To celebrate the release of Green Lantern, available on DVD and Blu-ray 7 December 2011, The Reel Bits has received this video from Warner Home Video Australia, showcasing the design and history of the character of Parallax, including interviews with comics legend Geoff Johns and other production designers. US viewers may have seen this already, so consider this a clip for the rest of the globe.
When test pilot Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds, The Proposal), haunted by the death of his pilot father, pushes his daredevil ways too far, his antics result in the destruction of several fighter jets and the loss of a major contract for the Ferris Aircraft Company. Reviled by his soon-to-be-retrenched co-workers, and disappointing his former flame Carol Ferris (Blake Lively, Gossip Girl), Jordan’s life takes a rapid turn when an alien spacecraft crash-lands and its pilot bestows upon him the power ring of a Green Lantern, imbuing him with the green-tinged power of will and membership to the intergalactic group of space cops known as the Green Lantern Corps.
Green Lantern is on DVD and Blu-ray 7 December 2011 in Australia from Warner.
