DC Comics DVDs – Green Lantern & Superman/Batman

DC Comics has two upcoming films in their DVD series of DC Universe animated original PG-13 movies.  Both look great and I’m definitely picking them up!

Green Lantern: First Flight will be available on July 28.  While I’d rather they’d featured Kyle instead of Hal, this movie still looks really good!  This story covers how Hal Jordan became a Green Lantern, and his early dealings with Sinestro.  I love that Sinestro is in his current costume, rather than his cheesy old suit.  I suppose the story is a modern-day interpretation of the 1990s Emerald Dawn mini-series, since Geoff Johns said this isn’t based upon his recent “Secret Origin” arc on the Green Lantern comic.  You can visit the official movie site by clicking here.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is due out on September 29.  This story is based upon the first arc of the Superman/Batman comic book series.  In this adventure, Superman & Batman become America’s most wanted criminals – and are hunted by friends and foes alike.  It was a really good comic, so I’m looking forward to seeing the animated version. Also, they got the original voice actors who did the Superman Animated Series and the Batman Animated Series. So you know the voices are going to be spectacular! You can read the entire Press Release on Newsarama by clicking here.

I can’t wait for both of these!!!

    Hmm. If Green Lantern: First Flight is based on the original Emerald Dawn miniseries, I wonder if the limited edition version of the DVD will come with something cool… say, a cocktail shaker and a keychain.

    I am looking forward to the Superman/Batman movie. It’s still hard for me to get excited about Hal Jordan’s origin story because a)I feel like I’ve seen it over and over again, and b)Hal just doesn’t do it for me.

  3. Kyle Rayner for Mayor Says:

    Hey, just a heads up. I’m participating in a mock election run by the New Organizing Institute, and we’re trying to elect Kyle Rayner Mayor of DC.

    We’ve been endorsed by Comic Book Resources. and ShadowBanker of Eco-Comics.

    People can actually vote online on Friday. Please tell me what you think of our website: votegreenlantern.com

    Thanks for your time, everyone.

    I thought the Green Lantern was a black guy. Then again I thought Lex Luthor was originally too.
