    I had a feeling the first time I saw the teaser/trailer of this movie that it wouldn't be that good...and fall short of what the story is all about. I kind of feel bad for these guys that created awesome characters in comics and watch them in disappointment on the big screen.

    Now I haven't seen this movie yet, but I've read a ton of reviews from comic-readers & non-comic-readers...The overall consensus is it's a good kids movie, but that is it...why can't more directors take what they did in Wolverine or the newer Batman and make it more adult...doesn't have to be rated R, but they could could make it a bit more suspenseful & dramatic...the sort of things that would attract non-comic-readers.

    I enjoy comics and every time one of these movies come out, I cringe, I can almost tell right away it's going to suck (as a comics fan)

    ever since I saw Spider-man 3 I've completely lost faith in these COMIC BOOK MOVIES

    Matt Flynns SB ring also works as a green lantern ring. He is undefeated in space as well as on earth.

    My biggest issue with comic book movies is the reboots. So annoying. I don't need to see another origin story, sorry. They have 10,000 stories to choose from, stop using the same one!

    I really don't mind them. Most of the comics turned to movies lately I have never read. Fantastic-4, X-Men, Ironman, and Green Lantern I knew nothing about. So to me the movies stand alone as a self contained story.
