Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at the latest superhero movie, Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds stars as test pilot Hal Jordan who receives a special ring that turns him into the green suit wearing hero. I have to say, he looks really hot. When does he not though? This will be Reynolds’ third turn as comic book character. He also played Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity and Deadpool in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a role he will reprise in the character’s upcoming movie.
Justin Timberlake was actually considered for the role. I think we’re all glad that didn’t happen. Green Lantern co-stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett as HBIC Amanda Waller.
The movie is scheduled to be released on June 17, 2011. That’s plenty of time to get familiar with the Green Lantern and all of his fabulous rings.
