Wonder Con coverage -- and much more!


Following the Wonder Con screening of Wonder Woman, Warner Home Video on Friday night announced Green Lantern: First Flight, the fifth entry in the DVD series of DC Universe Animated Original PG-13 Movies.

A co-production of Warner Premiere, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation, the full-length animated film is set for release by Warner Home Video on July 28. Green Lantern: First Flight will be available as a special edition 2-disc version on DVD and Blu-Ray Hi-Def for $29.98 and $34.99, respectively, as well as single disc DVD for $19.98.

Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) fills the lead voice of Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern. The cast include Victor Garber (Milk, Titanic) as the villainous Sinestro, Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as the voice of Boodikka, and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs) as Kilowog.

Produced by Bruce Timm, Green Lantern: First Flight is helmed by heralded director Lauren Montgomery and scripted by four-time Emmy Award-winning writer Alan Burnett.

Here's how the film is described:

"Green Lantern: First Flight finds Hal Jordan recruited to join the Green Lantern Corps and placed under the supervision of respected senior Lantern Sinestro. The earthling soon discovers his mentor is actually the central figure in a secret conspiracy that threatens the philosophies, traditions and hierarchy of the entire Green Lantern Corps. Hal must quickly hone his newfound powers and combat the treasonous Lanterns within the ranks to maintain order in the universe."

Green Lantern: First Flight - 2 Disc Special Edition versions will include bonus features such as: Over three hours of extra content; two featurettes; digital copy download; and two episodes of Justice League hand-picked by Timm. The Blu-Ray version will include all those extras, as well as two additional episodes of Justice League picked by Timm.

"As one of the true core DC Super Heroes, Green Lantern has captured the imagination of pop culture enthusiasts with his illuminatingly human approach to justice throughout the universe," said Gregory Noveck, senior VP - creative affairs, DC Comics. "Alan Burnett's script captures the essence of DC's canon of Green Lantern tales, and provides a fine launching point for future stories with this character."
