This weekend, at the New York Comic Con, fans had a chance to get a first look at the upcoming Green Lantern: The Animated Series. Several of the Major Spoilers Twitter Nation were at the show and let us know they enjoyed it quite a bit.
Warner Bros. has released a sneak peek of the first episode that you can check 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.
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?
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.
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.

It’s kind of a slobberknocker is basically what I’m sayin’, here…
I got a chance to play Rise of the Manhunters, the Green Lantern movie tie-in game for X-Box 360. Now I’ve played some superhero games in the past that didn’t live up to the character they were trying to recreate, so I went in with a lot of expectations (some might say demands) for the game. Here’s a list of specific (and largely unreasonable) things I wanted out of this video-type-game
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a sequel to the Green Lantern movie is still in the works. The film, which only grossed $18.5 million this past weekend, cost Warner Bros. $200 million to produce, but the studio still believes in the franchise.
For those who listened to the Major Spoilers Podcast where we talked about the movie, know we thought it was pretty swell, and I for one wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel where Sinestro becomes the big bad.
What about you? Would you go see a second Green Lantern installment?
