Earlier today I was reading CHUD, where Devin Faraci cited Warner Bros.’ upcoming superhero flick Green Lantern as one of the “losers” of Comic-Con, with the film’s lack of footage bested by superhero counterparts from Marvel, namely Thor and Captain America. And while that is an interesting sentiment, and one that I’m sure doesn’t come only from Faraci, I’m still holding onto the excitement around Green Lantern. Call it a product of my Comic-Con absence, but I will continue to hold this film as one of my most anticipated 2011 releases. Mainly because it is well cast, has been placed in the hands of a more than capable director, and the script reads like something balanced with the pace of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man and the visual promise of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. And that’s one hell of a one-two punch.
I’m still excited. And you should be, as well. Especially when you click through the jump and find a few lovely new teaser posters, which were released today by Warner Bros.
But first, there is a wonderful moment from Comic-Con that is worth sharing. We haven’t reported on the Green Lantern panel yet because, well, our team had a little bit of Hall H trouble that morning. But there was an intrepid attendee who caught this magical moment on video. A young fan asks Ryan Reynolds to recite the Green Lantern’s Oath. And with power ring on, Reynolds obliges. It’s adorable:
And now, on to the posters. These feature Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, Mark Strong as Sinestro and Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond. Click the page numbers below to see each poster, or click VIEW ALL to see them all at once.
