"It has to be virtual rather than spandex, says Reynolds, wearing his grey sensor suit. This is a suit from an alien planet. Its not The Dark Knight I dont put the suit on and my voice drops several octaves, adds Reynolds, unfazed by the absence of green tights. The suit is powered specifically on his will, his emotion, his creativity and his imagination. I love that. Everything Hal creates are images from his childhood, he goes on. Or things fuelled specifically from his own mind.This still doesn't address the issue of the CGI featured in the trailer looking particularly unimpressive, with the visual motif appearing to be 'fluorescent green vomit' rather than 'comic-book cool'. It remains to be seen whether this polarising art direction will make sense when put into context with the full-length feature. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPcD9iX5huk Empire also asked him whether there were any issues with portraying both The Green Lantern and Deadpool, to which Reynolds replied;
"Those two universes are completely different.Superhero movies are so pervasive in pop culture, I dont look at the as superhero roles as much as just roles. Theyre such different people. Deadpool is about a guy in a highly militarised shame spiral, Green Lantern is more universally themed."I can't help but feel a little bit of bitterness towards The Green Lantern flick, when it is so clearly standing in the way of an altogether more exciting project in the fourth-wall breaking, cult-favourite Deadpool. What we have heard & seen thus far regarding Warner Bros. adaptation of the DC icon has been underwhelming, and with Ryan Reynold's charismatic and cocksure on-screen persona seemingly destined to don that red mask, this long wait for it to reach cinema's is almost unbearable.
