WONDER CON: IDW'S MOVIE TITLES

IDW Publishing has the comics rights for three of 2009's largest movie franchises -- Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and Star Trek -- and Sunday at Wonder Con held a panel to discuss plans for their movie titles.

WONDER CON: GREEN LANTERN MOVIES

Will Anton Yelchin be playing Green Lantern in a feature film? That's news to him.

While promoting Terminator: Salvation and Star Trek over the weekend at Wonder Con, Yelchin quickly dismissed reports that he was in line to play Hal Jordan in Warner Bros.' adaptation of the DC Comics character.

"As far as I know, I'm not involved in it," he said. "I saw that, I heard about that. I had no idea.

"As far as I know I'm too young. From what I know about Green Lantern is that he's an older character. It's odd to hear things about you that you had no idea."

Yelchin, who is playing Kyle Reese in Terminator: Salvation and Chekov in Star Trek, turns 20 in two weeks.

The live-action Green Lantern will actually be the second movie featuring Hal Jordan. At Wonder Con, Warner Home Video has announced a July 28 release for Green Lantern: First Flight, the latest in its series of DC Universe animated original PG-13 movies.

Gregory Noveck the senior VP - Creative Affairs, DC Comics, told The Continuum that -- unlike how the animated Batman Gotham Knight fed into The Dark Knight -- there will be no tie-in between the Green Lantern films.

"It's totally separate," Noveck told The Continuum. "If there was a Green Lantern feature this year, then obviously we would have tied in this Green Lantern animated thing in some shape or form. This was green-lit long before anything to do with the theatrical movie was clear, so they're really two separate entities."

Look for more on Green Lantern: First Flight soon here in The Continuum.
