Tattoo Tuesday- Green Lantern

Despite your (I assume) ill feelings about the Green Lantern movie, I hope you can still enjoy this permanent body art dedicated to the Green Lantern. At least these Green Lantern tattoos won’t take your money and make you sit in a theater for 114 minutes forcing you to watch an ironically unimaginative movie with CGI overload that takes itself too seriously. (By the way I haven’t seen the movie, I’m just guessing that’s how it was based on the trailers and my twitter timeline.)

I include all the information about the tattoo that was available. If you are interested in having me feature your geeky tattoo on a future Tattoo Tuesday feel free to email me at girlgonegeekblog[at].com.

First look at Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern

Here’s a first look at Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern.  I don’t know much about The Green Lantern.  He didn’t do too bad as Deadpool (at least I don’t think so) so maybe he’s had some practice in the superhero/villain realm.  Do you guys think he will do the Green Lantern justice? Sound off in the comment section below.

Quote from Entertainment Weekly:

“Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot who becomes a ring-wearing intergalactic superhero in this massive sci-fi epic from director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale). Though Reynolds has prior experience in the superhero realm from his role as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, playing Green Lantern involved some major challenges, like getting hurled through the air on a wire at up to 60 feet per second to create the illusion of flight. “The first time you do it, you’re seriously considering an adult diaper,” Reynolds says. Still, he couldn’t resist the chance to play the beloved DC Comics hero, whose power ring can conjure virtually anything he can dream up. “Will and imagination are his superpowers,” Reynolds says. “We need a circus of Timothy Learys to think of things Hal would invent with his ring.””
