With a live-action Green Lantern TV series long since announced to be a part of the HBO Max streaming service, now comes an update on one particular character who’ll be a key part of the show.
Speaking at the TCA press tour, HBO’s Sarah Aubrey revealed that the small screen offering will span several decades and will largely focus on “two stories about Green Lanterns on Earth” – in addition to revealing that the series will delve “into the Sinestro story.”
While it’s unclear just which Emerald Knights will be featured in this to-be-title series – with Hal Jordan, John Stewart, and Guy Gardner early frontrunners to appear – but this latest news at least confirms that Sinestro will be a part of proceedings.
Sinestro was at one point in time the very best Green Lantern of them all… until his own ego and arrogance got the better of him and he ended up becoming the leader of the fear-driven Sinestro Corps. The character himself has previously appeared in live-action as played by Mark Strong in 2011’s Green Lantern.
As ever, expert more on this Green Lantern series as it continues to develop.
