Warner Bros., with only a few hours until a panel for the film convenes at Comic-Con, have released the official logo for Green Lantern, the latest comic-book adaptation, and it’s a lot like the previous iteration we saw – I wonder if we’ll see the ‘Anyone Can Be Chosen’ tagline again?
Green Lantern, directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), stars Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal) as the titular character Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern, with a supporting cast featuring Blake Lively (The Private Lives of Pippa Lee), Peter Sarsgaard (An Education), Mark Strong (Kick-Ass) and Tim Robbins (The Lucky Ones). The first pics to emerge from the film are available to view here.
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 Parallaxhe will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
More information, and possibly a teaser trailer, concerning Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern, is likely to be available after the panel graces Comic-Con with their presence, so keep your eyes peeled.
