Talking Green Lantern Animated & Gaming News Discussion Thread




Green Lantern Corps

* Bruce Timm's name was attached to it
* Animated in CGI
* Set for Fourth Quarter 2011. If true, this matches how Batman: The Brave and The Bold debuted in a November, as well.
* Insider saw five minutes of footage of Hal Jordan in space.
* If true, more serious in tone than Batman: The Brave and The Bold and Michael Jelenic is also involved from an interview done months ago when he hinted at working on a new series.


YEEAAAHHH

While that forum poster seemed to be in the know on the Young Justice series, its still unconfirmed talk.

This would be a cool series if this is indeed accurate, or indeed if this ever sees the light of day. The timing seems to be right, probably lining up nicely with the release of the movie on DVD.

If this happens, hopefully Timm will use the origins and backstories as in the books. As much as I want to see an animated series, I'd be a bit taken aback if they used "Green and Yellow elements."

I hope the style is done realistic in the attempt, like 'The Batman' series, G.I.Joe, The recent GL animated feature, etc.... you get the point. NOT "cutsie-toonized" such as Batman: B&B or Transformers Animated. That stuff seems geared toward toddlers and pisses me off (since I don't have a toddler, hehe - I want it for ME). I think the realistic is geared toward young and old alike. I would want it to be 2D with CGI elements preferably. If it is done only in CGI, I hope to god it doesn't end up as crappy as SW:Clone Wars.

I've always said GLC would look best if it were fashioned like Ghost in the Shell.

I'll be excited with this as long as it has no connection to First Flight at all. If that were the case, then I could see much potential.

I also hope it's not based on the movie either. I know nothing has really been revealed about the movie and it could be absolutely fantastic but I want a toon based on the comic. Would be cool if Geoff Johns was some kind of story consultant too.

yea i agree it should be seperate from the film. what they should do for the first episode is secrect orgins of hal than build it up from there. kinda make the toon itself a continuity like a comic mini

That would be perfect...Introduce Atrocitus then leave him alone until they do Rage of the Red Lanterns....

GitS:SAC yes. Late eighties-Ninties version, no.


Anyway, ANY GL TV series would rock.

This is an awesome news and I hope it's true. I would love to see a series based on the entire Corps and not particularly on just one Lantern. However, if they do focus on a particular Lantern, I would love for it to be Hal of course. I think that they should at least include a short 15 minute segment attached to the end of each episode entitled "Tales of the Green Lantern Corps". Each segment is done to highlight a member of the Corp and tell a brief tale from that Lantern's history, and should also focuse The Book of Oa.

Now that is a great idea!

A "short 15 minute segment?" That's half the episode. I like how "Batman: Brave and the Bold" have that mini-adventure before the opening to introduce a character and quickly put down a threat. I'd rather new corps members be introduced in each episode this way. They could of course be featured later on in larger stories, but then we'd already have met them and have gotten an idea of who they are.

If the movie is successful, it will be tied-in to Hal as a corporate decision. If the movie flops, then it's open.

One story that I would love to see told is from Tales of the Green Lantern Corps Annual #3. Katma Tui is sent to the Obsidian Deeps in order to recruit a new Green lantern to protect that part of space. A section of space that is completely devoid of light. She comes across a being named Rot Lop Fan, who was completely blind and had no concept of light and color. Realizing that his species operates by hearing, Katma reshapes the power ring from a lantern into a bell, and describes the Green Lantern Corps as the "F-Sharp Bell Corps"- "F-Sharp" being a reassuring note for Rot Lop Fan's race in the same manner that green is a reassuring color, and the ring's powers in terms of sound instead of light. She also composes a new oath for him to recite.

In loudest din or hush profound

my ears hear evil's slightest sound

let those who toll out evil's knell

beware my power, the F-Sharp Bell!


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F_Sharp_Bell#Rot_Lop_Fan


The concept of recruiting sightless beings and asking them to understand the concept of light and colors was pure genius.
