No Evil Shall Escape My... Huh?

A post by ocvictor discussing the Green Lantern mythos (among others), reminded me that I meant to talk about the trailer for the upcoming GL movie.



Everything looks great. Ryan Reynolds even looks like Hal Jordan. But then he says,

The one thing a Green Lantern's supposed to be is fearless.
That isn't me.


Wait. What?

No! No! NO! <Smacks back of right hand into palm of left hand with each "no"> The ring chose Hal because Hal WAS absolutely fearless*. Now I am in dread. Of course this was one of the points Victor was making on the divergence of story as it ages and spreads to other media. Sigh.

* And because he was in the neighborhood and Guy Gardner wasn't. Much like Slayers, Green Lanterns are chosen from a pool of potentials, who become Slayers/Lanterns as needed (or as plot dictates). It occurs to me that Faith and Guy Gardner would get along famously. They could compare notes about the lame straight arrows they're supposed to understudy for.
