Green Lantern: Emerald Knight Next DC Animated Movie

Just a few weeks ago, we learned that DC's animation department was moving forward with their next two films: Superman/Batman: Apocalypse and Batman: Year One. To the dismay of many Green Lantern fans, it appeared that The Dark Knight had taken over their hero's film slot. That worry seems to be unfounded, however, with recent news from Warner Home Video highlighting Green Lantern's return to the animated venue with Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.

The title Emerald Knights should be familiar to Green Lantern fans. It was a six-issue comic series written by Ron Marz and Chuck Dixon, and later collected in trade paperback format. The story is this:

"When a young Hal Jordan is thrust forward in time, Kyle Rayner, the current Green Lantern, finds himself face to face with his legendary predecessor. Working together for the first and only time, the two Green Lanterns must find a way to defeat Sinestro and the villain that Hal is destined to one day become, Parallax. Joined by the JLA and Green Arrow in this adventure, Kyle must not only find away to defeat his enemies but also decide if his actions in the present will prevent Hal from going insane and killing many of the Green Lantern Corps in the past, or only make things worse."

Whether the animated film will follow the series' storyline exactly is uncertain at this point. Hopefully, with the 2010 Comic Con International just a few short weeks away, Lantern fans will received a few more tidbits of what to expect in this much anticipated film.
