See Ryan Reynolds As the Green Lantern, Sort Of

Here it is, your first look at Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern on the cover of this week's EW. Reynolds probably didn't have to do much posing for this, though, since the suit doesn't actually exist — his performance in the movie will be motion-captured and his uniform painted on with computers. Why? Because Reynolds would have pooped in a real suit, increasing the film's dry-cleaning budget: "The first time you do it, you’re seriously considering an adult diaper,” he tells the magazine about the aerial stunts he was required to perform. Anyway, this thing looks silly, right?
