Dark or not, Green Lantern is well into production, and in an interview with MTV, Marc Guggenheim gave the low down on what Green Lantern stories inspired the movie.
â€œCertainly â€˜Emerald Dawnâ€™ was one of the things that we read at the outset,â€ said Guggenheim when asked about the connection between spoiler and screenplay. Of course, looking to â€œDawnâ€ only reveals one piece of the puzzle.
Also included will be characterization from the 1970′s Neal Adams/Denny O’Neil comics dealing with drug use and other social issues, the Dave Gibbons era, and we might also see elements from Geoff Johns recent Secret Origin arc.
Sounds good to me.Â I’ve always equated Emerald Dawn as the definitive origin of Green Lantern, even with that dopey yellow Legion robot.
