With production for the Green Lantern movie well underway, bits and pieces of information are beginning to leak out. One of the cooler pieces of info that has managed to come out is that star Ryan Reynolds will not wear an actual suit — his Green Lantern suit will be CG!
According to people who have seen the shoot, Reynolds has been wearing a gray motion capture suit, which bolsters the suspicion about the CG costume.
There is already an explanation about this very interesting turn of events. The reasoning is that since the costume is not really a costume but a manifestation of the ring’s power, the suit should look otherworldly and unreal. It does jive with the comicbook lore so I think the guys behind Green Lantern are actually taking the right direction for the movie.
I can’t wait to see how the “power” suit will look on the big screen.
