Four Minutes of Green Lantern from WonderCon..

Now we’re talking.

I am very excited about Warner Brothers’ upcoming Green Lantern, despite some of the difficulties with the first trailer. This second batch of footage has significantly restored my faith, even if it doesn’t address all my concerns from the last footage (bad dialogue and a god-awful comic relief character). At least the CGI looks better, even if there’s still work to do on the costume. Here’s hoping they can pull it together before the release date in June.

If you’re looking for an introduction to the character, why not have a look at our handy introduction.

I like the tone of it much better. It’s less “generic superhero” (which was a dumb approach in a market over-saturated with superhero films) and more “epic space opera”, which I hope might set it apart from the competition. I always though that the “space opera” angle would be the right one to push with the character, as it has a wonderful Star Wars vibe to it.

  1. My only issue with this film is that I don’t think I can take Ryan Reynolds seriously for even a moment. I think it all stems back to his rendition of “I swear” 😐 I sometimes wish there was a little more selectivity in casting these roles. That said, it’s difficult to think of any mainstream actor that could carry it. I’m not quite sure what to think until I watch it through!
