Green Lantern – Description Of The Suit, Power Ring and Battery
We saw an image of Ryan Reynolds in the all CGI Green Lantern suit a while back. It did look a bit weird, but could work on the big screen. Since then we haven’t seen or heard much more regarding the look of the suit.
The Daily Blam have apparently seen some new images from the film and have described the look of the suit some more. It turns out those green lines all over it are there for a reason. They do say that fans of the comic need not worry and we will see our first Green Lantern trailer with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 in November.
* Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) does not don the suit until his first trip to the planet Oa; which takes place when his power ring acknowledges his need for training after he creates his first construct on Earth.
* When the suit, which is created out of a “hard light” construct from the power ring, is in its solid form, the mask, boots, shoulders, chest, abdomen and back are a distinct, rich green, while the arms, legs and waist areas are a deep black.
* The suit has definitive lines which segregate the green and black colors.
* The glowing, green textured lines which encompass the suit fluctuate in intensity as Jordan gains more control over the power ring, which channels his willpower. The more focus he has, the less it “bleeds” energy.
* The front, green section of the suit does not extend below and around Jordan’s crotch as depicted in many of the older comic books. Instead, it ends in a sharp point at the base of his abdomen in the modern fashion.
* When flying, or traveling through space, the suit emits a faint green glow around the ring bearer. Jordan flies, of his own will, many times throughout the film.
* The ring is comprised of a solid silver band. Over its front, a translucent green attachment is centered with a jewel which visibly “flows” with energy.
* The individual power batteries each Lantern Corp member carries are much different from the comics’ versions. These are mostly comprised of the same green, translucent material which covers the power ring. The handle of the battery is squared off, and immobile. A large jewel rests at its center as well.
* An inscription around the jewel appears to be the Green Lantern Oath, which each member of the Corps must recite to charge their rings.
Sounds very nice indeed.
