Marvel Toons! GREEN LANTERN! More!

Newsbits from the weekend

By Rob M. Worley     October 19, 2008

Here's a smattering of stories from the weekend scan of the internet:

Review: Green Lantern Script

io9.com reviews the much-discussed 'Green Lantern' screenplay. They score it a B- and provide these insights:

Pretty solid, good introduction to the GL universe. Relies a bit much on the "hero's journey" cliches, especially all the stuff where Hal keeps trying to reject his destiny. Needs some serious de-cluttering and a stronger female lead. But yeah, not bad at all.

Marvel Toons Previewed

Over at Marvel Animation Age, they've captured a number of screen shots from the 'Incredible Hulk' DVD which is frontloaded with trailers from upcoming Marvel animation releases: including new footage from 'Iron Man: Armored Adventures' and 'Hulk Vs. Thor', not to mention artwork from the squishy 'Superhero Squad' cartoon and the upcoming anime imports.

Review: Incredible Hulk on DVD

World's Finest DVD Report has another review of 'The Incredible Hulk' on DVD.

'The Incredible Hulk' is a great movie, easily equal to 'Iron Man', and it definitely holds up on DVD. Universal Home Entertainment has really done the movie justice, and if you want just the movie, than the one-disc regular release is fine. But, if you want some great extras, then you should pick up the three-disc DVD release or the Blu-ray.

Should be Kyle, there's too  much history with Hal so it's bound to be messed up.

Have to disagree. Hal is the more interesting character, has the bigger following, the more interesting storylines, more history is a plus not a minus, and is the most legendary. Even more than Alan Scott.  But yeah, the script overview I read sounded like a bit much for one film. But  I think they can pull it off as long as they don't shoot for a 90min. flick

Definitely getting the 3 disc set of the Hulk. How can you not and still call yourself a fan.

You can't, Wise.

And I agree about Hal, but I'm not sure this movie will go over as well as the recent movies.  I hate to be negative, but most people don't know anything about GL.

<P itxtvisited="1">almost, You have a point but a lot of people didn't know much about IronMan either. This is new territory in that it is one of the most sci/fi laden superhero characters out there so I think that can attract an even wider audience asking for more sci/fi. The fantasy aspect is huge so we never know how people will react to that but I think it'll be well received. I'm a big fan so I'm really optimistic, hopefully that'll cancel out your pessimism and more :)</P>

Good point and sorry for the negativity.  I was a huge Iron Man fan so I was cheering for it, so I know how you feel.

Let's hope it goes over well.

Green Lantern will own son!  Book it. 

60% of the time I'm right every time

Pointless to review Marvel stuff.  I will watch anything from them.  I am glad Comics are popular now, I can come out of the shadows.  Anything comics related in toons or movies are going to be better than normal fare.

Still want Marvel to get serious and make a Marvel Civil War mini series...  Make it a cartoon, but don't treat it like a cartoon .  Make it edgey and throw it on HBO for a 10 hour block or something...
