The First Official Look at Ryan Reynolds as ‘Green Lantern’!

Entertainment Weekly has debuted their latest magazine cover which features a first look at Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern, which will hit theaters nationwide on June 17, 2011.

First Look at Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern

Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot who becomes a ring-wearing intergalactic superhero in this massive sci-fi epic from director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale). Though Reynolds has prior experience in the superhero realm from his role as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, playing Green Lantern involved some major challenges, like getting hurled through the air on a wire at up to 60 feet per second to create the illusion of flight. "The first time you do it, you're seriously considering an adult diaper," Reynolds says. Still, he couldn't resist the chance to play the beloved DC Comics hero, whose power ring can conjure virtually anything he can dream up. "Will and imagination are his superpowers," Reynolds says. "We need a circus of Timothy Learys to think of things Hal would invent with his ring."

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further developments regarding Green Lantern as soon as we have more information.

Green Lantern was released June 17th, 2011.

        @movie-nut: That's a good point, about the suit looking like it was heavily influenced by Dr. Manhattan. I didn't even think about that before.

          I do heftily prefer the Marvel universe and movies, but sadly, I do have to agree here. The DC movies have almost always been good, unlike Marvel. We don't have to talk about Spider-man 3, do we?

          I am really liking this suit. It looks alien and organic, and I'm lookin forward go this now, despite never being a huge Green Lantern fan

          The one problem I have with this is that it looks like Dr. Manhattan was a heavy influence in the design. I don't even mind the mask.

                Is it just me or do some of you think of stop reading and watching the mistakes marvel keeps doing. The only thing I'll watch will be Iron-man until the film studio starts controlling Jon. Their mistakes are getting me down.

                  I totally agree with Todd89, DC seems to have their act together. And they are commited to making some good films. With Batman 3, Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, and maybe even a JLA movie coming soon depending on how well the next Superman film does. Which it should since Nolan and company are gonna be making it. Everything Nolan touches turns to gold and i think he will make Superman a movie even non Superman films will wanna see.

                      I sure hope that the DC films beat out Marvel to a degree, so far nothing has gone wrong with them.

                      When it comes to the marvel films, there seems to be a bit more unreliable and having more than a few troubles with certain Superheroes or monsters.

                      Don't get me wrong I like both Universe's its the choices their making which irritating the hell out of me.

                                      Sorry but this looks f*cking retarded. And I'm not gonna be seeing this (not big into superhero, comic books movies besides The Dark Knight and Kick Ass) because I cannot stand Ryan Reynolds.
