Superman and Lois Director Will Take on HBO Max’s Green Lantern

Earlier this year, director Lee Toland Krieger’s work on the pilot episode of Superman and Lois won acclaim from fans and critics. Now, Deadline is reporting that Krieger has signed on to direct the first two episodes of HBO Max’s Green Lantern series.

Krieger also directed the second episode of Superman and Lois, which helped set the tone for that series. Additionally, Krieger helmed the first three episodes of Riverdale, as well as the first two episodes of Netflix’s You, Shadow and Bone, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Krieger has also directed the films The Age of Adaline and Celeste & Jesse Forever.

Green Lantern will take place across various eras, including the 1940s with Alan Scott, Earth’s first Green Lantern. Jeremy Irvine will portray Scott as a closeted gay man who is both a FBI Agent and a costumed hero.

In 1984, the series will also pick up with Finn Wittrock’s Guy Gardne and a half-alien Green Lantern, Bree Jarta. Several other Green Lanterns will be featured in the series, both from the comics and a few original heroes.

Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Seth Grahame-Smith are the creative team behind Green Lantern. Geoff Johns, a longtime writer on the Green Lantern comics, will also executive produce the series.
