Green Lantern Power Battery

If you're a hardcore Green Lantern fan, we've got quite a treat for you today. The SpikeTV Scream Awards ceremony was held last night, and the event included a bit of Green Lantern marketing with Ryan Reynolds standing in front of a gigantic version of a Power Battery (see photos here). The Daily BLAM! (via SHH) also got a shot of the actual Power Battery from the Green Lantern universe that shows up and will be used in the movie and it's a big reveal for those who already know what exactly this is. Now if you don't know what it is, we'll explain beneath the photo. But for everyone else, take a better look at this glowing green prop piece.

Green Lantern Power Battery

This right here is the actual, physical "lantern" object that makes up the Green Lantern name. In comic book mythology, this "lantern" stores smaller amounts of the cosmic energy that can recharge the Power Ring that Hal Jordan (Reynolds) wears and gives him power to fight enemies and be a superhero. The cosmic energy comes mainly from the planet Oa, where the Central Power Battery is located. That may seem confusing, but you'll definitely understand everything by the time Green Lantern hits theaters on June 17th next summer. We know the first trailer is set to debut in front of Harry Potter 7 this November, so stay tuned for updates!

    Is this CGI also? Looks great
  • LINKFX
    Looks pretty damn cool. Although calling it a lantern might be more appropriate, no? I'm no GL supernerd, i just thought that's what they were called...But honestly i could be totally wrong i mean you can't call everything in Green Lantern a Lantern, right? They better sell this as a night light!
  • LINKFX
    Hahaha yep, I'm wrong it is a Power Battery, what a lame name.
  • Maybe it's just me but I'm not really digging the whole "bio/organic" look everything in the movie has right now. It's giving me flashbacks to the Spawn movie. I dunno, I guess I just thought that an advanced civilization like the Oans would have cleaner lines and more of a high-tech look. I get that they're aliens and all, but do they really have to bash the audience over the head with it?
  • Hattori Hanzo
    Ooooohhh, ahhhhh; a Power Battery! This Green Lantern shit is getting lamer by the day ...
  • Voice of Reason
    Very....Matrix-y.....hurm
  • jay
    Nice.. but I don't think I totally get it's purpose.. even after reading the description. So Reynolds will be carrying this thing around with him throughout the movie?
  • NoleLantern
    He doesn't carry the lantern around with him. He charges his ring from it, and he has 24 hours of power till the next charge, or least that's the way it is in the comics.
  • Sinestro
    NoelLantern said: He charges his ring from it, and he has 24 hours of power till the next charge. Thanks for the info pal; now I'll simply wait until the 24th hour and the beat the living snot out of him and his little buddy Kato too! Heh, heh, heh!
  • Hattori Hanzo
    LMAO at Sinestro's comment!
  • The Green Lantern
    To NoelLantern: Thanks alot for tipping off Sinestro asshole! Sic him Toto, er, I mean Kato!

    #12 : very funny what about the colour yellow to add to it! lolll! it looks okay...how about a trailer now...anyone agrees? Buried is out and gone, so let's enjoy this now!
  • LINKFX
    Yellow is not Green Lantern, fear is his weakness, yellow is the energy color of fear. a Green lantern can train to overcome this.
  • LINKFX
    Yellow is not Green Lantern('s weakness)
  • Xerxex
    trailer please.
  • JeepFu
    They couldn't make it look like it does in the comic? Doesn't even look like a lantern...
  • Darren
    What does it mean?
  • Ajax
    What the hell is this? It looks horible.
  • Jericho
    ooooh alien lightbulb
  • yawn
    A power battery is something you pick up in a videogame.
  • dreckent
    This really gives you a sense of the kinds of textures they are going for and the feel the special effects will have on the movie. This is the first time i like what they are doing and i get the "big special effects movie" thing ive heard so much about... Awesome...
  • tivdatsun
    But how good is that lantern for actually seeing at night?
  • DaftPUNKFAN
    "power battery" really o_0?? i thought it was just called the lantern or something like 😛
  • Looks like a wristwatch, why didn't they make it look like the drawing pictured beside it? Jings.
  • I am
    You guys don't know anything...Yellow IS a weakness! Anyway trailer please!
  • Bob
    @I am: More precisely, yellow WAS Green Lantern's weakness. It used to be that his beams bounced off of anything colored yellow. That was done away with about 15 years ago.
  • rahjneesh
    geez....I certainly hope he isnt going to stand in front of the battery and actually recite that lame ass mumbo jumbo from the comic books in order for the ring to charge up...
  • Nuika Omitsu
    I know you cannot do alot with hero movies without CG but plz surprise me by not making it as CG as it is already looking...it can be done
  • AJ DANNEHL
    IS THER GONNA BE TOYS OF GREEN LANTERN LANTERNS? YES OR NO.
