The show will depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man — and many more. The series will also include fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and will also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps.

I assume it'll be for flashbacks.
When the Green Lantern television series debuts on HBO Max, it will have the production values of a feature film according to producer Marc Guggenheim.
During the [email protected] event, Guggenheim briefly discussed the series during a live stream on YouTube. "I happen to believe -- and this is not a universally held opinion -- that you can't do a ten-hour show or an eight-episode show, like an 8-hour movie," he explained "I don't think that works. You've got to look at it with a different tempo than you would have in a two-hour movie. That being said, certainly the show for HBO Max that we're all working on, we are approaching it with the production ambitions of a movie. So we're writing it like a TV show but we're hoping to produce it like a film.".........
Terence Winter has stepped down as writer, executive producer and showrunner of HBO Max’s upcoming Batman drama series over creative differences, Deadline has confirmed.
The streamer this past summer gave a series commitment to the project, a companion to Warner Bros. movie franchise from The Batman filmmaker Matt Reeves, The Batman producer Dylan Clark and Warner Bros Television.
The series, set in the world Reeves is creating for The Batman feature, is designed to build upon the film’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. Focused on the Gotham police department, the series will extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad complex characters of Gotham.
Reeves in August said that the series is a prequel to his Batman Year Two movie, with the show set in Batman Year One when a “masked vigilante…starts to unsettle the city”. The series will zero in on the city’s corruption that “goes back many years” and is told from the POV of a crooked cop, Reeves said in August.

Terence Winter Exits ‘The Batman’ HBO Max TV Serieshttps://deadline.com/2020/11/terence-winter-exits-the-batman-hbo-max-tv-series-1234617022/
Civil war will officially be waged at HBO Max: The streamer has handed a limited-series order to DMZ, an adaptation of the DC comic book series by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli.
Initially ordered to pilot in October 2019, the four-part DMZ series is set during a second American civil war that leaves Manhattan a demilitarized zone (DMZ), destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world. Rosario Dawson (Marvel’s Luke Cage) stars as fearless and fierce medic Alma Ortega, who sets out on a harrowing journey to find the son she lost at the war’s onset. Meanwhile, Parco Delgado (Star‘s Benjamin Bratt), the popular and deadly leader of a powerful gang in the DMZ, wants to rule this new world — and will stop at nothing to secure that outcome.
Throughout the series, “Alma must contend with the gangs, militias, demagogues and warlords that control this lawless no man’s land,” the logline reads. “In doing so, she becomes the unlikely source of what everyone here has lost: hope.”
Roberto Patino (Westworld, Sons of Anarchy) will serve as showrunner and executive-produce with Ava DuVernay (When They See Us); DuVernay also directed the pilot episode. The cast also includes Hoon Lee (Banshee), Freddy Miyares (When They See Us) and Jordan Preston Carter (The Haves and the Have Nots).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this epic to the screen with my boundary-pushing partners at WBTV and HBO Max, a sublime cast led by Rosario and Benjamin, and my partner and friend, the inimitable and ever-inspiring Ava DuVernay,” Patino said in a statement. “DMZ offers up an explosive playground which, more than anything else, exalts the resilience of community and the human spirit. I can’t wait to welcome the die-hard fans of the comic books and new viewers alike to this intoxicating, haunting and inspiring world.”

Superman lands in an oil field in Ireland (which is in Europe, in case you didn't know). He then proceeds to blow up the oil field while trying to defeat the bad guy. And this explains why we no longer have oil fields, I presume

Well a hero set in London seems like a certainty anyway; it's the last Hollywood producers "foreign locale" of choice alongside Paris.. Hmmm where else... guess it depends on what markets are worth placating.

Well as long as their research on Ireland improves if a previous post I made is anything to go by. The issue is from 2012.
Giri/Haji creator Joe Barton is heading to Gotham to take over showrunning duties on HBO Max’s upcoming The Batman TV series.
The British writer has joined the series as showrunner and exec producer following the departure of Terence Winter in November.
It was understood that the Boardwalk Empire creator left the series, which is a companion to Matt Reeves Batman feature film, over creative differences.
Barton is best known for creating Tokyo and London-set crime drama Giri/Haji for Netflix and the BBC. He also wrote on AMC and Channel 4 sci-fi drama Humans and Netflix and BBC epic drama Troy: Fall of a City. Other projects include Sky thriller Extinction and an adaptation of Sally Green’s Half Bad with Andy Serkis for Netflix.....
With the recent migration over to HBO Max, as well as a revival with a new comic series, Batman: The Animated Series has been making quite the resurgence. According to Kevin Smith, this continuation of the beloved animated show might carry on with the possibility of a new season being in the works for release on HBO Max.
In last Saturday’s episode of the podcast Fatman Beyond, co-hosts Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin talked briefly about the rumor regarding a new season of B:TAS, with Smith playing coy about its validity.

I'd actually be fine if this was it now for Snyder and DC. I'm so glad the guy got closure with a film that I'd but on par with Endgame bar the latter having one of the best scenes of the whole genre.
But having read Snyder's plans for sequels, I think it's going to be too far down the rabbit hole. For Superman in particular I just don't want to see that story come to fruition.
However I wouldn't say no to a Leto/Affleck showpiece on HBO Max because they both just seem to *get* the dynamic between the characters. Ideally it would be a different timeline to the Knightmare one but I'd even watch that.
