I mean, it comes out next year, right? You must be thinking to yourself that surely they’re getting ready to film or have a director or a finished script by now, yeah? Actors lined up? In auditions, at least? Even casting calls?Click here to read the full article.
It’s not often Carol Ferris is the star of an issue of Green Lantern. It’s not often that Hal Jordan spends a lot of time with her. These days he’s off being the great hero that he is and she’s…well, she’s whatever the latest writer wants her to be in that moment. Depending on what fan you talk to, that may be for the best or insanely frustrating. I’m pretty firmly on the latter side, however I want to take a look at the relationship between these two characters and put it under a microscope. How does it hold up compared to other hero/civilian relationships in the DCU? I’ll answer this question and some others that help me decipher these two characters, all while getting the opinions of comic creators to see where they land. Join us as I ramble on about your favorite test pilot and his boss.
I’m going to say it right now, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps should go down as one of the best runs in all of Green Lantern history. Fifty issues filled to the brim with epic space confrontation, dramatic twist and turns, and friendships you never knew you wanted, but can get enough of. So now that it’s been some time since the conclusion, it’s time to countdown the ten best moments from the series. It should go without saying, but there will be spoilers ahead. Read at your own caution, enjoy.
The 10 Biggest Moments from Ron Marz’ Green Lantern Run
From Green Lantern Vol. 3, #48 in January of 1994 all the way to #125 in June of 2000 (with a modicum of breaks along the way), Ron Marz was the Geoff Johns of that era of Green Lantern comics. There were ups, there were downs, there was crazy stuff, but always it was entertaining. Down to Earth more often than not, to where there’d be any sort of big space adventure, that’d be a big deal. I loved that. I admit, I would have never picked up an issue of Green Lantern had I not read in Wizard Magazine that “big stuff” was going on in the title. I picked up #50, backtracked a little from there, and the rest is history.
Let’s go down memory lane a little bit of some of the highlights of Ron Marz’ tenure as the gatekeeper of Green Lantern:

A few years back, rumors swirled that DC was just going to go ahead and do a goddamn Justice League movie. At some point they hired a director, hired all the actors, and spent millions getting it going (mostly due to legal stuff that is incredibly shady but still). But it seemed absurd! It seemed like it was created with the sole purpose of getting the attention of fanboy blogging and entertainment news soundbites. No way was this ever a project that was actually happening, no one was having these meetings, it was all some Bizarro PR campaign to promote Common’s album, who the hell knows. Of course, the project really was happening (until it suddenly wasn’t) and somehow the script really was written (and recently leaked). And believe it or not, it reads exactly as a script produced for a completely fake and completely weird PR campaign would read. I honestly couldn’t even have imagined exactly what that was until, Shazam, I read it. Let’s dig in. Spoilers ahoy.
Our pals over at Collected Editions discovered a gem of a quote from DC Comics’ Co-Publisher Dan Didio about how the “Forever Evil” tie-in stories will be collected. As you know, excluding Earth 2‘s issue, the spotlighted villains during September are Black Hand, Mongul, Sinestro and of course the newly created threat that is Relic. Find out what Didio said and how it relates to the future of our favorite lanterns.
I know. I know. You hate me already, but hear me out. Below you’ll find 5 unquestionably valid reasons why Green Lantern John Stewart should be killed. We’re not going to mention former incoming writer GLC writer Joshua Hale Fialkov’s leave and the rumors surrounding it. I’m just going to “randomly” give you reasons that I truly believe that this character should be killed off.
So the big news is out! Geoff Johns is leaving Green Lantern with issue 20 in May(along with every other lantern creator). Well, with no time to grieve, the members of the Green Lantern Corps Podcast were forced to pick their top 5 choices to replacement the long running writer. Its all wishful thinking.
