What do you want to see the planet look like?

I've been doing research for a Fan Trailer I'm working on and it seems to be pretty vague as to what the planet actually looks like.

I've seen it described as a desert world, but then I see some pictures that have a green aura around the planet with the lantern logo hovering over the surface.

What do you experts think?

That's not Oa, that's Mogo, the planet Green Lantern. :woot:

HA!
I knew about Mogo, but I guess someone has mislabeled some pictures. :rolleyes:

A model of Oa with the central power battery.

Oa is a regular green planet. The central battery is located in the Cidadel's center.

Just have a normal planet with buildings made of yellow in the first movie. Then, in the sequel the Guardians shield it in a giant Lantern battery (as a reaction to Legions attack in GL1)

The planet Oa has been shown as other colors (gray and blue). It is not necessarily green. The Citadel on the other hand is a different story.

Oa is a regular planet, with (to me anyways) one large city on the entire planet, made with yellow buildings. Of course you also have to add in the giant central power battery.

So if I were to depict the planet surface...would it be basically Coruscant right?

The video didnt work. But still, I think that Oa should be like a bunch of different planets from Star Wars. It could incorporate Naboo, Hoth, Endor, or even Dagobah. The combination of all those into one planet could be really cool.

I think Oa should like this on film.

no its oa from batman brave and the bold i believe.

protocida

Yes, it's from "The Brave and the Bold".

Wouldn't work in a movie.

Webhead2006

yea i think maybe like someone else said make it a mixture of star wars planets with high tech buildings and everything green with the huge central battery in the center of the main city on oa.

Fixed it, but here it is again!

I was wondering could any one post some pics of Oa from the comics over the eras?

I have literally never understood why Mogo isn't Oa.

Webhead2006
03-27-2009, 04:46 PM
probably because he is a living sentiant being.

I think I'm in the minority when I say that I don't think it should this completely green planet. Seems like going a bit overboard.

Then again, the way I imagine it is probably pretty bland compared to the other ideas being suggested. :oldrazz:

The Guard

probably because he is a living sentiant being.

In a sense. Wouldn't it make more sense storywise to have the Green Lantern's planet of origin be on a living, sentient being, as opposed to having a living sentient being who IS a lantern who generally does squat?

Changeling

That'd make a lot more sense. Btw, how was Mogo even trained? I mean what qualified him to be a GL? Did Kilowog train him or something?

protocida
03-27-2009, 09:27 PM
I don't think Mogo should be Oa. He's awesome the way he is now. I hope he's introduced in the sequel.

And I think Oa should be orange, because it's a desertic planet, like Tatooine.

Mogo is responsible for directing all the rings to the new members

Really? I never understood that whole idea...
DO you think he will be included in the movie?

Webhead2006
04-02-2009, 11:43 PM
probably not the first film i could see him maybe in a sequel.

Wesley Dodds
07-23-2010, 07:49 PM
Agreed. The second movie is the ideal place to introduce Mogo. The GA might feel a little overwhelmed as it is without bringing in the idea of a GL being a PLANET.
I'd like to see him name dropped, though.
