Ok, so Warner Bros. finally released some official still photos of Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern Hal Jordan and all anyone can talk about is his feet!!! I am pretty sure this was the complete opposite reaction DC Comics was hoping for. After all the money they spent on the computer graphics for this Green Lantern film you’d think they would have ended up with a better result. I don’t hate it as much as I did at first glance, but these photos are not getting me excited to see this film.
I know they’ve been tweaking Green Lantern’s look for months, but couldn’t they have spent a little extra time design him some boots? If we’ve learned anything over these past few weeks between the Wonder Woman costume and now this, it’s that the boots really do matter! Let’s be honest, if I had a power ring that would allow me to design any costume I could imagine there isn’t a single design that doesn’t include shoes. That’s it, end of story…so get Hal out of those wanna be Vibram FiveFingers “shoes” and put some cool boots on him!
And don’t even get me started on the fact that the movie is just now hiring someone (Michael Clarke Duncan) to voice Kilowog…the film comes out in 9 freaking weeks! How in the world are things this far behind?
Green Lantern is scheduled to limp into theaters on June 17, 2011.
