Green Lantern: Beware My Power is coming to 4k Blu-Ray on July 26, 2022. That’s right – DC’s cosmic hero returns to our screens in the form of his own animated film.
“In Green Lantern: Beware My Power, newly discharged Marine sniper John Stewart finds himself at a crossroads in his life, one complicated only by receiving an alien ring that grants him the powers of Earth’s Green Lantern,” reads the official summary.
Previously announced in 2021, the animated film Green Lantern features John Stewart in animated form.
But it seems his transition to Green Lantern is far from straightforward.
“Unfortunately, the ring doesn’t come with instructions – but it does come with baggage, like a horde of interplanetary killers bent on wiping out every Green Lantern in the universe. Now, with the help of Green Arrow Light-hearted, Adam Strange and Hawkgirl, this reluctant soldier must journey into the heart of a Rann/Thanagar galactic war and somehow succeed where all the other Green Lanterns have failed.
A new trailer gives us our first look at John’s fate…and it looks pretty cool too. Green Lantern last appeared on the big screen in 2011’s critical film Green Lantern… but has yet to make its Justice League debut in Warner Bros.’ current pantheon.
Still, this upcoming animated feature sets the stage for an interesting addition to DC’s animated works, focusing on John Stewart rather than traditional Green Lantern Hal Jordan.
The 4K Blu-Ray includes the new featurette, John Stewart: The Power and the Glory – a new documentary that explores the legacy of John Stewart, including new interviews with those who helped shape his story.
