HBO Max’s upcoming “Green Lantern” series is eyeing actor Jeremy Irvine for the role of Alan Scott.
Irvine would join Finn Wittrock in the series, who has been cast in the lead role of Guy Gardner. HBO Max declined to comment. Variety was first to report the news.
Obviously this version of Alan Scott is based on the Earth-2 creation by James Robinson and Nicola Scott.
The series’ story spans decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with Scott, and then heading to 1984 with cocky alpha male Gardner and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.
Jeremy Irvin earned praises for his debut performance as Albert Narracott in War Horse, directed by Steven Spielberg. He has appeared in movies such as Now Is Good, Stonewall, Billionaire Boys Club, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, The Last Full Measure, and more. His television credits include Life Bites and the action drama series Treadstone.
