Tom Cruise for Hal Jordan in the GLC movie? Chris McQuarrie directing?

158424

Making the rounds in movie news this week is that Chris McQuarrie being courted to direct the “Green Lantern Corps” movie… and Tom Cruise might be on the short list (no pun intended) of actors targeted for playing an older, more experienced Hal Jordan to a younger, new recruit John Stewart.

Maybe 10, 15 years ago would be ideal, but wouldn’t he be a picture perfect Hal Jordan? And if he’s a little nutty… perfect. He can go full-Parallax.

How Do Superheroes & Comic Books Change Our Society

Unfortunately, the society that people live in these days is not always as a positive element. People are constantly surrounded by negative information and violence that they see either on TV or online. It seems that the world is heading in a direction that is not beneficial at all for the future generations. Even cartoons are starting to feature inappropriate images for kids. However, there are still a few factors that could change society and make it a better place.

Superheroes and comic books are two elements that will always be present in the life of people. They have been around for years, and many people all over the world are grateful for that. Even though this might seem like a childish idea to some, superheroes might become the only savior for the following generations. More and more people should be aware of the importance of superheroes and comic books. Some of the advantages that they provide are listed below.

1. They Influence Children

Superheroes should be present in the life of kids ever since they are young. They can teach little children how to support others and develop good morals. Furthermore, kids who identify with superheroes from comic books are encouraged to find solutions and courage to deal with real-life situations. At the same time, superheroes teach kids an important lesson: being different is a good thing. This fact allows kids not to get lost in an imaginary world. Psychologists who did research about this topic informed us that superheroes are in fact like real people, once they take off their costumes. Therefore, they are more like a child-friendly version of a role model.

2. They Raise Awareness

Even though comic books are not taken seriously in some countries, a lot more people need to realize the positive impacts that they can have on our society. These days, comic books are seen as an entertainment factor. However, if you pay attention when reading a comic book, they will realize that they raise awareness on aspects of life that most people would consider irrelevant. They raise awareness of gender stereotyping, the dangers of using nuclear weapons or other natural disasters. Besides that, these days it is easy to make people aware of different aspects with the help of the internet. A YouTube banner creator informs your visitors about your channel. The whole design process is quick, simple to customize and free.

3. They Provide Innovative Education

Even though it was mentioned earlier that comic books and superheroes can have a great impact on the development of small kids, it is good to remember that they also provide innovative education. Not only kids can benefit from reading comic books. They provide real-life lessons for both teenagers and adults. Japan has already introduced comic books in their education system. That’s a normal aspect considering the great deal of motivation and self-help that one can find in such a book. Today’s society could benefit from the help of comic books. Adults and people of all ages could learn the importance of helping other people in need or trying to eliminate negative information from all media.

In conclusion, superheroes and comic books are not only entertainment sources for kids. They have a lot of benefits for our society and future generations.

The Return of Parallax? Bet on It

 

I’m not necessarily a betting man, but if I was… I would bet that one day, somehow some way, Hal Jordan will once again be Parallax. Wait, I don’t mean the space parasite or Living Incarnation of Fear kind (and certainly not the movie kind, either), I mean the Parallax that was actually driven to kill some Green Lanterns (not the Guardians, though… I don’t know why he keeps getting the rap for that… they clearly suicided right in front of him and it’s like two decades later and people still think that he did).

Warriors Bar…and More?

Do you ever wonder if Guy’s Warrior’s bar (probably the Oa one) ever had a casino in it? If it did have one, what would it be like? Would it have slots? Traditional American card games? Would it include alien forms of gambling, or would Guy pretty much want it to be a recreation of what he remembers and probably loved on Earth? Would that even be something the Guardians would condone?
