I’m a geek for Green Lantern, and have been since I was just a little nerd. There’s home video of me running around the house at 7 years old, pointing my “power ring” at Sinestro/Mommy. So for the last few years, I’ve been in heaven as writer Geoff Johns revitalized the comic book and brought GL to the top of the sales charts, by creating a rich mythology for Hal Jordan and his supporting cast. There’s never been a better time to be a Green Lantern fan.
And now, the movie is right around the corner. The recently-wrapped Comic Con 2010 revealed all sorts of news about the upcoming adaptation, but nothing got my heart fluttering as fast as the posters.
I had been a little sour on Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, but the supporting cast inspires confidence (particularly Mark Strong), as does the video of Reynolds reciting the GL oath. Can’t wait!
