It was just announced that Ryan Reynolds would play Green Lantern and already the first photo has hit the web of him AS the Green Lantern… but wait. As cool and as real as this photo is it is fake fake fake. That does not make it any less cool. Check it out below courtesy of ThinkHero.

The Green Lantern was penned by Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, Berlanti will also help produce.  Shooting should start in and around November and will hit theaters on June 17, 2011. Ryan Reynolds will do a fantastic job in the lead and I am VERY excited for this movie now.
