Green Lantern

The emerald knight’s outing was an excitement-free origin story

In a superhero summer that felt like an almighty ad for next year’s The Avengers, Green Lantern was Warner’s great green hope. Rather than dazzling, though, the emerald knight’s outing was an excitement-free origin story, top-heavy with uneven “WTF?” mythology and a Mars Attacks! reject for a villain. Ryan Reynolds’ skintight CGI cossie and killer smirk weren’t super enough to compete. With Wonder Woman’s aborted TV series, Batman’s imminent end and Flash plans on hold, DC is badly trailing in the comic-book wars. Can Man Of Steel rescue them?
