Updated: It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Ryan Reynolds in the full GREEN LANTERN costume!
Al Gore has really started something. Ever since AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH hit theaters across the U.S., the "green" movement has exploded into a serious cultural phenomenon. Now, the treehuggers of the world have even acquired their own superhero. THE GREEN LANTERN is about a man who uses a lantern, but instead of the traditional whale-blubber wick you and I are used to, this man uses recycled materials. As a result of his "green" efforts, the man is awarded super-human powers.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at the CGI costume Ryan Reynolds will be wearing in THE GREEN LANTERN. Check out the full picture after the break.
Wait a minute. This isn't THE "GREEN" LANTERN, this is just that dumb DC superhero who uses green light to bend space and fight enemies! Bummer!
We also get an official synopsis of the film to accompany this first look: "Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot who becomes a ring-wearing intergalactic superhero in this massive sci-fi epic from director Martin Campbell (CASINO ROYALE)." I guess that's alright, too.
Expect to hear more about THE GREEN LANTERN at this year's Comic-Con. THE GREEN LANTERN is scheduled to release in summer of 2011.
What are your thoughts? Is this Green Lantern suit too modern? Does Ryan Reynolds make a good Hal Jordan? Did they go with the full CGI costume to avoid super hero camel-toe? Leave your thoughts below!
