Green Lantern - Updates 4.27.2011

I initially saw Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern and I thought that this fool would ruin the Green Lantern movie in its entirety.  I saw this trailer and I think I should have had faith in the epic story behind the Green Lantern Corps.   While Ryan Reynolds is in my opinion totally the wrong casting choice for this role, unless they are changing the Green Lantern/Hal Jordan's character to a complete HO.

My negative opinion aside, this movie will definitely be another Home Theater Classic to add to the Blu-ray collection.  The $150,000,000 spent to produce this movie will guarantee special effects that will blow your system away.

The Official Movie Synopsis is as follows:
   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/Hal Jordan's love interest Carol Ferris is being played by Blake Lively.  Who it appears will have ample "skill to fill the role".

This Character(Carol Ferris) in the movie could lead to an interesting development (unless they bring it out in this movie).  In the comic book Carol Ferris turns evil after breaking up with Green Lantern and becomes Star Sapphire


Peter Sarsgaard will play the Villain in the movie, Dr. Hector Hammond.  A scientist who discovers the fragments of a strange meteor that causes his brain to grow to enormous size, granting him psionic powers.


Mark Strong plays Sinestro, another Lantern that acts as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern's mentor into the Lantern Corps.

Dr. Amanda Waller a fierce Government agent played by Angela Bassett.

Abin Sur, the Lantern that crashes in to earth and recruits Hal Jordan, is played by Temuera Morrison

Well back to the point, this is 4 minutes of footage that changed my mind about the possibilities in this movie for audio/video blast off capabilities.  Check it out.
