As it’s been previously reported, Warner Bros. has started production on a feature-length film adaptation of DC Comics’ Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds cast as Hal Jordan.
What you don’t know is we won’t be getting any pictures of him in full costume anytime soon — or technically ever, according to /Film Editor Peter Sciretta, who states that he has three independent sources confirming that the GL suit will be mostly computer generated.
The suit that Ryan wears on set is a grey tracking motion/performance capture suit with led lights. I’ve heard that Ryan Reynolds has been joking on set that Warner Bros is going to make him into a Na’vi when the final cut is released. His joke, not mine. The Green Lantern suit you will see in the final film will be almost entirely created using computers.
This isn’t too big of a deal to me as I’m just happy that the Green Lantern project staring Jack Black never came into existence and by default anything in comparison is infinitely better. Still, Peter points out that Ngila Dickson, the costume designer for the film, has several accolades to her credit, like The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
