It looks like some intergalactic wires might have been crossed during Tuesday's rollout of the HBO Max May 2020 streaming service launch announcement.
As Newsarama noted is our reporting, HBO Max released two, seemingly contradictory descriptions of executive producer Greg Berlanti's Strange Adventures series.
In their press release, they described the series as "an anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist," and then again as "a DC Super Hero anthology series ..." that will feature "...characters from across the DC canon. This one-hour drama series will explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans."
But concurrent with that announcement, the official HBO Max Twitter account offered an alternative description of the series seemingly at odds with the other.
The original tweet read Strange Adventurse was "...about 'man of two worlds' Adam Strange, an archaeologist-turned-intergalactic-hero when he's zeta-beamed to planet Rann."
Representatives for HBO Max/Warner Bros. did not respond to Newsarama's inquiries about the two very different descriptions but the tweet seems to have been removed overnight and replaced with a new tweet using the 'anthology' description from the press release.
As a result, as we speculated Tuesday, the HBO Max series seems unrelated and coincidental to the new Strange Adventures DC comic book series starring Adam Strange coming from Tom King, Mitch Gerads and Evan "Doc" Shaner in 2020.
