First Look at Parallax from ‘Green Lantern’ Film?
A forthcoming issue of Green Lantern will contain our first real look at Parrallax as the fear entity will appear in next year's Green Lantern live-action film. The image comes courtesy of the Daily Blam, although its veracity has yet to be determined.
As we reported in May, the first of what's expected to be a series of Green Lantern films based on the DC Comics superhero will feature Parallax as the big baddie, rather than wayward Green Lantern Sinestro (Mark Strong), whose turn to full-on villain won't be depicted in this inaugural installment.

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.
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.
The Daily Blam's image of Parallax sort of jibes with the DC Direct action figure teaser previously released in October, although only in silhouette. The toy will be part of the DCU Green Lantern Classics (wave 2), and will go on sale sometime in 2011.
Starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern is scheduled to open June 17, 2011.
