    I was here back when GL was first being developed. I remember reading Berlanti’s original GL script and it was ****ing amazing. 100x better than what the shooting script ended up being. Berlanti loves and understands this character and anyone that deems him a bad choice for this series is simply ignorant to the fact that his original GL script was ****ing amazing until WB started meddling with it.

    Berlanti is literally the best option for this.

    Can’t wait to see how this turns out. It’s going to be amazing. Mark my words.

    "Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television,”

    Ok I'm all in.

    Boys Geoff created such a glorious blueprint. I think this will be brilliant. Season 1 = Secret Origin?

    After Batman and Superman, this is easily my favorite superhero. Guys, I cannot ****ing wait. I’m literally so so excited.
    Been saying for a while... **** the movies! Just do tv shows! DC can’t compete.

    Superman show and a GL show? Ugh I couldn’t be happier

    just look at Flash. Ezra’s Flash is unbelievably awful and Gustin’s Flash is fantastic. I just trust the TV side more. Lower budget, yeah, but that’s not all that matters.

    I remember Berlanti's involvement in the GL movie, before he had all these TV shows. I did read positive things about the original script. I really hope you're right and I will mark your words!

    I'm honestly tired of Berlanti being given everything DC. I hope this doesnt shoot in Vancouver and is given a decent writing team.

    So is this a standalone show or connected to the Arrowverse?

    Why Berlanti!! Lindelof just did an incredible DC show on HBO, the best reviewed superhero show of all time, why not get someone of his caliber

    I’m thinking standalone is the more likely option.

    I would imagine this is standalone, potentially leaving the door open for a movie franchise if it really catches on.

    Although it seems everything "connects" to the Arrowverse now in a manner of speaking, so...

    Because it's likely nobody of his caliber cares about Green Lantern.

    Chris McQuarrie pitched a Green Lantern movie to WB and they went with this garbage instead

    Why Berlanti?

    Berlanti-involved DC shows since Arrow launched:
    Arrow (8 seasons)
    The Flash (6 seasons and counting)
    Supergirl (5 seasons and counting)
    Legends of Tomorrow (5 seasons and counting)
    Black Lightning (3 seasons and counting)
    Batwoman (1 season and counting)
    Titans (2 seasons and counting)
    Doom Patrol (2 seasons and counting)

    Future:
    Superman and Lois
    Green Arrow and the Canaries
    Green Lantern
    Strange Adventures
    Stargirl

    Non Berlanti-involved:
    Constantine (cancelled after 13 episodes)
    Swamp Thing (cancelled before the second episode aired)
    Powerless (pulled from air before all episodes even made it on TV)
    Krypton (cancelled after 20 episodes)
    Gotham (5 seasons)

    EDIT: forgot Pennyworth

    Besides the Vertigo shows and Gotham, everything they've tried without Berlanti was a MASSIVE failure.

    Berlanti keeps his shows on the air.

    Berlanti has certainly had the enthusiasm for GL for a long time. I like that's it's an HBO Max show and not CW.

    With this being on HBOMax and not the CW I am hoping they are going to go all out with the budget and the effects.

    Berlanti is also the executive producer on Titans and Doom Patrol. They play to the strengths of their services. CW shows have target demographics to meet of their own. Judging this solely because of Berlanti is a mistake considering this is an HBO Max project.

    You have zero idea as to what he pitched. His pitch could've easily been garbage.

    The guy will have at least 22 shows running simultaneously across broadcast TV, cable, streaming services, and premium cable next year.

    Like him or not, he's currently the most powerful producer on TV.
