CCI: First Look at Guy Gardner On Green Lantern Animated Series

TV Guide has debuted the first look at fan-favorite DC Comics character Guy Gardner from the second season of Cartoon Network’s Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

Producer Jim Krieg teases that when Hal Jordan returns to Earth in September after defeating the Red Lantern Corps, he’ll discover he’s been replaced Green Lantern of Sector 2814 by Guy Gardner, voiced by none other than Diedrich Bader of Batman: The Brave and the Bold fame. “He’s like Hal Jordan cranked to Level 10,” producer Giancarlo Volpe tells the website. “He’s that much cockier, more brash and a womanizer.”

However, Jordan also will have to deal with a much more serious threat: the Anti-Monitor, the universe-destroying supervillain introduced in the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths. And to confront one of the most formidable figures to grace the DC Universe, or, well, Multiverse, Hal will turn to  fellow Corps members Kilowog, Aya and Razer.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series debuted in April as part of Cartoon Network’s new DC Nation programming block. The cable channel will spotlight Green Lantern and Young Justice, and preview upcoming series Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go! Sunday at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

    So cool.

    The first 13 episode arc was pretty good.  Definitely looking forward to this in the fall.

    For those of you who missed it, the DVD would be worth getting.

    I was lukewarm on this series, at first…but it surprised me and is now one of my favorite DC Nation/Animated series.  I especially like the Saint Walker character.

    YES!!!! I hope they show Lobo in the GL series some day. It’s a natural fit!

    I liked this show and am glad it’s coming back. I hope they introduce more different Lantern Corps, Larfleeze would be a blast on this show.

    I didn’t think I’d like this show, but it’s been a lot of fun, and all this news has me anxious for the new season!

    It’s indeed a great series.

    Love the look of Guy and we know Balder can deliver on the voice (he was great in Brave & the Bold). I don’t mind seeing the rest of the New Guardians (Arkillo, Fatality, Glommy, etc) as regulars/semi-regulars on the series but I’d prefer if they’d mostly focus on the GLC (at least for now). But more Saint Walker… he definitely stole the show for me.

    Let’s just hope that the 2nd season will be a full animated season (26 eps) rather than another 13.
