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.

    The only good casting decision the producers of this movie has made.

    Love Ryan Reynolds but not for Hal Jordan and Blake Lively is way too young to be his love interest.

    Yeah, good casting decision.

    Shes only 3 years younger than his real life wife Scarlett Johansson, besides a lot of young women date much much older men.

    After the news about Nolan taking such a creative role at DC, I'm glad to here this about Johns. Johns is a great guy for getting these characters to the screen. Here's some fingers crossed for Martian Manhunter.

    Am a huge fan of Mark Strong & GL’s long-time arch enemy Sinestro so i’m more than excited about the news.
    I’m guessing he’ll be taking a smaller role in the first GL movie though,as the main villain is Hector Hammond.My guess is,Sinestro will be the big bad of the GL sequel & possibly Parallax in the third,…depending on how successful box office-wise the first film is.

    Still would’ve preferred Sam Worthington as Hal Jordan but i reckon Ryan Reynolds will do a good job.
