According to many site the Green Lantern movie is to be released on December 17, 2010 - of course before I get all giggly and excited lets remember that anything can happen between now and then and it will take just ONE bad comic book movie to kill every other one in the pipeline. I just hope that they pick some unknowns for the main characters like Hal Jordan although I will agree that Robert Downy Jr as Tony Stark was truly inspired casting. A famous person seems to work best for the villian but for the life of me I can't think of anyone who would be a good Sinestro.
"Also with Green Lantern comes the release of a new animated feature on July 28th. Acclaimed actor Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) fills the lead voice of Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern. Meloni is joined by fellow Emmy Award nominee Victor Garber (Milk, Titanic) as the villainous Sinestro, Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as the voice of Boodikka, and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs) as Kilowog. Produced by animation legend Bruce Timm, Green Lantern: First Flight is helmed by heralded director Lauren Montgomery (Wonder Woman, Superman Doomsday) and scripted by four-time Emmy Award-winning writer Alan Burnett (The Batman). Green Lantern: First Flight finds Hal Jordan recruited to join the Green Lantern Corps and placed under the supervision of respected senior Lantern Sinestro. The earthling soon discovers his mentor is actually the central figure in a secret conspiracy that threatens the philosophies, traditions and hierarchy of the entire Green Lantern Corps. Hal must quickly hone his newfound powers and combat the treasonous Lanterns within the ranks to maintain order in the universe."
