Green Lantern Blu Ray

Green Lantern
Blu-ray Combo | Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Martin Campbell
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins, and Angela Bassett
Warner Bros Home Video
Release date: October 14, 2011

In the interest of full disclosure, let the record show the following: I am a HUGE fan of not only the Green Lantern mythology, but particularly of Hal Jordan. There is something about his character that has stuck with me through the years, and after it was announced, you couldn’t get me to shut up about Green Lantern. Every time new casting announcements were made, or new footage was released, I would be glued to my iPhone/laptop. This was my most hotly anticipated film of the year by far, and while it may not have been all that it could have been, I really liked Green Lantern.

Sinestro Scissors

Popular Adult Swim stop-motion comedy Robot Chicken will be doing a very special episode dedicated to the comic book characters of DC Comics, and they’ve released a brand new clip from the special entitled “Give It Up, Sinestro” which you can watch here below.

In this clip, we see an altercation between The Green Lantern Hal Jordan and his ultimate rival Sinestro. In the battle, Sinestro goes a bit too far and cuts off the hands of protector of space sector 2814. Handless, Jordan returns to the guardian planet where he is granted a new ring, and I gotta say, it’s not the kind of ring I was expecting.

Geeks of Doom vs. New York Comic Con 2011

New York Comic-Con 2011 saw the premiere of the first episode of the all-new Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Geeks of Doom was there to watch it. The show will launch on November 11th on Cartoon Network with the one-hour episode that was shown. The animated series will then take a bit of a break before returning to Cartoon Network in the spring as part of the DC Nation block of programming.

The series is produced by animation legend Bruce Timm, but according to Timm, is not a part of the unofficial “Timm-verse” which includes shows such as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, and Justice League. During the panel, Timm remarked that some fans had attempted to link the universes together, but he wasn’t really buying it.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series

Saturday at New York Comic-Con 2011 saw the first public screening of the first episode of the new Green Lantern: The Animated Series. We will have a full run down of the first episode later, but first we will show you the first scene, which DC/Warner Bros has released to the public.

Watch the opening scene here below.

This is just a taste of the series, but I can tell you that the rest of the episode followed in both art style and in the brutality of the action.

DC Relaunch: New DC Comics (Week Four)

relaunch banner

As most of you may know by now, DC Comics is relaunching their entire line of comic books this Fall alongside a day and date digital comics initiative. What you might not know, however, is that it all started three weeks ago with the releases of the last issue of DC’s summer event Flashpoint, and the beginning of the new universe with Justice League #1.

This Wednesday is the third big week of releases and I’m picking up a lot of these books, and there are still a lot of books to look forward to in these upcoming weeks, as well as plenty that you and I will probably want to stay away from for varying reasons. So, in the order of kindness and assignments from my editor, I will be breaking down each title with their creators, what they’re about, and what you can expect from each of the new books. And, guess what? I’m not in love with a lot of the decisions that they’ve made, so this should be fun!

As most of you may know by now, DC Comics is relaunching their entire line of comics this Fall alongside a day and date digital comics initiative. What you might not know, however, is that it all started two weeks ago with the releases of the last issue of DC’s summer event Flashpoint, and the beginning of the new universe with Justice League #1.

This Wednesday is the second big week of releases. I’m picking up a lot of these books, and there are still a lot of books to look forward to in these upcoming weeks, as well as plenty that you and I will probably want to stay away from for varying reasons. So, in the order of kindness and assignments from my editor, I will be breaking down each title with their creators, what they’re about, and what you can expect from each of the new books. And, guess what? I’m not in love with a lot of the decisions that they’ve made, so this should be fun!

Every Tuesday through the end of September, I will be writing another installment so you know when you can get yourself to the store, or to your mobile app, and purchase your new #1s from DC Comics! Also, it’s worth noting, dear reader, that since you’re coming to the game a little late, you can’t be guaranteed an issue at the comic book store, so call ahead to see if they have it. Or if you go the store and they don’t have any copies left of these DC books, you could always buy an indie comic like 27 The Second Set, Baltimore: The Curse Bells, Pigs, and Moon Girl, which all come out this week, coincidentally. There’s more to comics than just superheroes from DC and Marvel, you know?

But that’s probably why you’re here, and now that I’ve gotten the indie comics alternative plug out of the way, let’s talk about the universe that I’d rather live in, the DC Universe!

Geek Discussion: Will Michael Shannon’s General Zod Have A CGI Suit In ‘Man Of Steel’?

Superman

Some snapshots from the set of Zack Snyder‘s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, have found their way to the ‘net, and one of the images has folks talking about a potential decision that could have fans quite angry.

The images come from the Kent farmhouse set, where young Superman (Henry Cavill) was raised by Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner). In one image in particular it appears that the villain, General Zod (Michael Shannon, or his stunt double), is visiting the Kent house, and it looks like he’s wearing some sort of performance capture suit, leading many to wonder if his suit will be added digitally later. This has been done once before, when it was announced that Ryan Reynolds’ superhero suit would be completely CGI in Green Lantern, which was, well…frowned upon by many.

Continue on below now to check out the image for yourself and share your thoughts on what might be going on, as well as your feeling if it is indeed another CGI suit–in-the–making.

Warner Brothers Still Plans To Make More ‘Green Lantern’ Movies Despite Poor Box Office Numbers

The Movie God   |  @   |

Nothing is officially greenlit yet, but sources are saying that Warner Brothers is still planning to continue on with their Green Lantern franchise even though the movie hasn’t quite lived up to the massive amounts of money put into making and marketing it.

The DC Comics superhero flick, which stars Ryan Reynolds in the lead, cost WB around $200 million to make, and so far has only made $118 million worldwide in two weeks of release. Adding salt to the wound, the price tag doesn’t even include said marketing fees, which are reportedly some of the highest ever paid to promote a movie.
