DC

Here he is. Big and bold. Hal Jordan sporting a look that could break the arm of a truck driver and standing in front of an alien world. Warners has been trying its best to prove that Hal Jordan’s suit won’t make him look like a cheap Mardi Gras body paint enthusiast, and this new poster for Green Lantern actually goes a long way to help that out. It was also wise to show off the huge landscape in the background – what I can only assume is Oa with the green light beaming out of its secret meeting cavern to light the ways of time. Check it out for yourself:

Two WWII-era characters, glistening with Americana, fighting for truth and justice. One is getting a big screen adaptation by way of Marvel. The other is languishing in the development hell unable to even secure a television show. What’s the difference between Captain America and Wonder Woman? Charlie Jane Anders over at io9 asks and answers the question with a sharp editorial highlighting the things catapulting one character and dragging down the other. All of her points are strong and valid – there’s no natural bridge for Wonder Woman from WII to present day; she’s too steeped in the Greek mythology of Gods and Goddesses; she has a questionable reason for going to America and dressing like she founded the country. All great points (which should be celebrated for not pulling the sexism card), but the situation boils down to a simpler (also completely non-sexist) fact. Captain America is a great character, and Wonder Woman is stupid.

Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern is DC’s big hope at finally being invited to the adult’s table alongside Marvel, so a lot is riding on this particular green superhero. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is a test pilot who fantasizes about The Last Starfighter and wishes a colored alien would come to take him away. His prayers are answered… kind of… and he finds himself in possession of a very special secret decoder ring and a destiny to help defend the universe. Along for the ride are his highly unbelievable pilot buddy Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), his slightly more believable bespectacled friend Thomas (Taika Waititi), and evil scientist Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard). Can Jordan become the hero the universe needs?

In August, I was fortunate enough to trade the heat of Arizona for the heat and humidity of Louisiana in order to visit the set of The Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds, a ring that makes him powerful, Mark Strong, Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard. I can’t say much about the visit yet (because of the court order), and I wasn’t the only one there (which is why they added “conspiracy” to the charges), but the set visit did yield a ton of really cool information about the film, and FSR will be delivering it straight to your brain like no other site can. While you wait on pins and needles awaiting all that comic book goodness, check out these two pieces of concept art that you’ll only see here (and several other websites). They both feature the design of Oa – the planet where the Green Lantern Corps makes its headquarters – and they’re both worthy of hanging up on your wall next to your poster for The Last Starfighter: The Musical. Don’t let evil or these concept pieces escape your sight, and remember to click to make the images much, much bigger:

With all that Comic Book Convention 2010 stuff slowly dying out, someone out there in the superhero world had to pipe up and keep the train rolling down the track. After all the Marvel talk, it might as well be a DC property. The rumor of the day is that Jon Hamm – the actor known as Mad Men’s Don Draper and Liz Lemon’s impossible boyfriend – might be up for the role of Clark Kent (a man who, if you look at him without the glasses, resembles Superman an awful lot). This isn’t a done deal, but if it’s headed that way, it’s enough prompting to take a look at the pros and cons of what casting him might mean.

My first troubling thought though – ‘Will there be fatalities? So will I see Batman get his head cut off or something? Because I don’t know if I could handle that’.

Is the Justice League Dead?

According to CHUD, a quick conversation with Joel Silver revealed that Justice League: Mortal had been “tabled”. Of course, that’s a euphemism for “dead” or “mostly dead” or “will be released in 2011 with a new name”.
