First Image for Emerald Knights

Here is the first photo released by Warner Bros. of the upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie, Emerald Knights which is due out in stores June 7.

Just like one of their earlier films, Gotham Knights, this direct-to-DVD movie is actually a series of short vignettes about the Green Lantern Corps and its verious members.

Firefly's Nathan Fillion plays Hal Jordan and Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss plays Arisia, a new recruit that will be mentored by Jordan. Other voices attached to this project include Harry Potter's Jason Isaacs, Hawaii Five-O's Kelly Hu, actor/spoken-word artist Henry Rollins and ex-wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.

This is going to be awesome. Ever since Firefly, I've been following Nathan's career. As a DISH customer/employee I use the Logitech Revue with Google TV and just finished watching Firefly off the Netflix app and decided to see what else our Captain had going. So far all the DC animated stuff I've seen has been awesome, and this looks like it will be, too.

Can't wait to see some of the other styles of animation that will be used for the other vignettes. Wonder if will get direct-to-DVD movies like this for all of DC's live-action movies. With the Superman Reboot just a year away, I wouldn't mind seeing something like this for Sup.

Why has "Animated Superheroes" become "DC Animated Superheroes"?

There are Marvel cartoons out there.
