Green Lantern and 2011 Supermovie blitzkrieg

Promo art for the upcoming GREEN LANTERN film.

The first trailer for Green Lantern gives a sneak peek at Ryan Reynolds (People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” 2010) in action as Hal Jordan of sector 2814.  Some casual fans are wondering “Why is Green Lantern not a Black guy?” due to Bruce Timm’s casting choice for the Justice League cartoon, but perhaps John Stewart will follow in Rhodey’s “Iron Man” footsteps as African-American backup? There will be a whole slew of superhero movies in 2011, not the least of which are the Marvel icons Captain America and Thor.  It looks like the Superhero Rhetoric course for Fall 2011 will have plenty of pop-currency to mine, and UNT will also be sponsoring a Comics Studies Symposium for Spring 2011 (more details forthcoming).
