Green Lantern Film Posters

The character posters from Comic Con have now been unleashed upon the internet. They don’t reveal much, but it’s probably wise to have a subtle and slightly intriguing way to initially promote the film to non-fanboys who may be getting sick of superhero films. Below are posters of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Blake Lively as Carol Ferris/Star Sapphire, Mark Strong as Sinestro and Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond.

Directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) the film opens on June 17 next year. Here’s the official synopsis.

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.

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.

Under the posters is a great video from Comic Con in which Reynolds recites the Green Lantern oath. It can’t be easy to make it sound cool on the big screen, but Reynolds sure does here.
