The new Green Lantern trailer has arrived, and like the latest trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, I just can’t get excited about it. Maybe it’s because of Ryan Reynolds and his glowing CG costume. Or because I never cared much for the Green Lantern comic. Hopefully it will be a surprise like the first Iron Man movie and I’ll be eating my words. Check it out below and let us know your thoughts — will Green Lantern suck or shine?
About Green Lantern:
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 (Ryan Reynolds). 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 hits theatres in 2-D and 3-D on June 17, 2011.
