Default Green Lantern Enemy in move??

Okay I don't know if you guys have seen the new Green Lantern Trailer but what the hell is that yellow thing that wounds Abin Sir?
I thought Atrocitus wounded Abin sur? And whatever that is confused me...

If anyone knows let me know.

That's crazy, I didn't think Krona would make an appearance in a GL movie since he was new.

But now it makes no sense because
1. Parallax is supposed to be trapped in the Power battery when Hal becomes a Green Lantern.
2. Abin sur is suppose to get attacked by Atrocitus in his ship taking him to the Sciencells.

But I have been reading the FlashPoint upcoming issues and I guess Abin Sur Never died???! I guess that's who the black shadow is on the GL covers

Yeah you're right Krona is not new, but he's an old character why bring him back now in the origin of Green Lantern?

I don't believe not understanding something that goes on in a child's comic book makes me a child? haha

I go to school so I don't really have the time to read about everything that happened to Green Lantern before i was born.

If anything I am in the right place... Adulthood.

1.: Both of those elements weren't part of the original Green Lantern story. Both were retroactively added to the mythos decades after those stories originally happened, leading to the occasional contradiction.
2.: It's hard to find movie adaptations of comic books that follow the comic books by the letter. Most of them take liberties with the material, especially when it comes to long-running superhero books and tying the villain to the hero's origin. In Tim Burton's first Batman movie, it was the Joker that killed Batman's parents. In the Nolanverse, Ra's Al Ghul trained Bruce Wayne in the pre-Batman days. In Daredevil, it was the Kingpin that killed Matt Murdock's father. Don't be surprised if in the next Superman movie, it was Brainiac that blew up Krypton.

Superman The Animated Series: Sinestro

The New Frontier: (book and Movie) The Yellow Energy shockwave from exploding Nukes above Earth's atmosphere)

Secret Origin: Atrocitus of The Five Inversions

First Flight: Kooch (a Squid like character created for the story)

This upcoming Film: Krona/Parallax

Well it should be pointed out that this movie originally had Legion from the Emerald Dawn story as the main villain. But that was altered as the script progressed and more of Geoff Johns work was integrated into the project. Krona is also a newer addition as well.

Somewhere here on the board is a link to that original first draft script that was leaked a couple of years ago. I have read it and I was impressed. They even included Alan Scott in that version as the secret government agent who ends up working with Hal. I think he has been replaced in the actual movie by Amanda Waller.
