Rate Green Lantern's Film Costume

image

The first costume reveal from Green Lantern is here, and it's probably different than you expected it to be.

Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been teasing comic fans for a while, with details slowly emerging about the upcoming Green Lantern movie. Up until now, fans haven't been able to see how the costume would look on Ryan Reynolds because it's going to be largely computer-generated. The upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly reveals the costume, which is certainly different from how it looks in the comics.

There are similarities between this outfit and the one sported in print &mdash the chest symbol, the ring, and the mask &mdash but this is still fairly original. The issue of Entertainment Weekly is due out tomorrow, and presumably the costume design will be just one of several elements discussed in the article.

What will be interesting to see to see is how Sinestro and Parallax look, as well as the rest of the Green Lantern Corps. No two members of the Corps sport the exact same look, but they generally keep a similar uniform motif, meaning there could be some crazy character designs. If Jack Chance gets a cameo and appears as he did in the comics, my inner comic nerd will be satisfied.

It's certainly not unusual for a superhero's costume to get an overhaul when it hits the big screen, but I'm not convinced this was the right direction. What say you about the costume: On Target or Off Track?

It looks alright, I suppose.
Although, it doesn't look as much like a Green Lantern suit as much as it looks like his skin is glowing green.

Personally I think it looks fine although I'm not actually a fan of the Green Lantern comics, I just kind of know he exists and thats it.

Is it just me or does it look a little like a Crysis nano-suit?

I'm still not too fond of the costume. I don't see why they couldn't have gone witha traditional, tangible costume. Plus, why is his mask painted on?

Not being a comics fan I think it looks ok, but it goes down all the way like that? if that's the case then i dont like it.

I keep getting confused between Green Hornet and Green Lantern..

OT: It looks ok I suppose. Nothing special, but then again it doesn't need to be a masterpiece of costume design.

The suit is fine, but that mask is atrocious.

Very intresting costume...looks like a nuclear reactor in his chest or something...

I say its preety good.

It makes sense I suppose, what with it being alien tech and all, but really? That's what they're going with?

What was wrong with going withe something like this?

I think that would have looked fine on screen.

As a fan of Green Lantern since the "Rebirth" storyline I am all for overhauls and changes to costumes and such "when necessary" but I find the movie costume to be a little off. There is no signature white or black in the costume (at least from what I can see) but I do like how the costume glows in between the muscle like pattern. And on another note, I think the whole white/green eyes is...interesting?

Overall though I think I'll wait to see it in motion before I label it "Shitty" or "Great". :)

Looks good to me. The thing to remember is that the costume is created via the ring, I'd say that it makes sense to make something simple and fairly form fitting instead of an elaborate regular costume.

He looks like Ben Stiller.

(laughs his head off)

Green Crysis nano-suit. Looks okay. The mask looks terrible though.

Why, whenever there is a comic-superhero-to-movie adaption, do people get so... er... opinionated about the costume?

I'm really on the fence about the costume. On the one hand it looks decent and I cut comic book movies a bit of slack for Hollywooding up some costumes. But Green Lantern's costume shouldn't have been that much of a problem and I really don't think they should have strayed as far as they seem to have with this choice.

Still though, the costume looks decent and I hold out hope that the movie will be good; but vansau brought up a good point about the other costumes for the Corps members. Though I have doubts that each costume will have the minor changes they do in the comic, I can still hope like all hell they'll include such minor awesome touches like that. And yeah, a cameo of Jack T. Chance would be AWESOME; I could probably forgive flaws if they did something wicked like that.

It doesn't look like a Green Lantern Uniform. The black and white made stark contrasts to make the green stand out, despite the sci-fi trappings, this is fairly boring to me. It has very few interesting things about it, and the mask is far too angular, especially around the nose (it should be shorter on the nose, only covering the bridge, otherwise it looks too much like a beak). I like the idea of the "nano-wire", for lack of a better term, lines, but I wish there was some variety to the suit.

Looks a bit odd to me... Not too bad, though.

Eh, I've never really been a Green Lantern fan in the first place. So... eh.

Also... Ryan Reynolds? Isn't he supposed to be in the Deadpool movie as well?

It looks alright.

Note* Am I the only one who noticed the "The new Buffy" on that cover?

Don't lie. You want it to be true.

To me it looks almost like the green lines could pulse with energy, which is a nice touch. The mask, however, is a little ridiculous. Hopefully that's just the angle of the shot or some bad photo editing.

Pfft, Hahaha!

That looks stupid as hell.

Plus, the actor, Ryan Reynolds looks like Will Ferrell. Therefore, I cannot take this Green Lantern seriously.

It looks like crysis's nano suit

there you are not alone.

I was just thinking the same thing, just look at all these nitpicks. I'm a Green Lantern Fan and I'm perfectly fine with this.

I'm more concerned about some of the people who they have as these new super heroes. Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogan. These are not haha jokey laugh roles that they've been asked to play. I suppose I'll have to wait and see if they treat the roles with the respect that they are due.

I kind of like it. The Green Lantern's traditional costume was pretty tame as far as super hero costumes went, but I think this fits just fine.

As many have said, it looks like a green-glowing Crysis nanosuit.

Its not bad, but just not good.

That's actually not that bad costume wise. But I have a problem with the actor, who ever that is.

Um....no.

Very much NOT like will Ferrell.

I think the designer wanted the actor to "wear the ring" instead of "wear the costume" which explains the direction of a 100% green suit and with all those lines heading towards the center of his chest.

Personally I think it is lazy for the following reason, it is literally him wearing a suit that looks like he was wearing a cheap medical muscle diagram. Every little part be it his chest, abs or shoulders look like as if he was wearing a those medical charts doctors learn about human muscle structure.

Other then his mask it's ok. The mask looks painted on and ,therefore, unatural looking.

I wouldn't be too quick to worry about that. Ryan Reynolds has done roles that aren't Van Wilder before, and he's done pretty well. Check out 'The Nines' and 'School of Life.' They're pretty good. Seth Rogan's character is a bit of a long shot, I'll admit. I don't really even like him as an actor myself, but considering The Green Hornet started as a radio show in the 1930s I don't really know anyone who would pull that off well now. Or anyone that would watch it, for that matter.
