After four successful DC Universe releases, the fifth is coming down the pipeline, and coming fast. “Green Lantern: First Flight” has now had its street date listed as July 28th 2009, almost exactly 50 years since DC Comics Showcase #22, which is the first appearance of both Hal Jordon and the Green Lantern Corps. After the success of “Wonder Woman”, the last DC Universe animated release, expect some more fanfare for this one.

It tells the story of test flight pilot Hal Jordon, through fate becoming a Green Lantern, one of many owners of magical rings who function as police for the universe. Voicing Hal is a familiar voice in Christopher Meloni of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” fame. Joining him are Michael Madsen, Victor Garber, Kurtwood Smith and John Larroquette making this one of the biggest ventures put out by DC Universe so far.

Returning from “Wonder Woman”, are director Laura Montgomery, and producer Bruce Timm. Both are DC mainstays and certainly bring credibility to anything they do. So look for “Green Lantern: First Flight” this summer. It will be available as a special edition 2-disc version on DVD and Blu-Ray for $24.98 and $29.99 and a single disc DVD for $19.98.
