Green Lanter

Super Hero Round Up? All the little Superhero movie bits that you should know about, but just don’t make a full post on their own.

After all the rewrites, costume changes and questionable character tweaking, NBC passed on the Wonder Woman dramatic action series pilot. Good decision for NBC, but too bad for Adrianne Palicki, who probably thought she’d landed the greatest gig ever.  You’d think that the problem lied solely with the very David E. Kelley-ness of the show, and not with her performance, right? But NBC chief Robert Greenblatt, says other wise. Greenblatt (haha, he has a funny last name) sat down with TV Guide recently and explained why the network skipped on Diana Prince and her lasso of truthh:

“They did a great pilot and worked really hard on it. And I have huge respect for David E. Kelley. But we looked at the schedule and our needs and where things were falling into place. And it just didn’t seem to fit.”

On what he thought about the costume and fan backlash:

“I was surprised there was such an uproar. But that didn’t have anything to do with whether the show got picked up. I love that it got so much attention. All that engagement from people whether it was positive or negative was good. And she did ultimately have these little hot pants…”

Son of a bitch! Fucker teases about “ little hot pants” we’ll never ever see. Dick!

I was really not excited about this show at all and the collective consensus from, I dunno… everyone, shared in the sentiment. Is there anyone that’s not happy with NBC’s decision. Besides Adrianne Palicki, that is.  What are your thoughts on GreenBlatt’s explanation?

I was really not excited about this show at all and the collective consensus from, I dunno… everyone, shared in the sentiment. Will Wonder Woman ever see the light of day?  Probably not, but some other network could still pick this up like Sy Fy ‘cause they have no standards.

Green Lantern Trailer #2

So this second Green Lantern trailer will be hitting theater screens soon, most likely before Marvel’s US release of Thor (May 6th). I think I liked the first one better. When I compared how the “Oath” sounded in the two trailers, the first just seemed to project it better. I got chills hearing it, this time not so much, although hearing Micheal Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile, Daredevil) as Kilowog made me giggle like a school girl. This trailer looks geared toward a wider audience, the world threat, the love interest, the training period, less humor. Take a look and let NerdBastards know what YOU think.

The Green Lantern is going to be released on June 17, 2011 in both regular format and 3D.


For anyone that cares, Warner Bros. has released some teaser posters for the big screen adaptation of Green Lantern. Not only do these poster give us our  first official look at the four main characters. Which, consist of Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, Mark Strong as Sinestro, Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond, and Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan , but if you combine all 4 posters together they display the Green Lantern’s oath: ” In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night. No Evil Shall Escape My Sight“. So, it’s pretty cool to see the oath incorporated, but aside from the nod to the comic I gotta say these posters are looking a little bland. It’s what I might expect to see in a lame KOOL cigarettes magazine ad. Though, I do get a kick out the fact that both villains are rocking child molester moustaches.

UPDATE: Also below the jump is a video from Comic-Con 2010 where Ryan Reynolds says the Green Lantern Oath to a sweet little kid. When I saw that, it made me nerdgasm.

As most of you know Warner Bros. is currently underway with attempting to repeat their success of The Dark Knight with another DC title character The Green Lantern. With Ryan Reynolds in the lead role and other cast members including Gossibp Girl’s Blake Lively, Mark Strong (Kick-Ass) and Angela Bassett, the casting has been promising.

The film isn’t out until next June- though we have seen leaked set pictures of Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond, a shot of the spaceship linked to Hal Jordan becoming the Green Lantern, as some images of Reynolds in a dot-covered motion-capture suit on to which the green uniform of his character will be digitally mapped. Suffice to say there has been little information. That is, until now., got their grubby little hands on the official plot synopsis of big screen adaptation.

Interestingly, it mentions the villain of the story is Parallax. Which is a parasitic entity that embodies fear, a creature that has caused entire civilizations to destroy themselves out of paranoia.
