Green Lantern

Green Lantern Release Date: June 17th, 2011 - Warner Bros.
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan. Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax... he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
Green Lantern seems to be on the tip of a lot of people's tongues. Dwayne Johnson may or may not have hinted at the role, Chadwick Boseman is offhandedly bringing up the character in interviews and now, so is DC Cinematic Universe godfather David S. Goyer.

Hello fellow CBM'ers. As well you know, GUSTO is a huge Green Lantern fan. Usually one of his smart ass post is followed up by how great GL is. Well I am here to let you know that he is wrong.
Green Lantern was mostly negatively received among critics and fans alike. So, does the character of Hal Jordan - or any of the other human Lantens - deserve to be brought back to the big screen or are they destined for little more than a supporting role in Justice League? Here's my take.
You read the headline right, poozers! Kilowog has been portrayed in media a certain amount of times, but in film, he wasn't treated as the character we see in television in comics. Could the pig-faced Green Lantern hold a film as the main protagonist?

Ever since the 2011 super-bomb arrived at cinemas, fans and audiences alike have either given up on the series altogether or pondered the question of, “Reboot vs. Sequel.” I take a look at why the latter of which is the best option, as well as how to go about it.
Hal Jordan has been the main star of Green Lantern Franchise for 42 years. There may be a few people who disagree with this article due to there attachment to a GL character but my goal is to inform why Hal Jordan is the definitive Green Lantern.
