We’ve all been waiting a long time for this, and now the Green Lantern trailer has finally crashed landed on Earth. Watch it above if you haven’t already.
I have to say, I’m really not impressed. I get the weird sci-fi universe that has to be created here because of the lore, but it’s trying too hard for an Iron Man vibe, and Reynold’s CGI suit looks pretty horrible, even in 1080p. I just have a hard time believing with all the space age materials we have access to these days, they couldn’t have crafted a physical suit that would look better than this. Watch the part at the end where his abs pulsate through the suit, it’s just plain weird.
The rest of it looks “action-packed” as they say, but for as much as I love him, I don’t think this was the right role for Reynolds, and I never have. This trailers reinforces that belief, but I supposed I should reserve judgement for the final product. And I think the backstory of the lantern and its villains is going to be just too batshit crazy for mainstream audiences.
What do you guys make of it?
