One movie that many a comic book fan is looking forward to is a big screen adaptation of Green Lantern. Much like Iron Man, the Green Lantern has been under the radar of mainstream audiences, but has an amazing fan following. And under the right circumstances, he too can rise out of cinematic ashes and become another great comic book movie franchise. The Green Lantern movie, which is being targeted for a 2010 release, is currently on the books with “Everwood” and “Eli Stone” creator Greg Berlanti attached to write and direct.
And in order to get the job, Berlanti had to give one hell of a pitch to Warner Bros., as his resume doesn’t exactly scream big budget comic book movie. As part of that pitch, Berlanti enlisted the help of illustrator Brian Murray, who drew up a sampling of concept art that helped Berlanti secure the project. Earlier today, Murray posted some of the concept art to his website, MurrayStudios.com. We’ve got a sampling for your viewing pleasure below.
