View Full Version : What Do You NOT Want To See In A GL Movie?

I'm a huge GL fan. As i know a lot of you are, but none of us can say they havent taken a few... Shall we say, wrong turns with the mythology over the years...
My question is, what parts of Lantern lore do you NOT want to see up there on the big screen?

My choices are-

Predator-
I really hate Predator! He/she's like the most 90's villain ever created... A fact made all the more frustrating by the fact the character was created in the 80's!

Hal's romance with Arisia-
Yeah, i know, we dont really like to talk about it, i know we all fall back on the old "due to the elongated orbit around its two suns, thirteen years on Graxos IV are like two-hundred and forty on Earth" excuse but, guys... Let's face it here, Hal was in a serious, sexual relationship with what amounted to a child.
The fact that presumably somebody sat down at DC one evening and thought this was an interesting way to take the characters is worrying enough but could you imagine if Green Lantern 4 dealt with this storyline?
Heads would roll!

The Spectre-
GL should be a hard Sci-Fi movie... Keep the meataphysical and supernatural stuff out of it. I loved his roll in Lantern history in the books but The Spectre character is the perfect example of something that can work in a comic book but not in a movie...

Hank Henshaw/Cyborg Superman-
If they do decide to turn Hal bad and destroy Coast City, just let it be Mongul that does it, eh?
Cyborg Superman's just gonna confuse the General audience.
I would hate to be watching the (no doubt stunning) devastation of Coast City in a theatre and then be pulled outa the momnet by some slack-Jawed yokel saying "Wait... Superman blew up Lanterns hometown? Dude, that's AWESOME!" *sniffs glue and falls back to sleep*

What about you?

I don't want to see Hal Jordan becoming Parallax.

I wouldn't mind Cyborg Superman showing up, but perhaps an altered version of the character. Refer to him as Hank Henshaw, and remove the overt Superman elements.

But then he wouldnt be Cyborg Superman... As for the Parallax issue, i think it'll be fine if they keep it a self-contained film and really stress the fact that Hal is possessed... It could be what Spider-Man 3 should've been. Where Hal has to face his own fears to conquer the enemy within sorta thing...
Having said that, if they dont go down the Parallax route, i can see why and i wont be that bothered.

I don't want to see a whole lot of other lanterns until the very end. This needs to be a movie about Earth's Green Lantern at first, not some human becoming a interstellar cop. Save that for the end of the movie as a segway into a sequel.

A stand-alone Spectre-Corrigan movie is cool by me.

Hal becoming a villain and Kyle taking over the franchise. :down

But I liked Wesley's idea of a movie focusing on Hal fighting Parallax possesion ala Spider-Man 3. :yay:

Here's another: Drunken/captive Hal. :down :down

Well, yeah but you could say that about anything.. THere's just not enough to that character to be the sole villain.
Unless they made him intelligent, which would be ridiculous...

greenlantern248
04-13-2009, 08:01 PM
I'm not here to start another Hal vs Kyle debate, but why no Kyle? He is just as important part to the GL mythology as John or Guy.

Anyways I agree with others keep The Specter to his own movie
I also don't think I would really want to see Evil Star show up, I don't really like that villian.

The Guard
04-13-2009, 09:01 PM
I don't think The Spectre will be anywhere near this franchise. I definitely don't want to see Hal becoming Parallax on the scale he did in the comics, but I wouldn't mind seeing him succumb to a lust for power, grief, etc. That story revealed some powerful ideas about great power and the burdens of it, and it could be used to fantastic effect. I say have Hal lose it after Sinestro destroys Coast City (or appears to) in an act of revenge, and very much go down the Parallax trail. Have Kyle Rayner be the Lantern who is tasked to help stop him, with Hal ultimately turning away from the dark side, but going off into space to "find himself" at the end of the film.

That-Guy
04-24-2009, 11:08 AM
Yeah, definitely no Spectre in this franchise. But as its own movie, I think The Spectre could be AWESOME. It wouldn't be hard to create the look of the character either... just give him long pants instead of a speedo and you're good to go.

