We on the MTV Splash Page crew weren't alone refreshing our browsers last night when the "Green Lantern" trailer appeared for the world to see. The launch created a tidal wave of reactions all over the place, but the creators in the Twitter Report feed were as vocal as anyone.
Thus far, the movie has the approval of Kevin Smith, Neil Kleid and Rob Liefeld. Geoff Johns hopes you caught a specific Easter egg that was thrown in, and Paul Azaceta and Brian Denham have some reservations. Check out who shares your opinions below, and if you don't have any yet, it's probably high time that you viewed the new clips from Martin Campbell's film for yourself.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for November 17, 2010.
"Green Lantern" pt. 1: @GeoffJohns0 Hoping people would catch that! :) RT @wombat1974 @GeoffJohns0 nice Sapphire logo on Carol's helmet there, Mr Johns :)
-Geoff Johns, Writer ("Blackest Night," "The Flash")
"Green Lantern" pt. 2: @loveandcapes I don't mind Carol being a pilot. Just not sure about her directly competing with Hal.
-Thomas Zahler, Writer/Artist ("Love and Capes")
"Green Lantern" pt. 3: @neilkleid Wife liked the GREEN LANTERN trailer. That usually means the comic book movie's good. And, you know, that we'll get a babysitter to see it
-Neil Kleid, Writer ("Ursa Minors," "Action, Ohio")
"Green Lantern" pt. 4: @ThatKevinSmith Via @mswift44 "what do you think of the Green Lantern trailer?" Kilowog, Tomar Re, Sinestro... Looks like Martin Campbell done good. I'm in.
-Kevin Smith, Writer ("Batman: The Widening Gyre," "Green Arrow")
"Green Lantern" pt. 5: @Michael_Cho I keep thinking the Green Lantern movie mask makes Ryan Reynolds look like Ben Stiller. LOL
-Michael Cho, Artist ("X-Men: First Class," "The Age of the Sentry")
"Green Lantern" pt. 6: @BrianDenham Dear Green Lantern trailer, you SO could have been the Right Stuff meets Star Wars, but you look like Hot Shots! meets Stealth. :(
-Brian Denham, Artist ("Iron Man: Hypervelocity," "Man-Thing")
"Green Lantern" pt. 7: @OKBJGM no one saw the betrayal coming? really? THE DUDE'S NAME IS "SINESTRO" FOR GOD'S SAKE!
-Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Writer ("Annihilation: Super-Skrull," "The Middleman")
"Green Lantern" pt. 8: @robertliefeld Just watched Green Lantern trailer. Looks GREAT! This movie will do very, very well. OA looks awesome. What're the gripes about??
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist ("X-Force," "Youngblood")
"Green Lantern" pt. 9: @HackinTimSeeley Confused by Green Lantern trailer hate. Have the haters never read Green Lantern comic? It's about Ryan Reynolds firing green CGI effects.
-Tim Seeley, Writer/Artist ("Hack/Slash," "Ant Man and The Wasp")
"Green Lantern" pt. 10: @paulazaceta @PaoloMRivera I agree. Green Lantern should look like Tron but instead it looks like My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
-Paul Azaceta, Artist ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "Punisher Noir")
Deep Thought for the Day:
@MarkWaid I stopped using the "40 yr olds who live in their mother's basement" slam after I realized it also applies to Batman.
-Mark Waid, Writer ("Kingdom Come," "Irredeemable")
