Is Angela Basset planning to gain 200 pounds?

I was wondering the same thing when I read that.

Just saw this over at SHH



I think it is more for licensing/promo stuff than the actual "movie poster", but still gets me excited for the GL movie.

Anyone can be chosen?  Is that a phrase from the comics?  Sounds a little goofy.

I'm not sure, but I remember this week reading about the new merchandise licensing/etc. and it say how the toys coming out for the movie next year were going to include rings so any kid could be "chosen" for the corps...or something along those lines.  I'm thinking that possibly that is what this is referring to, but I don't know.  I'm really only familiar with the recent years of Green Lantern (since the relaunch in 2005 or so), and I don't recall this being from the comics.  Someone else (Jeff?) could provide a better answer though I'm guessing.

More "not quite a movie poster" images for GL.

On one hand, I'm really really looking forward to this movie... on the other hand, I'm worried my 25+years of being a GL fanboy will set my expectations way too high to enjoy it.   :-\

Meh, I could never get into DC with the exception of Batman for some reason.

Luckily for me with all the Marvel movies coming out, I'll still be getting a megadose of coolness.

When you say GL, I keep thinking George Lucas. Why would George Lucas have a movie posters?

First pic of Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern

Just saw that here this morning, a little different than I expected.  I've really got high hopes for this movie, so hopefully it will come through.

When I first read a comment from Reynolds that his suit was going to be CGI, I kind of had a panic moment.  But this looks interesting.

Still, I would think being in a superhero film, one of the coolest parts would be to actually put on THE suit to help become the hero.  Just putting on a blue spandex jumpsuit so they can CGI in the cool stuff later wouldn't quite cut it...unless, I guess, if you were Superman. 

It's like Thing vs Hulk.  I never cared for either Hulk, but put Michael Chiklis in the Thing suit and I thought it was a well done performance.  Same with RDJ, if he didn't actually get in the Iron Man suit I think something would have been lost in the performance.

It's strange... like they're going for a living organism.  I never thought the uniform bestowed any sort of power.

Also not a big fan of the mask.  Looks like they want him to be able to emote with his brow, but it's too low and looks kind of odd as a result.

Here's a hi res version of the pic.  When you look at the larger version, you can see a little more detail.  Looks almost like the edges of the costume (and mask) sort of blend with the skin.  I don't see any "edges" really.  Hopefully we get a better look (or even a teaser) at SDCC.

Now that's even weirder.  Like the mask is painted on.  I guess that's why the cut the photo off at the waist...

I wonder what Lantern fan Jeff thinks?
