Richard is REALLY gonna hate this..

Ain't It Cool on the Jack Black/Green Lantern movie:

All Those Rumors About GREEN LANTERN... They’re True! Dear God, They’re True!! Hi, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab... Jack Black has closed his deal. He will be playing Green Lantern in a film that has been described as a “zany comedy version a la THE MASK.” All rights to the DC comic have been worked out as well, so you can expect to start hearing more about this project in the months ahead. As I understand it, DC Comics tried desperately to dodge this bullet, but ultimately, they don’t have the right to veto something if Warner Bros. really wants to make it happen. This is the problem with the way DC’s deal with their corporate overlords is structured. Their hands are tied. As much as they are aware of the problem with this approach to the material, they just have to sit back and watch it happen along with fans of the character and the rich mythology that has been established over the long run of the various GREEN LANTERN titles.

Either way, this one just passed from “rumor” to “confirmed news,” so brace yourselves, comic fans. It’s coming...

Well, this is just intolerable.
