Hector Hammond Looking Diabolical on New 'Green Lantern' Poster
We've highlighted our hero and several of his alien Green Lantern Corps. counterparts with their own posters and even an epic banner, but now the villain of Green Lantern gets his own poster too. Dr. Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard) the pathologist son of a senator ends up being seen as a disappointment in his father's eyes, but has a newfound confidence and plan to achieve greatness after he becomes infused with psychic powers after coming into contact with something from another world. The poster doesn't show Hammond with the vein-riddled, giant head we've seen in trailers, but it certainly is clear he's the villain.
Green Lantern is directed by veteran New Zealand filmmaker Martin Campbell, of Defenseless, GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro, Vertical Limit, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness previously. The script was written by Greg Berlanti ("Everwood", "Eli Stone"), Michael Goldenberg (Peter Pan, Order of the Phoenix), Michael Green ("Everwood", "Kings") & comic book writer Marc Guggenheim ("FlashForward") and is based on the DC Comics superhero. Warner Bros is bringing Green Lantern to theaters in 3D everywhere on June 17th!
