It's fairly nondescript but we can kind of get a sense for how the energy works. I liked the Ethan Van Sciver-inspired floating emblem thing.

I actually liked that quick bit. Very LOTR prologue-ish scene with the alliance of Man, Amazons, and Atlanteans, invoking memores of the elves and men uniting to face Sauron.

Though like Ion said above, it would have been better if the movie bookended with the GLC showing up as the cavalry at the end. They could have cleaned up the parademons while the League took out Steppenwolf.

It was okay for what it was. Too bad it showed a GL getting killed, but I see the desired effect they were going for.

Thanks to Blog of Oa I'm pretty sure we now know that GL was Yalun Gur, not that it really matters but it's still a cool easter egg.

As for the scene itself I wish it was longer but I loved what we got! The hammer construct looked great and I really liked the sound the ring made. Was hoping for a Green Lantern post credit scene but I'm just happy we at least got what we did. Even though JL isn't doing too well I hope we still get Green Lantern Corps by 2020.

I actually didn't mind it. It was a cool tease in an otherwise underwhelming film.

I thought the Green Lantern appearance in the film was great, but fleeting and not discernible.

I still haven't seen it, but meanwhile, Den of Geek confirms that it IS Yalan Gur and shows concept art for him.
