Ryan Reynolds suits up for full “Green Lantern” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures are about to throw the summer-blockbuster gauntlet down when they unleash “Thor” into theaters nationwide.

But another comic book property from a rival studio that also connects our human realm with a powerful, intergalactic race is making sure that “Thor” doesn’t steal everybody’s thunder.

Warner Bros. has unveiled the longest (and presumably final) “Green Lantern” trailer. It is up on Yahoo Movies, where it can be viewed in HD.

Well-timed, Warner, as you know most movie sites are ramping up “Thor” coverage. Now we’re all forced to divert attention from Marvel to D.C., temporarily, to comment on the size and scope of Martin Campbell’s effects-laden superhero thriller.

Ryan Reynolds continues to look like the right choice for Green Lantern, while we get a better look at Peter Sarsgaard’s villainous Hector Hammond and the predicament he finds himself in. The film co-stars Blake Lively, Angela Bassett and Tim Robbins, as well as the voices of Geoffrey Rush and Michael Clarke Duncan.

“Green Lantern” will be in theaters on June 17.
