A moment of silence for 9/11...

This classic Alex Ross artwork for the "9/11 DC Comics tribute" inspires a moment of silence... and a solemn reminder that we remember that day and those who gave their lives to help their fellowmen like true heroes.

"Green Lantern" stars Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively... Married!

The news surprised me like Ganthet's long hair standing out over the other Guardians!

Apparently and by way of news from People and Entertainment Weekly, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively married over the weekend in South Carolina! The actor and actress, who co-starred together as Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris respectively in 2011's live action adaptation of "Green Lantern", have been dating for over a year now and have finally decided to tie the know together in a pairing that's sure to get fans and admirers talking. Reynolds was previously married to another superhero actress, namely Scarlett Johansson, who plays Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios' "The Avengers". Even if "Green Lantern" was a disappointment for most of us, it's pretty special to see something come out of an on-screen pairing and a real life comic couple marriage between "Green Lantern and Star Sapphire"! It also makes this particular scene from the movie quite funny...

Congratulations and well wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds, and for more on the story, visit the source post at People , EW, and the official Green Lantern Movie Facebook page!
