Warner Bros. Pictures has released the Comic-Con International-exclusive character teaser posters for Green Lantern that, in addition to showcasing stars Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, give us our first official glimpses of Mark Strong as Sinestro and Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond. As a bonus, they also give a no to the Green Lantern oath.
Directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern also stars Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins and Jon Tenney. 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.
Green Lantern opens on June 17, 2011.
