Fresh from New York Comic Con and currently echoing within the comic and movie blogosphere is the news that the hotly anticipated “Green Lantern” trailer will be attached to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 1,” the second-to-last film in the Harry Potter series set to debut on November 19, 2010.
“Green Lantern” scribe and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns made the announcement at the DC Entertainment Panel, perhaps to acknowledge (as early as possible) the hope of many an attending fan that Warner Bros. might release a teaser trailer at some point during the con. Alas, like Thanksgiving, the sight of Ryan Reynolds’ sweet smooth green jammies will have us waiting until November.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis, courtesy of the new “Green Lantern” website:
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” is slated to open in theaters on June 17, 2011.
