@ Darkknight2280 - I don't think it's a question of people not understanding that it won't be a 100% translation from the comic.  After all, the Thor pic from yesterday is not 100% faithful to the comic designs and most people loved it.  The GL costume just doesn't look aesthetically pleasing in that pic, and since it is the first official shot of the costume, that's a problem.

On the plus side, it being entirely CG means that they could probably re-render it with tweaks without too much trouble...

Looks GREAT! I love Ryan Reynolds, and GL. Heres hoping DC/WB doesn't screw the pooch on this one.

Can't wait for more Transformers!

 

Brody would be a cool Banner... I'd like a more weasley Banner like in Ultimates....

Don't worry Liev, I'm pretty sure I won't be at Wolverine 2 either.... Sucking suck suck movie

Oh, and does that say "The New Buffy" on the cover?  Didn't know that was happening.  I agree with Rheul, that looks like a pretty solid issue of EW.

I agree that it would be hard to come up with a completely lousy choice for Banner.  Ruffalo, Brody, or Phoenix would be great; all for different reasons.  Both Fillion and Tennant would be wrong simply because their geek following is already huge.  Don't tell me the majority of viewers of the recent Hamlet watched it for any other reason besides Tennant and Patrick Stewart starrring in it.  Sure both are talented actors but...I watch Castle because, honestly, I love the show but I know others, including critics, watch it simply because Fillion is the star... (That said, and just to be hypocritical,  I still want Fillion as Hank Pym...)

The Green Lantern mask makes me think of Green Hornet but, judging by recent masks on Smallville, that has to be the hardest piece of costume to design so I wil give them a pass...

If the blow through the origin in the credits, as was suggested the other day, 39 is only slightly too old. On the other hand, it's generally accepted Kryptonians don't age as fast making 39 more like 65...

Am I the only one who thinks Ruffalo would be far better suited to play Hank Pym/Giant Man/Ant Man? The more I think about it the more I like that idea.

I like the GL costume from what I have seen so far. It looks almost organic, which I think is a smart concept considering it is created and not just slipped on. I am excited to see more of it, and more from the rest of the cast.

I remember reading somewhere the suit is CG.  He is really wearing a black suit so you have to keep in mind simple pics like this will not look totally like the movie.

Now if im wrong oh well.  But i'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and wait for GL to come out first.  Or at least a decent trailer.

I don't like Zach Levi for Supes.  About the only decent part of the crapfest Superman Returns in my mind was Brandon Routh.  I thought he did a pretty good Superman.  Too bad the rest of the movie sucked.

Chadghostal: That's a good idea for Ruffalo. I think he'd make a great Pym. But I also think he'll do really well as Banner too. I don't get all the hate over the idea of him playing Banner. Ruffalo can be unnassuming, and the point of Banner is to be a foil to the Hulk. I think the choice is solid.

Green Lantern suit: I agree with everyone who is hesitant about this. It looks a little cheap. Is he going to be ALL green with those lines down the whole suit? I've been really looking forward to this one. It's probably my most anticipated film besides Cap. But the suit looks a bit uninspired to me. Wish they would have at least given him white gloves. Although, I have to say, are his eyes white? That's kind of cool, and something we haven't seen in a comic movie yet.

I'm glad to see The Riddler is getting his own movie, now if they can just make a decent Green Lantern Mov...guhhh!! choke...Cough choke....Sorry, Must've choked on my Hateraid.

I'm surprised at all this dislike for the GL suit. You knew it was going to be CG. Did you think it would just be the regular costume with a glow? Were you expecting a Tron-like costume? They did say they were going to make it look alien, something different species could wear and not look too comic booky.

I have more hesitancy about the Asgardian garb for the Thor movie. It looks too different from the comic book and its all gold and shiny. They kind of look like fancy chess pieces. But I'll live with it 'til I see it actually in a trailer.
