While the marketing for the Green Lantern has been a little soft in comparison to Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Warner Bros. has really stepped it up during the past week. Last week’s WonderCon footage caused a huge stir on the Internnet and alleviated a lot of the fear that fans were feeling about the flick. And now the studio has released the first true full-body images of Ryan Reynolds in his Green Lantern duds.
Even though it’s common knowledge by now, it’s worth pointing out that the only real part of these pictures is Ryan Reynolds’ head. The uniform, body, and mask are all a CGI creation. And while the new effects-heavy footage and photos have looked good, it’ll be interesting to see how the rampant effects hold up over the span of a two-hour movie.
Warner Brothers is hoping that Green Lantern does for them what Iron Man did for Marvel back in 2008. And with the film’s June 17 release date rapidly approaching, they won’t have to wait much longer.
