New Green Lantern Trailer Fills Me With The Yellow Light of Fear

I like Green Lantern. Yes, I had an opinion when they got rid of Hal Jordan and replaced him with some Gen Y artist. My opinion was I hate you.

And I like Hal Jordan, and oh, here he is.

And I like Ryan Reynolds, who made me laugh in Blade III. And who was good in the not-as-bad-as-you'd-assume Amityville Horror remake.

And I like Blake Lively, who turns in a nuanced, playful performance as Serena every week on Gossip Girl. Oh, I mean she's hot.

I like the Corps. I like the oath. And I know the oath. At least the first stanza. If there's more, okay, I don't know that.

But... did no one question this suit?

The CGI is out of hand here. I can look past the injudicious use of CGI for everything because there are a lot of aliens to represent.

But they're using CGI to create a costume; costumes were, previously, represented on screen by something called "actual costumes."

Okay, I'll still see it. But there's a reason I talk about Captain America and not Green Lantern, and seriously, I like GL.

But my willpower is failing me.

I had hoped there would be some kind of online outcry about this suit that would cause them to stop with this nonsense. I guess there wasn't.

Okay, I am officially starting it then: For the love of Oa, get rid of the flashy light crap on that disco suit.

Piper Laurie and Adam Sandler just both emailed me: "They're all going to laugh at you! They're all going to laugh at you!"

More Geek Stuff: Publicity shot of Tom Hardy as Bane in the Batman movie being shot now (or soon).
