Green Lantern!!

As some of you may know there is a Green Lantern Movie coming out. It's gonna be awesome. So I thought I would take this time to help everyone get amped for the movie.

First off lets start with detail. For those who don't know the Green Lantern Corp are basicly the police force of the Universe. Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring and power lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. So its pretty big stuff.

Hal Jordan is the first human Green Lantern (minus Alan Scott who was the first Green Lanern in the Golden Age) Hal was given the power ring and battery (lantern) by a dying alien named Abin Sur, whose spaceship crashed on Earth. Abin Sur used his ring to seek out an individual who was "utterly honest and born without fear" to take his place as Green Lantern. Now in the movie it looks like Hal Jordan finds Abin Sur and is given the ring on the spot.

After that I am not sure how true to the comics they will stay.

The villian in the movie is Hector Hammond Hammond is a petty criminal on the run from the law when he discovers the fragments of a strange meteor in the woods Observing that radiation from the meteor has caused the nearby plants to evolve rapidly. The radiation causes their intellects to evolve, but also has the side effect of sapping their wills. Or so says the comics. If this will translate to the movie is unknown.

Hal Jordan will be played by Ryan Reynolds. Who is a solid actor in my book.

Hector Hammond will be played by Peter Sarsgaard. Who is also a very solid Actor.

I am so excited!
