Comic no longer attached to comic-book movie


Thanks to you guys, the fans, we’ll never have to see Jack Black getting about in a green one-piece garment taking on super-villains.

According to IESB, Jack Black was asked to star in the film version of DC Comics’ “The Green Lantern”, but because of the counterattack online about Black starring as the pea green gladiator, the Warner Bros project has been shelved – at least the version Black was going to headline.

Each Green Lantern (and there’s been quite a few) possesses a “power ring” that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were the creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.

Warner Bros were prepared to make the film version of “Green Lantern” more of a comedy, than an adventure film, to suit Black. Thankfully, that idea seems to have been killed.
