Well, Hello Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern



?Huh. As you can see, the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly has Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan in his CGI duds for Green Lantern, and… huh. I don’t hate it. I think both the lines covering the outfit and the mask are a bit weird, although it does look very alien, which is cool. I think the eyes are perfect — they really give Hal an otherworldly power, which is presumably what a Green Lantern should have. I think the outfit will look really great in motion, so that’s cool. I think I’m giving this a thumbs up. You? Thanks to ItstheRocketeer for the tip.
