‘You Gotta Commit To The Corps’: First <i>Green Lantern</i> Clip Debuts

Courtesy of The Blog of Oa fan site comes the first clip from Green Lantern, which premiered last night during Michael Clarke Duncan’s appearance on G4 TV’s Attack of the Show. Given that Duncan was the guest, the clip of course features fan-favorite character Kilowog, gruffly schooling new recruit Hal Jordon (star Ryan Reynolds) in the perils of being a Green Lantern.

The Martin Campbell-directed movie, which opens in 2D and 3D on June 17, also stars Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Temuera Morrison, Tim Robbins, Taika Waititi and Angela Bassett.

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.
