HBO Max is here baby! Granted, all the things people are really excited for are definitely not here yet, but that comes with patience. You’ll get your Friends, Gossip Girl, Boondocks and of course Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Eventually. Probably all by first quarter next year. While we wait for Greg Berlanti’s Green Lantern to kick into pre-production, can we address the elephant in the room? The DC Universe streaming service is making HBO looks BAD. We gotta kill it. Kill it now.
With HBO Max set to launch in less than 24 hours, the press can’t stop talking about it. Speaking to Business Insider, HBO Max Content Chief Kevin Reilly dropped a little nugget for us Green Lantern fans desperate for information. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 is a prestige format comic book, available at local comic retailers and digital retailers beginning on June 23. Below are the creative teams involved in making this spectacular issue happen!
Manhunters, alien races, rings of power—it’s a lot for the people of Earth to absorb. Especially when an interplanetary incident forces their protector, Hal Jordan, to leave on a rescue mission that results in the discovery that there’s a new player in the galaxy: Yellow Lanterns! In this sequel to Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman’s bestselling 2018 original graphic novel Green Lantern Earth One, Hal Jordan and John Stewart must team up to save the galaxy from an invading force!
Conscripted into service, the Yellow Lanterns are uniformly made up of inhabitants of the planet Qward, located in the parallel dimension where the Guardian “fled” to escape the Manhunters long ago. While they seem a benign force for peace, Jordan can’t get comfortable with how much power they wield, or their bizarre, lockstep behavior. When fellow Earthling John Stewart ends up with a yellow ring, he and Hal must work together to confront the being who destroyed the original Green Lantern Corps—the last surviving Guardian.
Director Zack Snyder announced the news on a live Q&A Wednesday, following a virtual screening of his Henry Cavill-led Superman film “Man of Steel.” The WarnerMedia streaming service, HBO Max, launches in just a week from today on May 27th.
