Raise the Green Lantern

DC released the first real trailer for the Green Lantern cartoon DVD movie First Flight yesterday, and it looks good. I like the character designs and art style, although I wish it had shown more of the outer psace stuff the flick is supposed to mostly consist of, instead of the Abin Sur/getting the ring stuff. One other note: I’ve never really had a lock on the Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in my mind; he’s always seemed too generically heroic for me. But the idea that Hal Jorden is very heroic guy with virtually no imagination at all is really starting to appeal to me. I mean, watch the trailer — he has to hit someone, and he has the power to create anything he can imagine. So what do bring forth? A goddamn folding chair. That’s awesome.
