Here’s some quick movie news. From what we’ve read and seen online, all of us assumed that Green Lantern’s villain/s would be Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard) or/and Siniestro (Mark Strong). Apparently that’s not all. ComicBookMovie.com has somehow managed to get a hold of the film’s official synopsis. This is what it states:
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 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 lies in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human evert selected: Hal Jordan. Hal is a gifted and cocky 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.
I’m one of the many of who assumed that Hammond or/and Siniestro would play villains in this movie. This news takes me by surprise. I don’t know how they are going to work this into the story. Somehow it feels to me like this character is reminicent of Superman 3’s Bizarro and Spiderman 3’s parasitic Venom. My knowledge regarding this particular character is way low; so if any of you out there does know, please elaborate for us.
The Green Lantern is scheduled for a June 17, 2011 release. Can’t wait!
