Check This Out: 'Green Lantern' Movie's Power Battery Revealed
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.
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!
