Comic Observations: Gaze Upon the Visage of Odin.....and the creepy mask of Green Lantern

Here's a new photo from Marvel's upcoming Thor film. It depicts Anthony Hopkins as Odin, flanked by his sons Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).

Well, first off, I like the Jack Kirby-esque design of the costumes, even if they look sort of, plasticy. But I really hope that the lighting here is a little more bright than what we'll see in the finished film. Hopkins is a great choice for the role of Odin, and Hemsworth certainly looks the part of the Mighty Thor.

But, out of all the Marvel properties, Thor has the biggest chance of plunging headlong into silliness, so we'll see.

And speaking of silliness, below you'll find the first released photo of Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern, and, looks fucking ridiculous. I still don't know why they went with a CGI mask. What, is spirit gum too expensive?
