GREEN LANTERN Character Breakdowns Reveal New Details On Guy Gardner, Bree Jarta, & Alan Scott
Breakdowns for three of the ring-slinging heroes that'll feature in the upcoming Green Lantern HBO Max series have been shared online, and they provide detailed descriptions of the main characters...
As more details on the upcoming HBO Max Green Lantern series from Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim continue to find their way online, we now have a better idea of the three ring-slinging heroes who'll receive the lion's share of the spotlight.
Previous reports have indicated that the show will feature several members of the GL Corps, including Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Kilowog, but these descriptions (via the Illuminerdi) suggest that the focus will be placed primarily on Guy Gardner, Alan Scott, and an original character we only recently learned would be introduced in the series, Bree Jarta.
Guy Gardner: White Male, 30’s. A hulking mass of masculinity, as rendered in the comics. Guy is a personification of the hyper-patriotism found in the 1980’s that birthed Hulk Hogan and Rambo. However, Guy is still likable. He might act foolish, but he is not a fool. Guy loves his daughter and wife with all of his hard-partying, fast driving, hot tempered heart. But like many alpha males, there is a deep undercurrent of pain driving it all.
Bree Jarta: Black, Female, 30’s. Few Lanterns take their commitment to the Corps and its purpose more seriously than Bree. Bree is half-human and it’s the half she’s worked hard to forget. Bree has an alien mother and a human father. However, she was raised on a more enlightened planet with an advanced society. Bree outworked her peers and earner her Ring only to find herself partnered with Guy Gardner.
Alan Scott: White Male, 28 years old. From the outside, Alan is the model of early 1940’s. The image of a G-Man. Alan is handsome, clean-shaven and well dressed without a hair out of place. He has spent his young life trying to personify truth, justice, and the American Way. He is already a household name in L.A. and is seen as hero thanks to positive press coverage. However, for all of Alan’s honesty, there is one huge lie that follows him. He is a gay man. A fact that, in his era, could cost him his job, or even his life.
There are some interesting details here for sure, including the reveal that Gardner and Jarta will be partnered-up. This suggests that the show may retain elements of the "buddy cop" tone earlier incarnations of the project were said to have.
The Alan Scott breakdown might also confirm a recent rumor that the series will span multiple time periods.
What do you guys make of these descriptions? Green Lantern will reportedly commence production next April.
