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!

Prior to this film, Peter Sarsgaard played a villain in Empire, Unconditional Love, The Skeleton Key, Flightplan, An Education, Knight and Day.I am fed up with him always playing villains and being typecast. After his excellent performance in Shattered Glass, I am disappointed that this is the direction that his career is going in.

Can you blame the casters? The guy just naturally looks like a bad guy lol.

What's larger? An IMAX screen or Hector Hammond's forehead?

I serious thought is was a joke at first. Looks just like the dark knight poster for the Joker.

lol looks so lame I can't help but laugh. Doesn't look villainous either just kind of like a more paedophilic version of Danny McBride.

Kinda looks like Dr. Forrester from MST3K. But creepier.

Look, Sarsgaard is a great actor, and probably the only part of this movie that gives me any hope. And sure, it might be true to the comics, but do we REALLY need a bad guy who looks like the bassist from a bad 70s cover band? Do we? Because I would be more worried about him raping children in a blacked out van than taking over the world.

Further in the wrong direction of convincing me. Lookin' terrible.

I thought this was a movie?! Well I don't really play computer games anymore sooo pass

I don't understand why people are following this movie just to make such bad comments. If you're not interested (or your level of adolescent hormones are too high), try to avoid the GL posts and your life will be better (or even happier).

I agree I just can't figure out some of the people that comment on this site. Most of the people that make these kinds of comments already have their minds made up about the movie and they already have their bias. It's like people enjoy spending their free time being angry, which is sad.

I hear this argument a lot on this site, and it doesn't hold much water. Why shouldn't we be critical? This is website to discuss movies isn't it? Are opinions other than your own really that hard to handle?. I mean if you are serious about this, then why not reply to these posts explaining why you think they are wrong, instead of passive-aggressively crying about it.
Lebowski on May 12, 2011
My point it's not against criticism. I just say some people (underline here, please) have already made up their minds about a movie that is not even in theaters yet. Not only they haven't seen it, they actually are not interested into. But, life goes on, there's no need to make a drama about this. Let the haters, hate, and the critics, criticize? Better?

First of all who are you to say what my opinion is? To be frank this poster looks like shit. The only reason I clicked on this article was because I thought there would be more info about the movie, which I am looking forward to.Second, I'm not going to explain to anyone why they are "wrong" because technically on this site it's all opinion, and if I were to explain to anyone why I think they should reconsider their opinion it would be a waste of time because people have already formed their biases about this movie good or bad, and the human race is stubborn. I know this because I'm the same way. I'm just saying it's dumb for people that already have a bad opinion of this movie, even without seeing it as Manuel said, to click on an article they aren't interested in because it's a waste of their time.

Agree jesse, this poster looks just like the joker one from The dark knight .... The green lantern is stealing so much from The dark knight. Quite pathetic.
