Green Lantern: The Animated Series

Recommended Posts

this looks cool, and I read that Kilowog is going to be one of the mainest (yeah, thats right, mainest, I made it up) characters. I'm psyched because I love Green Lantern and Kilowog is awesome. Like Knightwing and Stavros said, it looks like fun. Looking forward to it.

Not impressed. Why make your characters computer-generated when you don't have the money or can't be arse enough to give them texture?

That said, I'll still give it a shot since I'm a big fan of Timm and of Josh Keaton.

To be fair, 2D animated characters in DC animation don't really have texture either; they're just flat color with shading, exactly like this new CG stuff.

As long as the movement and color are exciting, I'm all for this.

Yes, but 2D animated characters would have looked just as good in that scene, if not better. Is there a purpose for them being 3D other than to make this show stand out from the others?

I actually think I prefer this CG look for Green Lantern. It fits the sci-fi theme and it has great depth to it. It also seems to have a real smoothness and expressiveness that most other animated series, 2D or 3D, don't have. And, yes, making it CG does make it stand out from other shows, which isn't a bad thing.

Probably because the Sinestro Corps haven't shown up in the movies yet. Or maybe because the Reds are more different from the GLs than the Sinestros are. It's a little easier to have an action series for kids with villains that are all RAAARGH RAAARGH I'M EVIL.

Oh, no, I gotcha.

I think I remember a comment from Timm awhile back saying that they couldn't use the Sinestro Corps because they hadn't shown up yet in the movies, but the Reds were working out just fine in the meantime.

I feel that if they had made this show 2D it would have taken a little away. If they had to make a CG show I'm glad the hero was Green Lantern because he's the only hero that it would fit. I'm looking forward to it. And I'm guessing they arent using The Sinestro Corps because it might confuse some of the kids that saw Sinestro in the movie as a good guy. I'm definitely looking forward to this show. I think it's going to be great.

Saw the 2-part opener. Really great stuff. It's done in a style clearly aimed at kids, but there's a definite mature angle to it all. There's some good drama in parts of it. But most of all, it's fun.

I gotta agree. I was really pleasantly surprised at how strong this series' opener was and am really looking forward to seeing where the show goes from here. I wasn't crazy about the CGI at first but it slowly grew on me.

The show was good. i had a lot of problems with the CGI though, liek the lack of texture, and the fact the them flying just didn't sit right with me and my roommate as we watched it.

I loved it. I thought it was funny when the ship said what they would need for the construct part and Kilowog was like "I make hammers" I loved the fight scenes in it. The flying looked fine to me.
