HBO Max’s live-action Green Lantern series will no longer follow openly gay hero Alan Scott.

Back in 2020, Arrowverse creator Greg Berlanti announced the highly anticipated show during the HBO Max WarnerMedia Day in 2019.

At the time, the Riverdale producer said the show would be “unlike anything seen on television.”

The following year, HBO Max’s Head of Original Content, Sarah Aubrey, said that the 10-episode series would take place over a “span of several decades” and follow the adventures of an array of Green Lanterns, including Guy Gardner and Alan Scott.

In April 2021, Variety announced that American Horror Story star Finn Wittrock secured the role of Gardner – which he later confirmed on Instagram.

“Beyond excited to join the Green Lantern universe as Guy Gardner. Coming to HBO Max in the not-too-distant future,” he wrote.

The following month, reports revealed that British actor Jeremy Irvine joined the series as Scott – who was set to be reimagined as a closeted federal agent from 1941.

However despite numerous development updates, it now looks like the series is headed down a different path.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will no longer feature Scott and Gardner in lead roles and will instead follow another Green Lantern, John Stewart.

The move comes a few weeks after the head of the DC Extended Universe, Walter Hamada, left the company – which spawned a “creative haul” of the series.

The news outlet also revealed that because of the “regime changes” at Warner Bros Discovery, Warner Bros Television and DC Comics, the show’s writer and showrunner, Seth Grahame-Smith, exited the project.

Prior to his departure, the industry creative reportedly completed eight out of ten scripts for the series.

While the show has undergone an onslaught of changes, Berlanti and his production company, Berlanti Productions, are still attached to produce the project.

Here’s to hoping that Scott will appear in the revamped Green Lantern series in some capacity.
