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.
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.)
