Although it had been widely speculated, DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns confirmed earlier today at the New York Comic Con that the first trailer for the upcoming Green Lantern film from Warner Brothers will be attached to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1, which hits theaters on November 19, 2010.
Johns, under whose penmanship the Green Lantern stable of characters have enjoyed a revival for the last several years, has been actively advising director Martin Campbell in an effort to help the film keep to the spirit of the comics. He promised those in attendance at his panel, “If you guys like the comics now, you’ll probably like the film.”
While I am a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see a trailer today at the con, it is nice to know that we know have a definite date when we will be able to see it.
We’ll have more from Johns’ panel later on this weekend.
Green Lantern hits theaters on June 17, 2011.
