    I for one and looking forward to seeing how they will be capturing the essence of superheros. I am excited for Thor mostly because of Chris but I also love the superhero.

    I am raising concerns about Green Lantern due to Ryan Reynolds. He is smoking in the green suit but his sarcastic humor from what I saw of the trailer, not too happy about that.
