Green Lantern Will Be More Iron Man Than Dark Knight
After the success of The Dark Knight, most superhero franchises are out to duplicate Batman’s box office by getting grittier and darker. But not everyone. We caught up with producer Donald De Line while out promoting his new movie I Love You, Man, and he says they’re planning to make Green Lantern something more in the mold of Iron Man.
"I'd say it's more akin to Iron Man, where there's definitely serious stakes in the movie, but there's definitely a sense of humor throughout," De Line explained. He also pulled out the old "it's all about the character" line in predicting all the different crap they may put Hal Jordan through in the movies. "I think it's all about the character and what the theme is. You can do dark, you can go more comedic, and I think [the audience will] stay with you.'
There’s more than one way to fight crime and Iron Man did it with a lighter and more humorous tone than Nolan’s brooding, thoughtful, meditation on the nature of man. Like Iron Man, it sounds like Green Lantern will just be out to have some fun. Green Lantern needs wacky robotic pals! Hey if you’re going to have a magic ring, why not have a little fun with it? Stripper pole in the Lantern lair anyone?
