DC Comics writer and Chief Creative Office Geoff Johns announced today at New York Comic-Con [via thegreenlanterncorps.com] that the first trailer for Green Lantern will be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Interestingly, Green Lantern is in 3D and would likely have a 3D trailer were it attached to a 3D movie. However, as we just reported, Warner Bros. has decided to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I in 2D only. I’m curious to see if Warner Bros. might not wait a month and release their Green Lantern trailer with their only remaining 3D film this year, Yogi Bear.
For the film’s official synopsis, hit the jump. Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, and Mark Strong. It’s set to open June 17, 2011. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 opens November 19th.
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 (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.
