The Green Lantern. You Know, That Guy, Whose Green, With the Lantern. And Stuff.

Hey, it’s the Green Lantern! You know, the one from your childhood? Oh come on, everyone knows who the Green Lantern is, right? The former test pilot turned intergalactic beat cop? Um, okay, so maybe not a whole lot of people know who GL is, but Warner Bros. has spent a lot of money trying to fill you in. Will it work? I don’t know, but it’s certainly worked for the people over at the Onion News Network. Here’s their report on the sure-to-be comic book hit. Cause, you know, who doesn’t love Green Lantern and his, um, ring power, or some such.

On a side note, “Green Lantern” is currently polling at a 25% freshness rating with critics at Rotten Tomatoes from 21 reviews. This … is probably not what Warner Bros. wanted to hear. On the bright side, “Green Lantern” co-star Blake Lively sure has been getting tons of news, huh? Thank you, smartphones!

The Martin Campbell-directed film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Temuera Morrison, Jenna Craig, Jon Tenney, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett, Taika Cohen, Jeff Wolfe, and Michael Clarke Duncan, saves the universe June 17, 2011.

      WOW! Still holding my own judgement. I understand that it’s a CBM but does it HAVE to be compared to EVERY CBM to come before it. I mean seriouly do we compare every sci-fi flick to Star Wars or Star Trek, eventually yes but not when it first comes out. But again I’ll reserve my own judgement because I actually fund some redeeming qualities in both Ang Le’s “Hulk” and “Fantastic Four.” Were they great? No but they weren’t completely horrid!

  • Juggernaut

    That was really funny!

    That’s classic – you could probably do one of those for pretty much every comic book movie being made these days!

    LMAO!! Nice. Still want to see it. Just the space opera setting for part of it alone sets it apart from most comic filmds. Thor in Asgard is what its being compared to which is silly. The tone of the film itself seems more like Iron Man. But whatever the critic say I plan on going this weekend.
