First Look: Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern
Thanks to Geoff Johns for bringing this to my attention. Entertainment Weekly has Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan on the cover of the latest issue.
With San Diego Comic-Con a week away, everyone is getting the big guns out. This is the first time we're seeing an image of Reynolds as Green Lantern that isn't a fan-made image.
Entertainment Weekly will have a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Green Lantern and there's bound to be even more shown at Comic-Con.
I think we can officially start getting excited over this (if you haven't already started). Green Lantern is set to hit theaters on June 17, 2011.
EDIT: New pictures have surfaced!!
== TEASER ==
Will have to see it in action but clearly they are going for something different than the comic books. It is ashame compared to what Marvel is doing with their costume design being directly reflected based on the comics. I wouldn't be surprised if DC's Green Lantern will get a costume that is similar.
It looks better than I thought it would. I have more faith in the movie now.
Eveyrone is complaining, but it looks like his comic book costume with energy running through it. You can also see the energy running through his veins! Good job on the domino mask. It doesn't look cheesy. The symbol is actually glowing! This seems to be the costume that is the most faithful to the source material so far. I'm guessing he'll look different powered down.
" I wouldn't be surprised if DC's Green Lantern will get a costume that is similar. "I would, though, seeing as how Hal pretty much wears the default GLC uniform, and I can't think of a plausible reason for the Guardians to suddenly revamp that. On the other hand, you never know about Kyle Rayner...
Looks like bad photoshop work. Oh, don't get me wrong, I know it's a real shot, but I'm saying it's crap. It looks like someone took a shot of GL in a video game and pasted Ryan Reynold's face over it. Really not working for me. I don't see why they didn't just do, you know, a costume costume.

"I sort of agree. It looks more like someone photoshopped his head on a CG body. Again, will have to wait for a trailer or something in motion so we can see why they did the suit this way. Was hoping for white gloves too :(
" @Kurrent: Yeah but Christian Bale's batman didn't have a circle around the bat on his chest either, it's a movie, things change about costumes :p "Current and first Batman didn't have the circle :) That was only introduced because of the lame 60's TV show if memory serves :)
" Lame... looks like a Green Lantern Pajama. "
Dude, you're wearin' some tight pyjama's :P
" OMG!!!!! I cant stand dc but there moviesare ssooooo much better then marvels!!!! I cant wait to see the movie!!!! why cant marvel get there act togather and make movies like dc : ( "
Erm...DC's had, what. two movies based on a major character in recent years?
Maybe Marvel's seem bad becasue they've put a lot out and some weren't so great.
I mean if you go by a percentage DC's probably doin' better.
