There have been numerous green lantern projects announced and shelved over the past 10 years since 2011’s Green Lantern. It looks like one of those projects is finally coming to fruition with HBO Max’s Green Lantern series. And the first major Green Lantern for the show has now been cast according to deadline. Finn Wittrock has been cast as Guy Gardner.
Guy Gardner was first introduced in the comics as the backup for main earth Green Lantern Hal Jordan. He has since become a major Green Lantern, been a member of the Justice League and is one of the 4 Corpsmen(Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner). Guy is known to be a bit of a hot head, proving proficient with a Red Lantern ring(powered by anger) in addition to his traditional green ring. Guy is set to play a major role in the HBO Max series.
