• “Green Lantern” To Hit Theaters this June 16

    Get set as DC Comics superhero Green Lantern graces the big screen this June 16 with his movie debut.
  • “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).

    DC Comics’ Green Lantern, which chronicles the journey of an ordinary man given extraordinary powers by a mysterious ring (and the lantern that powers it), originally hit newsstands 70 years ago.  The tales of the Green Lantern Corps—intergalactic space cops who combat evil and keep order in the universe—has seen a number of incarnations over the years, but in 1959 (during the “Silver Age” of comics), the property was revitalized with the introduction of Hal Jordan.  

    In the film, Hal (Ryan Reynolds) is a man known more for taking risks than responsibility—trying to live up to the seeming fearlessness of his father, who died flying airplanes when Hal was just a boy.  Now a hotshot test pilot himself, Hal is as careless with the airplanes he flies as he is with the heart of his childhood sweetheart, Carol Ferris (Blake Lively).  But the universe has other plans for him than taking increasingly risky runs in Carol’s father’s planes.
