First Green Lantern trailer released

For those who have not seen. I think this is better:

Looks like there's no need to see any movie starting with the word "Green" next year. Though I suppose I'd see this over The Green Hornet any day of the week.

I thought this looked pretty intriguing, though I am a Ryan Reynolds fan.

I think casting Reynolds as the lead (especially with that outfit) is going to pull in a large female contingent that probably wouldn't have seen the movie otherwise. Good for profits if nothing else.

I'm calling it now: Dane Cook as the Green Arrow.

Meh. Iron Man can be goofy and cocky, because that's Tony Stark to an extent. It works within the character. Hal Jordan? Not so much. I expect suckitude.

Tony Stark was egotistical in the comics and a bit cocky, but not goofy. Hal Jordan was pretty much a boy scout and could come off "holier than thou" at times, but I have to agree that he isn't goofy either.

The suit, yeaaaaa, I can do without seeing every striation of his body in the movie as well.

Most of the goofiest people I know are Boy Scouts. In fact, if I had to pick one group of people who could be weird, goofy, and fun while doing good, hard, professional work, I'd pick the Boy Scouts. Or at least I'd pick the ones around here.

Something to bear in mind about the trailer: its job is to sell the film to the general public. Remember what the general public knows about superheroes. They know the dark and growly of Batman and Wolverine. They know Spider-man is insecure and a bit awkward. They know that Iron Man is a wise-ass. Green Lantern isn't dark and growly, but if they cut the trailer to show elements that remind people of Spider-man and Iron Man then they're promising people some more of what they already like. Once they're in the theater then the film can show people what makes Green Lantern cool. I have no idea if it'll actually succeed on that front, but I think it's too early to condemn it.

Most of the Boy Scouts I know are boring. Some are really cool, though.

Looks fine to me. Over the top graphics, but looks well done enough for my suspension of disbelief to take it. The CGI on the suit body looks a bit off... kinda proportionally off or something, but it was only there for a second. I'll go see it.

Just saw this. I couldn't find a more appropriate thread, so *cough* me if there is one.

Seth Rogan ruined this movie. Jay Choi is good. The premise isn't too bad. I felt like he couldn't take anything seriously, and when he did try, it fell flat.

So, you saw the Green Hornet, right?

Anyway, I heard a review on the radio last night in which the guy seemed to really like it a lot. I'm guessing one will have to like Rogan to like the movie, though.

I knew I clicked the wrong thread.

It's easy to get crappy movies with superheroes with the surname "Green" mixed up.

I wonder when they'll make a Green Arrow movie, just to really mess with people's heads...

The other day I saw a movie called Greenberg, but I don't think he was a superhero...

To make amends for my mis-post, I offer:

Kind of relieved that it wasn't just me that thought the trailer made the movie look freaking terrible. I thought it was going to be the fantastic four all over again.

As long as the costume reads like digitized bodypaint, I will still take issue.

The world could use more digitized body paint.

Well, the warmer climes, at least.

Funny, I don't remember any complaints about Mystique's costume in X-men.

I would love it if they included that makeup session instead of Nightcrawler's on the special edition discs.

Real bodypaint is far more acceptable than CG bodypaint. To be fair, I also never joined in any of the X-Men movie discussions here. I think we can all be happy about that.

Thank goodness Mystique's costume didn't have creepy muscular striations.

In what crazy world would someone think a CGI mask and eyes would be a better and cheaper solution then just making a freaking mask.

That's a really eerie gif, Sinatar. I can't stop watching it.

Will the new trailer edit out Ryan Reynolds?

And people on the internet are unhappy about Thor?

Hmm... Dude looks like he was attacked with a lasso tool. The borders of the "suit" don't blend with areas that were left as skin. The end result looks kinda unnatural especially that part at the end of the trailer when he activates the suit and is flexing. It's as if his head doesn't belong to that body.

Can't... look... away....

I guess since the suit obvious has no pockets, he keeps his wallet and keys between his collarbones?

The basis of the character is that he got a magical ring from a purple alien that lets him create anything he wants out of green energy, and you're worried about where he keeps hi wallet?
