According to the WGA website, the Hollywood Writers Guild, Damon Lindelof, from Lost and Watchmen, and Chris Mundy, from Ozark, would be writing the Green Lantern series for DC Studios, led by James Gunn. The website does not say their exact role in the production, whether they will be screenwriters, producers, or both roles. Other names linked to the project are Justin H. Britt-Gibson, known for writing the Counterpart series, Breannah Gibson, credited on the Pinguim script team, as well as Vanessa Baden Kelly, who worked on the series A Vida Sexual das Universitárias, from Max.

Lanterns is an upcoming American television series based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name. The series will be part of the first phase of DC's new expanded universe, called Gods and Monsters. The series is produced by DC Studios and will be released on Max. Responsible for playing Green Lantern, Guy Gardner, in James Gunn's Superman, Nathan Fillion will reprise the role in a Green Lantern series. James Gunn will write and direct a story focusing on a younger Clark Kent, shortly after leaving Smallville, and in his early days as a reporter in the city of Metropolis. Parallel to the beginning of his professional career, he also takes his initial steps as Superman. The film, however, is not an origin story, so we won't see Krypton exploding or the Kents discovering it.

David Corenswet plays Clark Kent/Superman, Rachel Brosnahan plays Lois Lane and Nicholas Hoult is the villain Lex Luthor. Skyler Gisondo will play Jimmy Olsen, the hero's best friend. Wendell Pierce was cast as Perry White, the editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet, the newspaper where Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen work Other DC characters will be in the film. Nathan Fillion plays Green Lantern Guy Gardner, Isabela Merced will play Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi will play Mr. Incredible and Anthony Carrigan is in the role of Metamorpho. In addition to these, the film has María Gabriela De Faria as Engineering, a character who will later appear in the group The Authority, which will have its own film.

Gunn and Safran will produce the film as part of DC Studios. Superman (previously called Superman: Legacy) premieres on July 11, 2025, and will mark the beginning of the new DC Universe of cinema and television. Gunn's Superman film puts a definitive end to Henry Cavill's time as the Man of Steel after a turbulent period last year. In October 2022, Cavill recently announced his return to the role of Superman, having participated in a cameo in Black Adam. The same would be prepared for Flash, but that is no longer guaranteed. Despite having released a video announcing his return, the actor did not sign a contract with Warner, and the project for a possible Man of Steel 2 did not leave the initial stages until it was officially abandoned.

James Gunn and Peter Safran have been announced as presidents of the newly formed DC Studios. The plan is for the new bosses to install a production model similar to Marvel's, where Kevin Feige takes the reins on both the executive and creative sides. At DC, this work will be divided into two parts. Safran, who produces the features in the Conjuring universe, will take care of the executive side, while Gunn will be the creative mind behind the company's next features.
