(Not sure whether to put this in Movies or the comic book thread in Literature.)

Looks okay, but the costume still looks stupid and obviously CGI. They also seem to have changed Hal's character traits a little as well, which I don't really like, but I guess that means if they make the Flash movie and they choose to use Barry Allen, they can make him funny like Wally West.

Yeah kinda seems like a combination of Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner...Which ruins my idea for a trilogy. Which goes...

Hal becomes GL, fights Sinestro.....Hal sees coast city destroyed becomes Paralex....Jordan Vs. Rayner

I'm not the biggest fan of Kyle, but the Parallax thing would be cool. I'd like to see John Stewart and Guy Gardner back up Hal at some point. I think I did read somewhere that we'd be seeing one or both of them at some point. Hope that turns out to be true.

I actually like this fan trailer a lot better. It takes Hal more seriously for one thing, while still having moments of lightness and brevity.

I do like the part just after the one minute mark (right after the WB and DC logos), when the awesome music kicks in and we get our first glimpse of space, though.

I haven't heard anything about the BL Corps in relation to this movie, and I think that storyline is just too massive for one film anyway, especially the first film where they have to cram in the origin story too. Maybe in Green Lantern 3?

The next one I think will probably be Dark Knight Rises, and then Man of Steel, that Superman reboot Christopher Nolan is producing with Zack Snyder directing.

Funny enough, this was the exact thing I was thinking about last night. I doubt a Flash movie would work because he's not as popular with the general public and doesn't seem to have the same level of drama as Batman or Superman. Plus, a good hero needs a good villain, and I'm sure most if not all non-comic book fans would be hard pressed to name just one character in Flash's rogues gallery.
That Aquaman adaptation has been talked about a lot ever since Adrian Grenier (I think that's his name) played him in Entourage, and they even filmed a TV pilot starring Justin Hartley (who plays Green Arrow in Smallville) but that never got picked up. Same as with Flash, I doubt most people could name a single Aquaman villain, and on top of that, many consider him kind of lame.
If they got someone really passionate about it, and who had big ideas for the character, I actually think a Martian Manhunter movie just might actually work. He's got some great powers, he's fairly interesting, and like Supes, he's got that drama of being the last surviving member of an alien species who is faced with the choice of protecting a planet and race not his own, when he could easily just destroy or conquer them. He seems to have little bits of Superman, Batman (parts of his personality), and Green Lantern (the battling aliens thing) in him, which could make a very compelling combination.
Wonder Woman's also long overdue for her own movie too. She is one of DC's "Big Three".

Oh, wait, you said 'animated'. In that case I think absolutely anything's possible. Maybe they could take the Batman: Gotham Knight and Halo: Legends idea and apply it to the entire Justice League. Have a bunch of acclaimed Japanese animation studios work on a collection of short films packaged on one DVD exploring the lives of each hero.

Edit:
I hear DC Showcase Original Shorts Collection is supposed to be coming out some time this year. And according to Wikipedia, Batman: Year One, and Green Lantern: Emerald Knights are both coming in 2011.

I don't get how he's supposed to be irresponsible if he's responsible for 100 million dollar planes, and not fearless if he's a friggin' test/fighter pilot...
