Biggest question: Did the Ryan Reynolds movie poison the well for future "Green Lantern" films? Here's an exciting thought. If DC decided to go with Jon Stewart as the Green Lantern for this movie, then they could conceivably release two big superhero films in one summer with black leads. That shouldn't be the primary reason for a decision, of course, but even the possibility is enough to feel confident that we're turning a corner in terms of how our superheroes have to look. I want to see DC take chances with how they tell these stories and who they tell them for, and they have a chance here to show just how inclusive the DC universe can be. Whatever happens, I hope they're able to course correct, because this is property with huge storytelling potential, and they shouldn't let that first misfire of a film deter them.
