production ambitions of a movie. So we're writing it like a TV show but we're hoping to produce it like a film," Guggenheim concluded.
This is exciting news knowing that each episode of the show will be truly special. Needless to say, we can't wait until the Green Lantern series begins production.
The Green Lantern show is expected to start filming next year. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
