Green Lantern Trailer Starring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively 2010-11-16 20:18:29

Green Lantern Trailer: Ryan Reynolds Is an Unlikely Superhero

We've been waiting forever to see Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern (the EW cover doesn't count) and the trailer gives us a nice reward: before he dons the green suit, he's practically naked. After you see the superhero body, we get a taste of Green Lantern(AKA Hal Jordan)'s backstory: he's a test pilot, he's a ladies' man, and he's got a bossy copilot (courtesy of a brunette Blake Lively). He quips that when he's flying, "anything's possible" — and that's when the limits of possibility are stretched beyond his imagination.

A dying alien entrusts a magic ring to Hal, instilling the responsibility of defending a universe he never knew existed. Though Hal is skeptical about his ability to be a superhero, his powers are as undeniable as Peter Sarsgaard's delightfully hideous villain look. The movie promises pure fantastical fun, and there's no muting the comic book origins in this one. It only took two views to get me officially pumped, so watch for yourself after the jump.

I am so excited for this! I love comic book movies, and I love Ryan Reynolds in this role. It looks really well done and, even though I hate Blake Lively as an actress and am totally disgusted with her being cast, I will give her this - she brings a good level of camp to the role hahaha...
