The official plot synopsis for Green Lantern was (likely) revealed last week, and it’s very possible that today brings our first look at the design of the logo, costume, and ring for the summer 2011 Warner Bros. superhero tentpole. The images arrive in advance of Licensing International Expo, which is sure to provide a wealth of merchandise pics next week.
Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal) stars as the titular hero in Green Lantern with a supporting cast of Blake Lively (Gossip Girl), Peter Sarsgaard (An Education), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Angela Bassett (Akeelah & the Bee), and Tim Robbins (Mystic River). Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) is directing from a script by Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, Marc Guggenheim, and Michael Goldenberg. Hit the jump to peruse the images.
Here’s the synopsis:
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 (Blake Lively), 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.
Green Lantern is slated for a 3D release on June 17, 2011. Here is the artwork via ComicBookMovie.com:
