Another Green Lantern Animated Movie In The Works?

Green Lantern fans have a lot to be happy about right now. Last year saw the release of Green Lantern: First Flight — an animated retelling of Hal Jordan’s first days as a Green Lantern; Blackest Night and the Green Lantern comics are on fire; there’s an upcoming 3D live-action film starring Ryan Reynolds currently filming, and now it looks like there may be another Green Lantern animated film in the works.

Comics Continuum is reporting that Warner Brothers Animation is making another Green Lantern direct-to-DVD animated film that will center around the origins of the Green Lantern Corps, along with the very first ring wielders. Although Warner Brothers has not yet given any type of official confirmation, I suspect it’s only a matter of time before they do.

Green Lantern: First Flight
Single-Disc Edition
Directed by Lauren Montgomery
Starring Christopher Meloni, Victor Garber, Tricia Helfer

Released: July 28, 2009

DC Animation has hit on something with their recent direct-to-DVD releases, particularly the Batman: Gotham Knight and Justice League: The New Frontier movies and the streak continues with their newest film, Green Lantern: First Flight. DC/Warner Bros picked a good time to release this, what with the Green Lantern comic series being the best it’s been, arguably ever, and big news being thrown around with Ryan Reynolds being cast as Hal Jordan in the upcoming live-action movie. Let’s be honest, Green Lantern has never been as big a name to the non-comics world as say Batman or Spider-Man, so it’s nice to see that DC hasn’t forgotten about him. Is this movie as good as the current series? I wouldn’t say that, but it does a good job of introducing the characters and world of GL, so it succeeds in that part.

One thing to be said about the story is that it isn’t a straight adaptation of a story already told in comics, ala Superman: Doomsday or New Frontier. It’s a completely new story, although it does borrow elements from the entire series, and specifically some elements from the Sinestro Corp War.
