So this guy

emeraldtwilight.jpg

Is getting his own movie. Starring

sabrina1.jpg
Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordon. People feel that he is not suited for the role, as he has a personality which famously Hal lacks. Can this work in his advantage? Why am I asking you?

Blake Lively as Carol Ferris. She's Hal's boss and eventually turns into a flying pink stripper. HAHA comic books!

mark-strong-sunshine.jpg

Mark Strong as Sinestro. He starts out as the greatest Green Lantern of them all, then becomes space Hitler. Also looks completely amazing in this movie.

peter-sarsgaard.jpg

Peter Sarsgard as Hector Hammond. I never watched any movie with this guy in it. But he plays a guy who gets a giant head. And I don't know, mind powers or something.

In supporting roles are Tim "Snuck out of Shawshank through a shit tunnel" Robbins as Senator Hammond, Geoffry "Crazy Pirate" Rush as the voice of Tomar-Re, Micheal Clark "Holy Shit I'm Huge" Duncan as the drill sargent of the Corps Kilowog, Angela "Strange Days" Bassit as Amanda "The Wall" Waller, and Clancy "Fucking Lex Luthor" Brown as the voice of the big bad, Parrallax.

    this movie doesn't look too bad but this year seems like it is way too overstuffed with super hero flicks

    this movie hinges entirely on the appeal of ryan reynolds, and how far people can/can't look past these fruit roll up spaceman suits

    It

    I mean it just reeks of "Iron Man was really good, lets do that."

    cause Hal Jordan, while a ladies man, was never hilarious or particularly clever. He was basically Tom Cruise in Top Gun: The Superhero.

    But now we have Reynolds doing goofy shit, which is fine, but man it is so blatant.

    I will say the Green Lantern Corps itself and Oa look really fucking cool.

    but they have said Superman and Batman and whatever won't be tying in to Green Lantern or anything

    but they still want to do a Justice League movie somehow

    well, maybe in the context of it being successful critically

    they're probably making a bit of money on advertising and that cartoon, and more pre-film merch

    With different versions of superheroes that had their own films a year before and are also played by different actors?

    Yes, this is a good plan

    it's one of those things where you just kinda imagine the interviews they'll have after the film is put out

    "mr reynolds what'll the sequel focus on"

    "well, the internal conflict over having...so much power. we're also gonna try and really give a little fan service. also, if most of our big overhead costs are covered again we're gonna try and make everything not look retarded as hell"

    They tried and failed with a plan like that before.

    Outside of Batman I have no faith in DC's cinematic vision. If movies turn out good that's great, but I have to see the good.

    I want this to be good, but it seems to me they made some pretty bad design decisions. Mostly notably Hal's mask/eyes, and the huge-head guy. Unless that's only a transitional state for 5 minutes or something, it's going to be hard to take him seriously as a bad guy.

    This is exactly how I felt about the new X-men movie and apparently that's pretty good? Who even knows any more, I thought Iron Man 2 was going to be the best super hero movie in a long while and it was dogshit.

    A month ago I was sure that Thor would be better than the new X-Men, and then it turned out to be kind of dull. Dunno if it's because expectations for comic book movies have gotten higher or if they've just been genuinely underwhelming as of late.

    I think they're about the level they've always been, with Iron Man being considerably above that level

    I think Captain America will reach this level though.

    Man I wouldn't call Iron Man 2 dogshit

    You've got a point about First Class though, I saw their take on Mystique and Beast and immediately thought "oh crap what are they doing"

    Granted the later trailer that spoiled pretty much the entire finale made me reconsider
