This summer, fans will get a double dose of Green Lantern.
Ten days before the release of the live-action movie “Green Lantern” (starring Ryan Reynolds), you will be able to hear Nathan Fillion (“Castle”) as the voice of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in DC Universe’s latest animated movie, “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.”
The following is the official synopsis from Warner Home Video:
“Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” is an all-new DC Universe Animated Original Movie that weaves six interlocking stories of the Green Lantern Corps’ rich mythology around preparations for an attack by an ancient enemy. As the battle approaches, Hal Jordan (voiced by Nathan Fillion) mentors new recruit Arisia (Elisabeth Moss of “Mad Men”) in the history of the Green Lantern Corps, telling tales of Avra (the first Green Lantern) and several of Hal’s comrades – including Abin Sur, Kilowog, Laira and Mogo. In the end, Arisia must rise to the occasion to help Hal, Sinestro and the entire Green Lantern Corps save the universe from the destructive forces of Krona.
Of particular note is that the stories were written by comic book luminaries such as Geoff Johns, Dave Gibbons, Peter J. Tomasi, Eddie Berganza, Alan Burnett, Todd Casey and Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim.
Personally, I think it’s going to be interesting to explore the other Green Lanterns’ stories. I enjoyed “Green Lantern: First Flight,” which was a previous animated film, and from the looks of this trailer, this movie will be great as well.
One thing I’m already thrilled about this movie is Nathan Fillion. His voice is perfect for Hal Jordan and I’m pretty sure other fans out there are excited about this as I am.
“Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” will be released on DVD and blu-ray June 7. In the meantime, discuss and leave your comments to the right. What are your thoughts after seeing this trailer?
