Green Lantern Movie

The news broke last week, but I've been getting more excited about it (in my 30secs of free time per hour) everyday.

Martin Campbell, director of Casino Royale, is pencilled in to direct the Green lantern movie!

The Green Lanterns are an intergalactic police force, who bestow to one being per space sector, a ring and power battery, that allows them to contruct anything they can imagine with a green energy.

Personally, I prefer the Green Lantern corps to Superman, as even though they have similar power levels (faster than a speeding bullet etc.), the Green Lanterns have a more varied weapon, and an easier weakness for villians to exploit: their rings are controlled with will-power. This means that if they lose focus or conciousness, their constructs (including their flight & defense) will fail and they are vunerable.

Should be an awesome film, especially with a proven action director, who can bring character to his heroes, behind it.
