Come this time next year, we’ll all be chatting about the scuttlebutt around about Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern. More than likely, it’ll be raking in hundreds of millions of dollery doos and what’s next for DC and the Green Lantern franchise. We’ll also probably be going on as to how Ryan Reynolds can juggle both this and Deadpool. Well, we kinda know now what’s next for Green Lantern. An animated series on Cartoon Network!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, during a presentation by Time Warner, a slide show of upcoming Cartoon Network shows. One of them, was a slide that had a nifty little graphic that said: Green Lantern, the animated series. All of this rounds up to the following:
Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Barry Meyer later in the day mentioned this as an example of increasing collaboration and coordination between his unit and Turner. He said the Cartoon Network show is based on the DC Comics character and Warner’s “Green Lantern” movie, scheduled for a June 17, 2011 release.
The show is apparently set to debut the SECOND year after the release of the film. Meaning, 2013. Seems a little late for a movie tie in series, but we got a Clone Wars series years after the movie. So, why not? No word yet on who’s in charge of the show, or what the show will look like, but I have a feeling we’ll be finding out in the coming months.
