First ‘Green Lantern’ Cast As Finn Wittrock Signs On To Play Guy Gardner In HBO Max Series



After what seems like forever and a lifetime ago since the show was announced, we finally have some solid casting news on HBO Max’s Green Lantern series.

American Horror Story and Ratched actor Finn Wittrock will play Guy Gardner in HBO Max’s Green Lantern series.

Guy Gardner is the second Green Lantern to be chosen from Earth. He is one of the Lantern Corps greatest warriors. His reputation as an asshole has followed him around for years, but he never lets that get in his way, he knows what he’s doing is right, even when his colleagues disapprove of his offensiveness tendencies. He’s unpredictable, and when it comes to characters, he’s a bit like Martin Riggs from Lethal Weapon, a wild attitude to boot and an unwillingness to listen to rules, but his skills, his determination to never back down, Gardners one of the best Lanterns in the universe.

The show is written by Arroverse executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and one of the many Flash directors that departed the film Seth Grahame-Smith.

Green Lantern will follow a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favourites to never-before-seen heroes.

Berlanti, Guggenheim and Grahame-Smith executive produce with (racist and abusive enabler) Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter, David Madden and David Katzenberg; Elizabeth Hunter and Sara Saedi co-executive produce.
