Here’s some flipping great new images of Ryan Reynolds in his Green Lantern costume courtesy of Breaking News USA. As far as I’m concerned, this is the decent look that we’ve had showing Ryan Reynolds all suited up.

I got to see the 8 minutes of footage from Wonder Con over the weekend at the UK equivalent, Kapow and I liked what I saw. My only criticism was that the voice of Geoffrey Rush as Tomar-Re didn’t really work at all but I’m going to do my best to get over that! The 8 minutes of footage was preceded by Green Lantern: Emerald Knights which runs for 80 minutes and was extremely handy for people like me who knew absolutely nothing about Green Lantern.  Emerald Knights explained where the rings came from and where the 300o odd (yes, that many) Green Lanterns came from. Before that, I thought there was only one!

Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Jon Tenney, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins.

It’s directed by Martin Campbell and is scheduled for release in the UK 17th June 2011.

Synopsis: In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan. Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Thanks to Coming Soon for the heads up on these.