AnorexicBatman
04-24-2009, 12:10 PM
A director who chooses to ignore an important character and not include him in his films just because 2 of his previous incarnations were lighthearted and camp*

(Yes you Chris Nolan... You and your anti-robin ness... Ok, it's your movie but stop treating Batman's partner like a diseased rat... )

A movie that causes fans to go, "OMG!!! GL IS TEH REALZ!!!" and start spouting of names of hundreds of important characters whom they DO NOT want to see in the new films because according to them those characters aren't realistic...

(Again.. the batfans... )

Things I never want to see in a GL movie:

G'Nort

Guy Gardner's ridiculously huge boots that could double as floatation devices

Kyle Raynor's original costume with the frog mask

Tomar Re (without a dramatic redesign). I know he's important, but if they include him, I certainly hope he doesn't look like the illegitimate son of a chicken and a goldfish.

Wesley Dodds
04-28-2009, 01:02 PM
I agree about G'Nort. Not because i dont like him (I do) but because it'd just be one Lantern too many. We can all comfortably go with him, y'know?

I love Guys boots. Their very cool and i'd love to see him stomping around in them ("All the better fer' kickin' yer ass with, loser!")

Tomar Re would also be fantastic! Think about it, think about what director's like Jackson and Del Toro have done with much weirder character designs. Sci-Fi movies shouldnt shy away from odd looking designs like TR's, they should embrace them.

No spandex and Earthly looking fabrics please. At least no spandex looking costume.

i don't mind if the spandex looks good. it just needs textures.

yea with the right look/text material that was used for FF films could be turned into something good.

Octoberist
05-12-2009, 04:00 PM
the one thing that I don't want is armor. and if they do go with armor, don't make it too obvious. i think spandex could work because it's very alien if you think about it; it doesn't look like anything that our (Earths') miltary would wear.

Wesley Dodds
05-12-2009, 04:02 PM
I completely agree, octoberist.

Thats actually a tiny problem i have with the otherwise Excellent looking animated movie.

Wesley Dodds
05-12-2009, 04:14 PM
Course they are. Hal's costume, one of the greatest costumes ever, has been traded in for souped up, slightly iron man-like battle wear.

Dont even get me started on the lack of white gloves...:cwink:

protocida
05-12-2009, 04:39 PM
Still the perfect suit for a movie, tough.

Wesley Dodds
05-12-2009, 04:55 PM
Yeah, we've all seen the 90 second, virtually dialogue free trailer. It's great but theres nothing at all in it that tells me they had to change the costume or that the original one wouldn'tve worked just as well.

What I don't get, is when people say "We can't use spandex, spandex looks gay! Let's go for something much more straight.... let's dress him up in leather and PVC!"

If anything, leather/PVC gear has more overtly fetishistic connotations than spandex. Spandex is worn by professional athletes at the Olympics and other sporting events.

Wesley Dodds
07-07-2009, 06:08 PM
I think it's some sort of unfortunate leftover from the dark days of the nineties... You cover everything in black leather and chains and spikes and for some reason that makes a character "More mature"... I don't get it either.

Dear, WB

Hello. I'm writing on the teensy-tiny chance that, as recent reports have sugested, you're trawling messageboards to gauge fan-reaction to the "final three choices" of Cooper/Reynolds/Timberlake.
I'm a Lantern fan. A hardcore. There are very few things that could stop me seeing this movie.
Casting Justin "Sexyback" Timberlake as Hal Jordan is one of them. I mean it. That's how big a deal breaker this is. I'm not alone either, this is worrying news. VERY worrying. I havent heard a casting suggestion this bad since P. Diddy put himself up for Bond... Except this is worse because according to you, Timberlake playing Hal might actually happen.
Please... If you even remotely care what Green Lantern fans think (and apparently you do) cast Cooper or Reynolds. Both of whom are comparatively fine considering the circumstances... Or better yet, Why don't you call Nathan Fillion? Think about it.

Yours sincerely,

Wesley Dodds.

Have two different movie posters, each with half of the oath on it. Perfect!

