Here's how Warner Bros. describes the movie:

"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 (Ryan Reynolds). 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."

Image Comics has announced a March 30 launch for Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker, a series written by Joe Casey with art by Mike Huddleston.

"This one ain't for the faint of heart," Casey said. "Butcher Baker is a sleazy, mature readers superhero book about a semi-retired 'patriotic' superhero who gets the call for one last adventure. It's everything you want a superhero comic book to be. It's simultaneously iconic and subversive and a whole lot of fun."

"I don't think I've ever had this much fun working on a book before," Huddleston said. "Joe has created a ridiculously ultra-violent and over-sexed world unlike anything anyone has read before. It's intense!"

Here's how Image describes the book:

"Butcher Baker was the preeminent All-American superhero. A long time ago. Now, he's getting laid... a lot. One last mission could return him to glory... if he doesn't screw it up."
