Mattel has released information about its new line of Green Lantern action figures tied in to the upcoming movie, and though many of them are familiar (though bizarre) faces—such as Medphyll, Nautkeiloi and Dex-Starr—one of them is quite UNfamiliar. And for now, it doesn't even HAVE a face!
What kind of superhero movie can we expect Green Lantern to be? Is it going to rank up there with The Dark Knight? Or will it turn out to be a turkey like Elektra? According to screenwriter Greg Berlanti, there's a reason it'll rank up there with one of the best.

You can explain most comic book superheroes in one sentence. Alien from Krypton is indestructible under Earth's sun. Billionaire builds super gadgets, costumes and vehicles to beat up criminals.

Maybe that's why screenwriter Greg Berlanti is describing it more like Star Wars than Superman.

Abin Sur needs some medical attention, stat! You can direct the EMTs to the San Diego Comic-Con, where Warner Bros is displaying the rather ghastly-looking body of the Green Lantern who passed his ring on to Hal Jordon.
