New Images of Ryan Reynolds in Full GREEN LANTERN Costume

     April 12, 2011


Warner Bros. has released three new images of Ryan Reynolds in his full Green Lantern costume.  Since the suit is entirely CGI and was made that way so it could pulsate, glow, and do other kinds of neat visual effects, still images don’t really do it justice.  I’m more interested in seeing how it’s represented on screen and in motion.

Hit the jump to check out the costume shots.  The film also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, and Mark Strong.  Green Lantern opens in 3D on June 17th.  Click here for all of our coverage on the flick.

Here’s the official synopsis for Green Lantern:

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.

    What? Toes? TOES???

    • Jon

      The toes are kind of odd, but kind of cool too. It looks like the suit is grafted to his skin…a bit biomechanical looking.

  • Michelle Szohr

    When The Green Lantern is released, the public will be bewildered between it, The Green Hornet and the Green Arrow from Smallville.

    • JJ

      I don’t think so. The fans have always known the difference. The Green Hornet came and went in Jan. There is has been no comparison of the two lately and with the new footage and the continued release of new Art work almost daily. I think by May when the new trailer is released with Thor, there will be no doubt there is only one “Green Lantern”

  • DarthDan

    @ JJ – I agree 100% with you; Green Lantern stands alone and I am so impressed with what I’ve seen thus far. I’m very much looking forward to what they’ll do with Parallax.

    @ baldowl – I too could do without the toes..

  • jymmymack

    Green Lantern has so much going for it… except the photoshopped-looking costume.

    • Brian

      …and the toes.

    They should have just made a real green lantern suite with sensors on it so they could go in and add special effects later as opposed to his fake looking crap(Neck and Mask especially). They would have saved time and money just using contacts for the effect on his eyes and a real mask with some CGI used for the bits where the mask dissolves on to and off his face.

  • Bryan

    I think everyone is being too critical of the costume. We’re all too accustomed to spandex, nomex, rubber and lately leather costumes that have appearances and textures we’re familiar with in our world. We can relate to it or imagine how cool it’d be to wear it ourselves. Green Lantern’s suit is created by his power ring. We can’t fathom a suit made of energy, because it’s doesn’t exist in our world. It’s supposed to alien and fake to some degree. If you had a suit made of energy, realistically, you’d probably look like a ridiculous CG character out of Star Wars prequel. The fact that they added additional details to make it feel more “earthly” is a bonus in my book. In the end it will be revolutionary and serve the character. So what if we can’t buy the pajamas this time around…

      The problem isn’t that it’s CGI and “unearthly”, the problem is that it’s bad CGI. It doesn’t look like it was created by the ring. It looks like it was created by a computer long after the fact. Davy Jones doesn’t look “earthly” or normal, but he looks like he was physically there on the set. Rorschach’s mask doesn’t look like it could exist in real life, but it looks like it was physically there on the set. It has texture and responds realistically to movement.

    • Brett

      See, that’s the problem. The fact that this movie needs an entire paragraph of explanation about how the costume works is proof that you’ve lost your audience. Because the mark of a fool is trying to rationalize stupidity. And what the design people have done is just plain bad; it’s an eyesore and people don’t want to stare at an eyesore for 2 hours. Really, it just boils down to one thing: You shouldn’t have to explain away the ugliness of the costume. Green Lantern fans may get the ugliness because they are fans. Average joes won’t give it that much time or space in their head. They’ll just say it looks dumb and not see the movie.

  • Bakes

    HULK SMASH! I love the new Hulk……

    —wait…its WHO?

  • SuperSeanski

    This reminds me of the Burton Superman costume.

    • SuperSeanski

      …with toes.

  • broski

    All he needs to do is grow a beak and he’ll look like a giant green duck.

  • mC ATTAck

    first bat-nipples now green toes! damn it!

  • Brett

    After the footage WB released, it looked so bad, I didn’t want to see this in the movies. Now, it looks so dumb, I don’t even want to see it on dvd. For free. This looks like it is going to be the silliest movie ever made and all the comic fans are making excuses for the awfulness of this flick because they think WAY TOO MUCH about a comic. The movie people over thought the costume, way, way, way too much.

  • Brett

    PS. Now you know this flick is going to be a stinker: you can see his stinky feet and the irony is inescapable. WB really shot themselves in the foot with this Green Lantern movie.

  • Rockslide

    Its definitely an interesting approach. I’m curious to see it in context and movement in the film. For some, this costume seems to supersede all other factors about the film to repulse them from theaters. For me, it is another factor of curiosity to attract me to the film. I’ve always been more of a Marvel guy, but GL is one of my favorite DC characters. I always liked how he bridged the gap between sci-fi and superhero genres. Hopefully the movie will be worthy of his potential.

  • Terry

    This and Thor will bomb like no other movies this year. Reynolds looks stupid in that suit. It plays like the greatest American hero. OMFG!
    And his skin is all bumpy from all the roids he been juicing on. What a fucking fail this will be.
