Two New Green Lantern Character Posters
04.27.11 by BJSprecher
Two more of the 7200-strong members of the Green Lantern Corps now have their own official Green Lantern movie character posters. As the title hero of the movie, Earth's first Green Lantern, Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), was the first to receive his own character poster, with the peace-loving avian Lantern, Tomar-Re (100% CGI, voiced by Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush), receiving the second poster. Now, Warner Bros. (WB) has released, via Yahoo!, character posters for the order-obsessed Lantern Sinestro (Mark Strong) and the drill instructor of the Corps, Kilowog (100% CGI, voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan). Hopefully, WB will continue this trend and release character posters for all of the alien Lanterns confirmed to appear in the movie.
Here's the official plot synopsis of Green Lantern:
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds).
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
Directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), Green Lantern was written by Michael Green, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim. The movie based on the classic DC Comics character created by John Broome and Gil Kane that first appeared in Showcase #22 (October 1959). The cast includes Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond, Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller, Temuera Morrison as Abin Sur and Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins as Senator Hammond.
