Superman: Red Son has been slated by Warner Brothers for release during the first quarter of 2020.  Based on the Eisner nominated 2003 miniseries from Mark Miller, Superman: Red Son reimagines a universe where Kal-El lands in in the Ukraine rather than the farm fields of Kansas.  While the story has a relatively minor Green Lantern presence, behind the cameras will be a number of voices very familiar to Green Lantern fans.  Phil LaMarr returns to provide the familiar voice for John Stewart and actor Sash Roiz will provide the voice for Hal Jordan.  Roiz is probably best known for his portrayal of Captain Sean Renard in the television series Grimm.  Other notable members of the cast include:

Jason Isaacs, who played Sinestro in in Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, as Superman.

Diedrich Bader, who played Guy Gardner in Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, as Lex Luthor.

Vanessa Marshall, who played Galia in Green Lantern: The Animated Series, as Wonder Woman.

Amy Acker, who played The Huntress in Justice League Unlimited, as Lois Lane.

Phil Morris, who played Saint Walker in Green Lantern: The Animated Series, as Jimmy Olsen.Roger Graig Smith, who played Ocean Master in Young Justice, as Batman.

Superman: Red Son is directed by Sam Liu who has many DC Comics animation projects to his credit, including directing fourteen episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series.  Completing the Green Lantern theme, the script for the animated feature was written by J.M. DeMatteis, whose lengthy comics resume includes Green Lantern: Willworld, The Green Lantern/Huckleberry Hound Special and the Hal Jordan led Spectre series.
