Green Lantern news

Here's what the producer has to say about the tone of the movie:

Donald De Line: It is absolutely a big action/adventure piece and fantasy obviously as we go out into space with the Green Lantern. And it’s Hal Jordan. It will absolutely have a sense of humor as well, character based humor. So it’s not dark it that regard.

Is it more like an Iron Man?

Donald De Line: I would say the tone absolutely wants to live in that kind of a world.
Good news. More here.

Re: Green Lantern news

I've read a draft of the screenplay, and if they're still going with the one I read, I can definitely buy that. I felt the tone of the script closely resembled Iron Man, with moments that also gave me a vibe reminiscent of Spider-Man and Donner's Superman. It was a solid script and should make for a fun movie.

Wow, they actually are going to go big with the space/scifi stuff just like the fans have been saying they should...

...And are actually going to make the movie to begin with.

So I take they will not try to emulate Watchmen by having Hal create a green ax to kill his enemies with? DANG IT!

Although I do hope they meld in some of Kyle Raynor's creativity with like making big mechas or when he's in need of cooling down some skimpily clad babe in a bikini fanning him... I vote for Smith Cho!

Woo hoo!!! It's Hal Jordan!!!!!!!!!!

EDIT: I have nothing against John Stewart, far from it, but Hal had to be treated first IMO.

There's "Iron Man" light and there's "Fantastic Four" light. I hope it's the former.

Re: Green Lantern news

There are a lot more kinds than that. The good news is that it's apparently not going to be another somber comic movie. One or two of those a decade are enough.

Re: Green Lantern news

I'll see it. I'll suffer through Hal Jordan if, for no other reason, then the sequel will give us either Guy and/or Kyle. Alan showing up would be nice too.
