Something i've noticed over these last few months on these boards is a weird, unspoken division between us Lantern fans.
It seem we fall into two camps-
Those of us who want Hal to have his white gloves in the movie and those of us who dont.

Where do you stand on this issue?

Personally, i dont get people who dont want the costume to be as faithful as possible.
We've never seen Hal in live action before EVER! He's the only real mainstream hero left we can say that about... So let's see him! The proper him!
It's too early to start talking about altering the costume whenever most people haven't even gotten a chance to see the original yet. Especially when it's such a classic!
The white gloves are perfect for what Jordan is! A superhero? No. He's a space ranger... And the white gloves really add something to that!

Charlie Callas, i think they call him.

But, we're getting off topic. Why no white gloves?

Yes. Sinestro disguises himself as a female psychic and tries to read GL's hand in order to steal his ring.

White gloves would look corny. I prefer how GL is portrayed in the animated movie: Black gloves with green gautleds.

There we're priceles moments in that show:

- GL's scene.

- Solomon Grundy disguised as a speeding officer and using a magic cap provided by Mordru to make him look normal on the superheroes eyes. He randomly bumps into Batman, Robin, Hawkman, Captain Marvel and Black Cannary; and, ALL the times, he drops the cap and is forced to knock down the heroes and tie them on a abandoned warehouse nearby.

- The Riddler, disguised as Sigmund Freud, building a shrink's office in the middle of a park and Captain Marvel, tense after looking for a bomb, randomly stopping by and telling Riddler all his problems and aflictions.

- The interview with the recently engajed couple Atom and Giganta.

- Ghetto Man.

- Hawkman randomly standing up and screaming like an... well... An Hawk.

- The incredible Super Retired Man!

- Hawkman's mother telling his Superfriends how much of a troubled child he was.

- Mordru's musical number.

Here are some screencaps:

I think a large part of the problem is that whenever people hear white gloves they automatically picture nerds at comic-cons in their homemade GL costumes.
WB would pay the wardrobe dept. a lot of money to make sure the gloves dont look corny.
I think something like a thin, matte white leather would look pretty cool...

Aesthetically, the white gloves are a poor design, here you have a deep green and black suit then suddenly you have these two lumps of white standing out like dogs balls, I think the risk you run with adding white gloves in the movie is the character looking silly, even like a Power Ranger. The alternative is either black gloves, green gloves, or no gloves at all, really though, as long as the spirit of the GL costume is kept there should be no complaints.

D-Man22
04-13-2009, 05:04 PM
^Yeah I agree. Down with the white gloves. As I've said before the green gauntlets from the animated movie looks really good and they should use that for the live action suit.

However, I do have to say that Hal's costume is probably the best designed costume in the DC universe, or comic bookdom period.

This is a tough one I want to see the white gloves, but if they look that bad I would like what they did in the animate movie coming out. I'm sure they'll try them out but I would be surprised if they kept them for some reason.

The Guard
04-13-2009, 08:55 PM
Both.

The white gloves are special in a traditional sense. Their existence should be honored. So make them special in a traditional sense. In a sense that has something to do with honor. Think about it...when do you usually see white gloves that don't match the rest of a uniform?

Military ceremonies.

Hal should not wear white gloves for the majority of the film, he should wear black ones. He should, however, change his costume's gloves to white for an induction ceremony of sorts with the Guardians at the end of the film, to reflect his own military upbringing and the semi militaristic nature of the Corps.' So should the rest of the Green Lanterns.

Problem solved.

But hey, why stop at white gloves? The Green Lanterns should have outright "dress uniforms" to go with the gloves. This is a proud organization as much as any other.

Yea as much as it would be great to see white gloves done well, it probably visually wont be the best option to go. Either fully black gloves of the black gloves/green guadlets.

No it doesnt. Epecially whenever the rest of the costume is green and black too.
The white makes the ring more distinctive.

Also they could look cheap in real life...and the costume also works very well without white.

I'm a fan myself, but White Gloves just wouldn't be taken seriously. I'm all for black gloves/green gautleds.

Wesley Dodds

Thats like saying a yellow utility belt wouldnt be taken seriously in a Batman film.

It all depends how it's done, and a pair of thin, matte, white leather/plastic gloves would look cool.

Besides, there's the whole "Wouldn't white gloves get dirty?" problem. I know, black gloves would too, but it wouldn't be *very* perceptive.

Wesley Dodds

Yeah, but all movie costumes get dirty. Especially stunt heavy action movies like this... Just wash them. The costume dept. will no doubt have many, many pairs too.

Yeah but we only saw that yellow utility belt what 2 and half movies? Cause half way through Batman Forever he changed it to the same color of the suit, and Clooney wore the same type.
Bale wears a dark gold belt, and really looking at some pics of Batman Returns that belt is gold as well.
So really they only two live action Bat films were the yellow belt is seen is from the 60's and in Batman 89.

Anyways I'm all for black with green gaunlets, or all green gloves

Wesley Dodds
04-14-2009, 07:57 PM
So what? Point is they still used it and it worked... Unless of course, you prefer what they traded that costume in for... You have a thing for nipples on the batsuit?
We all know how that worked out...

protocida
04-14-2009, 08:03 PM
Bale's belt, as stated, was dark gold. Besides, that's kinda different from gloves.

Wesley Dodds
04-14-2009, 08:07 PM
Okay, so if they did a Flash movie would you want them to get rid of the yellow boots?
It's the same thing... Flash's boots dont match his gloves either but it's a classic costume design. Just like Green Lantern, and you dont mess with a classic costume design.

protocida
04-14-2009, 08:10 PM
Flash's costume was awesome in The Flash, and he whore red boots.

