The Avengers, Green Lantern and Batman Oh my!

The Avengers, Green Lantern and Batman Oh my!
By Graham Malin

Friday is now officially going to be known as, Superhero Fridays, because it seems like everyone is releasing news about all the superhero films in the works. Since so many are coming out, I have decided to combine a few into one post since some are just pictures and quotes.

Let’s start with Natalie Portman and the rumors about her being in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers. Portman has released a statement explaining her involvement with the Marvel universe and what’s in store for her character.

I’m not in The Avengers, but I’m signed up for the next two (Thor) sequels if they are made. I think these inter-related Marvel movies are great fun. The Avengers will be like Ocean’s Eleven with the superhero all-stars!

Well there you have it folks, rumor squashed, thanks to they guys over at Today Online.

Next up, Warner Bros. just released three new photos from their upcoming film with Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern.

These pictures I must say look pretty amazing even if Hal Jordan looks like a green terminator in one of them. Enjoy!

And finally onto the last bit of superhero news for at least the next couple of hours, Christopher Nolan‘s, The Dark Knight Rises, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s character, John Blake.

At first no one knew who this character was and figured Nolan made the character up as oppose from pulling him from the Batman history, however we are wrong, maybe.

The guys over at Bleeding Cool did a little more investigating into the character and actually found a “Johnny Blake” back in the older comic stories.

Not really much to go off of but we at least know that he did appear in the comic. Now is this the character Nolan had in mind and will talk about his back story? We don’t know. This could just be a pure coincidence as well and this has nothing to do with the character Nolan is talking about.

I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that this character is just a disguise for JGL’s real character…. Nolan you devilish man just tell me the truth!!!!!

Well that’s all for now, stay tune, same bat time, same bat place

    That green lantern movie looks like it has great graphics, makes me wonder if Ryan Reynolds is the only real one in it.
