If the shit show that was Prometheus didn’t talk you out of believing that the sequel to Blade Runner would be good, take a fat hit of this to your dome. The fucking writer for the bloody diarrhea monster that was Green Lantern has been brought aboard the project.
Abandon hope, all ye.
Okay, okay. They never said there were going to be any dance scenes in the Justice League movie. Instead, it has been a silent hope of mine. What better way to solidify the tension between Wayne and Clark, than by them finally slinging dongs on the dance floor while talking out their differences? It’s a minor loss for the film, but a loss none the less.
‘EARTH 2′ WRITER James Robinson: Alan Scott Won’t Be The Only Gay Character In Earth 2. I’d Hope Not.
Alan Scott is the prominent character that DC is introducing into New 52 continuity as gay. The original Green Lantern! Neat? It all sort of feels like a cop out to me, plastering this announcement everywhere and then finding out its a dude 70% of pop culture doesn’t know. Writer of Earth 2 James Robinson was discussing all of this with The Advocate when he revealed the obvious (?), that Alan Scott won’t be the only gay character.
DC’s “prominent character” that is going to be reintroduced into the New 52 as gay turns out to be Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern.
Listen. Sometimes it gets a smidge difficult to differentiate reality from fantasy. Especially living in the Muiltiverse, where the first logical thing to think whenever anything gets weird is “Well, I’ve slide into an alternate dimension where these Goblin Men with soft serve ice cream coming out of their nipples must be the norm” , right? So I don’t blame Nathan Fillion and Tim Daly for having a bit of difficulty disconnecting from their roles as Green Lantern and Superman.

Check out a preview of the Robot Chicken/Green Lantern collaboration. It doesn’t seem to make much sense, then you watch it and you’re like…oh this is going to be good. Dang good. I mean, a Green Lantern cock ring? Sold.

I should have known that Green Lantern would make enough money to get a sequel. The movie was raw ass. Not offensive, maddening, sickening bullshit like Transformers 3. Rather it was unforgettable. A flaccid romp through a CGI nightmare. Fuck that movie, and fuck that it is getting a sequel.
I saw Green Lantern last night. It’s a bad movie. Like, real bad. I hold the unfortunate culpability of dragging along my girlfriend and another couple to the theater, and costing them hard earned bucks. Despite what you may think, I at even mid-week I still held out hope that this movie would be passable. To the point of inviting other people alone. By Friday afternoon I knew that I was in fact an asshole. By Friday evening after the movie I felt a certain sense of guilty.
This movie fucking stunk. This shit stank with the power of a thousand dog craps baked in the muggy Boston air.
For those of you who intelligently pointed out a while ago that it was going to suck, I tip my cap. Should have listened.
Who am I to get all high and mighty about a comic book movie being fucking dumb! I disagree sir. When Caff-Pow! isn’t excited for a flick, you know it’s bad news. Fuck Green Lantern, man. I’m going to see it because I’m part of the problem, but I ain’t excited. The Onion in this video perfectly captures the ‘uh sure, I’m seeing it. ‘Cause uh stuff.’ vibe surrounding the flick. It’s awesome.
New trailer for Green Lantern up in here! It oscillates between gorgeous visuals, horrible exposition, epic action sequences, and Blake Lively’s black hole of non-acting prowess. Also, the Green Lantern’s oath is fucking awful in the comic books, and only sounds more hokey out loud.
Hit the jump for the trailer.
