Warner Bros. has debuted a new TV spot and poster featuring Abin Sur played by actor Temuera Morrison for the highly-anticipated summer adventure Green Lantern.
Synopsis of the film:
“Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).
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.”
The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins, Jay O. Sanders, Taika Waititi, Jon Tenney, Geoffrey Rush and Michael Clarke Duncan.
Warner Bros is bringing Green Lantern to theaters in 3D everywhere on June 17th, 2011.
Abin Sur character info:
Home World: Ungara
Voiced by Temuera Morrison in the movie, the magenta-headed hero Abin Sur was a history professor before being tapped to become a Lantern back in the (earth decade) 1860s.
He has a long legacy of service, including recruiting Hal Jordan after crash-landing on earth. Oddly enough, Clark Kent was the first candidate found by Abin Sur’s ring, but since he wasn’t native to Earth, Hal got the gig.
