Hi Ho Silver…Away! Okay, now that that is out of my system. Below is the first official trailer for Disney’s The Lone Ranger. I for one am happy to see the heroes of those who came before made into big budget movies, I mean a fella can only take so many Michael Bay Transformer movies before that inner child dies, right?

But in all honesty, it doesn’t look too bad. Now I’m not a Lone Ranger guy, the extent of my Ranger knowledge begins and ends with the summers I spent at my grandfather’s house and all he would watch was the Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, and Roy Rogers. As a western this all seems pretty rote by now, you have the introduction of the railway, bad guys try to take control of it, hero stops them. The problem I have is that this trailer is almost exclusively Tonto.

I don’t know, I may see it, but then I may try to preserve the memories of little Chris a little longer. I did REALLY like watching those westerns with my grandpa and I’m not all that sure if I’m ready to share that moment with a crow-hat wearing Johnny Depp.

Though I did have a thought: Does this mean we will see a Hopalong Cassidy film next?

    I’m looking forward to seeing the film mainly because my LR & Tonto love is due solely to the last few years of comics. I love them. I highly recommend picking up the most recent volume – the first story arc was just collected into trade pb. Ande Parks does a ton of research and still makes whatever creative adjustments he needs to mold a riveting story. Tonto is an equal partner, through and through, not just “a sidekick.”

    Are those done by Dynamite Amber? I’ll have to give them a look, always on the lookout for another good comic. I tend to be more forgiving of those, wonder why that is…
