New Green Lantern Movie Promotional Art

Gifted by the Green Lantern Corps with a power ring capable of creating anything his mind can imagine and his will can muster, test pilot Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is ready to take on...birthday parties?!? Promotional art for director Martin Campbell's Green Lantern adaptation has been somewhat scarce. Now a whole bunch of new art for the movie has turned up in an unlikely place—the "Green Lantern Party Supplies" album of Simply Superheroes' Facebook page. Included are numerous shots of Reynolds flying through space in costume as Green Lantern, as well as a couple shots of the alien Lanterns Kilowog and Tomar-Re.
Green Lantern is based on the classic DC Comics character created by John Broome and Gil Kane that first appeared in Showcase #22 in 1959 (an earlier character with the same name but with a different costume and origin was created by Martin Nodell and Bill Finger and first appeared in All-American Comics #16 in 1940). The screenplay adaptation was written by Michael Green, Greg Berlanti, and Marc Guggenheim, who also wrote a treatment for Green Lantern 2 and are currently writing the screenplay for another DC Comics adaptation, The Flash. The Green Lantern cast includes Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins, Mark Strong, and Angela Bassett.
