Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern on the Cover of NEXT Entertainment Weekly!

GL Corpsman sends in a scoop about the next cover of Entertainment Weekly that all Green Lantern fans will want to pick up!

"Yesterday after work I was listening to Gale King's talk show on AM 1150. She had Entertainment Weekly Managing Editor, Jess Cagle on discussing the Mel Gibson tapes. At the end of the discussion he was asked "so is Mel EW's cover story next week?" To which he replied, "no actually, next week's cover will be Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern so that should be pretty cool".

That could be interpreted a lot of ways of course, but it might be cool if you could snag an early shot of the cover if indeed it is actually Ryan in costume.

(For the easily confused, this picture is of an OLD EW cover with Ryan Reynolds. The new cover shot will be much more... GREEN.)

Hellz Yeah with sprinkles on top! That would be sick if we could get a look at what the costume will look like!

I hope they don't screw this movie up. I'm not sold on Reynolds as Hal Jordan.
JoshWilding - 7/14/2010, 9:55 AM

Shaman - 7/14/2010, 9:58 AM
It'll be nice to see a pic of his suit to compare it to Chris in Thor's armor.

"In the red corner... In the blue corner... FIGHT!!!" :))

GWiz - 7/14/2010, 10:12 AM
hi all! new here

why hate on RR as HJ?

@juanimeli the costume will be mostly CGI
HelaGood - 7/14/2010, 10:12 AM
didnt know GL loved to snorkle...
thegreek - 7/14/2010, 10:13 AM
Nice Fartman
Shaman - 7/14/2010, 10:14 AM
Touché, Igirl ;)

My money's on Thor as being the best film while GL will get more at the box office for being more family friendly.
TheAmazingSmitty - 7/14/2010, 10:18 AM
I wouldn't read the entire magazine if I bought it, so I'll just wait for someone here to scan the cover and post an article.
InstigatorGIRL - 7/14/2010, 10:19 AM
I bet the cover will be him in civilian clothing and Martin Jordan's jacket while holding up his fist with the GL ring. It won't be of the actual costume.
DaenerysTargaryen - 7/14/2010, 10:19 AM
Ok so when's the next issue of Entertainment weekly gunna be released?
HelaGood - 7/14/2010, 10:19 AM
i confirm Shaman 's comment
THEMRTERRIFIC - 7/14/2010, 10:20 AM
Good Find! Can't wait!
superdog - 7/14/2010, 10:23 AM
screw the GL cover, i want that magazine cover in the article to post on my bedroom wall!!!!!
Destroyer14 - 7/14/2010, 10:25 AM
@Shaman If the Destroyer is awesome, I pick Thor to be the best movie of 2011, otherwise I'm going with The First Avenger.

I was thinking the same as IGirl - about a CU and just seeing the ring. Of course, I think it was EW that had the 1st pic of all the Watchmen in costume/cgi on a cover before anyone else so it could be true. Besides, Warner Bros. who, I believe is producing GL is also the parent company of EW, which make a lot of sense for them to get it 1st.
RedDevil - 7/14/2010, 10:36 AM
OMG this will force me to purchase the next EW magazine lol. Green Lantern will look badass! Ryan Reynolds actually looks like Hal if you look closely. Not on this cover but some other pics of him look more like Hal Jordan.

When Deadpool comes out, it should be that cover, but with Reynolds wearing the Deadpool mask

FINALLY SOME NEWS!!!! I second InterestingJohns comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beware my power!

For what it's worth, you can listen to that interview here. The comment comes at 19:22 (towards the end of the interview).
GLFanboy - 7/14/2010, 10:53 AM
Hey all!
I scooped this thing and I just want to make clear that I don't know for sure that Ryan will be on the cover. All I know is exactly what I wrote. She asked if the cover "story" will be about Mel and he replied with the "cover will be Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern". Ryan might be the cover story but I have no idea if that means the cover shot will be based on how she posed the question. Hopefully it is. I scooped it because I was kinda hoping someone from CBM would follow up. Maybe based on their commentary at the end about the new one being more green, it means they did.
