Green Lantern Set Shot Abin Sur's Spaceship?

Posted by WhenYourGodGivesYouLemons On 11:26 PM

Production on the Martin Campbell directed film started several weeks ago and a few shots have hit the web but nothing as interesting as what was sent to CBM. A Mandeville local (the location of the shoot in LA) took the photo and sent it to CBM.

The image is believed to be an alien spaceship and that would lead one to believe that it is the spaceship of Lantern Abin Sur. Sur, who will be played by Temuera Morrison, crash lands on Earth and is integral in the story of Ryan Reynolds Hal Jordan becoming a Green Lantern. No one as yet can confirm whether the ship shown is Sur's but it would be a fairly safe bet.

In another bit of Green Lantern news Mark Strong, who is set to play Sinestro, spoke to USA Weekend about his role in the film. Strong had this to say:
"For anybody who's familiar with the Green Lantern and the origin story, the film closely follows the early comics," Strong said. "Sinestro starts out as Hal Jordan's mentor, slightly suspicious and not sure of him because obviously Hal is the first human being who's made into a Green Lantern. He's certainly very strict and certainly unsure of the wisdom of Hal becoming a Green Lantern."

Strong added that "[Sinestro] is a military guy but isn't immediately bad. It's the kind of person he is that lends himself to becoming bad over the course of the comics being written, but initially he's quite a heroic figure."
Strong doesn't really shed any new light on the character and the direction the film seems to be going, in terms of story. Instead Strong's comments seem to confirm something director Martin Campbell said back in January.  At that time Campbell said fans may be getting ahead of themselves in thinking Sinestro will immediately be the bad guy and they should remember that he was a Lantern who went bad. Campbell didn't exactly say this was the way they were going, he just said fans should keep it in mind.

So there's a few updates on Martin Campbell's epic comic book movie Green Lantern which is in production at the moment.
