Fanboy Fix: Green Lantern, Thor and The Avengers

New ‘Green Lantern’ Image

A new image of the Green Lantern alien Tomar-Re has landed online. For those who aren’t familiar with the character, he’s a member of the Green Lantern Corps. who takes a liking to Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) after he’s dubbed the latest Green Lantern from Earth. Tomar then becomes somewhat of a mentor to Jordan, teaching him what it means to be a Green Lantern. That, and he also looks pretty freaky.
‘Avengers’ Cameo in ‘Thor’
Those looking to keep far away from cool cameo spoilers may not want to read beyond this sentence. The Wrap reports that Jeremy Renner will be making a cameo as his Avengers character Hawkeye in the film Thor, due out in May. No word on when he’ll show up in the film, or how long he’ll stick around (or whether he’ll be in costume), but that should be enough to whet your Marvel appetites just a wee bit more.
‘The Avengers’ Searching for Another Female
And speaking of The Avengers, due out in 2012, word is producers are on the hunt for another female. Demi Lovato was at one point rumored to be that female, but it has since been revealed that she was simply being considered, and had not officially signed on. Seeing as Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is the only ass-kicking female in the Avengers line-up, another badass female could go a long way to bringing in more of that female audience. We don’t know who she’ll be playing just yet, but rumors claim it’ll most definitely be Wasp, especially if they plan to eventually spin this off into an Ant-Man movie directed by Edgar Wright.
