    Oh hells yes! Pretty good casting choices as well. Here's hoping this is the first of many GL movies.

    Not digging the costume at all, no white gloves and looks too much like armor. But LOVE that we're getting an animated GL. Can't wait.

    I was kinda hoping they'd stick with David Boreanaz for Hal Jordon, but Christopher Meloni is just as good.

    The costume looks alright to me, and I'm really liking most of the casting choices. The only one I'm not so sure about is Michael Madsen as Kilowog. I -like- Madsen enough, but I just never imagined Kilowog having a raspy, chain smoker's voice. We'll see how the final product looks though.

    I first heard about this this morning, glad to see there's pictures of it already. I'm excited, but not super-thrilled with the look of GL. Too armor-like for my tastes. I know I can overlook that as long as the story's good.

    I dunno. I saw Boodika┬┤s design. She looks cute and adorable, not the hatefull b*tch we know and love from the comics.

    That looks amazing! I can understand why people might not like the armored design, but I think it looks pretty cool.

    It is kinda weird that they are using Boodika rather than someone with a little more name recognition.

    Here's hoping that the next movie stars Kyle!

    Awesome, I love Christopher Meloni. If all you know if him is Law and Order SVU, you should pick up Wet Hot American Summer. He alone is worth watching that movie.

    Not crazy about the armored look of the GL costume, but Victor Garber as Sinestro is brilliant casting!

    The armor is the only downside I can see and I think I can look past it.

    I still wish the powers at WB would just give Bruce Timm the DCU Animated TV Division.

    OK, not TOO armorish. I can deal with the look.

    I have no idea who Christopher Meloni is, though. I looked at his IMDb page, and in the few things he's acted that I've seen, he's apparently played very minor roles.

    Victor Garber as Sinestro is awesome, though!
