Studio Admits Green Lantern Trailer Was Bad, Michael Clarke Duncan For Killowog
Warner Bros. first big, non-Batman superhero movie in awhile hits this summer in the form of Green Lantern, though you might not know it, since we havenít seen nearly as much hype around it as weíve gotten from Marvelís big summer offerings. Donít worry itís coming. Itís just not ready.
The problem seems to revolve around the movieís complex 3D effects, and word is they just havenít had enough of it ready to start promoting it heavily. Think about it, even Ryan Reynolds costume is a complex special effect, and odds are thatís in almost every scene. Besides, it seems the studio is keenly aware of just how poorly the first trailer was received. In a recent interview with the LA Times WB head Jeff Robinov flat out admits that the first GL trailer sucked. Before they show you anything else, it makes sense that theyíd want to get it right. Right now the next Green Lantern trailer is slated to play before Thor when it's released in May.
For now it sounds like the Green Lantern team is in the midst of trying to get things right. Theyíre still making this movie, in fact they may still be casting it. Rumor has it that Michael Clarke Duncan is in talks to voice the alien character Killowog. Thatís perfect and if youíre not sure why, then hereís a picture of Killowog:
Latino Review first came up with the Duncan for Killowog rumor. Weíll let you know once heís confirmed to be in the cast.
