Ryan Reynolds Is "Green Lantern"

Sneak Peek footage from "Green Lantern" starring Ryan Reynolds:

Reynolds plays test pilot 'Hal Jordan' who is given cosmic powers to become Earth's "Green Lantern" superhero, with the ability to transmute 'green energy' into solid mass.

According to "GL" director Martin Campbell, 'alien' comic book characters set to appear in the film will include 'Kilowog',
"Tomar-Re', 'Abin-Sur'and the villain 'Sinestro'.

"...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' (Reynolds).

"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), and 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 them

'Carol', Hal Jordan's girlfriend is played by actress Blake Lively.

"All the main characters are there,"
said Campbell.
"And it's a complex story."

"The origin story of Green Lantern is complex, probably one of the most complex, which makes it a challenge to get it right..."
