According to Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov yes we do and he’s hoping that the script for Green Lantern 2 will give us that.

As most people that have been to see Green Lantern will agree this film shouldn’t have a sequel. You would have thought the box office failure causing them not to make back the massive amount of money they spent on this film would be enough to cause them to rethink. But apparently Warner Brothers where not put off by this and still intend on making the trilogy they first promised. Read the rest of this entry »

Ok this latest trailer banishes all trace of the first ‘green lantern the comedy’ trailer that launches the marketing campaign. The move towards playing up the other worldly elements of the Green Lantern and giving it a more epic feel is definitely working on me. I’ve spent the last five minutes chanting the oath out in my office…good job I’m the only oen in at the moment.
I get the feeling sales of Green Lantern rings are about to go through the roof.

Now this is my favourite trailer so far for Green Lantern. I have not been impressed with the other trailers and I have not been sold on the CGI but this trailer has made me quite happy. Of course it could be because there is hardly any shots of Ryan Reynolds as GL. I have no problem with Reynolds but it was just that the film still looked unfinished. Also it is great to hear Geoffrey Rush telling the history of the Corps.

The more I see of this film the more I’m get excited about it. This latest poster is continuing the trend of playing up the epicness of the Green Lantern corps, rather than the very first trailer we were greeted to.
I admit I have stood alone in my bedroom, after seeing the last trailer , holding my plastic green ring aloft and bellowing to the empty room WE ARE THE CORPS!, WE ARE THE CORPS!
Roll on June.

Check out this brand new trailer for the upcoming Green Lantern. A lot of the footage I had already seen but combined with the new stuff this is still looking great. Be interesting to hear what GL fans think of this new trailer.

War of the Green Lanterns has marched on with Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors issue 8, Green Lantern issue 65 and Green Lantern Corps issue 59. In Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors issue 8, we see the fight that has been a year in the making: Hal Jordan vs Guy Gardner. In Sector 2000 on the uninhabited world known as the green house, Guy and Hal fight about Krona and the way in which Guy has tried to deal with the problem. Finally, the fear entity Parallax tries to get a grip of their rings leading them to take them off. They are left stranded in an ice world, searching for the Green Lantern safe house. In Green Lantern issue 65, with no rings, lost, the four human Lanterns try to regroup to work out a strategy to take down Krona. Hal has a plan: he has the rings that the leaders of the other corps were wearing before they were sucked into the book of the black. Choose a new corps, wield the light and free the Green Lanterns from Krona. In Green Lantern Corps (GLC) issue 59, after choosing their new rings, the human Lanterns try to get to the central power battery. Yet their new rings seem more difficult to control then they would have expected. The fate of Ganthet is revealed who has sacrificed himself to let Kyle and John get away.
Credit must go to each and everyone of these front covers. The art is stupendous with Green Lantern and GLC really showing how a comic book cover can be so crucial. Emerald Warriors wets the appetite as we are shown a scene from the Hal and Guy fight. For me personally, I have been awaiting this moment like a boy waits for Christmas since the end of Blackest Night so to see it finally on a cover made me even more excited. Yet Green Lantern and GLC are truly astounding. The sight of Hal bring a part of the Sinestro Corps and the four human Lanterns donning differing rings makes any Lantern fan’s mouth water. It drags you into wanting to read more even if you are not a huge Lantern fan. At it’s core, this is what covers should be doing and this month DC have shown a master class as to how to do it right.
Emerald Warriors does not disappoint. The fight between Hal and Guy is brutal and personal. It is a joy to watch this unfold. You really get a sense that Tomasi and Pasarin are enjoying themselves here. Hats off must go to Geoff Johns in Green Lantern. It is something that I struggle to understand but the quality of Johns’ books and stories seem to get better month in month out. I am quickly beginning to think he is not just the best talent the business has at the moment but possibly ever. The dialogue between Hal and Guy as they struggle to find the Green Lantern safe house is brilliant. For any struggling writer who cannot grasp how to write dialogue they should read some of Johns’ work. The man is a genius, making you feel. You laugh, cry and every other emotion with the characters he is using. The story is tight with Mahnke complimenting the writing brilliantly. Some of the art in this story arc has just been unbelievable in particular, Tyler Kirkham on GLC. The way he draws Kyle Rayner especially will blow you away. I personally think no other artist draws the character better then he does. Bedard like Johns, produces a strong script that keeps the story ticking over nicely.
One problem with the battle between Guy and Hal is that it would have been nice if it had gone on for longer. With something that has been teased for a year now, I expected it to last more than an issue. However if the fight had continued it could be argued it may have started to feel stale and could have weakened the pace of this fabulous story.
War of the Green Lanterns continues to get better and better. Somehow it has surpassed Blackest Night. You will laugh, cry, and feel every punch these characters take. It is comic book crack: you read the issues and you are desperately awaiting for the next issue to be released. A must read.

