Green Lantern movie Wonder-con footage...

Did anyone get a gander at the exclusive scenes shown to Wonder-Con viewers?

I can't embed it, but if you go here, and click on "Wonder-con Footage," you'll see a four-minute clip from the upcoming Green Lantern movie.

I can't help feeling more and more that the approach to this movie is completely wrong.  It's just too steeped in Chris Nolan Batman-esque tones, complete with Hal Jordan imitating RAWRI'MBATMANVOICE in the last lines of the clip.

I could live with that, though, if Hal Jordan still had white gloves.

But there's one line that I find ridiculous:

Tomar Re is sent to greet Hal Jordan as he arrives on Oa, and suddenly Hal's (ugly, misshapen) mask disappears.  (Apparently Hal has no input into the appearance of his uniform, either.)

Hal looks puzzled, to which Tomar Re explains, "Your mask will appear when protection of your identity is required."

Hollywood-ese translation:

Ryan Reynolds wanted more face time.

The reason why Tobey-Spider-man spent 88% of the time of all 3 of his movies mask-less....

I honestly don't object to face time. I've never been quite sure why it is that Hal and Kyle even bother to WEAR masks anyway, since it is pretty darned obvious who they are. Especially with Kyle answering to his name while in costume.

But anyway...I've seen it and I am enraptured.

LOL. Well, I'm glad you're happy, Sally. Hopefully some of that enthusiasm will wear off on me. :)
