  • Sinestro is "an incredibly organized and fearless component of the Green Lantern Corps." He basically guides Hal Jordan through the training process. he and Reynolds have several one-on-one confrontations in the film. "Sinestro tests him because he does not believe a human can handle the Corps," There a sequence where Sinestro and Kilowogg put Jordan through a very rigorous test early on, which leads to a faceoff between Sinestro and Jordan.
  • "People will be — and I am — really delighted at the fact that they've really made sure that he is as he is in the comics. Because there was a whole production run of ideas of ponytails and goatees and all this kind of stuff, [and] I couldn't really understand why they would want to change it, because it's so successful in the comic."
  • "It's born of the look of David Niven, that mustache and that widow's peak, and I think it would be a shame to get rid of it," "I'm delighted, because he looks pretty much exactly like he is in the comic."
  • "Half and half," "You very rightly point out that when we have a scrap together, Sinestro tests Hal initially. And a lot of that, because he's an accomplished Green Lantern, is done through the power of his thought. But there's some physical stuff, too."
  • "I've read somewhere recently they've already started writing the second one," "And I think it does deal with the fall of Sinestro."
  • "a military guy but [he] isn’t immediately bad. [He's] the kind of person [that] lends himself to becoming bad over the course of the comics being written, but initially he’s quite a heroic figure.”
  • "I felt the same way about Green Lantern. I really liked the build up and Geoff Johns' commitment to Green Lantern, and everybody worked on it with the best of intentions. Ya know, nobody makes a movie thinking 'oh god let's just make a terrible movie, let's not really try in this one shall we? Should we not even bother?' Everyone was really committed, and it's a shame it didn't catch fire in the right way."
  • "I loved making Green Lantern and I loved playing Sinestro, but I would be surprised if they made a second one because I’ve heard nothing about it in quite a while now."
  • "A lot of people seemed to be confused by him putting on the ring at the end of the movie. They felt that it came out of nowhere. [Another movie] would have been very exciting because the putting on of the ring and the whole suit turning yellow would have been great fun."
