'Green Lantern': The trailer before the trailer before the trailer...

The trailer for the much anticipated "Green Lantern" movie is set to debut in theaters with the November 19 premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," but Entertainment Tonight is giving fans a sneak peek tomorrow night.

In a 30-second snippet of that teaser, which can be seen on MTV Online, Ryan Reynolds is seen wowing a friend – as well as himself - as he transforms from a casual clothes-wearing Hal Jordan into the emerald-appareled Green Lantern. The buff crime fighter is also seen flying, battling bad guys, using his power ring, and interacting with love interest Carol Ferris (Blake Lively).

While getting in shape wasn't a problem for Reynolds – who previously played a superhero in 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" - simulating flight by being hurled on a wire at up to 60 feet per second proved more challenging.

“The first time you do it, you’re seriously considering an adult diaper,” Reynolds, 34, told Entertainment Weekly.

"Green Lantern" is set to arrive in theaters on June 17, 2011.

    How did a discussion about the conceptually superior character Green Lantern get bogged down with all this pointless babble about an overused character like Batman? Enough already!How many times will we have to sit through endless redoos of the origin of Batman? This is exactly what could potentially go wrong with the motion picture Green Lantern.We can only hope that there is a way to bring the general audience up to speed and still give the core fans something new for a change.I don’t see it working but anything is better than another movie about the Holy Trinity B/S and WW.Or worse yet another Vaudeville/Kabuki Manga Theater Wolverine mess.

    I think it would have been better if the green lantern was black because i'm pretty sure the black green lantern was the higest rated comic book series...i will give this one a chance...it could b a surprise...after all DC does have some catching up to do with marvel...besides the two batmans which are among the best movies i have ever seen...they have not done much else...when is the next superman movie coming?
