There is a God, and he is good!
Now, aside from my ridiculous fanboy freak out here, let’s get to the serious business of how awesome this is. For the past few months, we’ve all been wondering who would play Hal Jordan. Gil reported with glee when Bradley Cooper was placed in the running, and recently we’ve heard myths of Justin Timberlake up for the role. But at the end of the day, who should come out victorious as the Emerald Champion? None other than everyone’s favorite Ryan Reynolds.
So what do we have right now? In the director’s chair, we have Martin Campbell, who directed the smash hit of a reboot, Casino Royale. In the writer’s corner, we have Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green, and Greg Berlanti, who have all worked on superhero properties in the past (such as Smallville and Heroes). And, of course, Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern. Sure, we have yet to cast other key roles like Sinestro or even Kilowog, but this is a great way to start.
So what are we talking about here? Probably something like this:
Finally, you know that when the writer of Green Lantern is tweeting about how happy he is with this decision, we’re in for a super treat.
This is quite possibly the article with the least amount of intelligent substance or discussion, but forgive me. I am easily excited and just had to share my overall excitement for this news.
