Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released the official trailer for the upcoming Green Lantern: Beware My Power animated film that spotlights John Stewart in his first lead animated feature. Back in October 2021, Warner Bros revealed a new slate of animated features that would be released and on that list along with Catwoman: Hunted, and Teen Titans Go & DC Superhero Girls, was Green Lantern: Beware My Power.
John Stewart was created by the late Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams, who passed away last week. Stewart first appeared in 1972’s Green Lantern #87. Since his debut, Stewart has gone head-to-head with some of DC’s most formidable villains and been an integral member of Green Lantern Corps and the Justice League. While ‘Beware My Power’ isn’t Stewart’s first time being featured in an animated film, it is his first time headlining. Actor Phil LaMarr previously voiced the hero in the DC Animated Universe. Voicing the titular character now is Aldis Hodge (Black Adam, One Night in Miami, City on a Hill) —who many may know will be bringing another DC Super Hero to life on the big screen, Hawman, in the upcoming Black Adam starring opposite Dwayne Johnson slated for release later this year.
The official synopsis: “In Green Lantern: Beware My Power, recently discharged Marine sniper John Stewart is at a crossroads in his life, one which is only complicated by receiving an extraterrestrial ring which grants him the powers of the Green Lantern of Earth. Unfortunately, the ring doesn’t come with instructions – but it does come with baggage, like a horde of interplanetary killers bent on eliminating every Green Lantern in the universe. Now, with the aid of the light-hearted Green Arrow, Adam Strange and Hawkgirl, this reluctant soldier must journey into the heart of a galactic Rann/Thanagar war and
somehow succeed where all other Green Lanterns have failed.”
Starring along side Hodge is an incredibly talent voice cast which includes Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Pachinko) as Green Arrow, Ike Amadi (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, Superman: Man of Tomorrow) as Martian Manhunter, Brian Bloom (The A-Team, Mass Effect) as Adam Strange, Jamie Gray Hyder (Law & Order: SVU, True Blood) as Hawkgirl, Mara Junot (Call of Duty franchise, Genshin Impact) as Lyssa Drak & Banth Dar, Jason J. Lewis (Justice League Action) as Ganthet & Captain Kantus, Keesha Sharp (Empire, Lethal Weapon) as Vixen, Simon Templeman (Uncharted franchise) as Sardath & Console Voice, Rick D. Wasserman (Batman: The Killing Joke) as Sinestro, Sunil Malhotra (Mortal Kombat 11, The Legend of Korra) as Power Ring and Rannian Commander, and additional voices provided by Nolan North (Young Justice, Rick and Morty, American Dad!).
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the PG-13 rated Green Lantern: Beware My Power is directed by Jeff Wamester (Justice Society: World War II) from a script co-written by John Semper (Static Shock, Fraggle Rock) and Ernie Altbacker (Justice League Dark: Apokolips War). Jim Krieg (Justice League vs. The Fatal Five) is producer, supervising producer is Butch Lukic (Batman: The Long Halloween), and Sam Register is Executive Producer.
According to the official press release, fans will get to witness the action-packed induction of John Stewart to the Green Lantern Corps, and his first thrilling adventure alongside some familiar faces, when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Green Lantern: Beware My Power on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital on July 26, 2022.
