“It’s going to span several decades on focus on two stories about Green Lanterns on Earth” as well as one in space “going into the Sinestro story,” said the programming boss Wednesday. Sinestro is a former Green Lantern Corps member who was dishonorably discharged for abusing his power. He is the archenemy of Hal Jordan and founder of the Sinestro Corps.
Berlanti co-wrote the Martin Campbell-directed 2011 feature film, but at a cost of $200 million, the pic was a flop grossing just under $220M worldwide. Sinestro in the movie was played by Mark Strong.
Berlanti has a deal with Warner Bros TV worth $400M in cash guarantees.
