DAVID BOREANAZ IN JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER

David Boreanaz is providing the voice of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in Justice League: The New Frontier, the direct-to-DVD animated movie from Warner Bros, The Continuum has learned.

Boreanaz, 37, is currently playing Agent Seeley Booth on the Fox series Bones. He is probably best known as Angel, a role that began in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and extended into its own series on The WB.

Boreanaz was also featured in 2005's The Crow: Wicked Prayer. He next stars opposite Anne Heche in the independent black comedy, Suffering Man's Charity.

The Continuum has also learned that Brooke Shields will be providing the voice of Carol Ferris in the film, based on the comics series created by Darwyn Cooke.

Shields just last weekend was featured as the voice of the Riddler's girlfriend in Kids' WB!'s The Batman. Shields has dozens of TV and movie credits, including starring in Suddenly Susan and most recently on FX's Nip/Tuck.

According to a representative, Warner Bros. Animation is not currently confirming voice talent for any of the DC direct-to-DVD projects. A panel is scheduled for next week's WonderCon in San Francisco.

SMALLVILLE: "PROMISE"

The CW has released a description of "Promise," the wedding day episode of Lex and Lana that is scheduled to air on Thursday March 15.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"On the day of Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Lana's (Kristin Kreuk) wedding, Lex receives a call from Dr. Langston (guest-star Fred Henderson), who threatens to tell Lana the truth about her baby. Lana begins to have second thoughts about marrying Lex, and Clark comes to his own realization that he can't let Lana marry Lex and decides to tell her about his secret. However, no one is prepared for what happens when Lionel Luthor (John Glover) steps in."

The episode was written by Brian Peterson and Kelly Sounders and directed by Rick Rosenthal.

The countdown to Coundown is on.

DC Comics went public with its new weekly series Countdown on Friday at its DC Nation Panel at New York Comic Con.

DCU executive editor Dan DiDio led the panel, which featured Countdown writer Paul Dini, Countdown editor Mike Marts, artist Keith Giffen, coordinating editor Jann Jones and vice president-sales Bob Wayne.

NEW YORK COMIC CON: VERTIGO

DC Comics' Vertigo panel at New York Comic Con on Friday got off to an uncomfortable start. A heckler berated Y: The Last Man writer Brian K. Vaughan for more than a minute before being leaving the room.

Things quickly settled down, though, and editor Karen Berger and panelists discussed upcoming projects from the mature readers imprint.

NEW YORK COMIC CON: WORLD WAR HULK PANEL

How big is World War Hulk?

At the panel devoted to the next Marvel event, editor-in-chief Joe Quesada noted that, in all, with tie-ins, there will be 35 total issues over four months.

"There's always going to be tie-in books," Quesada said. "That's the essence of publishing."

Quesada and several of the creators -- writers Greg Pak, Frank Tieri, Christos Gage and Dan Slott, editors Bill Rosemann and Mark Paniccia -- discussed the main story of an angry Hulk's return to Earth as well as the tie-ins.
