Okay, I just watched the Green Lantern trailer, and I can’t even begin to express how very excited I am. Of course I think that Ryan Reynolds is sex on legs—what can I say, I’m a clichéd gay guy—but what’s really making me happy is that there’s a movie about the Green Lantern in the first place. He was always my favorite member of the League of Justice, always to my mind the truest ideal of a super hero, always left everybody else in the dust, and it was all for one very good reason:

He knew how to accessorize.

I mean, come on. Batman? A walking Project Runway disaster—talk about overdoing it with the styling. Superman? No decoration at all, not even a bracelet or a mask; he might as well have been a lesbian farmer in Omaha.

But the Green Lantern . . . he had taste. My idol knew how to do so much with so little.

So I’m really psyched for summer 2011.

    Always had a thing for Ryan Reynolds, when the trailer started off with him in his tighty whities, I was sold. Thanks for sharing…I can’t wait for 2011.

    Be that as it may, he still doesn’t hold a candle to Diana when it comes to accessorizing. I mean, invisible plane, bracelets, lasso, AND a tiara? Everybody else can just go home.

    Well said, Jeffrey.

    A truly caring and compassionate person would include a link to said trailer. Oops. Wrong blog.

    What about Iron Man? It’s shiny, it’s red, and if you’re having a fat day, nobody can tell.

    You’re forgetting that our society is in the grips of sportswear fever. The simple fact that the Green Lantern is rich, goes for immaculate tailoring and simple, sexy cars isn’t enough to make up for the fact that he doesn’t have the Batmobile… Plus, I’d still rather take off a mask, thereby partially disrobing Christian Bale, Ryan Reynolds scorching hotness notwithstanding.
