Last month, Fast and Furious franchise star Tyrese Gibson hinted that there would be a big announcement regarding Green Lantern at Comic-Con, seemingly indicating that the actor may have been cast in WB’s upcoming reboot. That big announcement was Green Lantern Corps, which will feature not one, but two Green Lanterns. And one of them could indeed be Gibson, as the actor confirms he has met with WB about the movie.

The biggest news coming out coming out of today’s Warner Bros. panel: A confirmation of one of the biggest comic-book movie rumors in recent weeks, that Green Lantern is coming back to the big screen in the near future, and this time with multiple heroes sharing the spotlight. Reports have tied both Chris Pine and Tyrese Gibson to the project, and while neither gentleman was on hand at Hall H, Warners did confirm the movie is in the works, and it has a title: Green Lantern Corps.
I think the intuition/thought process of buying cheap comics is interesting. There's a combination of randomness, curatorial sense and instinct at play. You end up with a group of comics that would ordinarily never be linked together, from different times, artists and publishers, but links and common themes are there and just need to be unearthed. You end up with a vantage point on the artform you would never get otherwise. No scholar would ever link these comics, but the link is there. This is how most readers, especially the uncounted legion of casual fans who aren't part of the Wednesday crowd, encounter comics.I picked up this particular group of comics at a sidewalk sale for a dollar each. They're exactly the type you'd find at a place that doesn't specialize in comics, in this case The Record Exchange. None are rare or valuable. None are celebrated classics of the form. They're probably comics you've seen a many times and thought nothing of, but each tells its own story.They are Green Lantern Corps #223 and #224, Super Soldier #1, The New Teen Titans #9, and Green Lantern1,000,000.
Though writer Joshua Hale Fialkov's blog post announcing he'd no longer be writing DC Comics' Green Lantern Corps and Red Lanterns simply pointed to "editorial decisions about the direction of the book that conflicted with the story I was hired to tell" as the reason for his departure, Bleeding Cool and Comic Book Resources reported today that the specific editorial direction
Mere hours after writer Andy Diggle announced via Twitter that he was ending his run on Action Comics before it began, another DC Comics writer, Joshua Hale Fialkov, posted on his blog that he likewise won't be writing Green Lantern Corps nor Red Lanterns, both of which he was scheduled to take ove
Friday's Justice League panel at San Diego Comic-Con kicked off with moderator John Cunningham, who's DC's VP - Marketing, introducing panelists Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Co-Publisher Jim Lee and writers and artists James Robinson, Nicola Scott, Tony Bedard, Francis Manapul, Brian Buccellato and editor Brian Cunningham. A lively panel with obvious camaraderie, the panelists discussed the history of the
The preview of Green Lantern Corps #1 hit CBR today, and while I'm guessing this is another one of those unintentional missteps, all I'm going to say is that giving the first arc of your superhero comic the same name as one of the most famous pieces of Nazi propaganda is a pretty bold move, and unless you know exactly what you're doing and how to
Becoming a Green Lantern isn't really a choice in DC Comics lore. One day you're crashing planes or whatever, the next you're getting yelled at by Kilowog. The ring chooses you, Poozer! If you want to wield a construct-making ring, but you're a gamer without the power to overcome universe-ending levels of fear (a strong indication that you're sane, by the way), DC Universe Online'
