Angela Bassett to Oversee Villains in "Green Lantern"

Posted: March 25th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Angela Bassett to Oversee Villains in "Green Lantern"Submit Comment
Angela Bassett (How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Notorious) is joining the cast of "Green Lantern," a DC Comics superhero film that's directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and stars Ryan Reynolds.

Bassett is playing Dr. Amanda Waller, a government agent who in comics lore became charged with overseeing the Suicide Squad, a government-run group of captured supervillains performing tasks in exchange for eventual freedom. It is unclear if that group will pop up in "Lantern" or if that mythology is being set up.

"Lantern" recently began filming in New Orleans with a cast comprised of Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard and Tim Robbins. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17th, 2011.

I dunno, adding her to this movie would make this movie uh... uh... uh... Complex? It might... It might just not be.. uh... good? Hasn't that ever occurred to you man!?

Campbell's done his research well

This is a great move, she really can deliver (unlike Lively who can only look f*ckable enough, but i guess that is her role in this superhero flick), now lets hope this movie turns out good.

@telur - You do realize she is almost 2x Oliva Munn's age.

The Waller character is great. One of my favs. And Bassett is a perfect choice for this role. A bit underweight and in that sense I would DEFINITELY gone with CCH Pounder. She actually voices Waller in the JLU animated series and does a killer job.

This Waller is way hotter than her comic/animated counterpart. I don't know how she fits in GL, but a Suicide Squad movie would be awesome!

@COC - stay away from that tough math gurl... otherwise your little brain will pop like your mother's did.

@Bunny, I 100% agree about CCH would be perfect if they wanted to stay true to the comic character and yes Bassett is a great choice as well.
I'm impressed by your knowledge of the comic/anime genre. Not just that mainstream superficial understanding. Kudos
And no, it's not because you're a girl. I know a lot of women who have sufficient knowledge of the genre but you seems to have a real level headed and deep knowledge.
