First Look at 'Green Lantern'

Entertainment Weekly’s cover this week features the first picture of Ryan Reynold’s mostly CGI costume for Warner Brother’s GREEN LANTERN.

The magazine, which should hit newstands tomorrow, will also figure some behind-the-scenes info and an interview with Reynolds. He told them avout some of the effects work, such as being proppelled through the air on a wire “at up to 60 feet a second” for flying scenes.
Rayan Reynolds said of that experience: “The first time you do it, you’re seriously considering an adult diaper.”
Personally, my first impression is that I don’t care for the CGI suit or skinny mask with the trite “raccoon” eye make-up. This tradition started with the Tim Burton BATMAN, and I’ve always felt it was a step in the wrong direction for superhero costumes, giving them a weird, androgynous vibe.
The Green Lantern uniform looks like a DaVinci drawing: peeled flesh — very costume-designer inspired, rather than the somewhat utilitarian look a police force would more likely favor.
Maybe the ‘ring-construct’ look will grown on me, as time goes by.
