First Look at Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern!

Reynolds graces the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week dressed as the Green Lantern.

In the magazine, he talks about training for the part, his wife Scarlett as the Black Widow and his feelings about his face on green products everywhere.

The mag also offers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the much anticipated hero flick that will be released next summer.

Here are some tidbits from the interview:

On his strict diet: “It’s all part of the job, so I guess I can’t complain. You spend one day a week eating what you want and the other six days eating drywall and wood chips.”

On getting hurled through the air on a wire at up to 60 feet per second: “The first time you do it, you’re seriously considering an adult diaper.”

On his wife Scarlett Johansson playing Black Widow: “We have a lot of comic books lying around the house – more than the average young married couple.”

On being the face of The Green Lantern: “There’ll be the Green Lantern hubcaps. The Green Lantern terry-cloth onesie. The Green Lantern prostate check.”
