DC comics initially released the animated version of the cover to September's Green Lantern: Future's End #1, leaving fans with just still images of the rest of the books in the Lantern family. DC has since released animated versions of the rest of books which will make up the special event that runs across DC's entire line. Here's are the original solicitations accompanied by the animated covers.
Time Lapse and you can view the trailer on the movie's web site.
More Details Emerge from San Diego
A few more details are coming out about this fall's Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham video game courtesy of Gamespot. We previously heard that the emotional spectrum would be featured in the game and a new video that the gaming site has put online shows that Bleez and Arkillo are going to both be playable characters. The planets Okaara and Zamoran are going to be visited in the game so it's also safe to assume that Larfleeze and some Star Sapphires will be playable as well. Josh Keaton, who voiced Hal Jordan in Green Lantern: The Animated Series, will be providing the voice for Hal in this game as well.
New Pics from San Diego
There's been very, very sparse Green Lantern news coming out of this year's San Diego Comic-Con and what little there is ties to merchandising. Previously we saw some photos of Sideshow Collectibles' 1/6th scale figures for Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and the Flash, but today we received some new images of a much higher quality thanks to Ralph Apel who is attending the convention. Make sure to click on the images to see them at full resolution!
"Justice League: Gods and Monsters" in 2015
Bruce Timm, an incredible familiar name to DC Comics fans, may make his first official foray into the New 52 animated universe in 2015 in a very big way. It was reported at the San Diego Comic-Con that Timm was to write and direct Justice League: Gods and Monsters which is slated to be released next year. James Tucker, the Supervising Producer for DC's animated films, took to Twitter to correct the reports by indicating that the feature would be written by Alan Burnett and directed by Sam Liu. Tucker did not go on to explain what role Timm may be playing in the feature, if any, however it would seem likely that if he is involved it could very well be as the film's producer.
Also announced at the San Diego Comic-Con was Batman Versus Robin, which was originally reported to be an animated adaptation of Scott Snyder's Court of Owls story arc. Tucker corrected that as well, saying it is not based on Snyder's story but more information wasn't provided about what it might be based upon. Now if we could just get a Sinestro Corps War adaptation produced by Giancarlo Volpe and written by Jim Krieg......

"Burn it down so you can build it back up"
Red Lanterns #33 continues to build toward the inevitable rematch between Guy Gardner and Atrocitus, taking a pause before the action heats up again so Guy can have a little quality time before all Hell breaks loose. Writer Charles Soule does a great job of providing Guy with a great reunion with John Stewart while still giving Atrocitus' return some needed panel time as well as keeping us aware of the ongoing battle to win Rankorr's sanity back.
Unfortunately not THAT Green Lantern
Josh Keaton, the voice of Green Lantern in the animated series, will be returning to his ring-slinging ways in the upcoming Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham video game. The third in the Batman lego video game series will be released some time this fall, but to get fans in the mood for the game the studio behind the game, TT Games, has released a new trailer at this week's San Diego Comic-Con.
Green Lantern is barely seen in the new trailer but hopefully he won't be written as he was in last year's movie.
New Video from DC All Access
Sideshow Collectibles recently announced that they would be adding a fourth Green Lantern collectible to their high quality (and high priced) offerings. In addition to the Hal Jordan and Sinestro Premium Format Figures and the Hal Jordan life size bust Sideshow will be making a six scale Green Lantern figure to add to that product line. The debut of the product is this week's San Diego Comic-Con and an early image has found its way to Twitter via DC Comics.