And since it seems like Sinestro's going to be the big bad for the second film (not the first), the third film could be about the Sinestro Corps War and use the two halves of the Sinestro Corp Oath as the tagline. Genius

I haven't read it. But Legion's the important villain. And two villains that have nothing to do with each other will just lead down the infamous "supervillain team-ups" we all hate and despise. See Spider-Man 3 for more info.

i don't want any band/rap either. NOt that I'm against them because I love music in general but it can date the movie if it's not done right. If they did an old school Dr. Dre for example, Im fine; Soldja Boi, I'm not.

07-16-2009, 01:21 AM
I'm cool with Hal being cocky and occasionally cracking a joke, but I don't want to see them make him a walking one-liner just because Reynolds is in the movie. Nothing against him; it's just that he's been funny in a lot of movies and I don't want to see them turn what should be a serious movie into something silly.

I don't really want to see Tomar Re unless they change his look a bit so that he doesn't look like the lovechild of a chicken and The Savage Dragon.

If Guy Gardner shows up, I don't want him to wear those gigantic puffy Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey boots that were part of his costume in the 90's. I also don't want him to have that stupid bowl cut hair. I know I'm nitpicking here...

I don't really want the constructs to look like actual objects, but more as ambiguous shapes that serve a purpose. Not sure how to do this exactly... I guess I just don't really want giant green fists or hammers.

I don't want a Superman cameo. At all.

Plus, I don't want the film to become the center of contraversy for Superman fans since they can only use one actor for the role. The fans of whoever they DON'T use will be up in arms over the movie. Leave that crap to the next Superman film and leave it the hell out of GL.

It doesn't have to be about an actor at all. All they'd have to do is something like they did with Metropolis in Batman Forever.

I agree that it's pointless, and doesn't really matter, but I couldn't care either way if a mention was made.

The moment I think of is when Mikaela is driving the tow truck with Bumblebee hooked up to it in reverse while he's shooting Brawl and pushing cars out of the way. The music was very out of place and unecessary, especially with some pretty good clips from the score preceding it.

Even if this is a MASSIVE success, we'll only get 4 or 5 films max. That said, I'd like for the stories to focus around what makes Green Lantern unique; the corps, outerspace travel etc. I don't want to see him fighting villains that would work in the context of other DC characters. I only want to see characters/ villains that pertain to the Guardians, and threats on a galactic level.


If there was going to be 90 films, I'd say deviating from that would be okay, but too much deviation undermines the concept.

I think the endgame here would be to have it turn into a franchise like Star Wars (which has 6 films under it's belt) or Star Trek (which has 11 films). If it is a "MASSIVE" success, as you suppose there should be no reason why this shouldn't happen (baring some copyright issue, which is doubtful). The ultimate success for the Green Lantern would be for hit to end up like the James Bond franchise with a library of 22 films (soon to be 23).

Hoping for 12 movies is just unrealistic. James Bond seems to be the exception rather than the rule. To my knowledge the comic book property with the most films (over two franchises) is Batman, and even he's only managed 6 - half as many as your aspiration - in 20 years.

Exactly. I'd like to think I'll care about the Green Lantern in 12 films, but I'm not 7; I'm 25. I would be about 65 by Green Lantern 12.

Considering no character has ever had a great trilogy (Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and The X-Men have had high quality dulogies but never had a great 3rd film) I think hoping for the quality to continue past the 3rd film, into more is unrealistic.

I wouldnt mind Hal as Parallax as long as it only lasts for one movie and it's treated more like the symbiote from Spider-Man.

"The heroes battle with his darker self" sorta thing. That would be why he retires, in fact. When he beats Parallax at the end of GL 3, he conquers his own demons once and for all and tells Ganthet to give his ring to someone else. "Someone who needs it".

I know mine won't happen at all, considering the casting, but I really don't like Hal Jordan as Green Lantern--I honestly wonder if he wasn't the first "modern" GL if he would have actually been used at all. He's very bland, has no real personality, his best moments have been when he was a political punching bag for Green Arrow...his only real great moments have been when he was Parallax--like what Wesley mentioned, if written right he could be the Darth Vader of the GL franchise.

