Here is some promo artwork of the Guardians, a group almost as old as the universe and the leaders of the Green Lantern Corps. They play a pivotal role in Green Lantern scheduled to hit 2D and 3D theaters June 17th, 2011.
The film is directed by Martin Campbell and stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett.
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
The Guardians are an immortal race as ancient as life itself, the benevolent Guardians of the Universe desire a peaceful, orderly existence for all living beings, as well the pursuit of their own enigmatic agendas. They never allow emotions to infect their thoughts and actions. The Guardians created the Green Lantern Corps, an interstellar police force that now patrols the universe's 3600 space sectors.(via ComicVine).
