Green Lantern: The Animated Series Gets New Lantern

July 15th, 2012 by Marc 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!!!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
