Think Green!

Green Lantern— Woo hoo!–The Green Lantern is coming to the big screen!–Just not real soon…think June 2011.  At least we’ll get a chance to see it before the Mayan calendar runs out in December 2012…

…yeah, I know that a lot of you guys are big Marvel rather than DC comics fans, but one can live in both universes…Infinite diversity in infinite combinations, right?–Anyhow, the Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds in the title role will be shot in New South Wales, Australia, presumably beginning in November 2009.  For those of you who can’t wait until then, a DVD feature-length Green Lantern animated adventure will be available soon.

For those of you not familiar with Green Lantern,  Superman was born a hero, Batman became a hero, but Green Lantern was chosen to be a hero…see, he’s been granted a mystical ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic, multi-species squadron tasked with keeping peace in the universe.  The ring has to be changed in a lantern every so often (you know how re-chargeable batteries are), hence the title…and the ring, once charged, projects a green energy that can transmute to matter, and basically do almost anything.  There is also an accompanying secret oath that I’ve had memorized since childhood.

…so “let those who worship evil’s might,” beware the power of Green Lantern’s light!

    I remember seeing this prize-winner for an on-line contest involving fan-created movie posters for DCU heroes? It showed a great likeness of Hal Jordan aiming his ring up towards the stars, and a pencil-thin beam of green light issuing from it.

    The green-lettered caption read:

    “In Brightest Day,
    In Blackest Night…
    In Theaters July 4th”

    Definitely brilliant!

      I love The Green Lantern! He was one of the DC heroes without a sidekick, but then again he had all of his “Guardians of the Universe” peeps to hang around with!
