Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern -- First Look!

Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern -- First Look!

Here is your first look of Ryan Reynolds as the green superhero Green Lantern, compliments of EW. Here’s what the 33-year-old spilled (per usual, his quotes are hilarious):

On the perils of flying at high speed: “The first time you do it, you’re deeply considering an adult diaper.”

On maintaining a monk-like diet: “It’s all part of the job, so I guess I can’t complain. You spend one day a week eating what you want and the other six days eating drywall and wood chips.”

On wife Scarlett Johansson playing Black Widow in the Iron Man franchise: “We have a lot of comic books lying around the house – more than the average young married couple.”

On his face being plastered on green-hued products everywhere: “There’ll be the Green Lantern hubcaps. The Green Lantern terry-cloth onesie. The Green Lantern prostate check.”

Green Lantern is set for a June 17, 2011 release. It was directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and co-stars Tim Robbins, Blake Lively, Mark Strong and Peter Sarsgaard.

    If I were black I would be so pissed at this. The Green Lantern has traditionally been a black character. Like, the only one, and they get a white guy to play him in the movie? That blows.

    Gary Peterson Says:

    Black? That’s ONLY if you’ve watched the Green Lantern in the JL cartoon! Do your research. Hal Jordan is white and was created in the 1950′s. There are many Green Lanterns. Including a black one and a hispanic one as well.

    Donovan = Ignorant Says:

    Thanks for your completely ignorant and uninformed comment, Donovan.

    Green Lantern of Earth, Hal Jordan, will not be yet another Affirmative Action failure in the films as he was in the animated series for children.

    Please get back to work at the drive-thru window now, Donny.

    pretty cool. to be honest, the mask around his eyes is odd shaped but other than that it’s good. c’mon.. after seeing how bad those thor photos were this is a million times better. i see they’re going with a more cgi look. hope it doesnt suck like the original avatar [the last airbender] did

    Great sense of humor! I’m sure Ryan will pull this off well. Though I’m really looking forward to his new movie Buried. That one sounds really interesting.

    lol. For his sake I hope it’s successful, but he looks ridiculous. Looking better than the Thor shots is no recommendation lol.

    @Donovan = Ignorant:

    Wow…did you really have to bring up affirmative action? For that, I’m going to have to ask you to do the world a favor by jumping off a bridge with weights just to make sure the job gets done.

    Sorry, but I HATE it when people bring it up and make a big deal out of it.

    It’s noteworthy to say most films have white comicbook characters starring in them. What does this say about hollywood and america?

    And Won Says:

    There are a bunch of Green Lanterns:

    Golden Age: Alan Scott – White
    Silver Age: Hal Jordan – White (Most popular of all time)
    Bronze Age: John Stewart – Black
    80′s meathead GL: Guy Gardner – White
    Modern Age: Kyle Raynor – White

    Regardless this promo pic looks pretty lame

    Butterface tbh.

    @the african darkside:

    Ummm…that they are commensurate with the country’s demographics?

    the african darkside Says:


    This is my opinion not necessarily fact.

    Hollywood producers,executives etc,have every right to make legally
    acceptable movies but i firmly beleive movies represent lead white character than any other group of people also i’ve notice through tv
    and internet research that this country is becoming very diversed.

    Do these executive think all americans are dumb. Nothing against ryan or actors but hollywood films seems unbalanced racially.

    Looks stooooopid.

    Green Lantern is a horrible “super hero” ..

    Jokergurl Says:

    It looks silly but hopefully with Reynolds in it , it will be cool I’d rather see him as Deadpool though continuing his role in the Wolverine movies (before he met Wolverine because Deadpool is kind of dead when Wolverine gets done with him.) It’s too bad he separated his shoulder on the set the other day though, that had t hurt. This will slow down filming for a while.

    brenda Says:

    What can I say?..I like him ,he is funny ,but like a super hero?

    Charlie Says:

    Silly Donovan! If Green Lantern was African, then he would have been known as Black Lantern. I’m shocked you did not know that.

    He is the hottest
