Warner Bros has released a new photo from their latest comic adaptation The Green Lantern. Instead of playing up the superhero elements of the movie, the image reveals a rather normal looking Hal Jordan and Hector Hammond. The duo, who will become mortal enemies, seem to be staring at something off in the distance. What is it? Check out the full photo…
Are we the only ones getting a serious Rain Man vibe from this photo? The look of stress on Ryan Reynolds‘ face, and the disconnected gaze on Peter Sarsgaard’s speaks volumes. They seem to be attending a major event, judging by their clothes, and the crowd of people behind them. What do you think?
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.
The Green Lantern debuts in theaters on June 17.
