Because 3D CGI has returned as a subject of concern on LIH there was interest that one of the most CGI necessary movies since “Alice in Wonderland” be discussed. If you like Comic book cinema, Blockbuster films, and enormous tent poll franchises in the making then you’ll probably want to consider this Bruce Campbell directed film. Regarding the Thursday, June 16th, 2011 opening date, most American audiences are familiar with the film’s star Ryan Reynolds, yet most are not familiar with the character Green Lantern.

Differently than some other comic book cinema articles written for this site, the X-Men franchise definitely have a feature film history most can remember. Because of this choosing the best vantage point to discuss the upcoming film can be difficult to define regarding what’s at stake with this movie and franchise. Also what perspective best describes the challenges defined by this film? Should a studio’s perspective of the film or the fan or specifically the fan boy or girl’s perspective be used? Since this site attempts to empower consumers a perspective that uses a combination of both perspectives will probably be best.