The problem with the "hardcore purists" who hate Hal Jordan is, there's just no way to make them happy. If Hal is portrayed in fearless, cocky, carefree Silver Age style, he's a bland, obnoxious Mary-Sue. If writers try and add more nuance to him, make him have more doubts or anger issues, then he's an emo whiner. They complain when he plays too much of a central, pivotal role in Green Lantern, or now Blackest Night, as if the main character being of crucial importance to a story is somehow an unconventional narrative ploy. Someone actually said "He's like the Norman Osborn of DC, being shoved down our throat everywhere", when at that point he was literally appearing in only 1 book a month. He gets singled out as "the boring guy", when he acts exactly like a whole other bunch of superheroes who somehow have way more fanboy cred.

I may be making a sweeping generalisation here, and if I am I apologise, but it would seem that the big, unforgivable flaw of Hal Jordan in the eyes of these people, the flaw that informs everything else and will always work against him no matter how he is written.... is that he's not Kyle Rayner.

You hit the nail right on the head.

I do have to say that, while I don't understand the arguments against Hal, I do see it with Barry Allen (though I've accepted his character). Wally as The Flash has been beloved by many, so I can see why people are very protective of that character.

When people bring up Kyle as the Green Lantern, my problem is this: He came in to be the 'new modern' Green Lantern. He's not a bad character but he came in a bad situation where's the only Green Lantern out there and the Corps was gone. Because of that, it takes away a lot from the mythos when he was the MAIN Green Lantern.

Maybe if they brought the Corps back, along with Sinestro, and kept Kyle, it COULD work but I can't shake the feeling that Kyle was a little lightweight. To me, he never achieved the success of Wally West.

I have nothing against Kyle Rayner. Though I like Hal more, I think Kyle too is a great character. But like you say, though the strength of the character rose above it, his conception was an act of 90s gimmickry, the kind of destructive revisionist piffle that has made comic creators try their best to sweep the whole decade under the rug. Here's the thing, though. I hear a lot about how Kyle is being buried, how he's being sabotaged. I don't see that. I see him as an equal among peers. But that's just it. For years, Kyle fans were told over and over that Kyle was the last Green Lantern, the torchbearer, the one shining light in the universe. The whole GL mythos was destroyed just to make him more important. So it's kinda understandable that making him share the spotlight seems like character assassination to some.

As for Barry Allen, I have nothing against him either. He has his own niche as a character - being the perennial nice guy, that most good of all good guys. But I think that's a different case than Hal Jordan. Hal Jordan lost his GL mantle for about a decade, and even in those lost years - be it as Parallax or The Spectre - he was a constant presence in comics. Barry Allen was dead - definitively dead - for over 20 years. To a whole generation of fans, he was "The Flash who died", more a figure in Wally West's origin story than a hero in his own right. So to these people, me included, bringing Barry back as The Flash was like bringing Uncle Ben back to life, and having him take over as Spider-Man. But I've enjoyed his portrayal since his return, and his friendship with Hal. So no complaints from me yet.

I read Rebirth and hated it--thought the retcon with Parallax was very cheap. I'm currently reading all the Blackest Night stuff and now planning on getting the rest of the GL trades, and going to try very hard to read with a more open mind.

The problem with the "hardcore purists" who hate Hal Jordan is, there's just no way to make them happy.

I would KILL for a more nuanced take on the character. Now that I think about it, New Frontier was pretty close in doing that, adding the traumas of seeing his father die in a failed stunt and having to kill a child soldier during the Korean War.

As for him being the Norman Osborn of the DCU--probably closer to the case now, since Blackest Night is so prominant right now, but I'd say he's more the Wolverine or Spider-Man of the DCU: not as much as Norman, but man he does pop up a lot.

When people bring up Kyle as the Green Lantern, my problem is this: He came in to be the 'new modern' Green Lantern.

