Nicolas Cage would have been a poor Sinestro anyway.
WAIT WHAT AM I SAYING
WHAT IS THIS THREAD
When does Green Arrow come out?
Probably in the Green Lantern sequel, if there is one.
Right after Green Eggs & Ham.
I am going to murder everything.
This thread has become one for the archives. Also, my name is green.
Well, next time I know editing a thread to say "There is no Kato in this movie" is too subtle for Zaz.
I just post 'em, I don't read 'em.
Though the rumour that I can't read (started by Strilo, I suspect) is a canard.
It would be mildly amusing if this thread became a repository for all things "green". From environmentally safe products to a discussion of marijuana legalization to Green Lantern to Green Hornet to Green Arrow to the Green Manalishi by Peter Green, why not just go whole hog and call this thread "The Green Thread"? We're 82% there as it is.
Fan made trailer (amazing)
Warner Bros., take note.
Every time this thread is upped, I look in it to see exactly what tomfoolery Zaz has been up too. I'm very disappointed to find that everything is progressing smoothly.
Seriously though- that fan-made trailer is ASTOUNDING. I am blown away. I just wish the creed was a little clearer at the end.
That trailer has always been amazing. It re-ignited my faith that a Green Lantern movie could be done justice, all those months ago. I hope they do a good job with it. Too bad Filion isn't actually playing Hal.
Full movie is on YouTube
An instant classic!
A superhero with "Green" in his name is a dweeb.
I have spoken.
What about a mod with a green name?
Your name is Green Rogue and a half?
EXCLUSIVE: Quentin Tarantino Was Offered 'Green Lantern'
Posted 12/2/09 10:44 am ET by Eric Ditzian in DC Comics, Hot Stuff, News
"Quentin Tarantino recently revealed to MTV News that in creating his band of scalp-collecting Jewish-American soldiers in "Inglourious Basterds," the writer/director relied heavily on Marvel Comics' World War II-focused series, "Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos."
But Tarantino's presence at the intersection of comics and movies extends beyond his latest epic. During our interview, the filmmaker also divulged that he was once offered the chance to direct a big screen adaptation of an iconic DC Comics superhero.
"I was offered the 'Green Lantern,' " Tarantino told MTV News. "Not since it's been a script, but just like, 'Hey we own the 'Green Lantern.' Would you like it?'"
Tarantino declined the opportunity and "Lantern" joined the list of other franchises, like "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," that he was offered but never ended up taking on. "Green Lantern," of course, is now being helmed by Martin Campbell ("Casino Royale") and will star Ryan Reynolds.
Calling himself "a big comic book fan," Tarantino said there was a time in his 20s, while working at a video store, when all he wanted to see were comic book movies.
"So there's a little part of me that's like, 'Wow, if I was in my 20s, this would be the genre I'd want to specialize in," he said. "But they weren't making them then, or at least not the right ones. But there also is an aspect where I've kind of outgrown that a little bit."
Now that he's in his 40s and has been making features since 1992's "Reservoir Dogs," the director says he's no longer open to adapting any previously established franchise. What does get his creative juices flowing is the idea of exploring completely new superheroes and storylines.
"It wouldn't be an existing comic book character," he said. "I'm a writer. I'd want to use my imagination and not have to fight with geeks' memories of how this character should be and, 'Oh, I cast an actor as opposed to a bodybuilder' or it's not as good as the way [DC Comics artist] Neal Adams drew him.' If I were to do something like that, I would want the fun of coming up with the superhero myself."
Casting for the Great Green Whatever movie
My anticipation for this movie has been shot to hell.
Peter Sarsgaard is Dr. Hector Hammond
Never thought of Sarsgaard as the villainous type. At least not in a threatening sense.
Tim Robbins joins Green Lantern
