Hm. I'm pretty sure somebody thought this would be great timing. And it makes sense, you're about to launch your new television series, so why not piggy-back on the blockbuster film of the same property? Well...let's just say the live-action Green Lantern flick isn't exactly tearing up the box office or making any critics' top-ten lists. This is rather unfortunate for the people trying to market the Cartoon Network's new show, Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

Although I found the film fairly fun (surely not worthy of the vicious vitriol it sparked in some critics), I hope the bad reviews don't have a negative effect on what could otherwise be another great Bruce Timm animated adaptation of the DC universe (All-Star Superman and Green Lantern: Emerald Knights are his two most recent gems). The new series is only teased in the following video, but it looks like they rely heavily on computer-generated animation instead of the hand-drawn look of Emerald Knights. Either way, I'm in.
