Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern Costume is Unreal in a Bad Way

I don’t do too many news items around here, but I felt compelled to comment on this “first look” at Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern “costume,” if you can call it that on the cover of EW (magazines are still useful!).

Let’s see, it’s horrific. Reynolds is not actually wearing a costume, rather the entire suit is CGI-ed onto his body, and hes acting the entire movie out with those little motioncapture balls attached to his body.

That’s why this entire thing looks like a photoshop disaster. But not even photoshop, like someone hand painted this cover for EW and called it a sneak peak. His mask appears to be little more than face paint, the toxic side effects of which appeal to turn his eyes white. The rest of the suit looks like if you ripped the skin off a human being so only their muscle sinew was showing, and then dipped them in green paint. Cool? Ehh, not so much, and at this rate if his entire body is CGI, I predict the action scenes are going to look like The Matrix Reloaded where computer generated Neo fought off 100 computer generated Agent Smiths with a computer generated pole.

Really, really strange.
