Kyle Rayner, Earth’s rookie Lantern, has proven himself time and again in the time that he’s had a ring. With the GL’s getting the least amount of change, what new challenges lie ahead for Kyle? Find out after the jump.
If you’ve been curious about the upcoming Green Lantern: The Animated Series show on the Cartoon Network, and if you are planning to attend the New York Comic Con, then Warner Bros. has a panel for you.
Or – “Here’s Why I Prefer Some Characters Dead….”
I have a real problem with the fact that comics death is never final. It’s a problem that I have had to learn to live with, much like my day job requires me to get over my aversion to stupidity, drama and what is almost certainly serious meth addiction… When a batch of 90′s comics showed up for processing on my desk, I flipped through the pages of this one, and was reminded of one of the few times after 1984 that Hal Jordan was in any way interesting.
Take one lone survivor of his race, mix in a bunch of rage, a red ring, and a cat that vomits red rage on its enemies, and you have the makings of the antithesis of the Green Lantern Corps. Enter the Red Lanterns!
I haven’t read a Green Lantern title since Kyle Rayner had the ring and Hal Jordan was as dead as Barry Allen and Bucky Barnes put together. Does this re-introduction to Green Lantern have me swearing an oath to read it every month or swearing off comics for good?
As stated on the variant cover, “Batman + Guy Gardner = Worst. Team-up. Ever.” But in the best kind of way.
In an interview with Hero Complex, Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov said the company is moving forward with a Green Lantern sequel, even though the movie didn’t open as well as the company had hoped.
“We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience,” said Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov, pointing to the film’s box office debut of $53 million. “To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action…. And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.”
The sequel already has an outline by Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, but off the record, someone at Warner Bros. said big changes would occur, including a new director for the flick.
In other superhero news, Robinov told the L.A. Times that a solid script for the Flash is in hand.
Once again, we’ve scoured all the news coming from the San Diego Comic Con, run it through the wringer, chapped and sorted all the info, and deliver up the tid-bits and information, along with our commentary, on DC’s Green Lantern Panel, and are serving it up to you, after the jump.
Take a gander at this sneak peek of the Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
Those attending Comic Con will no doubt get to see a bit more than that on Friday.
While I liked what LEGO did with the Batman sets from a few years ago, I was always hoping for more from the toy company. Looks like that wish is coming true as DC and LEGO have expanded their relationships allowing LEGO to access the complete library of comic book characters and stories to launch DCU Super Heroes.
The multi-year licensing deal, made through Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will start rolling out the new line in January, starting with 13 characters, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and villains the Joker, Bane, Harley Quinn and Lex Luthor.
Those of you at the San Diego Comic Con will want to circle like vultures around the Warner Bros., LEGO, and DC Booths, as 3,000 Batman and Green Lantern exclusive minifigs will be given away to fans. With 130,000 attendees, those figures are going to go fast, and will more than likely fetch a pretty price on eBay starting next week.
The LEGO Super Heroes line will arrive in January 2012.
