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.
