I have to admit that Green Lantern is shaping up to exceed my expectations. Early looks at the costume and teaser really turned me off, but the last two trailers have given me much hope. Take a look below.
*it’s available now!
Looks like Wonder Woman isn’t the only DC hero that can’t stop messing with their wardrobe. Warner Bros recently released new images of Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern suit tweaked from the first version (pictured left). After seeing the new trailer at San Francisco’sWonderCon, I was a little more assured that this wasn’t going to be a total DC failure. However, I am still not a fan of the total CGI costume and would have preferred an actual suit that was enhanced with special effects. Call me old fashion. Below is the suit in it’s latest incarnation. Looks like there is a little more detail with an emphasis on the power surging through the suit. It also appears there is a more noticeable ‘scales’ texture on the black areas. While maybe the story maybe able to win me over, I am doubtful the suit ever will. Your thoughts?
This past weekend, a few of us Babblers were able to attend WonderCon in San Francisco. Even though this is the younger brother of San Diego Comic Con, this convention still released some great material from Cowboys & Aliens, ThunderCats, and the new Green Lantern Trailer. We were all pretty skeptical after seeing the first trailer but this new version is more promising. What do you think? Can you resist the green lantern’s might?

Just in time for the San Diego Comic Con, Entertainment Weekly released it’s cover for the new Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds. This will sure to fan the flames of fandom all across the internet as well as the halls of Comic Con. If you look at the cover, there are also sneak peeks at Thor and Tron, perhaps the geek will inherit the Earth. A lot of big movies coming out, but will GL be the one ring to rule them all? What do you think?
MTV was able to get an image from the set of “Green Lantern” that, while it doesn’t show Reynolds in full-on costume, it does provide an indication of how that costume will be created for the big screen. Reynolds is seen zipping up a full motion-capture suit on the set of “Green Lantern,” indicating some heavy CGI could indeed be used to bring the DC hero’s emerald-hued costume to life. I hope that dog is not in the movie as a Green Lantern!
