Will Ryan Reynolds‘ superhero costume in Green Lantern look anything like this recently posted piece of concept art?
I hope not…
Comic artist Jason Palmer posted the following message to his Deviant Art blog last week:
“Hello all, Been busy with, among other things, two movies each based on DC comic characters (one has a scar, one has a ring) I’ll share with you when I can.”
If Palmer’s claims are legit, he is working on concept art for the movie adaptations of Jonah Hex and Green Lantern.
Things get a bit more interesting as the image above was uploaded to his Deviant Art portfolio, included with the following description:
“I did some work for the upcoming Green Lantern movie. I can’t show the submitted art, but this is some extra art I did as a cover to the submission pdf, but was strangely not included in the submission. Oh well. For this art, I didn’t use costume designs or Reynolds ref that was provided by WB, so I can share it with you. “
Again, we can’t confirm Palmer’s claims, and it seems odd that he would post artwork relating to the movie if he was officially working on the production. The whole thing smells fishy. What do you think? Would someone working on the film be stupid enough to post anything remotely connected with the production? Seems unlikely. Either way, Palmer admits in the post that he didn’t use “costume designs or Reynolds ref that was provided by WB” for the art above.
Lets hope that this isn’t anything like what we’ll see on the big screen. Personally I thought Josh MC’s fan vision of the costume to be wayyyy cooler:
