The Green Lantern Trailer Is Online (But I Still Hate Ryan Reynolds)
Okay, okay, okay, so the The Green Lantern (2011) trailer did quell my fanboy worries. And it does look better on a computer monitor than it did on "Entertainment Tonight" Tuesday night.
But I still hate Ryan Reynolds.
Despite the fact that I consider myself a Marvel Comics loyalist, some of my first comic book memories involve the iconic DC Comics characters.
I vaguely recall this Green Lantern cover but I vividly recall running out into my grandparents' backyard with a plastic ring from a supermarket gumball machine and an old iron lantern -- red, though -- and reciting the Lantern's motto.
So, for someone like me, just finally hearing:
"In brightest day, in blackest night..."
over scenes from the film in the trailer is enough to get me excited.
Check out the trailer in glorious Quicktime here.
