Surely people realise that the amazing Youtube Green Lantern trailer starring Nathan Fillion IS thefilm the fans want to see?

It was so evocative of the Silver Age hero that it can only have been sent as a message by The Guardians. Sign him up before we are forced to endure a kiddie movie version about the squirrel GL, who's name, thank God, escapes me...

Green Lantern is the most under rated DC Comics character and without doubt has saved other characters from imminent doom time and time again.

In terms of casting, I do like the idea of Chris Pine (and I really hope they change their mind about him). Did you see him in Star Trek? He has all the qualities and more to play Hal Jordan to a T. All this 'Nathan Fillion IS. THE. BEST. ACTOR. EVER.' crap is really doing my head in.

I've only seen the dude perform once and that was during his stint on Lost a few years back and even then I didnt think much of him. I have yet to see Serenity fully and that's only cos I need to be in the right frame of mind for it. (flame all you want I dont care).

Green Lantern needs an actor who can hold his own, and for now, for me, that actor is Chris Pine.

I seen the GL trailer on MSN the other week and I actually thought it was official but you guys would of reported it. That's when I knew it was Fan oriented........you know what though it was acutally a decent trailer. I know all the Nathan Fillion stuff is a bit tiresome but I liked the guy in Firefly/Serenity and Slither, he has a good tounge in cheek manner. BUT maybe all the fan hysteria for him is doing more harm than good now.

But hey I say give him a shot and I'm sure the Fanboy masses will turn up in droves and also quell the "BEST. ACTOR. EVER" tag

Does anyone know which film features at the end of the video?

That superhero remark between Fillion and unknown actor (apologies for my ignorance on this one)?

Regarding Nathan Fallon. Anyone who has seen 'Castle' will know he can be as crap as the next man.

Well the one DC hero i'd most like to see a film of is probably the one most likely not to. Hawkgirl. That said, I'd only want to see it if it's Shayera Hol - the one with actual wings and not one of the wannabes with strap-ons. not least of which because the non-removable wings kinda makes for interestingness regarding that she's amongst the scant few superheroes who literally cannot have a secret identity. Then theres the whole major bitch-slap by her own people tricking her into conning the earth into helping them build a big bomb by telling HER its a force field to protect the planet. there's a lot going on there.

but it'll never happen cause everyone prefers Wonder Woman or Black Canary. I can think of a few prominent reasons why.

Green Lantern. To most likely superhero that will cause the comic-movie burst. Just can't make it work.

Yeah, because Superman was universally lauded and spawned a massive hit franchise...

If they do make the film of the Green Lantern, it'll have to be Hal Jordan cause this will be an origin film & it will be our first intrduction to the Corp

but who will put on the ring? I say Nathan Fillion, you don't belive me. check out the fan made trailer on Youtube - runs for 2min 38 secs. Then try tell me he is not perfect for the role!

Warners need to both take a good look at what Marvel are doing at the moment, and pull their blinking fingers out, and simply get this movie made! GL is probably DC's hottest character at the moment aswell as one of comics in general, thanks to his long history, recent top-notch rebirth and the upcoming 'Blackest Night' event. So there is really no better time than to introduce Hal and the GL universe to the wider non-comic reading world (just like X-Men was back in 2000) and give us GL fans the live action adventure we've been waiting for!
Then they should pull their fingers out again and do something with Superman.
Martin Campbell top choice for director aswell!

In a brightest day we will see a director as creative as Campbell to helm GL with a cast that is assembled based on being the character more than how bankable they are (Superman Returns and Iron Man are great examples here). In a darkest night the movie would end up with a so and so director, poor script and poorer visual effects (both Hulk movies and third X-Men are good examples).

I think it should be approached the same way Batman was with Nolan. Deep characterization, a lot of action with powerful action sequences, and a mighty vision of using visual effects. I imagine it like Gladiator with a power ring!

Fingers crossed.
