#SDCC: Warner Bros.: ‘Green Lantern’, ‘Sucker Punch’, and ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’
Complete with some idiot in the audience with a vuvuzela, Warner Bros. showcased three upcoming new films in this Hall H presentation.
Green Lantern— Ryan Reynolds (Hal Jordan/Green Lantern), Blake Lively (Carol
Ferris), Peter Sarsgaard (Dr. Hector Hammond), Mark Strong (Sinestro), director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, The Mask of Zorro) screenwriter Gerg Berlanti, and Geoff Johns (DC Chief Creative Officer and Green Lantern comic writer) all took a break from filming to show up and talk about the film, on a panel moderated by Geoff Boucher of the LA Times. A preview was shown, with Reynolds reciting the oath and the audience going nuts over it.
Reynolds was wearing a ring of his own, which he presented to an audience member. When asked about if it’s tough being married to a Marvel character (have they forgotten about Hannibal King and Deadpool? Maybe he converted…) he replied that “we probably have more comic books lying around then other married couples … although that might not be true for this crowd.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Not much here this time, just Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and some new footage. The audience was screaming for the footage, but left disappointed.
Sucker Punch — Zack Snyder returned to Comic-Con with his first non-adapted project, in a film that seems to be part Inception, part Tank Girl (moderator Boucher prefers “Alice in Wonderland meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest“).
He also brought a lot of the kick-ass actresses from the film, Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino, Jena Malone,
and Jamie Chung.
Kevin Kelly, liveblogging at G4 said of the shown footage: “Wow,
this movie looks like a fanboy’s wet dream: robots, giant mech suits
(that look very Big Daddy-ish), dragons, biplanes, samurai swords, hot
girls in sexy outfits …. But
it’s still hard to tell what it’s really about. A young girl gets
checked into a mental institute when she’s young … and enters some
sort of fantasy world.”
As soon as video leaks out, we’ll have it for you here on ComicMix.
