New images show Green Lantern's costume in head-to-toe detail

04.12.2011

I'm probably more skeptical of GREEN LANTERN than I am CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR or FIRST CLASS. As much as I love Ryan Reynolds, it's a pretty out there origin story to transfer to film, and I don't know how it's going to play out.

But another source of concern for me is the costume, which is entirely CGI. I understand the concept of the costume being almost a living thing, but I'm a bit worried it's going to look wonky on film, and from what I've seen in the trailer, it kind of does.

Now three new incredibly detailed images of the costume have been released. We see it in a few different poses, but not from behind, as presumably Reynold's space ass would just be too much to handle. This thing is so form fitting, you can see his individual toes, so it's no wonder the darkest part of the image is the crotch region.

What do you think of the costume?

I really just do NOT understand the hate for the suit. I just don't get it; it puzzles me. What's so bad/wrong about it? Why isn't it "Marketable" (which, btw, is fucking stupid to say)? It looks like it's made from alien technology (which it is). It looks ten times better than fucking spandex which makes NO SENSE considering Hal's will creates the suit, and sorry, but if I was wearing that ring, why the FUCK would I create a spandex suit?!? Really? "hmmm, I think I'd like SPANDEX!!!"

Jesus. People will complain about anything. I think the people complaining are Marvel fans and are mad because DC finally has finally launched another successful Hero and it stings a little.

If the footage released STILL makes people believe this suit sucks then there's no hope for them. It looks GREAT in motion. The CG is fantastic and it looks REAL!

Fanboys..you gotta love'em. I thought everyone cheered when the green lantern footage was posted up a couple of weeks back, shows how much of an attention span people have.

To the haters:

Anyone who says this movie looks bad, knows NOTHING about the source material. Go watch "Wanted" and save your neanderthal comments to your yourself or your group of friends who wear superhero-inspired Ed Hardy shirts.

Green Lantern's costume sucks. Deal with it. And no it is not THAT much faithful to the source material..go open some GL comics, go, go now! And please tell me where and when Green Lantern or any of the GL Corps wear muscle tissue looking suits. And the white eyes is something that works in books, not in live action. I wonder how many people would think it looks good on Batman!?

No matter how the movie turns out to be, good or bad (I want it to be good!), the video game looking special

No matter how the movie turns out to be, good or bad (I want it to be good!), the video game looking special effects and ridiculous costumes are gonna hurt this movie in the end.

And I agree, should have been the Flash.

Costume...

Sure it's not too late to change the costume and CGI over it? I think I can wait a few more months for it to release.

Because Spider-Man's costume wasn't anywhere as awful looking as Green Lantern. And by the way, it's not THAT faithful to the source material.

God, that is laughable!

The mask looks like it was photoshopped on later, which I guess it kinda was. The footage from last week had me a little more enthusiastic about this film, but now I am back to thinking it will be a trainwreck. And even if it a great movie, the costume will bug the crap out of me all the way through it.
And they should have cast Fillion as Jordan!

OK. Admittedly, the toes look... strange. But aside from that, this is a wonderful design for this character. When I heard that the costume was going to be entirely CG and that conceptually that the uniform (not "suit" or "costume" since cops wear UNIFORMS) was a construct of the ring... well, that's just brilliant. The film is behind CAP, but just ahead of THOR on the must-see list.

If they don't make HUGE changes to the special effects (and I'm tired of hearing the nerds get up in arms sayin that the sfx shots aren't finished...bad excuse)this movie is going to bomb after everybody starts making fun of it for it's bad looking effects! Looks way too much like a video game imo.

With a mask that small, what's the point? It's about as useful as Clark Kent's glasses. I like the rest of the suit.

@Chambonee, LeslieVernon, sorry for the late reply, i didn't get an email notice. Anyway, my apologies. I thought i was being clear. I meant the web shooters looked stupid on the suit not that the web shooters themselves are dumb. I'm use to the webs coming out of "Spider-man's" wrists not with the cartridge thing... if thats what they are using this time. I only watched the movies and show. I don't read the comics.

so much hate

i don't understand the hate on this, it looks totally fine, they're doing something new and staying faithful to the comic costume at the same time, very hard to do.
it's not like the travesty of cgi they did designing the Transformers, at least this stays close to the original, as well as makes logical sense in the story, rather that a fabric suit would.

I don't think anyone is clamoring for a fabric suit.

According to earlier stories, this suit is supposed to be a construct of his childhood imaginings.

Fine.

How many children do you know imagine themselves slathered in a radioactive bacon leotard?

Or would it be more likely that they imagine themselves in some kind of futuristic armor?

jrakman - radioactive bacon? What?

So, you speak for all the children in the world huh? Kinda creepy. Some kids have a imagination, unlike the boring ones who all dream up armor, which btw, wouldn't be faithful to the character and would be dumb. This stays faithful to the character, the idea of the ring itself, the alien technology, and it does it all while also updating it -- very hard to do.

It's a poor design, and no amount of airbrushing digital or otherwise can change that.

The CGI suit is growing on me

I like the organic nature of it and also the way it seems to pulse with energy. I also like how each suit is different and reflects things about the wearer. The feet however are freaking me right the fuck out.

I'm still not convinced and it looks way too cgi for me. Computer graphics have come a long way and for the suit to look this fake so late in the game is embarassing and unprofessional. I could be wrong when the movie hits and everything could work out but my doubt level is high and the anticipation level is low.

The feet are looking a little creepy, but I like the concept and the design! It is a great translation to film and it makes perfectly sense...

Extra Tidbit: Reynolds would have been a great Flash, but I also like him as Hal now. My top choice for Flash is Chris Pine.

I think it looks great, infact perfect. It fits the tone of the character, the origins of the character, and the tone that this movie is representing.

Can't wait for this movie. I think the whole risk of the whole outer space epic is going to pay off big time when the film is released.

Reynolds would have made a better Flash than Green Lantern, but Reynolds looks great in the movie, so I wouldn't mind having Bradley Cooper step in and play The Flash.

Now when the eyes look like THAT and aren't trying to look human, the suit works and I have no problem with it. It's when the eyeballs are too white and his pupils pop out in the trailers where it looks like a cartoon.

On another site, people are whining about the toes - which I'm sure will happen here. Not sure why though, if it is truly form fitting, why not?

I think it looks perfect personally.
