Following its New York Comic Con debut, producers Bruce Timm, Giancarlo Volpe and Jim Krieg dropped some new details on the upcoming “Green Lantern: The Animated Series” to io9 concerning character lineups, plot and the fact that “Kilowog is in practically every episode.”
This is what Timm and Krieg had to say:
The show takes place on the edge of Guardian space and the show starts off with Green Lantern getting killed off on this edge. So Hal borrows a prototypical, faster-than-light ship and he and Kilowog go to investigate. They quickly discover that there are the previously unknown Red Lanterns systematically killing off the Green Lanterns.
Additionally, Timm explains how the series will be set mostly in space with a veteran Hal Jordan. The story will not be an origins tale, and rightfully so considering we’ll learn of Hal’s origins in the big screen adaptation which is setup as a lead in.
At the moment there is no word regarding appearances from other DC superheroes such as the Justice League, but Timm did confirm that we will not see Batman and Robin… ever.
“Green Lantern: The Animated Series” is the first DC Comics-based cartoons done entirely in CGI and fans can expect it to drop in 2011 only on the Cartoon Network.
