Parallax, Hector and Kilowog…Oh My!

Comicbookmovie.com has leaked some spoilers  for Green Lantern and while they sound cool, they leave me scratching my head…Darn lice. To summarize:

Krona becomes the first “host” to Parallax, by way of the Yellow Power Battery. This takes place as a prologue of the film.

– Parallax/Krona attacks Abin Sur’s ship, which causes him to crash land on Earth and die.

– While performing an autopsy on the corpse of Abin Sur, Hector Hammond becomes infected by a fragment of Parallax which causes him to gain exponential telepathic and telekinetic powers.

– Parallax fights Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris on Earth. The fight is unevenly matched until other members of the Green Lantern Corps arrive.

What do you think? Are you excited to see Parallax in all his yellow glory or are they jumping the shark a bit by introducing such an epic bad guy in the beginning of the franchise? Don’t let what happened to Doomsday happen to Parallax.

Also, are fanboys going to be treated to Blake Lively in her Star Sapphire get up from the get go? That last tidbit makes it sound like that might be the case.

Lastly, Green Lantern Corps? Prepare yourself for some KILOWOG!

    It’s interesting that they are throwing some GLC into the FIRST movie! I would have liked to see a more Matrix like approach with the Corps. The first movie could basically stand alone, but be a direct lead in to the first sequel which is essentially the first in a two-part movie. Green Lantern 2 and 2 would be a huge epic story that involves GL and the Corps, and then end 3 with the promise of more stories/films but possibly with a new primary on Earth, like John Stewart or (to be more controversial) Guy Gardner. But hopefully if they use Guy, then he won’t look like this: http://www.comicvine.com/guy-gardner/29-1791/all-images/108-218955/111/105-1174568/

    My biggest complaint with the Kilowog picture is that his costume resembles the comic. Why the hell does Ryan Reynolds’ costume look like glowing muscles?! Biggest fail this movie has had to date.

    I’m super excited for this movie, but the fact that they’re throwing so many hard hitters at us at once worries me a bit. I see where you’re going Monkey, and to an extent I agree, building up for a three parter is great if done properly (Lord of the Rings, Original Star Wars) but it can also be a huge disaster. By the time we got X-Men 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and Spiderman 3 all fans received was an overblown mess. But here’s hoping!

    As for the costumes, I’m happier with Green Lantern’s than I am with Thor’s, but I’m not wild about either. I’m trying to hold off judgement until the actual movie comes out. Who knows, maybe we’ll be blown away.

      “Original Star Wars”

      That made me laugh. It’s like the others don’t even register with you. I don’t want to bog down your post with something like Star Wars, since it’s not related to GL, but I could talk (debate) about Star Wars just as long as I could talk about comics.
