Jack Black is Green Lantern. Let the Black/Green Jokes begin.
— Posted by John Campea
Now, they don’t list a source for this currently, but here, aintitcool.com is saying that Jack Black is slated to be the Green Lantern. Warner Bros. is controlling how this one works despite DC Comics really trying to keep Green Lantern as their own little puppy.
According to the article, Warner Bros. is forming this movie as, and I quote: “zany comedy version a la The Mask”. Where they are getting that quote from, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll pull out the “grain-of-salt-o-meter” on this one. Personally, I like my comic book movies more on the dark and twisty side rather than the bubble gum side. Maybe they meant The Mask as in the one with Cher! That’d be fun! “Our superhero hero is one mean mother! Despite having 84 chins! Oh yes, and no one likes him! Except for one blind girl!” — Hmmm..Okay maybe not.
Either way, I’ll have to wait until Mr. Trailer comes out to make a call on this one.
