Green Lantern images leak from Entertainment Weekly.

Tomorrow's Entertainment Weekly is all about next week's Comic-Con, so the lead-off article concerns Martin Campbell's Green Lantern film. As such, we've got the first real photos of the film and its cast. As for the cover image, I can't really understand what some geeks are complaining about. It's Hal Jordan Green Lantern, for better or worse. We all knew that the suit itself was going to be a combination of motion capture and CGI, so it's basically a light-and-magic show atop Ryan Reynold's frame. This is no different than the complaining that occurred after the first teaser for Hulk premiered over the 2003 Super Bowl. It was a giant green monster-man with purple pants, what exactly were you expecting? Anyway, more earthbound images were released as well for those who care after the jump. The verdict? The cast looks solid, Blake Lively looks terrific as a brunette, and the tone seems to be relatively solemn at the moment. Expect to see a trailer either at the actual Comic Con next week, or attached to either Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore on July 30th or (if they can wait that long), Zack Snyder's Legend of the Guardians on September 24th.
