Green Lantern Series Has Been Greenlit!

Green Lantern: the Animated Series was officially announced yesterday at Time Warner's investor showcase. Hollywood Reporter reports that the series is set to debut on Cartoon Network within the year following the release of the live-action Green Lantern movie staring Ryan Reynolds.

According to the image above, a slide from the powerpoint presentation shown at the investor showcase, the series will be CG and is scheduled for a November 2011 release.

There is also mention of a direct-to-DVD feature, most likely animated, scheduled for June 2011.

It looks like 2011 will a banner year for Green Lantern! This is very exciting news, especially to Green Lantern fans, as GL hasn't ever starred in his own series! A press release and maybe a promo image will surely drop soon!
