James Newton Howard To Compose Green Lantern?

 

Finally, a name has been mentioned in the quest for a composer. IMDB has listed James Newton Howard as the composer for Green Lantern. This news should be taken with a huge grain of salt, primarily due to the nature of the IMDB listings, that they are user-submitted, and some rather false listings have appeared in the past for other films in development. No official studio statement has been made yet, as all has been quiet on the Warner Brothers front as WB and DC Entertainment prepare for next months San Diego Comic Con where they have promised that Green Lantern will "steal the show".

Recently a synopsis for Green Lantern was reportedly released online, few fans believed it to be true due to the mention of the fear-entity Parallax's inclusion. However, the good folks at ComicBookMovie.com have learned that this is indeed the legitimate official synopsis for the Green Lantern Movie.

My Green Lantern Movie Poster Concept

 

I've been working on this for some time now. As a graphic designer by trade, I thought I'd put together a GL movie poster for giggles. I was drawn primarily to the most recent DC Entertainment films, Superman Returns, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. I employed their minimalist approach, using the main character in a way that personifies him and/or his abilities. I chose to put Hal in space, floating above Earth as a bright beacon, almost as if he's defending the planet from an imminent threat.

Hal's Ring and Carol's Hair! First On-Set Pictures

 

The first set pictures have been captured for day 1 of Green Lantern filming, and they do not disappoint. While not showing off the costume or anything fantastic, we do catch a slight glimpse of Hal wearing the ring, and supposedly a from-the-back shot of Blake Lively (Carol Ferris) with dark hair.

Carol's hair color had been a concern among some comic fans. For 50 years Carol Ferris had been depicted with brunette (bordering on black) hair, Blake Lively, the actress cast as Carol is a blond, as well as the actress cast to play a young Carol. So the release of these images has satisfied quite a few comic fans who were concerned about this minor cosmetic question.
