Dave!The first two comic books I ever bought were Green Lantern #121 and The Flash #277. I ended up liking Green Lantern best because his stories were cosmic in scope and seemed more imaginative. Whatever Hal Jordan could dream up, his magical ring could make a reality... what could be cooler than that?

How about a Green Lantern movie?

Last August there was an announcement that a GL movie was going to enter production. I was excited. Now there's news floating around that my hetero-man-crush Ryan Reynolds has beat out Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper for the role. Now I'm estatic. I can only hope that they REMAIN FAITHFUL TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL and come up with a decent story. A Green Lantern film should be EPIC. He should battle bad-ass villains like Sinestro and Star Sapphire... not lame-ass regular-people villains that shouldn't even be a challenge. There should be aliens and space battles. There definitely should be Abin Sur and the Guardians... DON'T FUCK WITH GREEN LANTERN'S ORIGIN, OTHERWISE IT ISN'T GREEN LANTERN!!

The massive box office from the Batman and Iron Man movies should prove that you can remain faithful to the source material and still have a successful film. Hopefully the people behind Green Lantern understand that...

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave dressed as Green Lantern.

In other news... final dates have been set for Davelanta 3 (August 1st) and Daveorado (August 22nd)...

DAVETOON: Davelanta August 1st
The Daveil went down to Georgia...

DAVETOON: Daveorado August 22nd
A run to the Rocky Mountains...

If you haven't already contacted me and would like to meet up with some cool bloggers in Atlanta or Denver, just send me an email at and I'll let you know when we have details!


  1. Dan says:

    That last comment was me by the way, sorry.

  2. Avitable says:

    I think JT would have been a good GL, too. I really would prefer Kyle Rayner over Hal Jordan. Jordan’s boring. Kyle’s constructs would be so much cooler and bring more life to the GL movie, I think.

  3. Sybil Law says:

    A Green Lantern movie really would be cool – only, it does worry me that they’ll screw it up… Gah.
    Wish I was going to be in either of those places to meet up with you!

  4. Tug says:

    Holy cow, how have I not heard of Daveorado? I’d love to go, count me in!

  5. martymankins says:

    And soon after Daveorado will be Dave Lake City 3.

  6. With any luck their PR folks will be searching the ‘net to find posts like these and use it to their advantage when creating a kick-ass movie.

  7. Peter B. says:

    I’m hung up on the Ryan Reynolds choice, mostly because I can only picture “Van Wilder” when I see him, so I will hope for the best.

    But I’m with you on hoping they pull it off. I’ve been rooting for a GL movie worth its snuff since Clinton was in his first term.

    I would have had to claw my eyes out of Justin Timberlake got the role, though. I’d have preferred Jack Black if that was the case.
