Entertainment Weekly has featured a photograph of Ryan Reynolds in costume (er, kinda) as The Green Lantern! As many of you undoubtedly know, Green Lantern's suit isn't made of fabric or rubber, but is completely CGI, composited onto Reynolds' body in post production. While the body looks interesting and detailed, cluing us into why the suit had to be computer generated, the mask looks decidedly fake...
Here's a clip from the Entertainment Weekly article:
Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot who becomes a ring-wearing intergalactic superhero in this massive sci-fi epic from director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale). Though Reynolds has prior experience in the superhero realm from his role as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, playing Green Lantern involved some major challenges, like getting hurled through the air on a wire at up to 60 feet per second to create the illusion of flight. “The first time you do it, you’re seriously considering an adult diaper,” Reynolds says. Still, he couldn’t resist the chance to play the beloved DC Comics hero, whose power ring can conjure virtually anything he can dream up. “Will and imagination are his superpowers,” Reynolds says. “We need a circus of Timothy Learys to think of things Hal would invent with his ring.”
