Movie images from the 2010 Comic-Con continue to flood the web, including four new character posters featuring the main cast members of next year’s Green Lantern.
There were no news bombshells dropped at the Green Lantern Panel at the convention, and these new images – which were released courtesy of Warner Bros. – do not exactly show off a lot. They are definitely stylish enough to qualify as a must-see for Green Lantern fans, though.
First we have the one-sheets for Hal Jordan/Green Lantern himself (Ryan Reynolds) and his gal pal Carol Ferris (Blake Lively). Those that been less than taken with Reynold’s look as the Lantern so far can enjoy the sight of him minus the white, gleaming eyes and sinewy green mask.
Lively looks pretty simple here too, though there has been some speculation that Ferris’ alter-ego Star Sapphire could appear in the movie at some point. The day/night contrast between Reynolds and Lively here is intriguing, so we will see what that entails for their characters’ relationship.
Check out the posters below:
There are also new posters that feature Mark Strong as the Lantern’s mentor, Sinestro and Peter Sarsgaard as the evil psychic Hector Hammond. Despite his tendency to take on outright villainous roles – and Sinestro’s fiery-faced appearance – Strong’s take on the character is expected to be more nuanced than that.
It looks like Sarsgaard as Hammond is not yet quite as cranially-enhanced here as he was in the previous photo we saw of the villain. Props to the guy for putting up with that prosthetic and makeup job – just because he is starring in a comic book movie doesn’t mean the task is any less strenuous.
Have a look at these two below:
The Green Lantern movie is just under a year away from release and it is shaping up to be a good time. The positive buzz that I’ve heard about the footage shown at Comic-Con only makes me all the more excited to see an actual trailer, hopefully sometime sooner than later.
Green Lantern will hit theaters in the U.S. on June 17th, 2011.
