HBO Max Green Lantern Series Reportedly Cancelled By Warner Bros.

The planned Green Lantern series might no longer be moving forward. A new report claims that Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios has pulled the plug on the series that would have focused on John Stewart.

The intel comes from industry insider DanielRPK who claims that the series has been cancelled for undisclosed reasons (via CBR). However, the tweet suggests that DC Studios head James Gunn has "bigger plans for the Lanterns" and might be working on a completely different project.

Although the tweet has since been deleted, the possible cancellation would no longer be a huge surprise for fans, especially after Warner Bros. pulled the plug on major projects like Wonder Woman 3 and Man of Steel 2. If the Green Lantern series is no longer moving forward, it would be another casualty of the studio's new plans for the future.

The Green Lantern series was initially set to feature the Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, and Simon Baz versions of Green Lantern. Finn Wittrock and Jeremy Irvine had been confirmed to play Gardner and Scott, respectively while Seth Grahame-Smith will serve as showrunner. However, a later report reveals that the show was being redeveloped to be a solo project that would focus on John Stewart.

For now, Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios have not yet made an official announcement about the cancellation. Likewise, James Gunn has yet to comment on the report. In the meantime, we're hoping that the Green Lantern series is still being developed and we'll get an update soon. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

It was previously reported that the rumored Man of Steel 2 will not be moving forward and Henry Cavill has since confirmed that he will not be returning as Superman. Likewise, Wonder Woman 3 has been cancelled and Gal Gadot may no longer reprise her role as Diana Prince.
