    GREEN Jack, Black LANTERN

    Ain't It Cool News reports that funnyman Jack Black (SCHOOL OF ROCK) has been signed to play GREEN LANTERN in a Warner Bros. movie of the same name. "Jack Black has closed his deal. He will be playing Green Lantern in a film that has been described as a 'zany comedy version a la THE MASK,'" reports Moriarty, a.k.a Drew McWeeny, the site's west coast reporter. "All rights to the DC comic have been worked out as well, so you can expect to start hearing more about this project in the months ahead."

    IMO, Jack Black is forever funny.

    have to agree, if they wanna make a hero comedy they should just invent a character not use an existing one.

    ... like editman...

    Seriously, I've never considered The Mask as a superhero... while technically, it IS...

    Angry Wtf!!!???

    OH MY GOD!!! I have been dreaming of a Green Lantern movie ever since I was like old enough to look at comic books. As a matter of fact, the first comic book I ever looked at, was indeed a GL comic!!! I have been waiting forever for a Green Lantern animated series, or a full blown huge budget motion picture!!! The GL story could be done on a huge epic scale ala Star Wars...afterall, the GL are essentially cops/peace keepers/JEDI. :-) The potential for a serious live action mega hit is just endless!!! I've always seen a 6 hour mega trilogy in GL's theatrical future...as a precursor to a huge *** JUSTICE LEAGUE movie....though WB (the folks that bring you Batman with nipples and Catwoman the cheesy bondage whore akin to a porn flick)...have came up with Jack Black's Green Lantern movie...

    Someone just freakin shoot me!!! What the hell is DC thinking of??? The new Batman flick and the new Superman movie might make up for this ultra shitty GL flick...but it would be cutting it really close.

    I can't believe they'd go out and kill the GL franchise like that!!! Heck, if they're doing a GL movie...it needs to be about HAL JORDAN or ALAN SCOTT...not a "Guy Gardner" wannabe...like Jack Black would end up being. Besides, I hated GUY GARDNER!!! Damn, this movie is going to make Catwoman look really damn good...and that's saying alot!!!

    As of right now, I hate WB almost as much as I hate Rick Berman and Brannon Braga for killing the Star Trek franchise!!!

    I simply can't understand why they would do this. If they make a comedy it can not possibly gross as much as an action version. Green Lantern has a lot of potential and this seems like a total waste. I am very pissed off about this

    I feel as you all do that this is a bad move.... but.... part of me things that this is just crazy enough to work

    Jack Black has shown that he has potential, and the casual movie-goer has no idea who Green Lantern is. And we've seen that most recent serious-comicbook-movies have not done very well: Daredevil, Hulk, Punisher, Hellboy

    Maybe this is just the ticket.

    Then again... maybe not.

    I cannot imagine Jack Black in this role. He might provide some humorous scenes while experimenting with his powers, but as far as actually using them for anything closely resembling good, I just can't see it.

    anyone but Jack Black!!!

    for the love of god and all that is holy stop this madness before it
    starts!!! what is the WB trying to do?!? they want to ruin this before
    it starts? what is wrong with these people!! catwoman wasn't enough for them to screw up they have to do this now?? this is just wrong on so many levels it is passed the point were its not even remotely funny.

    but take a deep breath Batman Begins still looks good at the moment
    just wait for Batman Begins, yes Batman Begins will fix everything...
