LanternCast Episode #295 – Alien: Covenant Commentary Track!

And now for something completely different (and hopefully, interesting)! Mark and Corwin Crowl tackle Alien: Covenant in this full-length commentary track!  With any luck, they can determine which crew was stupider: the Prometheus or the Covenant.  There might not be Green Lantern references in this track, but we certainly do have tons of other franchises that get mentioned.  Be sure to email us your thoughts or chime in on our voice-mail at 708-LANTERN!

Initial Thoughts: Telos #5

Telos_Vol_1-5_Cover-1_TeaserThis isn’t going to be an actual issue review, since Chad and I will do that once we get to the February books, but I wanted to write a few words about my reaction to Telos #5.

 

While it is always good to see classic Parallax back and he looks really good in this issue, the way he is written continues to bother me.  Jeff King wrote Parallax this way back in the final two issues of Convergence, but since Parallax wasn’t in those issues much, it wasn’t as big of a problem for me.  But Telos #5 makes it pretty clear while King must like Parallax, he really doesn’t understand him.

 

His Parallax is pretty much a petulant child who always acts out, constantly throws the simplest of insults out towards others, often is just a minute away from killing someone and seems incapable of thinking beyond the moment.  If Zero Hour showed us anything, Parallax was certainly capable of thinking big picture.

 

Parallax, while more unstable and volatile than Hal Jordan, still possessed all the strengths that made Hal a great character.  He was able to cross the line when necessary, but was still driven by his amazing will and his desire to do the right thing,  I have yet to see much of that in Parallax since his return to the DCU (Post-Covergence).  Plus, this Parallax acts and talks like he is simply stupider than Hal Jordan.

 

Hopefully Green Lantern #50 will give us at least a version of Parallax that closer resembles the original.  I definitely don’t expect Telos #6 to deliver that based on what I just read.

Ant-Man

As we get closer to the format, I want… here’s a spoiler free trip into the small but entertaining world of Marvel’s Ant-Man!.

Terminator Genisys

While the technical aspects of this review need work, hopefully the concept and content of our 1st video/audio movie review will balance it out.

How does the new Terminator measure up to Arnolds past? Let’s find out!

RUMOR ROUNDUP: John Stewart “LEAD” in 2020 Green Lantern Movie?

It is being reported currently by ComicBook.com and the PopCorn Talk youtube channel that John Stewart is being cast in the upcoming DC Comics/Warner Bros ‘Green Lantern’ movie (tentative release of 2020). While the ComicBook.com headline states that John Stewart is the “lead” in the feature, it seems like this is, as yet, not the case. The rumor is that they’re looking to “cast” John Stewart, not that they’re looking to “cast John Stewart as the LEAD”.

 

At this point, all of this is RUMOR. So the whole thing could prove to be false or 100% true, lead character and all.

 

The source video is posted below for those interested (Green Lantern talk starts at 21:35):
