For those interested in anything you can get your hands on about Warner Bros.’ upcoming comic book movie Green Lantern, you’re in for a little treat as the studio has just launched the official website which gives us a new look at Green Lantern‘s official logo.
It’s still early yet on the Green Lantern front (the film doesn’t open until next June) and so the website doesn’t have much of anything on it (at least in terms of the plot, etc.). However, it does provide a fresh look at the Green Lantern movie logo, an important aspect of any superhero movie.
Green Lantern fans can rest assured that the famous logo hasn’t been changed a great deal (it’s not one of those that presents much of a problem translating from comic page to screen). And we do get to see it in animated form with the striking green color glinting in the light in front of some mysterious background smoke.
Take a look at a screenshot of the logo below (click the logo to visit the official site):
Green Lantern is definitely a lesser-known character in the superhero canon as far as mainstream audience awareness goes. Will that hurt the film’s potential at the box office? Or will this be another Iron Man – i.e., where audiences embrace a character they hadn’t really seen before the movie?
I’m inclined to think the latter because of the uniqueness of the character, the big marketing push that WB will inevitably give Green Lanern (the studio is already planning a sequel) and, of course, the star power of Ryan Reynolds in the titular role.
Green Lantern has loads of potential on pretty much all fronts, from the stars and the director, Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), to the villain (Hector Hammond) and the uniquely fantastical premise. Here’s hoping all the elements come together to make for one of the better comic book movies.
Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong and Tim Robbins. It hits theaters on June 17th, 2011.
