For those of you that are fans of the Green Lantern and have seen the EW magazine cover of Ryan Reynolds as the green hero, I’m not sure how you feel about these new posters, but I must say I’m rather dissappointed. These bland and unimaginative illustrations hopefully are not a sign of things to come.
One thing I am glad about is that the DC, Marvel wars are starting to heat up. The Dark Knight was one of the highest grossing films ever, Superman is on its way back with Christopher Nolan consulting and now GL makes his awaited appearance.
But getting back to the posters, couldn’t someone else have done a better job? We recently unveiled Juan Doe’s new Machete comic cover, and he would have been the ideal candidate since he did DC’s Batman: The Joker’s Asylum Part IV: Scarecrow cover… and as one commenter stated about his work, “sick!“, we support that effervescent clamor! Below is his Scarecrow cover, cool huh?
Who did the Green Lantern posters? Oh well, no use crying over spilled milk. The film has a release date of June 17th, 2011. Perhaps there might be new posters before its due date in theaters.
Read the official synopsis before you check out the posters WB sent us and let us know what you think in our comments section below:
“In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan. Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.”
