By DogsOfWar - 7/24/2010


Updates from Poni_Boy on twitter and email. Also, some live blog messages from G4

Geoff Johns just hit the stage to announce the footage!

Footage starts out, a voice talks to us and welcomes us as "Inhabitants of Sector 2814"

Ryan/Hal recites the Oath during the clip! First look at Tomar Re

Reynolds nails three bad guys with a huge green fist

Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Stong, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds hit the stage

Martin Campbell, "The costume is always a work in progress. We have the black and green, and we lost the white gloves. We felt it looked cooler and far more interesting without them. There are certain lines on the costume, and it's more like a skin on GL than a costume. The lines are all lines of musculature, which our designer came up with. It is a work in progress. It will eventually look incredibly cool."

Kilowag, Tomar Re, Boodika, Mogo, The Green Man and Bzzd will be in the movie.



Geoff Johns is telling a story about how they tried to make a Green Lantern 10 years ago, and the first thing the studio exec asked was "Can we make the movie without the ring?" That's when he thought there would never be a Green Lantern film.

3 weeks left to shoot in New Orleans.

Sarsgaard is talking about his character, and how he becomes an expression of what he keeps inside. "He's the kid that licked the battery... or went on the roof during a thunderstorm with a coat hanger."

Geoff Johns can't talk about future DC films...yet

Freaky twins asked Mark Strong if he will 'kick ass' in the film. Creepy

Reynolds: "I saw this guy who is arrogant and cocky in the film who is given this amazing gift, and that becomes humbling for him. I thought that was a great arc for a character in a superhero film."

Ryan Reynolds looks massive! He may be as big as Chris Hemsworth

Johns on possibility of Justice League movie: "Anything is possible, but I think the Green Lantern movie will lead the charge for anything that comes later."

Blake Lively can't wait to be a villain and kick Ryan Reynolds ass in the sequel

Martin Campbell's favorite Lantern is Bzzd, he just had to include him in the film

Reynolds recites The Oath to the crowd (and directly to the little kid that asked him) while brandishing his ring.

Talking about flying, Reynolds says that all the Lanterns have their own way of flying. Reynolds, "We get to really spend up in the air and fly. We can bank and make right turns and do somersaults. The flight part for me has been one of the most fun parts of filling the Green Lantern shoes for me."

Reynolds handed out his ring to a member of the audience (they had paper attached to the bottom of their seat). Reynolds: "This means we're married. But like in Space."

Footage sounds promising!
Curmudgeon - 7/24/2010, 12:43 PM
I read a live blog for the panel. Geoff Johns totally dropped the ball at this perfect chance to announce other DC films. SOO annoyed right now.
CaptainAmerica - 7/24/2010, 12:46 PM
YAWN
StuckInPanels - 7/24/2010, 12:47 PM

Mileena16 - 7/24/2010, 12:48 PM
AWESOMENESS!
AngelAragiel - 7/24/2010, 12:48 PM
Ryan/Hal recites the Oath during the clip! I got to see that.
Flurb - 7/24/2010, 12:49 PM
I'm so excited for this movie! Ryan Reynolds is my hero. haha
UnfriendlySpidey - 7/24/2010, 12:49 PM
killer!!! was following the panel for this on G4tv and Reynolds was wearing the GL ring and actually gave it to a person in the audience, saying Green Lanterns pass their rings down and it was only fitting he passed it on to someone in the audience. What an awesome guy all around. Can't wait for this flick AND Deadpool whenever they get around to it
sweetre15 - 7/24/2010, 12:50 PM
Sounds pretty cool to me
SHAZAM171 - 7/24/2010, 12:51 PM
Footage please. The only way I'm going to get extremely excited. LOL
InTylerWeTrust - 7/24/2010, 12:52 PM
Yeah, everything sounds pretty freaking awesome. I don't mind the lack of white gloves. I'm so excited for GL, it'll be epic.
Set2Fallfirst - 7/24/2010, 12:52 PM
aweesoommmmeee let the complaining from the ppl who need to find something to complain about even though they are doing a great job adapting the moving without killing the dream of a great movie start......NOW
eleven11 - 7/24/2010, 12:54 PM
if reynolds look massive, whoever's playing superman will really have to step up since superman is definitely bigger than GL
Aitrus233 - 7/24/2010, 12:55 PM
Giant green fists? Bzzd? Black and Green uniform? MOGO?!

This is gonna be awesome.

Also considering that seeing Mogo in a story usually requires one to go there (due to his gravitional forces ripping apart Oa), I think we may seen a final battle on Mogo. Perhaps the Corps fight Parallax there.
StrangeCosmic - 7/24/2010, 12:56 PM

lol i know, intruder! but on the blogcast the reporter said they specifically warned people not to and added, "this is really just for you guys" as in the attendees. they would kick you out if they caught you, right? don't think we should expect to see it... though someone ight have figured out a way!
AlternateNo4 - 7/24/2010, 1:08 PM
well ryan was bigger than hemi when they were first cast... so if hemi could gain weight, why couldnt he?

Ah Dammit! Completely missed the damn panel because way too many people were waiting and camping out since last night, I'm a huge Green Lantern fan but I prefer the comfort of my own bed @ home than sleeping outside of the convention center anyday..haha! I had my camera ready to go too ;o( well hopefully some of the other guys who are here were lucky enough to capture some footage and will post it up for us ;o) Marvel panel for Thor & Captain America @ 6:00 PM PST. I have to line up for that now if I want a chance @ getting in...damn these fanatics! *shakes fist in air*
CaptainOtter - 7/24/2010, 1:18 PM
BZZD! Yes, one of my favorite lanterns. such good news.

AlternateNo4 - 7/24/2010, 1:27 PM
@intruder—well okay then i WILL get my hopes up! but remember you promised...
16ddh1 - 7/24/2010, 1:31 PM
footage sounds awesome@!
JoshWilding - 7/24/2010, 1:32 PM
Some really interesting bits of info up there. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing that footage at some point! :) It's a pity that they still dont seem to be all that keen on moving ahead with a JLA movie though...
Denn1s - 7/24/2010, 1:32 PM
I WANNA SEE IT !!!!!! SHOW US THE FOOTAGE WB !!!!
BIGBMH - 7/24/2010, 1:36 PM
Gosh! It would be so awesome to get that ring!
AlternateNo4 - 7/24/2010, 1:43 PM
@bigbmh—not the real ring anyway accoding to the blogcast... he said the one ryan gave away was definitely not the one he saw in the footage. BUT then ryan said "i've lived with this ring for the last six months," so it seemed like a contradiction. only thing i could think of was that maybe the ring in the movie was cg enhanced and so it looked diff. i wonder if the ring "comes alive" or "turns on" when he puts it on?
Angelus - 7/24/2010, 1:51 PM
AWESOME!! I NEED TO SEE FOOTAGE!!!!

BMP!!!
hush - 7/24/2010, 2:07 PM
This will trounce Captain America and Thor
Upupandaway - 7/24/2010, 2:46 PM
@hush- Can't we all just get along? Looking forward to all three.
