Like it, or not, Green Lantern is coming to theaters in 2011 and Ryan Reynolds will star as Hal Jordon (Green Lantern). The Green Lantern movie has received a lot of flack lately, because of the changes in cast and the filming delays. However, now that everything appears to be agreed upon, we have 99% of the movie details for this newest super-hero adventure coming in June 2011.
Green Lantern Trailer
Green Lantern Movie
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.
“I would say the tone absolutely wants to live in that kind of a world,” De Line said. “So it’s not dark it that regard.” “Our story is the Hal Jordan origin story, but creating the character of Hal Jordan that is a real character that will resonate with the fanbase is what we need to do. You have to make him credible and somebody to care about and tell a good story, and I think if we do that, we’ll be okay.”
Apparently the movie will spend lots of time in Space. Here’s another quote from director Martin Campbell
They Said It
Quote from the director and writer of Green Lantern:
“I don’t know what the percentage is, but there’s quite a bit in space. The initial trip up there, the training sessions he has to go through in order to become a Green Lantern. Then, of course at the end, he goes back up to Oa again. There are a couple of bits [on Earth] in between. I think there will be enough to satisfy everybody.”
Green Lantern Release Date
Summer 2011. Green Lantern has been pushed back till 2011 because of budget concerns. The rising Australian dollar has forced delays in shooting as costs have risen 25% with the dollar.
