You know it'll be good, because it was directed by Lauren Montgomery, who was part of the team behind Marvel's brilliant Hulk Vs DVD, and the director of DC's recent animated Wonder Woman. It has a nice vocal cast too: Christopher Meloni is the man behind Hal Jordan, and he's joined by the talents of Tricia Helfer as Boodikka, Michael Madsen as Kilowog, and Victor Garber as Sinestro. The story traces Jordan receiving the ring and being mentored by Sinestro, who he discovers isn't exactly the kindly teacher he pretends to be. (With a name like Sinestro? No!) Jordan must perfect his powers, and combat the treason within the ranks of the Lanterns.
While the animated version looks like a lot of fun, you can't help but think what a good summer blockbuster this might have made. Check out the trailer below.
