Superhero Saves Summer

Published by at 3:51 PM under Comm 208

After drudging through several Batman, Spider Man, Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man sagas these past few years, finally one of my childhood heroes is coming to the big screen. Set for release June 17th 2011,  DC’s Green Lantern will hit the theaters with a bang.

The story is of test pilot Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds, who encounters a spaceship with a dying alien inside. The alien, who is part of an interplanetary police force,  gives Jordan a ring that can create out of light anything the mind can dream.

Unlike Batman and the other aforementioned heroes Green Lantern protects mankind against aliens, as well as crazed humans. Thus making him a hero for everyone. Additionally, his carefree nature makes him more appealing than the arrogant Tony Stark or aloof Bruce Wayne. Besides, who needs a cape when you have this kind of “bling” on your finger?

    I hope it lives up to the hype. What do you think of the way movies are promoted in the media? Where do you find articles on the subject?
