'Abin Sur' : Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

Sneak Peek the newest poster, depicting actor Temuera Morrison as 'Abin Sur', supporting director Martin Campbell's upcoming Warners feature "Green Lantern", based on the DC Comics characters.

"...Originally a history professor on the planet 'Ungara', 'Abin Sur' is appointed 'Green Lantern' of 'Space Sector 2814' in the mid 1860's. As a child, he became best friends with 'Ruch Ehr' and later, by association, 'Munni Jah'. The two of them were a couple and Sur secretly loved Munni, but never spoke openly of this.

"Recruited by the Green Lantern known as 'Starkaor', Sur was known to have traveled to Earth on several occasions. In the American Old West, he teamed up with an ancestor of 'Hal Jordan' to battle an alien named 'Traitor'. During World War II, he encountered 'Starman' and 'Bulletman' when the three battled an alien being under the control of 'Mr. Mind'. On a later visit to Earth, his ring's power is neutralized by the foe he was tracking. Discovering the unconscious forms of 'Alan Scott' and 'Jay Garrick', he borrows Scott's slightly different ring, using it against his adversary, taking advantage of the ring's effectiveness against the color yellow.

"While on patrol, Sur is attacked and pursued by the being known as 'Legion' while on its way to planet 'Oa'. Badly injured and with his spaceship seriously damaged, he makes an emergency landing on the nearest habitable planet (Earth). Due to his injuries, Sur was aware that his death was inevitable and he uses his ring to search for a successor. The first possibility was 'Clark Kent'. Since he was not native to Earth, he is not chosen. The next candidates were Hal Jordan and 'Guy Gardner'. As Jordan was closer, the ring chose him as the most suitable replacement right before Sur's death..."

"Green Lantern" opens in 2D and 3D June 17, 2o11.
