The DC movie universe should already be three years old. We all thought, Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy aside, that Martin Campbell‘s Green Lantern was going to kick things off. It was a no-brainer. Much like Iron Man before him, Green Lantern was a very successful and popular comic character who was fairly well-known to the general public. He also had an everyman origin story which opened up the world to crazy possibilities. Fans surely figured, by 2014, we’d see Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern on screen with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash.
Then the movie opened, and things did not turn out well at all. While some enjoyed the movie, most heralded it as an epic failure on every level. Most importantly, the executives at Warner Bros. pretty much dismissed the film and instead focused on Superman as a new universe kickstarter, leading us to where we are now.
So where does that leave Green Lantern, The DC Comics superhero movie that doesn’t quite fit anywhere? It leaves the movie as the perfect subject of a Screen Junkies Honest Trailer. Check it out below.
Thanks to ScreenJunkies for the Green Lantern Honest Trailer.
The official description:
In brightest day, in blackest night, Green Lantern won’t escape our sight!! You’ve been demanding this one since the very first Honest Trailer – so we figured it was time to shine a (green) light on one of the most disappointing superhero movies ever.
