Let’s face it. Batman Begins was terrific, but the Dark Knight, that was truly something special.

A lot of speculation was afoot. After DC’s Flashpoint…after 50 plus tie ins…they were going to reboot…refresh…re-something their franchises.

I personally don’t feel like much was wrong with Campell’s Green Lantern, but there’s no denying many did.
I’ll admit, I walked out and yeah, there were some things missing….but only things that could have made it Spider-Man/Batman gold. This movie deserves to at least rank in the Fanboy top 10 and at least warrants another film, and hopefully a trilogy.
