Today Warner Bros. released new images of Ryan Reynolds in his Green Lantern suit, with fully-realized special effects. Ooooh. Aaaah. They’re pretty and they’re availalble in all their high resolution glory after the cut, but for me, this suit is still an issue.
While the footage shown at WonderCon eased my doubts about the believability of the film’s CGI effects, the fact that they chose to make his outfit completely CGI bugs the crap out of me. Hal Jordan suits up in a way that could never be reproduced without CGI, but once he’s transformed why can’t Reynolds actually be wearing a costume. One that is tangible. And his mask? Come on, it looks ridiculous! Like he wakes up in the morning and paints the thing on. No one had a latex mask lying around?
All right, I’m done ranting. I know once I see the film I won’t be squawking about his costume anymore because all of the other amazing CGI effects will be a feast for my eyes. Check out the new pics below the cut and let me know what you think about the final CGI outfit. Wearable, bearable or terrible?

Okay, ugh, I really wanted to be excited about this show. I really wanted Wonder Woman to finally be given the movie/TV adaptation treatment she so justly deserves as a member of DC’s holy trinity. Batman and Superman get new movies every other week but other than her exploits in animation we’ve never had a Wonder Woman movie.
We’re getting a TV series which was great news until we read the script and realized this wasn’t Wonder Woman at all. This was some love-sick CEO who at night fights petty criminals and then goes home eats a pint of ice cream and mopes about her single life like she’s Carrie from Sex and the City.
Where the hell is our kick-ass Amazon Princess?! I know where she’s not, in this god-awful, out-of-the-bag Halloween costume. Seriously, who looked at this and thought, “Yes, we’ve nailed Wonder Woman’s iconic look!” You got the colors right, but that’s about it. I thought we had moved beyond putting female heroes in skin-tight leather costumes when we realized no one will ever look as good as Michelle Pfeiffer‘s Catwoman.
