So I guess there is a reason why Warner Bros. and director Martin Campbell don’t appear to be in any hurry to cast their leading man. According to Box Office Mojo, it could be that the release date for “Green Lantern” has been delayed for six more months, so now instead of a late 2010 release, the comic book movie will instead bow in the Summer of 2011. Which, actually, would make more sense. Why would you release a big-budget comic book movie in December? Summer is the way to go. Lots more kids to buy popcorn.
Nothing else to say, except here’s a quick rundown of the character’s bio (thanks, Wiki):
Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.
So, 2011, then. I can dig it.
