First Look: Mark Strong as Sinestro in GREEN LANTERN

GATW Guest Writer

January 13th, 2011

For those that are too cool for comics, Sinestro (Mark Strong) is Hal Jordan's (Ryan Reynolds) mentor, teaching him how to harness the ring and introduce him to the universe protectors known as the Green Lantern Corps. In the above image, Sinestro is standing at the base of a massive Green Lantern symbol on the Planet Oa - a planet at the center of the galaxy that serves as the Green Lantern Headquarters.

For better or worse, once moviegoers get a look at GREEN LANTERN, they won't be seeing just another typical superhero movie. Aliens from many different planets make up the Green Lantern Corps, so in addition to seeing Reynolds mucking around and smirking on our home world, expect to see a grand universe open up over the course of this film and perhaps its sequels over the next few years.

The first trailer for the film didn't exactly wow us, looking cartoony and downright ridiculous in some sequences. The trailer made the mistake of being too light-hearted, selling Reynolds and a sense of fun rather than slowly introducing the many different characters and scope of the world on display in the comic.

When June 17th rolls around, we'll find out if the filmmakers bit off more than they can chew.
