What kind of superhero movie can we expect Green Lantern to be? Is it going to rank up there with The Dark Knight? Or will it turn out to be a turkey like Elektra? According to screenwriter Greg Berlanti, there's a reason it'll rank up there with the best.

During a press tour for the romantic comedy Life as We Know It, which Berlanti directed, the conversation turned to his script for Green Lantern.

Here's what he had to say:

"It definitely has slightly lighter elements, but the thing that gives it its gravitas and its weight that no other superhero film really has—maybe except for all the way back to Donner's Superman—is the space opera element and how much of it takes place in space. That's something I don't think people are expecting or have seen in a movie like this before."
