The first images from the Louisiana set of Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern have been slowly seeping their way onto the web. And while the world will have to wait until post-production to see what Ryan Reynolds looks like as the ring-bearing superhero, we are getting a look at what the film’s villain — or at least one of them — will look like. The image above is Peter Sarsgaard in make-up as Dr. Hector Hammond. It comes to us from Sky Showbiz via Ain’t It Cool. Hammond is the scientist who comes in contact with some alien matter, causing his cranium to swell and his brain to take on some extra thought-for-evil capacity.

As pictures of someone walking out of a make-up trailer go, this one is worth a thousands words. Or at least another hundred. What’s telling about this look at Sarsgaard as Hammond is that the character will be closely tied to that of the comic book. It’s a risky choice, as it also pushes the limits of the audience’s belief that any of this film will exist in a recognizable reality. However, it’s worth noting that Green Lantern doesn’t exist in the world of Iron Man. In so much as most of it takes place in the fantastical far reaches of space. For those uninitiated, think more along the lines of creatures and characters from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. It has to have you thinking that this could work.

Green Lantern is currently shooting in New Orleans. It’s due to hit theaters on June 17, 2011.
