Green Lantern Movie Panel Confirmed for 2010 COMIC CON

<i>Green Lantern</i> Movie Panel Confirmed for 2010 COMIC CON

Though fans knew it to be inevitable, official word has been released that Warner Bros will showcase their superhero film at this year's Comic Con International

The cast and crew for Martin Campbell's Green Lantern movie have been busy filming in New Orleans, Louisiana, for several months. Since production began, we've had our fair share of official, and unofficial, information about the project. Everything from set photos to concept art to detailed scene descriptions have been consistently hitting the net. Just this month we had a look at promotional artwork for the film that was used at the recent Licensing International Expo.

None of these tidbits of information, though, have been as talked about as what Warner Bros has in store for fans at this year's Comic Con. In past years, Comic Con has been known to help make or break a film of Green Lantern's magnitude; to the point that no studio will ignore the impact a showcase of their latest film slate can have. Fans have expected a Green Lantern presentation at this year's Con for some time now, but Warner Bros has only today officially announced that a dedicated panel for the film is on their docket.

DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns will be on hand this year to promote Green Lantern, and even recognized the anticipation he understands that fans feel for these projects, “I always appreciated the fact that an effort was made to show something to the people who really love it.”

With Marvel Studios ready to showcase THOR and Captain America and announce information for The Avengers (as well as their smaller properties) at Comic Con, Warner Bros has to be ready to drawn attention to Green Lantern, which is not as generally recognizable a character. From what I heard several months ago, they will undoubtedly put on a brilliant display. Teaser posters, official production images and film footage are just some of the goodies fans will feast their own on in only a few short weeks. Fans of the Green Lantern mythology will be very happy to see a scene pulled straight from the comics pages; one that involves a certain dying alien bestowing a powerful weapon to his worthy successor.

Warner Bros and Marvel Studios won't be the only companies bring hot properties to the Con, Disney is planning a massive TRON: Legacy panel, while Sony is prepping Green Hornet and Battle: Los Angeles for their official audience debuts.

No matter which films you are most excited to see, you won't want to miss the coverage of this year's Comic Con; which appears to be the most comic book movie heavy in history.

@ GUNSMITH: We all know thats a hokey and a mock up. It's cool if we can see that paticular scene done 100x better in the coming weeks lol!

By the way the Nathan Fillion mock up trailer is ten times better.

Oooo, how I envy you, Americans! Poni, you brought this to us, you'd better have some on-location follow-up news! No, I DEMAND on-location news! LOL!!!

@PieFace: Nice avatar! Gatotkaca, is it?
GUNSMITH - 6/29/2010, 3:19 AM
Orehrepus - 6/29/2010, 9:04 PM
@bropus: Actually, I'm an Indonesian, but I'm not that much into "wayang" (shadow puppet), so I kind of know... a little bit... more or less... :P

Actually, if my guess was right that it was Gatotkaca (that's the name of the character) he's the superhero of the wayang universe. He's kind of like Superman. He can fly, has (and I quote, from the story/narration) "muscles of steel and bones of iron," and he has this super blaster weapon on his chest, not unlike that of Iron Man's unibeam. Well, I may exaggerate a bit on that last piece. LMFAO! But he does have some kind of weapon on his chest.

It's highly appropriate for PieFace to use it as an avatar on this site. XD

Well crap. I wish they would come to the MegaCon in Florida, but I guess it would be to close to closing production. Johns will be there though (I hope) and others for the GL series. I am pretty sure they will have a lot of stuff to promote the movie though.
PieFace - 6/30/2010, 9:24 PM
@Orpheus, Wicked, I'm Indonesian too.. Never crossed my mind that I would find a fellow countrymen in this site.. You got that right, It is Gatotkaca.. Might as well stick to our local superhero.. Although, I'm not quite sure where Gatotkaca really comes from since the Mahabharata is actually a Hindu folklore from India..
ps. The piece on his chest is not a blaster actually, coz some wayang plays portrays him without the armor, but he fought with a mace..
