Today Warner Bros. announced that Green Lantern will be released on December 17th 2010, which means it will be going up against the Smurfs!

Usually, men-in-spandex drop into theatres during the summer months, but with Iron Man 2, Thor, and The Green Hornet all set for summer 2010, DC wisely chose to corner the holiday market instead. Currently, the film is scheduled to debut the same weekend as Sony’s big screen adaptation of the Smurfs. Blue vs. Green. I’m putting my money on green and guessing that blue will find another date that is a lot more smurfy.
Now the release date is set we should expect things to start rolling, with filming most likely to start towards the end of this year.
