Grean Lantern plot revealed

From slashfilm [excerpt], 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.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but New Kirk is playing GL, no?

And what, no Sinestro???

I checked imdb and 1. no, it's Ryan Reynolds (which is fine) and 2. some guy named Mark Strong is billed as Sinestro. Isn't necessarily accurate, but there you are. Sinestro beats Parallax any day (in fact, I'm pretty sure Parallax showed up way after Hal Jordan's time because he is Hal Jordan turned evil).

Oh, Mark Strong is the lead gangster baddie in Kick Ass.

And yes, Parallax is Hal Jordan but it was later revealled that Parallax was an alien parasite who used him as a host, yadda yadda snore. Sinestro better.
