WB sets new release dates: Green Lantern moved back to summer 2011

Warners had been targeting Green Lantern for a December 2010 release, but they've reshuffled their release dates and have now set it for the 17th June 2011. They've also pushed Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch back from a 2010 release to a new target release date of the 25th March 2011. Finally, they're targeting Happy Feet 2 for release on the 18th November 2011.

Not yet, but the latest rumor is that Bradley Cooper (from Alias and Wedding Crashers) is the top contender for the part.

Moving it back to a summer film is a good thing. That means they have faith in it (summer movies are meant to be blockbusters).

Not really surprising, especially since Summer 2011 looks to be Dark Knightless.

Isn't Captain America and Avengers still on track for summer 2011?
Avoiding inhouse competition may be the least thing they have to worry about.

No, Marvel has changed their plans. The Avengers is now slated for summer 2012, while Thor and Captain America are slated for summer 2011 (as is Columbia's Spider-Man 4).

The release slate for summer 2011 currently looks like this:

May 6 - Spider-Man 4
May 20 - Thor
June 3 - Kung Fu Panda 2
June 17 - Green Lantern
June 24 - Cars 2
July 15 - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II
July 22 - The First Avenger: Captain America

Sucker Punch has been described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns". Zack Snyder's description is that it's about a girl in an insane asylum who fantasizes that she can escape and has crazy adventures in the past and the future. The cast is made up of young actresses: Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish.

July 22 - The First Avenger: Captain America
I'd forgotten about Spidey 4, it makes my point even more dramatic, regardless of how people feel about Spidey 3.

So Warners will have Spiderman, Thor and Captain America to deal with vs Green Lantern. True the odds are that one of the Marvel properties would bottom out but Marvels track record is fairly good even if one of those should only do Incredible Hulk type numbers from last summer.

GL will really have to be top notch(I hope it is) to break out of that comic filled summer line up.

Re: WB sets new release dates: Green Lantern moved back to summer 2011

Spider-Man 4 will be released a month and a half before Green Lantern. It'll be played out by mid-June. And Thor will be mostly played out by then. Summer films tend to make most of their money in their first three weeks of release these days. So direct competition from the other comic book films won't be much of a factor. Of course each time there's a summer with a lot of superhero films there's the worry that audiences will tire of them, but in the case of summer 2011 the four films will be very different from one another, so hopefully that won't be a factor.

It all will come down to how good the movie is...and odds are only two of those movies will be 'good'. I am not sold on THOR or CAPTAIN AMERICA being hits SIMPLY because they are in the AVENGERS arc.

If DC puts out a GREEN LANTERN more akin to CATWOMAN or BATMAN FOREVER, it will damage DC movies for years to come...because this is the SUPERHERO movie we have all been waiting for. You can have your IRONMAN and your WOLVERINE...but GREEN LANTERN is my favorite hero in the bunch...so it better deliver the goods..

Given that the movie is being directed by Martin Campbell, who previously directed THE MASK OF ZORRO, GOLDENEYE, and CASINO ROYALE, I think the odds are against this being another CATWOMAN . . . .

Campbell has a good track record with heroic action-adventure films.

Right, this is true no disagreement there on the 'played out' length.
You do touch on what I was getting at though in the part I bolded.
Summer '08 had 5 that were very different from each other and while none outright bombed its easy to say that Hellboy 2(opened 5 days prior to TDK) could've done better and Incredible Hulk as well if Iron Man wasn't still playing so strong. IM was still in the top 10(due to Speed Racer & Caspian doing poorly) when Hulk debuted.
Anything can happen and who knows if something else gets moved around. What if Rogen doesn't get shooting on Green Hornet late this summer as planned and its pushed back into summer '11? That would make 5 again, stranger things have happened. Still its a crowded superhero summer just at 4 films.

Summer '08
-Iron Man
-Incredible Hulk
-Wanted
-Hellboy 2:Golden Army
-The Dark Knight
-Hancock, makes 6 since it was superhero-ish

Summer '11
-Spiderman 4
-Thor
-Captain America
-Green Lantern
