Summer 2011 is the summer that comic book fans have been waiting for. At the very least, four comic book based movies are slated to be released.
Yesterday, the trailer for “Green Lantern,” the only offering from the DCU, was released and it looks like someone's trying to replicate the success of Iron Man, though I don't see Hal Jordan and Tony Stark as similar characters. Still, the way Ryan Reynolds seems to play the character is in a similarly snarky manner to RDJ's Stark.
Despite Reynolds portrayal of everyone's favorite emerald warrior, the rest of the movie looks pretty solid. The mythology seems to be all there. They didn't shy away fro the alien characters, including the completely ridiculous looking Tomar-Re. They tease us with a little bit of the ring's potential and Mark Strong IS Sinestro.
The suit looks a little weird though. I guess we'll see how it all plays out.
For those of you who have been under a rock for the past 24 hours, here's the trailer.
