‘Green Lantern’ Series Casts Openly Gay Lantern Alan Scott

The HBO Max Green Lantern series continues to add to its cast with the addition of Jeremy Irvine (Treadstone) as Alan Scott, per The Hollywood Reporter. Scott has been around as a Lantern for decades, but the original ring wearer was most recently reintroduced in 2012 as a gay man with a boyfriend, one of the most visible LGBTQIA characters in DC Comics. We have yet to receive confirmation on whether this is the version of the character that Irvine will be playing. Finn Wittrock will play Guy Gardner in the ten episode series that will introduce numerous Lanterns.
