I agree with Guard, Millar does seem even less genuine than even he used too, ever since he got hired. I do however believe he has even more responsibility to begrudge Marvel Studios over DC. You'll find he gives them even less praise.

As for Green Lantern, giant bubbles and big hands...and big springs used to launch tankers into tha air was groovy back in the day. Today it needs to be, for lack of a better word "JJ'd" as in abrams lol. Do to the lantern universe what was done to the cinematically dated and distant Star Trek universe.
What's more about the powers, the way Lantern fights some of his antagonists such as say the finale of the movie is boarder line ang lee hulk vs the absorbing man engaging. It could be so much more but they need better creative management if they are going to succeed.

..otherwise the flash movie will end with him on a cosmic treadmill.
(old school).

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
