I was rooting for you, “Green Lantern.”
I love Green Lantern comics. Sure, they’re dorky and about an intergalactic space cop. But they also represent some of the best science fiction available in the comics world.
I was thrilled that WB seemed to be taking this property seriously. Hiring Martin Campbell, the man that re-booted Bond (twice), was a great step. Getting fan favourite Ryan Reynolds in the lead was another. He wasn’t my choice for Hal, but he wasn’t a bad one. Rounding out the cast with Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong and up-and-coming it girl Blake Lively made me think that this could be a really great movie.
Until I saw the trailer.
I’m not sure who thought “Green Lantern” equals crappy CGI and cheesy action film platitudes, but that’s what we’ve got.
So, when does “Thor” come out again?
