HBO Max’s Alan Scott Reveals His Costume Concerns

Green Lantern star Jeremy Irvine jokes about squeezing into Alan Scott’s skintight superhero costume for the upcoming HBO Max DC series.

Green Lantern star Jeremy Irvine recently revealed his concerns about suiting up as Alan Scott in the upcoming HBO Max series.

Irvine joked about squeezing into the outfit of DC’s very first Green Lantern in an interview with Metro. “I have not [tried on my costume] yet, “he said.” As far as I know, there’s not a firm start date yet. But when they offered me the role, they did say it was going to be about two or three months to make the outfit. Now they’re gonna have to fit my paunch into it. “

Irvine confirmed reports he would play Alan Scott in Green Lantern in May 2021. The English actor shared a photo of himself on Instagram alongside an illustration of Scott taken from one of the superhero’s many comic book appearances. The post was captioned “Very excited to be joining the DC Universe !! Can’t wait to get started,” along with the Green Lantern oath.

A month earlier, American Horror Story star Finn Wittrock was confirmed to portray Guy Gardner, another superhero who operates under the Green Lantern alias. Soon after the news broke, Wittrock revealed he’s also concerned about fitting into his character’s snug crime-fighting gear. “I’ve been reading the comics so I’m very interested to see quite how skin-tight this Green Lantern suit will be because it’s sure to be … yeah so it’s not a whole lot of wiggle room in that outfit.”

Irvine and Wittrock will reportedly fight alongside Tobias Menzies’ Sinestro in the HBO Max series, although the Game of Thrones star’s involvement is not yet officially confirmed. The iconic DC supervillain was announced as one of several characters Green Lantern will focus on, with the show apparently charting his gradual descent into villainy. Other Lanterns set to show up in the series include Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz and newly-created character Bree Jarta. None of these roles have officially been cast yet.

Principal photography on Green Lantern was set to begin in April 2021, with The Lego Batman Movie co-writer Seth Grahame-Smith onboard as showrunner. Despite this, cameras have yet to roll on the HBO Max series, which may be partly due to the production’s epic scope. “That show is gigantic,” Grahame-Smith explained in an interview. “It has taken quite a bit of time to get to this point, and it’s just a big, big undertaking. It’s going really well.”

Green Lantern does not yet have an official release date.
