The official Green Lantern website is now live!
There’s not much to see on the site, other than some green special effects, the Green Lantern logo, and the date, 2011 at the bottom. While some people may think, so what, the important thing is that now that the site is live, content will slowly appear on it.
The film, directed by Martin Campbell, stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan (AKA Green Lantern), Blake Lively (as Jordan’s love interest, Carol Ferris), Peter Sarsgaard (as Hector Hammond, a mad scientist who gains telekenetic and telepathic powers), and Mark Strong (as Sinestro, Jordan’s lantern mentor, but who hides a dark secret).
According to ComicBookMovie.com, the plot of the movie is:
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.
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), 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.
