I never saw the ring wearing super hero as all that exciting. I think I was finishing high school when there was the big news about gay. Now if Green Lantern had been gay, that might have been interesting. But instead it was some sidekick.
Green Lantern being gay would have given the character something interesting.
In my oldest brother's comic book collection, there were a ton of comic books that were Green Lantern and Green Arrow. And Green Arrow was interesting. His junior partner Speedy was hooked on drugs. Green Arrow was involved with Black Canary. And while all this is going on Green Lantern was just his always dull self.
So we've got a dull character with a magic ring.
And the movie's coming out. And the guy playing the dull character? The annoying and always smirking, balding Ryan Reynolds.
All that is to say, no, I'm not planning on seeing it. But if you do and you love it, let me know. If someone really love it, I'll be willing to give a shot.
