G-Man, Ryan Reynolds is going to be Hal Jordan in next year's Green Lantern movie and we have seen a few pics of the ring and a he made the cover of Entertainment Weekly in the CGI rendered suit. Well, Daily Blam! has got some Detailed Descriptions of the Suit, the Ring and the Power Battery in the movie, and apparently "they are all closely modeled after the comics."
Here's the details they had:
- 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.
Like I said I am not an expert in this range of stories but as far as I can tell they are trying to incorporate a lot of the comics as much as possible into the movie. Also as far as constructs go this is what the site said about it:
As for constructs, fans will be happy to know that the filmmakers have gone to great lengths to include many complex ones; aside from the basic shields, swords and power blasts which are featured as well. Though several of these may not make it into the final cut of the film, I have seen designs for a Semi truck, dune buggy, fighter jet and anti-aircraft gun.
This is very interesting especially since the production of this movie seems to be getting the comic book treatment the right way, but we can't really be sure until the movie comes out, or at least the trailer is released.
What do you all think? Is your hype meter going off the charts right now?
The Green Lantern movie is scheduled to be released on June 17th, 2011.
