Injustice: Gods Among Us has released a last-minute trailer for Green Lantern, showing us that he’s still cool in spite of the Ryan Reynolds film.
Up to this point, the Green Lantern hasn’t gotten much fanfare with Injustice: Gods Among Us. He was introduced without much ceremony when he appeared on the box art for the upcoming DC Comics console game.
In the trailer, we are treated to Hal Jordan fighting a mirror-match version of himself wearing a Sinestro Corp ring giving him the power of fear instead of will. Seeing as how it’s happened in the comics, the “yellow” Lantern will fit right in with “Red Son” Superman and zombie Batman.
The Injustice: Gods Among Us trailer begins with three Green Lantern warriors approaching some pillars atop which the Elders perch. The Green Lantern narrates, “Out of all the beings in this galaxy, I was chosen. I was special.” We see him, Wonder Woman and the Green Arrow turn simultaneously before the Green Lantern walks to the right with his ring hand up ready for battle. He flies straight up from what appears to be a park filled with massive stone bugs.
Someone, says, “Something’s not right. He’s Hal Jordan … yet…” That someone turns out to be a woman standing next to the Green Lantern as he lies on a table with a green aura around him. She is talking to some African-American in a high-tech suit.
We then see Green Lantern swinging what appears to be a green jet engine into Solomon Grunday. Then the Green Lantern is fighting the Joker, as well as others including Deathstroke. He narrates, “Hope says that no evil shall escape my sight.” He’s holding Lex Luthor to the floor with his ring in the midst of some rope before seeming to give Wonder Woman a hand as a copy of him approaches wearing the yellow ring. “So what happens when that evil is me?”
The rest of the trailer is above.
