Eager Green Lantern fans have been clamoring for a look at Ryan Reynolds’ costume for months now (as we all know, a comic book movie lives and dies by its costume design). However, despite some leaked set pics, there still has not been a reveal up until now because there actually is no physical costume to see — the green suit is being created entirely through CGI. The thought of this has worried some people, but Warner Brothers is now attempting to put everyone at ease by slapping the first look at Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern right on the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.
From what I understand, some fans are not happy with the look, however, to my uneducated eyes, it basically looks like Green Lantern. I’m not sure what people were expecting here. Is the mask too narrow? The lines across the chest too futuristic-looking? The shade of green not deep enough? All I know is it looks perfectly fine to me. Granted, the biggest test will be seeing it all in motion, but for now I have no complaints. What do you think, is Hal Jordan’s look going to cut it for you? Green Lantern hits theatres on June 17th, 2011. Check out a bigger version of the image after the jump.
