Green Lantern: The Animated Series Gets New Lantern

July 15th, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

When season 2 of the Green Lantern kicks off in September there will be a new but familiar face added to the cast. TV Guide is reporting that season 2 will see Hal Jordan returning to Earth only to discover he’s been replaced as the Green Lantern of sector 2814…by Guy Gardner.

Diedrich Bader( The Drew Carey Show, Napoleon Dynamite) will provide the voice of Guy Gardner, who according to series producer Giancarlo Volpe is, “Like Hal cranked up to level 10. He’s that much cockier, more brash and a womanizer.” Pretty much sounds like the Guy Gardner we are all familiar with.
Also making his debut in the DC animated universe will be the Anti-Monitor, the villain of the Crisis On Infinite Earths and herald of the Sinestro Corp. This means we could see some major comic story arcs playing out in season 2. All I can say is, this sounds like it will be awesome!!!

Christopher is self-billed as the World's Coolest Nerd (meaning he wears glasses and is clumsy, but he never earned good marks in school). He loves all things Star Wars and superhero related such as comics, books, cartoons and movies. He's a husband and father who somehow manages to keep up with his pastimes since his day job mainly consists of sitting around a store with not much to do. He's very outspoken and wants to share his opinions with the world, or at least his fellow nerds. You can follow him on Twitter @AUDone44.
