Green Lantern: The Animated Series Coming In 2012

It appears Green Lantern’s light will end up shining on the small screen just as brightly as it will in theaters.

Announced today at Time Warner’s investor showcase, Turner Broadcasting chairman and CEO Phil Kent confirmed that Cartoon Network will soon air an animated series based on the DC Comics hero, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Already set for a big screen debut with Ryan Reynolds in the leading role for a June 17, 2011 release, “Green Lantern: The Animated Series” (which will air the year after the movie) will be the first time the character has had a solo TV spotlight after years of appearing in series from “Super Friends” to “Justice League Unlimited”.
