Before Cartoon Network brings "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" to San Diego Comic Con this Friday, July 22, a preview to the new TV series has been shared via AOL TV. In the one-and-a-half-minute video, Hal Jordan of Earth seemingly lands on a quite serious situation since he is summoned to come before the Guardians of the Universe in Oa due to report that he punched someone in the face.
Set at the farthest reaches of deep space, the superhero show finds Hal on the Guardian Frontier, where he must face down an invasion from by the Red Lantern Corps. Powered by pure rage, the evil Red Lanterns have sworn to destroy the Green Lantern Corps and everything they stand for. Hal is joined by an all-new group of heroes on a mission to protect Guardian Space and the Green Lantern Corps itself.
Bruce Timm produces "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" which has Michael Clarke Duncan, Richard Green, Robert Englund and Josh Keaton lending their voices. The animated series is scheduled to be premiered in 2012.
