Spoiler Talk: Green Lantern

Week of Geek: Green Lantern

As far as mindless summer diversions go, Green Lantern isn’t that bad.

Had to pause before writing anything else because “isn’t that bad” is about as enthusiastic there is to get about Green Lantern. It’s a satisfactorily entertaining adaptation and one of the few movies whose FX are actually worth the gouge in price for a 3D viewing. In a world where 3D-ocrity rules, the visuals are such that it almost makes up for the substandard, bordering on generic, origin story. The most acutely negative thing I can write about the Green Lantern experience is that X-Men: First Class and Thor were released before it, perhaps setting the bar too high so that “adequate” is merely…adequate. At least you won’t be wondering why you bothered to pay for those worthless 3D glasses.

Time for some SPOILER TALK! Below are SPOILERS for Green Lantern. Feel free to add your thoughts in the Comments section.

Week of Geek: Green Lantern

Green LanternGreen Lantern
Directed by Martin Campbell
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard
Release date: June 17, 2011

I went into Green Lantern expecting a solid summer action movie and that’s exactly what I got. Therefore, I don’t get a lot of the hatred directed towards this film. Critics have been giving this long-gestating DC comic book adaptation a regular blanket party and for most of the same reasons that those same critics spazzed out over Thor. Personally I’ve never been a fan of the character and outside of some episodes of Super Friends and the occasional glance at an issue of the comic, I don’t even know that much about the Green Lantern. After seeing the movie, it’s evident I have some catching up to do. Good thing I have access to some of his recent appearances in animated DTV movie form.

‘Green Lantern’ Wraps Shooting; Writers Already Well At Work On Sequel

The Movie God   |  @   |

A couple of days ago, comic book writer and talent behind many Green Lantern books announced via his Twitter account that filming of the movie adaption starring Ryan Reynolds had officially wrapped.

Despite the fact that the movie has yet to prove its worth at the box office, that’s not preventing Warner Brothers from taking steps toward setting up the potential sequel. A couple of months ago the studio hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim to begin work on a treatment of the script, and now Michael Goldenberg has been brought in to write as well. Goldberg performed a rewrite on the script for the first movie from a treatment by Berlanti, Guggenheim, and Green, so this appears to be their way of doing things.

Goldenberg has previously penned Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, as well as Peter Pan (2003), Contact, and Bed of Roses.

SDCC 2010: ‘Green Lantern’ Details & Footage Description

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

SDCC 2010: Green Lantern Panel: Ryan ReynoldsThe cast and crew of the Green Lantern movie was on hand at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con to discuss the upcoming film, due out in 2011. Also, the very first footage from the film was show (see description of it here below).

Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns, decked out in Green Lantern gear, was introduced first to get things rolling and said the week he spent on set was the best experience of his life. Considering Johns’ history working with legendary director Richard Donner, that’s saying a lot.

“When I first worked for Richard Donner, we talked about making Green Lantern and one of the producers said ‘Can we do the movie without the ring?’ and right there I thought: “There’s never going to be a Green Lantern movie,” said Johns, who added that it’s been incredible to see what director Martin Campbell and crew have done.

The costume itself wasn’t shown, which Campbell described as being lines of musculature. “A lot of thought has been given to it and it is a work of progress,” Campbell said.

Warner Brothers Signs Writers for ‘Green Lantern 2’ and ‘The Flash’

That’s right you heard correctly, even though Green Lantern hasn’t even had a proper teaser trailer yet DC Entertainment has already hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim to write a treatment for the sequel.

Not only will the three writers be writing the sequel to Green Lantern, which isn’t set to release until next year, but that they will also be writing a treatment for a Flash movie.

Is this all just an answer to Disney/Marvel’s plans to release multiple lower tier characters along with their already planned larger releases or is it a result of Geoff John‘s new position in DC Entertainment? Whatever the reason, I definitely think it is a good thing to see that DC is finally taking their live-action movies seriously and are releasing more than one Batman movie every year or two.

Movie Review: Edge Of Darkness
space
Jack Bauerstein83   |

edge of darknessEdge of Darkness
Directed by Martin Campbell
Staring Mel Gibson, Ray Winstone, Danny Huston
Rated R
Release date: January 29, 2010

It has been exactly eight years since Mel Gibson headlined his own movie (and if you guessed Signs, you get shiny bonus points) but that does not mean he hasn’t been in the spotlight. When he was not directing movies depicting Jesus’ death or Mayans, he was caught in one drunken scandal after another. Hollywood is a strange place though and everyone is one hit movie away from being a hot property again. Perhaps Edge of Darkness, a revenge story set in Boston, is just what he is looking for.

Gibson stars as grizzled cop Thomas Craven, a devoted single father to his little girl Emma (Bojana Novakovic). During a trip home to see Thomas, Emma is taken, shot and killed by a masked assailant right at his front door. Led to believe this act was committed by a criminal from his past, Thomas spirals into grief and madness knowing he had a hand in his little girl’s death. However, when evidence comes up that perhaps the killer was targeting Emma all along, Grief begets violence as Thomas does whatever it takes to uncover the whole truth.

Kilowog

In the same story where Green Lantern director Martin Campbell revealed that Mark Strong was in negotiations to play Sinestro in the movie, he also had some other gems to share, like what other recognizable characters you will see in the movie.

For die hard fans of the comics and mythology, surely there is a dream wish list of characters that they would want to see brought to life. We know Ryan Reynolds will be playing the main Lantern, Hal Jordan; we know that Blake Lively will play his love interest; we know that Peter Sarsgaard is in talks to star as Dr. Hector Hammond.

So who else might pop up in the movie, and who will be cast to play them? Keep reading to find out!

Jackie Earle Haley NOT Sinestro In ‘Green Lantern’ But Mark Strong Might Be!

Sinestro

Jackie Earle Haley seems to typically gain the fantastic roles of his now-successful comeback to acting after lots and lots of rumors of his involvement. With both Watchmen and A Nightmare on Elm Street, it seemed like Haley was the fan-favorite for the roles, and all of that attention contributed to him netting him the parts. Another big role that Haley has been rumored to be up for a long while now, is the villain role of Sinestro in the Green Lantern live-action feature, but it appears that this time, the rumors will remain just that, and we won’t see Haley involved.

While speaking to MTV at the premier of his new movie Edge of Darkness, Lantern director Martin Campbell tackled the rumor with gusto, denying it in-full and even revealing that another popular actor was actually in talks for the role — an actor who may just be a better choice for the role than Haley was. You decide!