Kapow was a very special event especially for any Green Lantern fan. The UK premiere of the new animated feature film, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights did not disappoint. The film follows the corps as Rogue Guardian, Krona is attempting to bring down the very foundation of the Green Lanterns. Arisia, a new Green Lantern is being trained by Hal Jordan as he tells her tales of the corps.
Emerald Knights brilliantly covers all it’s basis. It is clearly a film that anybody could pick up and understand with DC obviously hoping that after the live action film comes out, the casual fan will invest in this. Further with the story relating to Krona it links perfectly with the War of the Green Lanterns story arc in the comic books at the moment. Therefore this film is a great jumping on point for new fans who really want to get into the film as well as being something that the Green Lantern faithful will want to see.
Each story is interesting and worth watching. Unlike the Batman film Gotham Knight you will want to keep watching. Smartly, DC have learnt where they went wrong with Gotham Knight and kept with the same art style all the way through the film. Further by maintaining the same style as First Flight, they have managed to create a corps that look like their comic book counterparts.
Hats off must go to the story of Abin Sur (which is loosely based on Geoff Johns’ Secret Origin). The Abin Sur story works so well because again it is the perfect jumping on point for new fans. By providing more information about the Green Lantern of Sector 2814, you will be even more intrigued by the events of the live action film and any other films that are released after it. Further the use of Atrocitus is a master stroke.
One problem with the film is it’s continuity with first Green Lantern animated film, First Flight. Some of the events of First Flight do not make sense with Emerald Knights. Clearly First Flight could have been what the first live film could have been and Emerald Knights is a film that is coming out to push even more people into the Green Lantern mythology, it is just a shame that they do not feel that they connect. Yet this is a little problem in what is a thoroughly enjoyable film.
Overall Green Lantern Emerald Knights is a must see film. It does everything that it should do. It will get new fans excited about the film whilst remaining loyal to the Lantern fan base. It builds the tension and the excitement expertly for the live action film.

Welcome to our newest column ‘Behind the Counter’ in which we take you through the curtain and into the fun, exciting, innovative and ever growing realm of comics.
So to kick off our very first Behind the Counter we have a little feature we’re calling Who is… is to hopefully help expand the comic horizons for new and existing readers.
One the things new and old readers struggle with is that a large number of comic characters have such a rich and extensive continuity that it can be daunting for the first timer. This also applies to the seasoned comic reader. You may know Batman inside and out but would you know where to start if you’ve never read a single X Men, Daredevil or Superman Comic? Hopefully this is where Who is Who will swoop in to help by giving a with brief history of the character(s) and some essential reading to get you started.
Be warned though for as we delve into the history of the characters there will be the inevitable spoilers. So if you don’t want to be spoiled then consider skipping the history section and read the origin and essential reading parts. You can always come back to the history stuff at a later date.
First up as the film adaptation is right around the corner we bring you Green Lantern.

I gotta say the oath is sounding more and more bad ass every time I hear it. Looking at this and the Wondercon footage the marketing guys have wisely focused on given the clips and trailers a more epic vibe to them and it works so much better.

So we have decided to relaunch our ‘Voices of the Syndicate’ column but rather than just me or dave commenting, as we did when we first started this website, we have handed the keys over to the entire GS Team. Each week the guys will be tackling a different question from the world of Geekdom and giving their responses.
If you would like to get in on the fun then please use up the facebook discussion thread if you want to post your questions there or to comment on the answers given in this week’s column. If your question/suggestion is used in an upcoming column you will win a prize.
So without further ado with the summer heavy with comic book film we decided that seemed like the perfect place to start.
If you could watch only one of the comic to film adaptations this year which one would it be and why?
