While there are definitely different levels of excitement, I am officially excited about the four major comic book adaptations this summer: Green Lantern, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and X-Men: First Class.
Right now I keep waffling between Captain America and Green Lantern. Both of those films seem to be tapping into my inner-child and I think I know why. I get a serious Star Wars vibe from Green Lantern and a Raiders of the Ark vibe from Captain America. Not that I expect—or need—these films to live up to those golden apples from my childhood, but these comic book adaptations seem to be bringing the a similar imagination and excitement.
I continue to grow more excited for Green Lantern with every new clip or poster. I think the character designs for the famous GL supporting cast have been spot-on. The filmmakers have perfectly adapted Sinestro, Tomar Re and Kilowog. Check out the new character posters released by Warner Bros. this week.
Green Lantern lands into theaters on June 17th.
