    We figured DC's most biggest-budgeted show to date would probably warrant its own forum, especially now that it's moving full steam ahead.

    So new forum, new discussion thread.

    This is dumb, but one thing I hope this show includes that wasn't in the movie was the Sector Houses. We only get brief glimpses of them in the comics, but they fascinate me! Like, space apartment complexes/spaceports/jails/Lantern hangouts? Do they have laundry rooms and recreational facilities? I need to know!

    I’d be surprised if Cruz isn’t somewhere in the plans.

    I mean, Deadline’s description of Guy was a word-for-word match for the lead character breakdowns we got a few months ago, and those included Jessica as one of the leads, so I don’t see why we shouldn’t expect her to be cast soon. Simon Baz, too.

    It was Alan Scott in the 40’s, Guy Gardner and Bree Jarta (original character) in the 80’s, and Jessica and Simon in modern day. Plus Sinestro as a regular, in what period, who knows.

    The way I read the opening post made me think the Lanterns Alan and Guy would be joined by would be in their eras. Now I can see how that can be more opened ended then I originally read it, so goooood. :D

    I think it would be kinda cool if Sinestro were present in all the eras - like, as a young newbie in Alan Scott’s era, as “The Greatest of All Lanterns” in Guy’s era, and then as a villain in Jessica/Simon’s.

    He’s not human so his age doesn’t have to be an issue.

    in some ways yea splitting the lanterns by different eras is a great idea but also makes it hard to cross them over.

    Yea that sinister idea sounds great. Sounds wrong without Hal though

    I think eventually we will get Hal and John on this show since I don’t think that Green Lantern Corps movie is ever happening.

    Does anyone think this’ll be a one and done season? Or maybe the movie is still in the works and they’ll connect the show with the movie?

    Can DC please put a ban on new Earth Lanterns? Even if they are half/half. Just, we dont need anymore. I guess the good thing about putting this into different decades is Bree/Guy possibly not being active during Jessica/SImon and everyone else.

    Not to be random, but Alan Richtson could have made a decent Guy Gardner haha. I'm not even sure I've heard of the guy they cast for the role, how is everyone feeling about him as Gardner?

    He doesn't look like Guy, but he's a good actor who naturally gives off a smarmy kind of vibe (which is why I've never been able to get behind him being fancast as characters like Superman or Nightwing), so I think he's actually a pretty good fit for Guy in that sense.

    Though I wish he was able to get a 2nd go as a tv Aquaman

    Edit: NVM! You're talking about Finn and not Alan Richtson lol.

    Lol yes, I was referring to Finn.

    Alan Ritchson's got too much of a golden boy look for Guy to me. I could easier see him as Alan Scott. I personally imagine a live-action Guy to look more like a Rob Kazinsky type.

    She is. The lead characters, at least in Season 1, will be Guy, Simon Baz, Alan Scott, and Jessica Cruz.

    I hope Sinestro doesn’t die in this. If they are planning to make a movie (and actually follow through with it) Sinestro needs to face off against Hal. I don’t even care if they end up killing each other and John and/or Kyle carry on in the sequels. But Sinestro is Hal’s arch enemy. It’s really going to bother me if they sidestep that entirely.

    Can’t wait to see how this turns out. I hope they have a huge vision for it

    They better not **** up on the costumes. I seriously wonder if the reason Berlanti wanted to use Guy Gardner is because it presents an opportunity to put another superhero in a goddamn leather jacket.

    Imagine if they CGI the costumes again and still give Guy his silly little jacket. That'd be hilarious.
