Movie Green Lantern Looks Less Ridiculous In Video Game Form

While real-life Ryan Reynolds looks a tad bit goofy when donning his computer-generated Green Lantern super suit, the video game version of Reynolds might just be able to pull it off.

While I’m still holding out hope that the live-action Green Lantern movie will be a runaway hit, every time I see Ryan Reynolds glowing green it kills a little bit of that hope.

Developer Double Helix games seems to be faring better with the video game incarnation of the emerald warrior in Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, due out this (northern) summer for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, DS and PSP. Ryan actually looks more nature in CGI form than in real life, which is a pretty astounding and somewhat depressing feat, at least as far as the star is concerned.

Sinestro and Kilowog look nice as well.

Of course, this is CGI, and the real game won’t look anything like this, but who knows? Maybe the game will wind up better than the film for once.


  • There’s also the fact all we’ve seen is an early teaser trailer, so maybe the finished product will look a hell of a lot better than say, an early teaser trailer… just sayin’.

  • I’m surprised the Ryan Reynolds looks fairly decent. Usually when real-life actors are rendered, they end up looking like mutants (Iron Man 2’s RDJ and pretty much every version of Daniel Craig)
