It's been pointed out that The Big Bang Theory, produced by Warner Bros TV, is pretty much in bed with DC Comics. From choice of cosplay, to the new 52 displayed prominently, it's what' called synergy.
But not even that could protect a certain summer blockbuster from geek scorn this week. From the show's pre-title sequence…
SHELDON: "If we poison the critical thinking facilities of children by telling them that rabbits come out of hats, then we create adults who believe in astrology and homeopathy and that Ryan Reynolds was a better choice for Green Lantern than lovable rogue Nathan Fillion."
LEONARD: "But Sheldon, he's going to do a few magic tricks for kids – I really don't think they're going to end up liking the Green Lantern movie."
If only it were that simple.
