Tim Robbins

Back in December of 2008, there was a fun little rumor that Tim Robbins would be showing up in Iron Man 2 as Tony Stark’s father, but sadly that was just not to be.

Now comes word that Robbins has actually been cast in another fatherly comic book movie role; the actor will be playing Senator Hammond in The Green Lantern. The Senator is the father of Peter Sarsgaard‘s Dr. Hector Hammond character, a pathologist who gains psychic and telepathic abilities from a meteor and eventually becomes a villain in the story. The father and son duo have always had issues seeing eye-to-eye.

Robbins also joins Ryan Reynolds who is of course playing the Green Lantern himself, Hal Jordan, and Blake Lively, who is playing Jordan’s boss and eventual love interest, Carol Ferris.

The Green Lantern is set to begin filming soon, and currently has a June 17, 2011 release date set. If that scheduling remains true, the Summer of 2011 will be a Heaven on Earth for comic book fanatics. Joing the DC Comic adventure that Summer will be Marvel’s Thor in May, and The First Avenger: Captain America in July.

Excited yet?
