Director Martin (who helmed a few James Bond besides the upcoming Edge of Darkness movie) will be directing the upcoming live-action Green Lantern movie set to star Ryan Reynolds. He talked to Collider (here) about his take on the Green Lantern:
I can but agree with martin Campbell’s assessment. Hal Jordan is indeed a quite optimistic Green Lantern, almost cheeerful compared to John Stewart, the second human to become a Green Lantern (but that’s for an other movie, I hope!).
Plot of the Green Lantern:
“A test pilot is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.”
The movie Green Lantern will be released on June 17, 2011.
