New Green Lantern Video Looks At Why Hal Jordan Is Chosen
Warner Bros. has premiered a new behind-the-scenes video for Green Lantern called “Becoming a Green Lantern” that delves into Hal Jordan’s journey from reckless test pilot to intergalactic police officer. The featurette includes some new footage, plus commentary from director Martin Campbell, stars Ryan Reynolds and Mark Strong, and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
Green Lantern, which opens in 2D and 3D on June 17, also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Temuera Morrison, Tim Robbins, Taika Waititi and Angela Bassett.
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.
