Hal Jordan Will Not StutterIf the buzz around "Green Lantern" is non-existent, don't worry, because Warner Bros. is well aware of the problem. They recently admitted that the first trailer wasn't so hot and conceded that the effects are taking much longer to lock down than they expected, hence the lack of whizzbangwow show-off footage as yet. The movie is racing to the finish line -- a new trailer is expected to arrive in front of "Thor" with a big marketing push likely to follow -- and director Martin Campbell is assembling his voice cast fairly late in the game.

Hal Jordan Will Not Stutter



If the buzz around "Green Lantern" is non-existent, don't worry, because Warner Bros. is well aware of the problem. They recently admitted that the first trailer wasn't so hot and conceded that the effects are taking much longer to lock down than they expected, hence the lack of whizzbangwow show-off footage as yet. The movie is racing to the finish line -- a new trailer is expected to arrive in front of "Thor" with a big marketing push likely to follow -- and director Martin Campbell is assembling his voice cast fairly late in the game.

Michael Clarke Duncan was recently revealed to be stepping in to voice Kilowog, and now another thesp will get his vocal cords going. Hero Complex reveals that Geoffrey Rush will give life to Tomar-Re, that weird looking, bird like creature you see up top.

The actor is just coming off his fourth Oscar nomination thank-you-very-much (he won in 1997 for "Shine") and he'll lend his prestige-filled pipes to the proceedings. In the comics Tomar-Re is part of the Green Lantern Corps who helps the newest Earthling member of the team learn to use his powers. We also presume that if Hal Jordan has a slight stutter, that will be fixed as well.

We're still waiting to get excited about this one, but we'll keep an open mind. "Green Lantern" puts on the power ring on June 17th.
