The film may be this summer’s biggest evidence for Superhero Fatigue, but Green Lantern isn’t going away, oh no. He’ll star, as planned, in GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES on the Cartoon Network this fall. A new trailer was just released and you can download some wallpaper. The show is produced by Bruce Timm in a 3D animated style much influenced by THE INCREDIBLES, and features Hal ￼(Josh Keaton), Killowog (Michael Clarke Duncan) and others going up against Red Lanterns.
Just as a follow-up to yesterday’s look at DC Entertainment, while live-action has been hit or (very) miss for WB, DC characters continue to do well in animated form, both on cable and direct-to-dvd movies. These are still valuable franchises.
