Several weeks ago, Entertainment Weekly had a cover story about the upcoming comic book movie "Green Lantern." Now, after weeks of anticipation, the first trailer was released.

Starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by Martin Campbell, this is one of several movies based on comic book characters being released in 2011.  Others include "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger."

I've always been a sucker for big-budget Hollywood blockbuster superhero movies, so you can bet I'll be counting the days until I can see this one.  After all, green is my favorite color!
