A new batch of Green Lantern character posters takes an oath

07.26.2010

It's easy for DC to get overshadowed by Marvel's big AVENGERS party at Comic-Con this year with no real Superman or Batman news to speak of. A JLA movie has been long dead, and likely will be for some time, but GREEN LANTERN stands as one of the building blocks toward that endgame, and had some goodies of its own to debut at Con this year. 

One that we can now share with you below is this series of character posters straight from Warner Bros. They feature Reynolds, Lively, Strong and Sarsgaard as their respective heroes and villains, each with a piece of Green Lantern oath attached.

No more shots of Reynolds much debated CGI costume, but we get a pretty good look at Strong and Sarsgaard's makeup. Check them out below and click to go to the Pimpin' Poster Palace for hi-res versions!

Can't wait! Yellow is the color of fear in the Green Lantern universe and basically green's opposite.

They look great, not like some typical posters. I like how they each go together side by side for the good and bad.

Cool teaser posters. As for extra tidbit, I think Paul Rudd should be Hank Pym.

Nice, like Sinestro, should have done Lively in a purple sheen, like Hammonds is yellow.

Fan made? Hell no

These things look great. Sinestro looks better than I thought, as well as Blake Lively.

The script was flowing around the net some time ago, and I got a chance to read it -- SUPER AWESOME!!! The FX will knock you out of your seat!! Let's just hope that the studio did not went down the cheap road! Bulk of the movie will be on special effects!! LOL

Hm...

The Strong and Sarsgaard ones look fan made. I kinda dig the scars on Sinestro though. As for the yellow on Sarsgaard's: it may reference Sinestro's eventual path(since it connects to him) or it may imply that Hammond is linked to Parallax in someway.

These are great teaser posters!
This is a good way to establish the logo and the oath is a nice idea too...

Looks good

I'm sick of the comic book movie craze and have lost interest in all Avengers-related Marvel offerings (Cap America, Thor, etc.) simply because I don't think the studio really knows what it's doing (evidence: the Ed Norton fiasco) and is too interested in pushing their products really quickly without concerns for quality (evidence: threatening to fire Jon Favreau when he asked for more time to work on the Iron Man 2 script with Theoreux, which in retrospect was time they should have given him

Anyway, this film actually looks pretty solid - good cast, good director. I'm not exactly excited for it because I'm not a big comic book guy, but between this and Thor I know which one I'd pay to see.

at comic con, Reynolds let it slip that we would see Parallax in the film. Hammond's side turning yellow might be a hint as to how we might see him.

... and yellow being the "kryptonite" to Green Lantern... at least that was how it was written in the early days of the character.

slimbo... that "nursery rhyme" is part of the Green Lantern Oath, it is pretty classic and quite important to the mythology of the character.

The posters are pretty nice, cant wait to see some footage.

oh ok, because it sounds really gay. Maybe since Robin is so important to the Batman mythology, you should support his inclusion in the new batman movie.

or Superman can yell "Up, Up, and Away!" everytime he flies in the next Superman movie.

Look, all I'm saying is that some stuff from the comics was best used for comics so little kids would like it. That doesnt mean it needs to be in modern day big screen adaptations. A lot of these are movies can be for adults and people who dont relate boners to comics. Kiddie crap like this is why some of these movies don't work with audiences - or people who matured from the age of 12.

And this oath

And this oath sounds like something only virgins would recite!

Er. Actually. Yeah. Yeah I would like to see Nolan work Robin into the 3rd Batman movie and it could be done without being corny or kiddie. Just read Loeb's Dark Victory (sequel to the Long Halloween.)

And for the matter of it - I don't see why "Up, Up, and Away" would be so wrong if he said it once; It's not necessary every time and it's not as if the Green Lantern oath will be rattled off more than a time or two tops throughout the flick.

It would be like Captain America not yelling out

It would be like Captain America not yelling out "Avengers Assemble" or Hulk saying "Hulk Smash." They are iconic phrases. Not sure why that would be labeled uber-fanboy/kiddie.

I don't know anything about Green Latern, but I like the design, they offer a good tease. Although they all say 2/11, did the release get bumped up from June to Feb?

The logo between the 2 and 11 is suppose to represent a 0 so it should be read as 2011

Fan-made quality...

These all have a fan made quality to them... maybe they're still finding their groove and rushed these out (along with that EW cover and stills)... so I'll ignore this for now and hope for the best.

Great Posters!

Lovin' the posters and I love how all of them have a part of The Green Lantern Oath on them. I really think this movie is going to kick ass I think this is one of the better comic book movies where everyone was casted perfectly. Mark Strong was amazing in Sherlock Holmes and can't wait to see how he is in this movie. Bring on a trailer already!
