    In brightest day, in darkest night! Green Lantern has a director!

    http://blog.wired.com/underwire/2009...-royale-d.html

    Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in talks with Warner Bros. to make a Green Lantern film, according to Variety.

    The negotiations could help catapult Green Lantern to the front of the long line of DC Comics properties waiting for screen time, according to the trade publication:

    The emergence of Campbell, who also helmed two Zorro films and the 007 film GoldenEye, puts Green Lantern at the top of DC properties being set for movie treatment by WB. While the studio is hoping director Chris Nolan will follow its 2008 smash The Dark Knight with another Batfilm, DC projects such as Superman and Justice League were expected to happen quickly, but have stalled.

    The original Green Lantern, created in 1940 by writer Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell, appeared in All-American Comics. Since becoming the property of DC, the Green Lantern mythology has grown to encompass an intergalactic force known as the Green Lantern Corps, whose members wear power rings that give them incredible abilities.

    I'm curious as who will play the Green Lantern? I hope it is chosen wisely.

    I am sure that they will find someone appropriate for the part. Martin Campbell did Casino Royale and we all remember the rant about chosing Daniel Craig to be the new Bond and we all know how successfull that choise was in the end. I dont know if Campbell had anything to do with this choise or whether it was entirely Barbara Brocolli's choise.

    But no matter what its a good thing that he is the director and that makes me happy since he directed two first comers as Bond and did it with success (Brosnan and Craig).

    great, I'm glad to see it finally moving along. I'm hoping the movie will revolve around Hal Jordan but have cameos from everybody. Have a Green lanter CORP movie and not just a GL movie. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Kilawog on the big screen. I'm very interested to see how their ring projections look on screen. And I know he has nothing to do with the Green Lantern Corp, but an Allen Scott cameo would be fucking sweet.

    I think that would just screw up the world it set up. Different costume, different ring, in other words, unnecessary. A minor character named Scott Alan would be just fine.

    Kyle and Alan are friends. Just having them having a phone conversation would be fine with me. I would geek just hearing his voice on the other line. But I'm weird like that. And he would never make it into a GL movie in a million years. But BZZD. Oh god that would be great. 1 of my favorite green lanterns. Sucked he died.

    That's certainly a question as with this oncoming series and eventual Flash series. With "GL", you'd have to think that the Corps is a definite because there's no way Hal just finds the ring and knows what it does. That's alien technology, brother. I've never been keen on Guy or John, but Kyle's cool. But I'm not real sure if they'd want to try putting Hal out and bringing Kyle, John, or Guy in anyway.

    With the Flash, I think Wally would be there. My layout would be movie 1- just Barry with Wally as an adoring fan; movie 2- Wally gains powers and Barry dies heroically at the end, Wally takes on the mantle; movie 3- Wally is the full time Flash, deals with the death of Barry, and tries to find himself as the Scarlet Speedster. But, what do I know?

    gotta through Jay Garret in there! even out of costume it would be cool. Movies need to be like comics, you can have other characters in there with small roles. They don't have to be in the movie for 45 minutes taking up a bunch of the plot. And I wasn't big on Guy Gardner either until I started reading Green Lantern Corp, then I became a fan. The guy is funny.

    Here's a better prediction for the flash movies:

    Movie 1: just Barry with Wally as an adoring fan

    Movie 2: never happens because sales of the first tank after it is deemed as bad as the Daredevil movie

    DTV sequel: none of the same actors, better plot than the first, but shoddy directing and special effects, Sci-Fi premier

    if a shitty director gets ahold of it then thats exactly what would happen. I think Michael Rosenbaum should play wally West, he voiced him in the JL cartoon and I think would do just as good in a live action flick.

    Daredevil got a spin off and Fantastic Four got a sequel. Doesn't really matter if it sucks as long as the money comes in. And just curious, what's you problem with Flash and the rest of the DCU?

    No I like the Flash (from the Wally days) but I dont think he has the mystique or powers to garner the attention of the nation. Just thinking the reality of a fight scene involving him looks lame in my head...speed lines, still face, moving whirl feet...

    As for the rest of DC I'm a big batman fan...he's my fav character from any comic (right behind spidey) I don't like superman, but I guess that's just because with all his powers he still seems to get his ass kicked on a "local" level...I mean Silver Surfer is probably comparable to him and that guy fights universe battles.

    I like Lobo from the 90s, I was always a Swamp Thing fan (I even liked that show back in the day) but I wasnt a big fan of the other popular DC guys though I never really read any Green Lantern so there I have no comment.
