Ryan Reynolds Sports New Green Lantern Costume
Over the past few months of “Green Lantern” shooting, fans been teased with just enough information to keep them guessing about Ryan Reynold’s upcoming ring-slinging adventures. Sure, our imaginations ran a little wild after viewing some early (boring) set photos, but after Peter Sarsgaard was caught in his Hector Hammond makeup, we knew things were probably on track. With the release of this week’s “Entertainment Weekly,” fandom can finally stop guessing. Here’s Reynolds in his GL duds:
The movie costume seems to combine Hal Jordan’s classic ring shape, domino mask and chest emblem with a kind of ribbed muscle tissue texture. The rubbery alien aspect of the costume tissue evokes something between one of Marvel’s symbiotes and (this will sound a little random) the X-O Manowar suit, mostly because the setting of the emblem makes it seem like it could be ripped out of Reynold’s chest rather than off a ring-generated, seemingly painted-on uniform. There’s also a lack of white gloves (and possibly boots?), but those areas seem to be give off some kind of glow that could sort of fill in for the white bits and provide some contrast. Or Maybe Jordan’s naked? That’d be a game-changer!
