It was recently revealed that both Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series had been cancelled by Cartoon Network.

The animated TV shows were apparently axed, at least in part, because of underwhelming sales for toys associated with the series.

According to Bruce Timm, the co-developer of the Green Lantern series, the Ryan Reynolds feature film hurt his show.

He recently noted that retailers were stuck with a lot of film merchandise that they couldn't sell. They were reluctant, and in some cases refused, to take on more Green Lantern merchandise.

Timm also said that the Green Lantern series was one of his favorite projects of all time. He previously co-created/developed popular animated shows like Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited.
