Cartoon Network Developing <i>Green Lantern: The Animated Series</i>

As if progress on The Flash movie and the hint of an Aquaman project weren’t enough for superhero fans, now comes word that Cartoon Network is developing a Green Lantern animated series to debut in fall 2011.

The announcement came today in a presentation to Time Warner investors by Phil Kent, chairman and CEO of Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting division. Details are scant — a slide included the title Green Lantern: The Animated Series — but The Live Feed reports that Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer later confirmed the project as an example of increased coordination between the studio and the Turner assets.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series will be based on the DC comics series and the Martin Campbell-directed Warner Bros. film, set for release on June 17, 2011.

Green Lantern has appeared in cartoon form dating back to the 1967 The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure and, later, in the various incarnations of Super Friends. More recently he was featured in the direct-to-video animated films Justice League: The New Frontier, Green Lantern: First Flight and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths.
