First Official Look at Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern – UPDATED


Here’s your first official look at Ryan Reynolds in costume as the Green Lantern in an upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. It doesn’t quite look like a live shot of Reynolds in costume, and looks more in line with the “Thor” and “Captain America” costume “concept artwork”. Then again, I could be wrong, and this could very well be Reynolds in actual costume with CG enhancements. Remember, the GL costumes have been confirmed as being basically motion-capture suits that will be overlaid with CG in post. Update: Added five images from the movie from the EW article. Scroll beyond the cover to see them.

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan. Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Temuera Morrison, Jenna Craig, Jon Tenney, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett, Taika Cohen, Jeff Wolfe, and directed by Martin Campbell.

    At the very least, they made Carol Ferris a brunette…

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    Agreed. Can't wait to see him. The sets look good too. Wish there was a close up of Temurea Morrison as Abin Sur

  • thestrongestthereis

    I love it, it just always hurts me when I see him not in a Flash suit.

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    I feel ya. I think he'd have been a better Wally than Hal. What about Chris Evans as Flash. If Reynolds can play Deadpool and GL, then he can play Cap and Flash.

  • the GL punisher

    i agree this costume is just too wierd lookin i like how it looks like its made by energy but they could have still given it its original look and still make the coustumes like a military uniform of his mind set

  • GL punisher

    plus the white gloves where always sweet with the costume dont know why it just was

  • Scott

    He looks more like Kyle Raynor than Hal Jordan.

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    It made the rest of the suit pop.

  • Nmatzatc

    I want to know how the writers are going to have Hal Jordan battle Parallax when Hal Jordan is Parallax!!

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    Hal Jordan is not Parallax. Hal was possessed by Parallax. Parallax is the embodiment of Fear, and had been trapped in the central power battery on Oa, and was the cause of the weakness to yellow the rings formerly had. Now only rookies have that weakness.
