NOT a Costume?

I've just heard through the proverbial grapevine, that Ryan Reynolds is NOT...I repeat NOT actually going to wear the costume in the new Green Lantern film. Instead, it is all going to be generated apparently, through CGI.

I...I hardly know what to think about this. On the one hand, I can't believe that they can't whip up something nice and tight in the rear. On the other hand, since the costume itSELF is ring-generated, I suppose that in a strange sort of way, it makes sense to have it be Computer-generated.

Whatever it ends up being, I sure do hope that they stick with the basics, and make it black and green, with the white gloves. It is practically the perfect costume...and there's no reason at all to go messing around with it.

Just make sure that it's form-fitting. VERY form-fitting.

So, does this mean Ryan Reynolds is being filmed naked so they can more accurately render the CGI costume over him? :-)

That's a "Making Of" film I WANT to see.

Can't wait for the uncensored director's cut! ;-)

Just as long as we can't tell if he's circumcised, I'm fine with whatever they put on him.

I actually think it's kind of brilliant. It saves us from having to see a GL costume that is eithr made from spandex (correct sihouette, but always looks kind of cheesy on film) or molded leather (which would justbe wrong for GL). This could be the absolute best way to capture a superhero costume on film. In addition... since I assume we'll have some fully CGI characters (like, say, Kilowog), this way Hal's costume will look like it's made of the same "material"/construct as a rendered character.

Only time will tell, but I'm hopeful.

So Ryan Reyonds inst man enough? Wasn't he just complaining about the costume a little while ago? Maybe it'll be ok like Moriarty said...I just didn't like CGI Spiderman. Then again, I'm never hopeful about anything. Blue Lantern Corps material I am not...

Much as I'd dearly love to give an opinionated, er, opinion on this, I really can't tell if this is better than having an actual costume or not. Guess we'll have to wait for the movie to see.

I guess it depends on the script (what Ryan will be doing), because certain lightnings make spandex and leather look bad.

Or Ryan doesn't feel like working out for the entire duration. Maybe he got to shoot the GL bits near the back end of the shoot?

Verification is ventic, which may be appropriate if Sea's version of filming is correct.

Uh, from what I've seen, Mr. Reynolds needn't worry about his physique. He is already QUITE an impressive physical specimen. I suspect the CGI costume is due to the filmmakers wanting the film to appear as authentic as it can -- well, as authentic as a super-hero movie CAN be (since super-heroes are inherently absurd, anyway). Certainly the director is known for preferring authenticity in his screen heroes, as he did for James Bond and Zorro. And I know Warner Bros. is keen to have another successful, "realistic" franchise, like Chris Nolan's Batman.

It would be neat if they could make the glowing aura around Hal when he flies...and stuff like that.

Liss, we can be in the Pessimism Corps. Our colors are grey, and our entity is Eeyore.

I LOVE Eeyore!

Yes! Eeyore! Muhaha. Our symbol should be a half-empty glass.

We have rings, but don't bother to use them much, because really...what's the point?
