At this pace, Tuesday, May 17th could go down as “Green Lantern Day” here at Collider. We’ve already posted a ton of “On Set” stuff from the film and now I’m throwing another log on the fire in the form of an Abin Sur character poster. In case you were wondering, Abin Sur is best known as Hal Jordan’s predecessor in the Green Lantern Corps. In the film, he is played by New Zealand’s own Temuera Morrison.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins, director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern hits theaters on June 17th.
Here’s the new poster courtesy of the film’s Facebook page [click to enlarge]:
Here’s the official synopsis for Green Lantern:
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, 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.
