Next week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly was supposed to lead with the Mel Gibson story. I’m sure you’ve heard about it: apparently he said some things that didn’t go over well with the rest of the world, or something. But instead, word on the street is that fans of comic flicks will get a pre-Comic-Con look at Ryan Reynolds in his fully rendered costume for Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern.
Footage is expected to screen in San Diego, but it’s likely that the EW cover will be online by mid-week (the issue hits news stands Friday). This is exciting, as the Reynolds Lantern look will be much talked about. Hopefully it doesn’t earn the same reaction as the costumes from Thor. That didn’t seem to go over so well.
