Green Lantern Movie In The Works?

Comic strips into movies are hot right now! Next up to make its big screen debut is the Green Lantern. It's currently in development with the team of Marc Guggenheim, Greg Berlanti, and Michael Green writing the script.

Guggenheim says, "I think Green Lantern has the potential to be a very highly regarded superhero movie. We're approaching it with such respect and such care. And really, it's written to be a movie that everyone who's not familiar with the character can enjoy, but there are so many nods to things that I know the fans love and care about that I think people will be very happy."

For those of you unfamiliar, Green Lantern is the name of several super heroes who possess a ring that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The script has been getting great reviews, and insiders think it has the potential of being bigger than Iron Man or maybe even The Dark Knight.

Are you excited to see a big screen adaptation of Green Lantern? Who should be the leading men?
