Opinions are split here at the QB when it comes to the upcoming Green Lantern movie. Some of us seem to be disappointed with the artistic direction, while others remain hopeful and optimistic. After this footage, released from this past week’s Wondercon… I don’t think any opinions are going to change. His suit still glows green, and the lantern still fails at looking anything like a lantern. If neither of those technicalities bother you, this footage is going to give you a triple-nerdgasm. You might want to bite on a pencil.
If you’ve been wondering why everything to ever utter an oath is getting an action figure this summer, that clip does a good job of explaining how they’re tying them all in: a giant planet full of aliens. Seriously, this thing is like the antithesis of Nolan’s Batman; with Batman Begins, the film tried its best to create a version of the Dark Knight that we could imagine popping up in the real world. With Warner Brother’s Green Lantern, they’re going in the opposite direction. They’re telling you to sit down, buckle up, and prepare for some will-controlled green chain-guns.
