Special Edition Podcast
Running Time: 00:25:21
06.19.2011 – We're back for another comic book movie special edition podcast, and unlike the last one, this discussion of the eagerly awaited Green Lantern movie isn't as gushy. While Josh, Conor and Ron are in agreement that the movie isn't as bad as some are making it out to be, the movie certainly has it's problems….
It all comes down to this for DC Entertainment! Will the movie-going public warm up to a DC Comics hero that doesn't strike fear into the hearts of cowardly and superstitious criminals or isn't a strange visitor from another planet? DC Entertainment sure hopes that John and Joan Q. Public warm up to Ryan Reynolds' Hal Jordan as much as they did Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.
Will it work? We'll know soon enough!
In a summer full of comic book movies, Green Lantern is certainly the riskiest, possibly the priciest, and the one met with the most pre-release derision. Hell, Warner Bros. has already admitted to bungling the pre-release marketing.
But now that Green Lantern has finally hit screens none of that matters. The most important concern is: will the film be good? But for everyone who wants to see a Flash movie or a Wonder Woman movie or a Hawkman movie or a Justice League movie the most important concern might just be: will the film be popular?
Are you going to see Green Lantern? Of course you are! So let's talk about it!
If you haven't seen the movie yet be forewarned – there be SPOILERS ahoy! So don't scroll down any further if you are sensitive to that kind of thing.
