Warner Home Entertainment has announced it is changing the street date for the DC Universe Animated Green Lantern: First Flight Blu-Ray and DVD to July 28, 2009.
Green Lantern: First Flight finds Hal Jordan recruited to join the Green Lantern Corps and placed under the supervision of respected senior Lantern Sinestro. The earthling soon discovers his mentor is actually the central figure in a secret conspiracy that threatens the philosophies, traditions and hierarchy of the entire Green Lantern Corps. Hal must quickly hone his newfound powers and combat the treasonous Lanterns within the ranks to maintain order in the universe.
There’s something like three hours of bonus material in the collection, which is pretty cool, and makes the $24.99 price tag for the Blu-Ray version, well worth it.Â After New Frontier, Green Lantern is the movie I am most anticipating in animated form.
The first arc of the Superman/Batman series by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness has been confirmed by several online sources as the next DC animated feature to follow Green Lantern: First Flight.
If the animated film is true to the series, it will feature President Lex Luthor framing Batman and Superman as enemies to the world as a Kryptonite asteroid heads toward Earth.Â He then offers up a one million billion dollar reward to bring the two in.Â This then leads to giant rocket ships, Captain Atom and Hawkman making appearances, and concludes with Luthor in his famous green armored suit proclaiming the day of reconning is coming.
While it sounds corny, the first arc wasn’t too bad and if done in the Ed McGuinness style, it could be a really good direct to DVD movie.
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is expected to hit stores in the fall.
UPDATE:Â Here’s the official synopsis from Warner Home Video
United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a
kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty
on the heads of the Man of Steel and his â€œpartner in crimeâ€ Batman.
Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of
Superman and Batman, who must unite â€“ and recruit super help â€“ to
stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover
Luthorâ€™s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.
