When we first heard Ryan Reynolds would be wearing a computer-generated costume in Green Lantern rather than something real, we worried the end result could be laughable. But now that Warner Bros. has released three new pics of Reynolds in the CG super suit, we can see just how wrong we were.
Image of the Day: The awesome ABCs of comics' great superheroes
If you were as blown away as we were by the Green Lantern clip that was unveiled at Wondercon last weekend, wait'll you see how Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively reacted to the finished footage.
If you were already kicking yourself for not making it to San Francisco for Wondercon this weekend, this ought to make you feel even worse about it— a ton of awesome new Green Lantern footage was screened there that more than makes up for that underwhelming trailer.
Any casual observer of this summer's superhero-movie battle royale can see that Marvel's trifecta—Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor and X-Men: First Class—is pulling far ahead of DC's sole entry, Green Lantern. And that's mostly due to the fact that we've seen so little of GL ... and what we saw wasn't so great.
For a new edition of DC's Green Lantern: Secret Origin hardcover graphic novel, Reynolds wrote an introduction that reveals what drew him to the character in the first place, the things that make Hal Jordan more than just a dude who finds a sweet fashion accessory.
As comics fans know and the rest of the world will find out when Green Lantern hits theaters on June 17, Hal Jordan is just one of many ring bearers out there protecting the universe as part of the Green Lantern Corps. Now two new posters are giving us a good look at some of those non-Terran guardians.
With all the talk this week about Nathan Fillion somehow coming up with $300 million to buy the rights to Firefly, we forgot all about the last Fillion story that excited us—the fact that he'd been cast as Green Lantern.
Come this May, superheroes are going to be stepping all over each other on the big screen as Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America: The First Avenger, and X-Men: First Class all release in the brief span of three months. We've all seen their trailers and movie posters and while some are more successful than others, let's face it—so far none have generated the kind of heat that comes with a new installment of The Dark Knight or even Iron Man movie.
Nathan Fillion has been cast as the next Green Lantern ... wait, what?
