Green Lantern SDCC footage description July 26th, 2010

A teaser trailer was shown at the open­ing of the Green Lantern SDCC panel, most of us were not lucky enough to be there and see Ryan Reynolds in action. And whilst the WB aren’t likely to release this video any time soon, a descrip­tion is the best we can hope for.

From SHH:

It’s essen­tially a teaser which starts off with a glow­ing green ball and an alien voiceover that says:

“Wel­come inhab­i­tants of sec­tor 2814. The Guardians have cho­sen you as can­di­dates for enlist­ment but before you can be recruited, you must be tested. The light you see before you is con­trolled by your will. Focus on the light. If you will it, it will be. Now, focus.”

That ball of green light con­tin­ues to pulse and get larger and larger before it blasts the screen with a wave of green light.

We then hear Reynolds’ voiceover say­ing the Green Lantern oath and a quick mon­tage of footage cut together that went by very fast, includ­ing a close-up of Reynolds as Hal Jor­dan, his hand hold­ing the ring, we see him in street clothes being pulled upwards and see a later scene in which he’s tak­ing on crim­i­nals by using the ring to form a giant fist that throws a round­house punch knock­ing out a bunch of guys. We get a very brief glimpse of Hec­tor Ham­mond and Tomar Re. (We pre­sume that the voiceover was Abin Sur, but we’re not sure.)

After the oath is done, we hear the orig­i­nal alien voiceover say­ing, “The choice has been made.”

The light we saw ear­lier starts form­ing into the GL emblem and then we see the logo is “Await Fur­ther Con­tact Sum­mer 2011.” (Hope­fully, they’ll show it again so we can catch more since it went by very fast.)
