"Sinestro" Himself Speaks!
Mark Strong Talks About Playing This Iconic Character!
In a recent chat with USA, Mark Strong took to time to talk about his role in the upcoming blockbuster "Green Lantern". Just in case you live under a rock, Strong will be playing Sinestro. He begins as the mentor for Hal Jordan/Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds) and slowly heads to the villain side. Of his character, Strong said:

"For anybody who's familiar with the Green Lantern and the origin story, the film closely follows the early comics. 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. He 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."

I don't know about you, but that's pretty exciting to me! It sounds like they are going to stay pretty true to his comic book origin! Mark Strong went on to say that even Sinestro's look will be close to character's early appearances. From what we know so far, that includes a little thin mustache and the widow's peak. Strong said that he has also been fitted for Sinestro contact lenses, and will start shooting his scenes in New Orleans in June.

Mark Strong was not my personal favorite choice for Sinestro, but he with movies like Robin Hood and Sherlock Holmes he is certainly no stranger to playing the villain, and I think he will do a great job. I get more and more excited for this movie all the time!
