"Green Lantern" (movie), starring Ryan Reynolds, is based on The Green Lantern comics, one of the oldest known superheroes; the first series featuring the character came out in the 1940s. 

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, there is an elite, powerful force that has existed for centuries; protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. Warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him the ability to create anything his mind can imagine. But with a terrifying new enemy called Parallax threatening to destroy the balance of the universe, the fate of the Earth lies in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: the cocksure Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds.

Hal is a gifted and arrogant test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans. But Hal's humanity is one weapon no member of the Corps has ever had, and if, with willpower, determination, and the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears.

Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen, "Green Lantern" stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role. The film is directed by Martin Campbell from a screenplay by Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg. The script is based on characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. The film also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, and Angela Bassett.
