Green Lantern Trailer

OK, this is another one thats left us all a little terrified, though I doubt any of us would openly admit it.  With all of the Marvel movie’s coming out, those of us who specifically love the DC Universe are looking for a solid hit that doesnt star the Caped Crusader and Green Lantern could, potentially, be that hit.  But the complete lack of trailers, press or advertisement of any kind has us all scared that Warner Bros is dropping the ball on one of their most beloved characters, leaving him to die in Jonah Hex-land.  A few months ago, Warner Bros released a jokey trailer with star Ryan Reynolds smirking and throwing out one-liners.  A few weeks ago, Warner Bros released footage screened at Wondercon that nobody saw except those who knew to look for it. Well today, Warner Bros released this:

Hal Jordan, fuck yeah!  This is the trailer we have all been waiting for!  The film appears to be bringing all the scale and grandeur of the Green Lanterns to the big screen in a massive way.  A few days ago, Matt and I were talking to one of the security guards at the theater who pointing out that the movie “got it wrong because Green Lantern is black.”  We had to explain the idea of the corps, the yellow weakness and the fact that Hal Jordan, the first human Green Lantern of sector 2814, is considered by many to be the greatest Lantern the corps has ever seen.  There are a countless number of Green Lanterns patrolling our universe and I was a little afraid that this idea would get lost in the shuffle of introducing the character to the public, but clearly that isn’t the case.  Seeing Sinestro, Killowog, Tomar-Re and the rest of the corps assembled is something I never thought I would get to see brought to live action, especially so well.  I can genuinely say that I am excited for this film now.

How about you?  Does this trailer give you any more confidence in the upcoming film?
