It’s time to find out how Martin Campbell plans on bringing the Green Lantern legend to the big screen. Warner Bros has released the official plot synopsis of the film that will cover the origin story of the title character. Ryan Reynolds will play Hal Jordan the pilot who eventually turns into the intergalactic hero and possessor of a powerful ring…

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 will debut in theaters on June 17, 2011 in 2D and 3D. Besides Reynolds and Lively, the cast also includes Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins.
