Yesterday we told you that principal photography had begun on the live-action adaptation of DC Comics' Green Lantern. The news was given out by Geoff Johns, recently named Chief Creative Officer for DC Entertainment, who revealed the first scene to be filmed on set in New Orleans was a bar scene.
Well, that was yesterday but today the very first set images for Green Lantern have appeared online and we have a few of them here for you to check out.
Now, those of you jittering with excitement over the prospect of seeing Ryan Reynolds in the green costume can calm down - these photos don't show us anything nearly as exciting as that. The pics are basically Reynolds (in regular clothing) and other cast and crew members on set either before, during or after shooting the bar scene (there's also a pic of the bar's logo).
Anyway, take a look at some of the photos below, courtesy of Comic Book Movie:

So nothing overly exciting but hey, better than nothing, right?
Seriously, these are just the first set pics - expect plenty more from this point on. It reminds me of another green costumed hero that's being adapted at the moment, Green Hornet with Seth Rogen. With that film we saw mundane set pics to begin with but eventually got snaps of Rogen in his green costume.
So what I'm saying is: be patient folks! And be sure to check back with Screen Rant for more set pics as they get released. :)
Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern, Mark Strong as Sinestro, Blake Lively as GL's love interest, Peter Sarsgaard as the villain Dr. Hector Hammond and Tim Robbins as the film hits theaters on June 17th, 2011.
