Mark Strong, who plays supervillain Sinestro, zaps some Green Lantern knowledge.
The villain is ugly and powerful.
“I play Sinestro, and apparently director Martin Campbell always saw similarities between me and the character. He’s a magenta-skinned alien with a pencil mustache, so I’m not sure how flattering that is. The powers I possess are mind-boggling, though.”
It’s true to the comic book.
“I don’t think the writers stray from the source material. People seem pretty familiar with Batman and other DC Comics heroes, but less so with the Green Lantern. The story is so vast. I hear they’ve already scripted a sequel.”
Ryan Reynolds is awesome. (Yes, we’re serious.)
“Hal Jordan (Reynolds) is someone who has no problem kissing the girl, throwing a punch, and cracking a joke—and, really, that’s Ryan in real life. He’s a great guy. We had some good chats, and he wanted to get his character right.”
Special effects are everywhere.
“The CGI and the artwork for planet Oa are absolutely breathtaking. There are plenty of floating-in-space scenes, but there’s also plenty of boom and bang, because the Lanterns are fighting against the strongest enemy imaginable. Fans won’t be disappointed.”
