green lanterns, light.

Harry Knowles shared this video over on Ain’t It Cool News, and I wanted to make sure I shared it with all of you.

Maybe I don’t talk about it enough on this blog, but in my day to day life I talk quite often about how much I wish there were more curiosity and childlike wonder in the world. If we could just let go of some of our cynicism and anger and feel wonder and humility… well, I honestly believe that can change the world.

This little kid epitomizes that wonder. He is awesome. I want to be more like him.

Also, props to Ryan Reynolds for being so great in his response.

Harry said it best, so I am going to leave it to him.

“Being a little Boy can be a magnificent thing at a place like this. Yoko and I tear up telling the story of what happens in this video because THIS IS PURE. This is the best thing that can happen. Where a little boy can meet his hero and ask him that burning question that he has in his soul. That question that forces him to get up in a room of thousands, to fight his way in line, to reach the microphone and…”

As has been the case every year of my life, I did not attend Comic-Con this year. Alas, that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it from afar. Here is some of the things I’m excited about, for now… as always, in no particular order.

1. The first image of Daniel Craig in Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens

——————————————————————————-

2. A new trailer for Tron Legacy

——————————————————————————-

3. Mark Ruffalo is the new Hulk!

It’s still far away, and we get Captain America and Thor in 2011, but news and rumors have still been trickling out steadily for months for The Avengers. First, in┬áterms of strictly Avengers casting news, it was Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, but then the rumors started to surface of Whedon directing, and now Ruffalo as the Hulk… Mark fucking Ruffalo! Who doesn’t love that guy? (If you say “me,” I will reach through this computer and bitch-slap you.)

——————————————————————————-

4. More and more people are seeing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World… and more and more people are going ape-shit!

——————————————————————————-

5. Another new trailer for Let Me In

It doesn’t suck. I still have mixed feelings, but, you know, the trailer really doesn’t suck! Plus, the great cast is going a long way in winning me over.

6. Trailer for The Goon

I know, lately everything is zombies and vampires. This isn’t anything new, it’s just more mainstream right now… especially concerning zombies. Sometimes, things are just too awesome to be kept for the fanboys and fangirls… especially concerning zombies.

7. The new poster/first full cast shot for AMC’s The Walking Dead

I’ll be writing about the Robert Kirkman graphic novel at length soon, if you haven’t read it, trust me, it’s awesome.

The cast looks great, and as Frank Darabont guides this baby to (un)life in October, I am as excited for this as I’ve ever been for the premier of any television show.
