  1. I, too, like it until you get to the feet. They just look odd. Hopefully it’s just the way they look in this picture. Not a deal breaker, just odd..in a distracting way. Maybe the outfit can change as Hal becomes better at wielding it. If you look at Sinestro’s costume, it looks more like an costume than a green layer of his skin – his outfit seems to have more seams and design elements.

    Perhaps the users of the ring can modify their outfits as they grow as a Lantern? Maybe it’s a focus thing. I dunno.

    I doubt we’ll see much of his feet upclose in the movie. Still, an odd choice…

  2. hmmm… interesting, I’m guessing they did the toes because the costume’s supposed to be very organic and form fitting (that’s probably why you can see his belly button too) of course by that logic we should be able to see his junk as well, interestingly though the ring knows how to appease the FCC

  3. is it just me or is his head to big for his body?

    The feet don’t bother me, the suit is organically wrapping around his muscles… boots would be odd.

  4. I am not crazy about the ‘bio suit’ look, but it makes more sense than a “costume” in a three dimensional medium with a quasi scientific setting. If the costume is supposed to be an interpretation of the bio-mechanics of the wearer, then those bootless feet make perfect sense. I have to give them credit for following that logic with the musculature, belly button, toes, etc.

    @ Rodrigo:Yes, the ring magically knows which body parts are taboo for each species and hides Hal’s junk accordingly. Butt cracks, camel toes, and nipples will be likewise hidden for humanoid Lanterns. But dear God, imagine the bio suits if they approached it like Zack Snyder’s Dr. Manhattan?!?!

  5. I like it but I have to say I’m missing the projected Lantern icons from his chest that I believe Van Scriver added.

    That said, this movie has my sword and my axe at this point.

  6. Antonio Sanciolo on

    I still can’t get past the mask. Looks like someone’s added it on in MS Paint.
    Is there any possibility of having a silver age style costume work on screen?
    It seems nowadays there’s only the option of leather battle armour or sfx tour-de-forces.

  7. The costume would have been perfect if not for the feet.

    I understand the rationale behind it…or not really. There’s really no need for feet in the GL costume.

  8. Katzedecimal on

    Feet…. then the eye is drawn back to the inexplicably thick shadow over the groin and the brain realizes that GL is running around scarpers in a costume made of sheer willpower (sorry about that, I’m a Rogues fan as well, punning is a pre-req) If he ever gets K.O’d, the paparazzi will have a field day.

  9. Green Lanterns have boots not stockings. No white gloves and no boots. I know the movie company and DC probably think “oh this is cool. This is new or a new take on it.” If it is working why fix it to be something that is distracting like that.
