Green Lantern

***Dave and the Flea are both worried at the prospect of a comedic Fantastic Four. But it gets worse. I love Jack Black and the Green Lanterns are among the only DC characters I care about. But dear heavens... Jack Black as Green Lantern. This is to be a comedy. You know, like "The Mask".

As I understand it, DC Comics tried desperately to dodge this bullet, but ultimately, they donít have the right to veto something if Warner Bros. really wants to make it happen. This is the problem with the way DCís deal with their corporate overlords is structured. Their hands are tied.

All of this may be true. But I blame Jack Black. He does not have to take this role, he does not have to take this money and he does not have to do this to a character so many people love.

When is the release date for the Green Lantern, and heavens name why is Jack Black playing the super hero, he should play one of green Laterns villians. or a sidekick. Find someone better to play Green Lantern
