Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern Interview Video
Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds made a trip to San Diego on June 16, 2011 to visit the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar to pay tribute to the troops. As a salute to all military dads, Warner Bros and Reynolds hosted an advance screening of the sci-fi action film to a crowd of 1,300ish on the base at the Bob Hope Theater. Warner Bros will also be screening the film at 12 other military bases across the U.S. "in recognition of the “Joining Forces” campaign initiated by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden (www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces)."

After having a little fun at a BBQ with the Marines, Reynolds introduced the film to the packed crowd and thanked them for all their hard work and dedication. And following that introduction, we chatted a bit about Green Lantern, what happened to the ring after filming was finished up, and stunt work:
Green Lantern Plot:
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.
