Several weeks ago, we brought you an exclusive first look at the YF-32 Experimental Jet plane that is being used for Martin Campbell's Green Lantern movie. The jet will be piloted by our hero's father, Martin Jordan (portrayed by Jon Tenney in the film), and will not only be the cause of his demise but the catalyst of Hal Jordan's lifelong struggle to concur fear.

It appears to be based off of the X-35 Joint Strike Fighter, and is roughly 2/3 scale. According to CBM scooper Dave, the jet was taken out of its hanger at New Orleans Lakefront Airport, which is being used as the Ferris Aircraft airfield set, for screen testing today:

The jet could be a little more futuristic, it looks like the F-35 (http://vimeo.com/3437045)It was created by Lockheed Martin as a Gen5 fighter jet.
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 7:17 PM
Is it wrong to post that InstigatorGIRL is smoking like a pack of Kools? I think it's the glasses.
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 7:20 PM
You can also see the F-35 by clicking on the link for Nitro Planes, on the left side of the page.

LMAO@Captain Sweatpants. I'm sensing you are a Big Bang Theory fan? lol.
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 7:40 PM
OMG! InstigatorGIRL you are most perceptive. Not many people have guessed the origin of my name. Hats off my dear lady. Beautiful and Brilliant, a deadly combination. Please use your gifts carefully. (flattery)

spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 7:47 PM
My bad MultipurposePoni, I didn't read the article. Wzup with some cool points for recognizing the plane correlation on my own. Not to mention I added a link of the actual plane on a test run.
InstigatorGIRL - 5/5/2010, 7:48 PM
I want one of those Ironettes outfits that would be awesome to be for Halloween! lol. I just love how they have the glowing pieces.

@Captain Sweatpants I will try. lol. I knew the origin because I love Big Bang Theory! I ♥ Sheldon!
InstigatorGIRL - 5/5/2010, 7:51 PM
@ngu I am with you there homefry. I personally want Mike Madsen to voice him like he did in the animated flick.
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 7:51 PM
@MuliPurposePoni so cold brother. Ice chips on the nips cold dude. It's cool thought without you we wouldn't even be able to talk about the plane bro. +50 cp's for MPP
ngu13 - 5/5/2010, 7:51 PM
@MultiPurposePoni have you herd any thing as to .who will be doing voice overs in the film ...if not who do you think would be good for each lantern.. that is cgi
InstigatorGIRL - 5/5/2010, 7:52 PM
LMAO @Poni I would hate to have you as a teacher/judge. lol. jk.
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 7:53 PM
I just noticed that rhymed :-P
SHHH - 5/5/2010, 7:53 PM
RDJ is a Lucky man...

@Captain Sweatpants: Don't tell em you didn't read it:) jk
Clancy Brown for Kilowog yes!!!
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 8:00 PM
I hope that the Guardians will finish each others sentences. I just found out Temuera Morrison will be Abin Sur. That's Jango Fett dude!
InstigatorGIRL - 5/5/2010, 8:03 PM
@InterestingJohn Same here. I read that part of the script and while picturing it in my head, honestly, I got teary eyed. It's an intense scene far more intense than what Secret Origins did with it.

@Poni Okay Then I will have to remember not to ask you to judge me in anything. I'll end up feeling really sad. LMAO.
ngu13 - 5/5/2010, 8:04 PM
MultiPurposePon..InstigatorGIRL I AM WATCHING THE CARTOON FIRST FLIGHT NOW ...IN UK ITS 3.02 AM ...LOL I CANT WAIT FOR THIS FILM .. IF THEY KEEP MOST OF IT IN SPACE .CGI THIS IS GANA BE EPIC FILM FOR DC
InstigatorGIRL - 5/5/2010, 8:06 PM
@InterestingJohn I am always cool with MCD as anything. EVEN as the Kingpin. =P So I could go for that, but I still would like Mike Madsen.
spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 8:12 PM
Ooh KingPin, what about MCD as Mantue in Sin City. I didn't care for him as Balrog though.
THEMRTERRIFIC - 5/5/2010, 8:20 PM
Cool!

How come most superheroes parents are dead?
InstigatorGIRL - 5/5/2010, 8:35 PM
@Star Its like Disney and their animated flicks. Why do most of the main characters have a dead/absent parent?
I think Disney is trying to program the kids to... KILL THEIR PARENTS!!!

spellmanmarcus - 5/5/2010, 8:38 PM
@Starsapphire, It helps to shape their personalities. They feel responsible for not being able to save their loved ones so they try to save others. It's carthetic. In addition the lack of social ties makes it easier to put oneself in harms way. That is why I became CAPATAIN SWEEEAAAT PAAAAANTSSSS! (yes that was a hiss at the end, lol)

Suffertree - 5/5/2010, 10:43 PM

@InstigatorGIRL - Going back to the Disney thing...as the story goes, Walt Disney felt responsible for the death of his mother. He bought her a new home in north Hollywood which apparently had a faulty furnace. She died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Therefore the absence of one parent was his way of providing empathy for children who had lost a parent.

Multi - Always very good stuff from you ... I'm surprised you didn't interview RR about being Hall Jordan yet ... ;-)
