We’ve talked with Mark Strong about his role as Sinestro in Green Lantern before, but now at least we know a little bit about what he’s going to look like: pink skin, yellow eyes and a thin David Niven mustache, just like in the comics. Strong revealed last week at Comic-Con that he and Ryan Reynolds are currently training for a fight between Sinestro and Reynolds’ Hal Jordan — Hal is brought to Oa, the planetary home of the Green Lantern Corps, and Sinestro tests his worth. “He believes he knows best,” Strong says of his character. “He becomes mentor to the newly minted human Green Lantern, and basically guides him through his first steps. I don’t think of him as a villain or in a bad sense. He’s just an incredibly powerful presence who knows what he believes and he wants to be right.” Check out a short clip below where Strong talks about another sequence in the film featuring some well-known Lanterns (at least to comics fans).
