Green Lantern eager to become a trilogy (rumor)

This is by no means a reliable report, as the person who said it was hitting on someone, but Bleeding Cool has heard that Green Lantern 2 is scheduled to begin filming before the first movie hits theaters. Warner Bros. is very confident in the potential of the DC superhero flick that it will use the current New Orleans shooting location as Coast City (a fictional city) in the sequel, which should hit theaters sometime in 2012. A Flash movie is in the works as well.

GREEN LANTERN to have a CGI costume

Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Batman's costumes may have looked computer generated, but Green Lantern is about to take it to the next level. Ryan Reynolds will wear only a motion capture suit while filming Martin Cambell's version of the Green Lantern, reports /Film.

My problem, unlike heavy CGI characters of the past, like Spider-Man and Iron Man, Green Lantern shows his face. So we're going to have a computer generated body pasted on a real head--it could look bad, very bad. However, it should be noted that Green Lantern is a different kind of superhero. Much like Venom (Spider-Man villian), he can change his suit on the fly. From what I understand, it scans onto his body very quickly. The design is still a secret, but supposedly his suit should glow with energy. John Gholson from Cinematical thinks his chest logo may even hover out from his suit. Interesting, to be sure.

Ryan Reynolds wins Green Lantern role

According to Reuters, after a lengthy audition process, Warner Bros. finally decided that Ryan Reynolds is the best man to play the DC superhero Green Lantern. Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper, and Jared Leto were all in competition for the role. Martin Campbell is set to direct. You may remember him from such films as GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Vertical Limit, and the two Zorro movies.

If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC. He recently starred in a comic-book movie, 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” in which he played Deadpool, also known as the Merc with a Mouth. The character is being developed for a spin-off in which Reynolds will star. He also played Marvel’s vampire hunter Hannibal King in “Blade: Trinity.”

I’m not so sure any one actor should be playing two comic book roles. What do you think?
