I was shocked and offended by one particular scene in the "Green Lantern" movie. When Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds, was whisked away from Earth to be "trained" and initiated into some galactic police force (something like that), he was placed on a cross-shaped table in a classic crucifixion posture. He was wearing only a loin cloth and during the "procedure" he was injured by some sort of energy that caused him to scream in pain as first, his hands and then his feet and then the right side of his abdomen glowed red for a few seconds. Then he was wrapped up in his green uniform and given great powers.
I was quite offended and saddened by this blatant blasphemy. I didn't know at the time that the G.L. character was supposed to be homosexual too. There were also a lot of occult symbols prominently featured in some scenes. I guess a lot of atheists are threatened by the reality of Jesus and take Him very seriously - in a backwards kind of way.
