Mark Strong is officially playing Sinestro in director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern. We can all say thank you to Geoff Johns for the info, as he revealed the news earlier today via Twitter:
Back from an amazing trip to Green Lantern town a.k.a. New Orleans!! Ryan IS Hal. And Mark Strong is going to be a brilliant Sinestro.
Kilowog, the Guardians, Oa…all breathtaking. The age of Green Lantern is upon us!!
If you remember, Strong was “in talks” back in the middle of January, so this news isn’t surprising. As a huge fan of Mark Strong, I think it’s perfect casting. With Green Lantern getting ready to start filming, expect a lot more stories about casting and the production soon.