Maybe if they brought the Corps back, along with Sinestro, and kept Kyle, it COULD work but I can't shake the feeling that Kyle was a little lightweight. To me, he never achieved the success of Wally West.

I think part of it is that there was a lot of stuff of Hal being the "greatest" Green Lantern when Kyle not only kept a semi-life together and fought with the Justice League on Earth, but was able to be the sole Green Lantern of the universe.

The thing that I loved about the character is that during that time (Blue Beetle might fit this more today) he was the Peter Parker of the DCU--the everyman with a good heart that rose to the challenge and became a hero.

As for what they could do--isn't that what they're doing now? I know he appeared with the rest of the Earth lanterns in Blackest Night.

I read Rebirth and hated it--thought the retcon with Parallax was very cheap. I'm currently reading all the Blackest Night stuff and now planning on getting the rest of the GL trades, and going to try very hard to read with a more open mind.

I would KILL for a more nuanced take on the character. Now that I think about it, New Frontier was pretty close in doing that, adding the traumas of seeing his father die in a failed stunt and having to kill a child soldier during the Korean War.

See, I think this is where you not reading comes in.

We're buds JRK (nice to see you back on the Hype, BTW - planning an RPG comeback?), so I know from our conversations that you refused to read any of GL Volume 4 out of principle, being so angry over the nature of Hal's resurrection. But in Volume 4, much character exploration is done revolving around his relationship with his father, and the impact his death had on Hal and his family.

Regardless what people may think of JOhns, he's the dude who brought Green Lantern into the spotlight, almost to an A list level, with his current run. Samething with The Flash and Superman.

I dont want any radical character changes like they did with Boodika in FF.

It worked in FF but if they did it for the proper flick, it'd piss me off...

Octoberist

I was confused about that.

After First Flight, I did some research on Boodika and she wasn't like that. It reminded me of how they had that 'twist villain' in the first Mission Impossible with Tom Cruise. I was like "Huh? really..that's THE MAIN BAD GUY?"

Wasn't there some indication from Lively recently that she wasn't going to dye her hair for Ferris?

I think she has, but not dark enough... The hair colour she has now feels like a weak compromise.
As you said, a wig would be fine too, just not blonde... I mean, can you imagine if thay did that with Lois Lane or mary Jane?

Webhead2006
01-23-2010, 02:26 PM
yea hopefully she will dye her hair or just get a very good wig job. i dont really see the harm if she just did a good professional temp dye job. She probably wont have to much time in the film i would figure.

After seeing Avatar in 3D.....it would be a mistake for WB's and Campbell to not release the GL movie in 3D.

Imagine how awesome it would be to see the GL universe and the constructs from the ring in 3D?

After Avatar, I think most producers better think twice about making their action film in 3D.

I thought the 3D was phenomenal in Avatar.

They don't necessarily have to film the GL in 3D....but they convert it to a 3D format in post correct?

Seeing GL in 3D with the sci fi elements, space, and especially with the ring constructs would be amazing I would think.

It will generate more excitement and interest in the film as well.

No. Due to the competition. If they don't make their film 3D, they might loose a lot of customers. If a producer is thinking not to make their film 3D, they better think twice.

it would be cool to have gl in 3d well just some key scenes and not the whole film. But as we know they have a set budget they want to stick with for gl and i doubt they will do 3d. But that could change once filming gets underway/ends.

The GL film demands to be seen in that format IMO.

I wouldn't want to see that.

I'd prefer Kyle being recruited much like the Comics, but by Hal, in order to face the Sinestro Corps or any other threat.

hell no! you gotta have Ganthet saying "You'll have to do." that's part of Kyle's origin. Plus if this hive mind rumor for the Guardians is true, then it'd be better since Ganthet is the last Guardian by the time he picks Kyle

I see it as less of a redneck thing and more of a Qui-Gon Jinn thing. Which is appropriate enough, if Sinestro is to be a mentor to Hal Jordan.


Although to be perfectly precise, Sinestro's hair in the concept art is NOT a mullet. Long hair and mullet are not synonymous.

Reynolds to be really jokey and sarcastic, the way he is most in most of his movies.
