A trailer has gone online for the direct-to-video animated film Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. The marketing of this film is beautiful in how it confuses and frustrates fanboys. The selling point is: “Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern!” And immediately you respond, “Wait? What! But I thought Ryan Reynolds was playing Green Lantern! Is Fillion going to finally get the big break he so richly deserves? JESUS GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING?!” Then in fine print you see (“Emerald Knights”…animated movie…direct-to-DVD) and the world goes back to making sense.
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights has six interlocking stories that focus on different members of the Green Lantern Corps. The voice cast also includes Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Henry Rollins, and Roddy Piper. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Green Lantern: Emerald Knights hits DVD and Blu-ray on June 7th, ten days before the live-action Green Lantern hits theaters.
