    Isn't that essentially "First Flight?" (except the tyranny part, but the rest is there including him going yellow)

    I like that for the most part. Especially, since everyone else in the DCAU comes off as so terribly bland. Tbh, the only time I want to see DCAU Hal “super serious” is either when things are so dire he has no other choice but to be or if he’s starring in his own animated movie (which he’s more than ready for already)

    No Korugar, no sector, barely any personal dynamic between Hal and Sin, no fight for freedom between Hal and Sin, no banishment to the Antimatter universe, no ending up on Qward, etc. Also, Sin didn’t turn yellow at the end of Emerald Dawn II the way he did in First Flight at all

    First Flight still came pretty close to the Training Day scenario, with Sinestro being not nearly as likable as Denzel, which was a good thing. I like they made it crystal clear that Sinestro was a douche from the start. I'm still surprised they got away with the torture scene.

    This is oddly satisfying and I don't even know the context for the punch .

    Yes, there are differences in terms of details, but the character arcs are the same. If you wish there were a direct adaptation of EDII, that's what you want to see, but I don't think they'd ever do a story that was as similar as "FF" imo. Maybe if it were just about Korugar and the fight to liberate the planet and involve Katma etc, it might be different enough.

    New Frontier was perhaps the most faithful outside media adaptation we've had in recent memory. And even there they had to cut tons of material to accommodate the 1 hour runtime. I remember Bruce Timm saying he regretted not making it two parts like they did with TDKR. Hal's origin was still really well done despite that they didn't emphasize as much on the PTSD aspect from the original story.

    Happy New Year, Johnny. I liked that one, too. The BluRay covers he did for the aborted third and fourth seasons covering the Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night were also fantastic.

    Either way. Hal still needs a new animated movie. It’s been way too long. What would you guys want to see?

    I know they've talked a lot about adapting Sinestro Corps. War.
