well that makes sense. I still think he should be Hal in the movie, but alas... still, his voice acting is not to be taken lightly. his talents will surely shine through. (yes, i am a browncoat, don't judge me)

Sounds great, but I hope its better than the last DC Green Lantern animation.  I was really disappointed that they went the Sinestro is evil route so quick, add to fact you never once see them charge up or carry the lantern, AND so much happens so quick.

totally he seems like such a great match. He was always very commanding in his punk rock days. can't wait to see that drill instructor type voice placed on Kilowog. I think it will do justice for the character.

OH, and HENRY FREAKING ROLLINS as Killowog?  That's amazing.  Seeing him speak and meeting him in person was one of the coolest moments in my life.

that's so funny he is voicing Hal after that GL fan trailer got him such a large amount of fan support to play him while they were still casting the live action film. The animation in this looks really similar to First Flight so it should be cool. Can't wait!

He's got the perfect voice but not the right look / age. Makes sense to me!

I enjoy all of the time Disney is putting....excuse me "Marvel" is putting into the Green Lantern franchise but i wonder if they will finally portray the  story line correctly with 1: Atrocitus killing Abin Sur and 2: bringing in all of the colored spectrum lanterns seeing how they always seem to detour from this in their movies and series. We are all too aware of the Green Lanterns and their duties but never get the chance to see how powerful and needed the others are. Even if they do not i am interested still in how this will script out and even more intrigued by Henry Rollins taking the mantle of Kilowog. A build up to Parallax would also be a welcomed change of pace though me being disappointed again is clearly in my near future seeing how easily castrated Mickey seemingly loves to remain in neutral ill-informed storylines for what he sees as assured ratings instead of dropping a pair and taking a chance on facts and fan supported wants/needs...kill the mouse save the world.

As happy am I too hear this news. I am somewhat jaded about the over exposure of Green Lantern this year (honestly Bradley Cooper should have gotten it). There's already the movie coming out, a cartoon series with Josh Keaton as Hal Jordan coming this november. And now another animated romp with GL Hal Jordan (and recast from Christopher Meloni). All I got to ask is this a continuation of First Flight or a completely brand new adventure.  
 
Also I hate to say this but Fillion is too old to play a live action Hal Jordan. Other wise David Boreanez would have been my first ideal choice in the movie adaptation.

@Angelique_LeCount:  I think you've got the wrong company. Green Lantern is DC, not Marvel.

@G-Man:  Emerald Knights has a lot to prove if it wants to be as good as First Flight...that set the standard for me.

This will probably be better than the live action movie...but I'm surprised the didn't opt to get the voice actor in First Flight to come back, if this is a sequel that is...

I really hope Jaron Pitts (creator of that fan trailer) got a huge cheque for this.
