The movie is based on the DC comics character of the Green Lantern, and is one of WB's most promoted and early buzzed movie promises in 2011. The animation is spectacular and the storylines promises to keep Green Lantern comic book fans happy. 
Original Green Lantern
Comic Book  (Wikipedia)
The first Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was created by writer Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell in All-American Comics #16 (July 1940).
Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring and power lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. 

The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe, and can be very dangerous. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.

After World War II, when sales of superhero comic books generally declined, DC ceased publishing new adventures of Alan Scott as the Green Lantern.
Warner Bros. did the usual blocking off several blocks on Hollywood Blvd. at Mann's Chinese Theater location jamming traffic the whole day, so Green Lantern fans can snap photos of Martin Campbell and Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern cast and other celebrities who show up.
Many of the Green Lantern cast members were on the black and green celebrity carpet last night. The media lines to interview Martin Campbell and other stars
was a quarter mile long in front of Mann's Chinese Theater.
