One of the major reasons it can be daunting for casual comic book fans to get back into comics or start reading a new character is just the ton of back story and continuity you have to be aware of. Honestly that´s one for the reasons I havent´t gotten back into the Flash even though I hear Geoff Jons has done some great work with the character.
Since there are more and more superhero movies releasing, viewers could end up with the same problem. Some know Superman, some know Batman, but not everyone might know the ins and outs of Green Lantern. So in anticipation of the upcoming movie release Warner Bros. has released a video for Newbies. Giving us the low down of the characters, the superpowers and what makes the Lantern corp so special.
For fans there are quite a few shots from the movie nothing you havent already seen in the trailer but always interesting to see how they adapted a lof of the sometimes hard to grasp concept.
For the ladies (and some fellas) I guess there is quite a bit of Ryan Reynolds so still worth a watch. And better to be prepared when the nerdier part of the couple starts geeking out after dragginf you to the movies as the release of this much anticipated movie is just around the corner.
