I’d say this looks decent and certainly better than the downright awful latest photo from Thor, which looks like a bunch of grown men in plastic outfits playing dress up. Of course, that’s essentially what they’re doing, but it isn’t supposed to look like that’s what they’re doing.
Today’s superhero topic of conversation comes from Entertainment Weekly as they’ve debuted their Comic Con issue cover and it’s graced by the presence of Ryan Reynolds from Green Lantern, the latest comic book property being adapted over at Warner Bros. (I’ve added a larger version to the bottom of this post.)
In the film Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot who becomes a ring-wearing intergalactic superhero. You know, sort of like the Schwartz. The official plot synopsis reads as follows:
Now if you are thinking the photo looks like a whole lot of CGI, well, that’s because it is… In fact, the whole outfit is CGI as SlashFilm first revealed back in April and then MTV confirmed it a month later with the pic of Reynolds on set in his motion capture suit, which I’ve added just below the EW cover.
Green Lantern is set to hit theaters in 2D and 3D on June 17 and I’d expect we’ll be hearing more and more about the film over the next few weeks as Comic Con gets rolling.
