I wonder what Lantern fan Jeff thinks?

That's what I was wondering too :).  I'm not quite sure what to think of it yet.  There are elements of it that I like, but at the same time it wasn't quite what I was expecting.  I'm always willing to give a little leeway with the superhero movies, as I understand many or most of the costumes can't be directly transitioned to the big screen and not look goofy.

I'm trying not to love/hate anything based on 1 pic... but with that said, I can't say I'm super-lovin' it.

I agree with Cable that it's got a wierd organic/organism vibe happening.  It's all striated and glowing... hmmm.  Since it's CGI, they've got plenty of time to tweak it I guess...

I think it's too green. They need to throw in another color to offset the green a little. otherwise it's kind of dull. Dunno how I feel about the design itself. Might be ok.

Not a big fan of the way that turned out - he looks like Ben Stiller from Mystery Men in that photo.  I do like Ryan Reynolds though, so I still have high hopes for the movie.

The article does state that they'll be showing an extended preview at SDCC for those that are going...

Wow, Blake Lively looks great as a brunette.

Oh, the costume. Yeah not impressed. Don't see why they couldn't stick to a design closer to the comics since GL's costume is one of the more "live action friendly" costumes.

She would look great bald.

A series of one sheets from Green Lantern (one providing a bit of a look at Sinestro).  I believe these were handed out at Comic Con, if I read correctly.  Pretty cool.

Oooh... looks like Sin has power ring marks etched on his face or something.

I really hope Sinestro is a badd-ass prick.  Makes me look forward to the sequel and his fall from the corps... :)

Sounds like it is possible that Green Lantern 2 and 3 are already in development, with hopes of them being released once a year, LOTR-style in 2011, 2012, and 2013.  Nothing confirmed at this point, but those are the rumors (more at the linky).

If you want to see some alien Green Lantern designs then go to this page, scroll down and continue to the next few pages.  Some of them look great (Bzzd, the Guardians (all of who are named) and Apros) and some of them suck (Hannu specifically).

That magazine cover first offered here of Ryan Reynolds I thought it was more Wil Ferrell than Ben Stiller and looks like a lampoon rather than the real thing.

Thanks for posting that Mikey.  Although some of the designs are maybe a little wonky, overall they look pretty spiffy.  Just the fact that we could be seeing all of this on the big screen has me geeked, I hope the movie turns out and is a nice start to a trilogy.
