"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
More than a year away from the release of Green Lantern, Warner Bros. has unveiled an official logo and first promotional art for the highly anticipated movie.
The images, along with the slogan “Anyone Can Be Chosen,” apparently accompanied a press release issued Friday by Warner Bros. Consumer Products announcing “a landmark year ahead for DC Comics and master toy licensee Mattel,” and hyping the “incredibly wide merchandise appeal” of Green Lantern. The promo art is obviously geared toward courting new licensees for the June 2011 film.
/Film, which discovered the images, also has the cover from Global License! magazine depicting WBCP President Brad Globe wearing a Green Lantern ring, and an ad touting DC Comics’ “Universe of Opportunities” (Hal Jordan is front and center, naturally).
Directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Angela Bassett and Tim Robbins. The movie opens on June 17, 2011.
