Ryan Reynolds: The Green Lantern
Ryan Reynolds patrolled sector 2814 of the universe as the Green Lantern — alter ego Hal Jordan — in the 2011 summer blockbuster Green Lantern. For the part, Ryan wore a special suit filled with sensors. The skin-tight, glowing uniform we see in the movie was “painted on” via post-production technology. Ryan dished to MTV News, “[S]eeing the prototypes for the Green Lantern costumes was a huge moment. It was a moment when I was like, ‘This is happening, and it’s happening in the right way.’” And when you have a body like Ryan’s, there is no wrong way.
Along with a badass costume and a sweet Green Lantern power ring, Ryan scored a gorgeous on-screen love interest — who wasn’t, shock of shocks, Sandra Bullock. Gossip Girl star Blake Lively romanced Hal as Carol Ferris, the daughter of the aerospace tycoon who hires fearless Hal as a test pilot.
