According to Variety, "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" star Irvine will play secretly homosexual FBI agent Alan Scott in the show - the first-ever Green Lantern - alongside Finn Wittrock, who is said to have been cast in the lead role of Guy Gardner.
"The story spans decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Gardner and half-alien Bree Jarta," a synopsis of the show reads. "They'll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns - from comic book favourites to never-before-seen heroes."
