On Friday we got our first look at the rumored title logo (along with the costume concept art) for the upcoming Marvel Comics film Thor and, not to be outdone, the official logo artwork and tag line for the DC Comics film Green Lantern has been released. According to a new teaser poster for the film, due out in Summer 2011, Anyone can be Chosen to join the Green Lantern Corps. And this is what the Green Lantern movie logo will look like:
More than a year away from the release of Green Lantern, Warner Bros. has unveiled an official logo and first promotional art for the highly anticipated movie. The images, along with the slogan “Anyone Can Be Chosen,” apparently accompanied a press release issued Friday by Warner Bros. Consumer Products announcing “a landmark year ahead for DC Comics and master toy licensee Mattel,” and hyping the “incredibly wide merchandise appeal” of Green Lantern. The promo art is obviously geared toward courting new licensees for the June 2011 film … Directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Angela Bassett and Tim Robbins. The movie opens on June 17, 2011.
Those of you familiar with the Green Lantern character know that this “new” logo isn’t anything all that different from the older, traditional Green Lantern logo. The fact that this logo is the one that has been chosen for the film is significant only because of the excitement about the film … which is still over a year away from being released. I am SO loving that we are getting such early looks at promo materials for next year’s big Summer films … in addition to the Green Lantern goodies, I’m also very geeked about the Thor stuff (HERE and HERE) and the Captain America: The First Avenger stuff (HERE) that we’ve already seen. 2011 is going to be a big year for Superhero movies … I can’t wait to see which one will come out on top! Which of the big Superhero films are YOU most looking forward to seeing?
