The ring chooses Hal Jordan in the trailer for Green Lantern!

When the early footage of GREEN LANTERN slipped online the other day, many fans were distressed about the apparent slapstick tone and seemingly dodgy CG work.

The new trailer appears to have a more serious and respectful approach to the character and his comic origins, and offers a better sense of the galactic scope of the considerable challenges Hal Jordan faces.

The official synopsis: 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.

(NOTE: There's a confirmed Green Lantern/DC Universe "easter egg" in there for eagle-eyed fans.)

Extra Tidbit: Does this seem like it fits the same DC movie "universe" as Nolan's Batman series? Or would we need a whole new relaunch of Dark Knight movies if we're ever going to have a live-action JUSTICE LEAGUE?
