Over the last week, Warner has been slowly releasing new Green Lantern posters. In addition to character-specific ones that feature Hal, Sinestro, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re; they’ve also released an awesome theater banner (above) that shows off a bunch of the alien Lanterns as well as a new poster (below) with some of the key Lanterns from the movie.
Personally, I think this is a great idea to show that they aren’t afraid to show off just how true they’re staying to the fantastical nature of the comic. Green Lantern has always been a strong science fiction-based comic filled with bizarre-looking members of the Green Lantern Corps, and trying to go for a more “realistic” take on the material (like the Nolan Batmans) just wouldn’t be right.
Hopefully Green Lantern, Thor, and next year’s Avengers with the Skrulls is a sign of things to come with comic movies. Even The Amazing Spider-Man has the Lizard as a villain. These upcoming comic book movies should hopefully show Hollywood that you don’t have to alter the material to make it a hit. Just take the comic and put it on the screen, yellow spandex and all.
