Idris Elba stars in fan-made 'Green Lantern Corps' trailer

Although most fans are still scrubbing memories of 2011's Green Lantern from their minds, YouTuber Alex Luthor is already looking ahead to the planned 2020 reboot Green Lantern Corps.

Using footage from Green Lantern, TRON: Legacy, Pacific Rim, John Carter and other films, he casts Idris Elba as John Stewart and Garrett Hedlund as (presumably) Hal Jordan. The editing is nowhere as polished as some of Alex's earlier work -- some of the heads appear as if they were literally pasted on bodies -- but he continues to demonstrate his skill at weaving together an engaging, cohesive narrative.

And, really, that's more than you can say about some of the professionals.
