Check This Out: Early Green Lantern Movie Concept Art?!

Of all the things that could've showed up tonight, I never would've expected early concept art from Green Lantern to be the big news. We just finished featuring the Halo: Fall of Reach concept art, and now we've got new images from Green Lantern that were attached to the script in order to sell it. If you remember a couple of weeks back we posted a very brief update on Green Lantern, which mainly consisted a review of a new script written by Greg Berlanti. To be clear, these photos were part of that script, and not other drafts that have been floating around. Take a look at below and see if you can make some sense out of them.
These were drawn by illustrator Brian Murray and originally found on his website - murraystudios.com. They're apparently part of Greg Berlanti's "totally kicks ass" script, which is apparently circulating inside of Warner Brothers to be eventually directed by Berlanti, too. I can't exactly say these scenes will end up looking this way in a movie, if one ever gets made, but at least they're a start. Thoughts?
Green Lantern is a very popular DC Comics superhero. He's been embodied by various individuals, including Alan Scott and Hal Jordan. Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. With these images and a solid script, we many finally get to see a Green Lantern movie.
