With each passing day, my excitement and anticipation for the upcoming Green Lantern movie grows. This is both a bad and a good thing, of course. The good is that, from what I continue to see, it looks better and better. The bad is that, from some of my past experiences, I may be setting myself up for a massive fall. I’m a big fan of Green Lantern (Deadpool is my #1, but Hal is easily in my top 3), so I already have a fairly strong desire to see this movie succeed. Today’s bump in my excitement comes from the release of a new trailer for the movie, with more of a focus on Hal as a Green Lantern in training.
To be fair, when I saw the first look at Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, I was…skeptical. With each release of new information about the movie (promo images, concept art, and the first trailer), I became more excited and open to the direction it seemed to be taking. Seeing Sinestro, Kilowog, Tomar-Re, the Guardians, Hal, Hammond, and more really got me pumped.
Check out the trailer and let us know what you think about it, and the movie in general. Are you excited? Are you worried? Are you apathetic?