Have you seen First Flight's Costume Design? I think it's perfect for a movie.

C'mon, Prot! Your citing the John Wesley Shipp tv pilot? The one were he takes on an evil gang of bikers? Look, i like it as much as the next guy but it's very much a guilty pleasure... If they did a proper Flash flick i would want it to be a heck of a lot more faithful than that!

No white gloves, at least right now.

If the costume designer and production designer manage to incorporate white gloves into Hal's suit without making it look ridiculous, then that's a different story.

I do think the makers should try and make their movie GL a bit different, suit-wise. A pair of muted green gloves with white edging (or black gloves with green gaunlets) would do just as good.

well those where just concept work, and if i recall that artist isnt on the project anymore i think. But Yea they will probably end up somewhere mixing white gloves/black-green guadlets. Hopefully they find the right suit materials and have costume look good. I would like to see a spider-man film translation for gl keep it faithful while adding some slight modifications.

The white gloves should be kept. You're talking about a movie where you have insanely weird looking alien Corps members, and you think white gloves are unbelievable?

I'm not against all changes to the costume, but especially in a movie where you're whipping through space, the constrast of white on a black space background would look quite good.

For me it is very simple : I love the white gloves but I think the black gloves are better, from a visual point of view, the ring is very apparent on them. And Something that bugs me is that they are the GREEN Lantern Corps, the white gloves kind of distract from the whole green picturality of the Corps. I would go with black gloves.
But I want to add that, for me, all corpsmen should have a almost identical uniform. so as long as there is unity in the corps, I'm ok, even with white gloves. I like them, I do not find them corny at all, and I could live with it.

And about the boots of Barry Allen in the Flash ? I agree with some of you : red boots are really really neat ! The costume was great. Hard to make better.

I agree with you on everything except for the identical uniforms, and I know you did say "almost identical" but to me that is one thing I love about the comics, almost every front character that we see has a different uniform on.

What they should do is copy from the current run about new recruits. When someone gets recruited in to the GLC everyone has the same uniform, and I think that when they earn their Lantern symbol they have the option to customize their uniforms as long as the color scheme and the symbol were present

protocida

I like the idea of the semi-identical uniformes, like a real police force.

Mutagen

Not every creature in the galaxy would be exactly what the Corps imagine they could be, I mean they might have entirely different personalities, appearances.

That, and around the world cops have different uniforms, they are only bounded to the look of their sector, much like how I feel the movie should adapt.

protocida
04-24-2009, 07:49 PM
Creatures with different shapes would obviously have modified uniforms, but the GL simbol is obligatory. And I think all the humanoid members (Hal, Sinestro, Kilowog, Tomar-Re, Salaak...) should use a basic uniform. OK, there might be some individual detais, but not too much.

I disagree. it is something that bugs me in the comics. I suppose it is more fun from a artist point of view, but from a GL point of view, I disagree. I think the Corps should be very easy to identify, throughout the space, throughout the different sectors or species. Well I think Protocida summed it up perfectly :
Creatures with different shapes would obviously have modified uniforms, but the GL simbol is obligatory. And I think all the humanoid members (Hal, Sinestro, Kilowog, Tomar-Re, Salaak...) should use a basic uniform. OK, there might be some individual detais, but not too much.

Both have their lame suits.

Marvel has NAMOR, NAMOR, and NAMOR. Plus people dont' want to admit it, but Thor for a while looked cheesy until recently.Yeah, I never liked Thor's old outfit. What was with the sweatbands? He looks good now, thankfully.

As for white gloves? Keep them. It's not even a question. The "It'll look silly" argument is imaginary. It'll look no more silly than red and blue pajamas with webs all over them. The Green Lantern costume is a solid, three colour design, and it should stay that way.

In fact, there's no reason to change the patterning of the costume at all. Hal's updated costume (Rebirth-era) is absolutely ideal for film adaptation; material and texture work is all it needs. The shape of the green part of the uniform is perfect for translation into a vest or jacket, so once you pick a good texture and material for the rest of it, your work is done.

Of course, it doesn't absolutely have to be identical. Bunk's solution to the white gloves was great.

It's an old saying but it's a true one, what works on the page doesn't always work on the screen, especially with comics as many of the designs are impractical or are just too wild and colourful to look good in real life. The GL white gloves are a design flaw in the comics, they annoyingly stick out like a saw thumb, and if that's the case in the comics I can't imagine them being workable in live action. If white is needed as some have suggested, then an alternative is the use white as an accent on the costume, perhaps as on the collar or wrists. After all it is the Green Lantern, green should be the predominant colour.

I like green gloves personnally, I think it is good but I have the same "problem" than with the white ones, the ring does not "stand out". But well, ... it is green anyway.

Saint, I find it ironic that you think white gloves are more adaptable when you mentionned just before that the previous Thor suit was corny and that the new one is better ?! (you did not say corny specifically but you get what I mean).
You say "The "It'll look silly" argument is imaginary" but you just said you preferred the new Thor suit. I do not understand.
My taste are : black gloves are great. Movie or comics. Green gloves are good enough for me as white ones are. So for me it is not the most important thing.

What's not to understand? I didn't like that old costume (well, that's not entirely true: I liked the iconography, just not the fact that it was, well, tights) because it didn't look like something a figure of Norse myth would wear. Obviously, Thor is a superhero and should look the part, but the old costume did not express the other side of who he was to my satisfaction. The new one does. As for white gloves, well no one can honestly say "White gloves aren't what a space cop would wear," because we have no frame of reference for what a space cop would wear.

I just don't see the argument. It's a colour. In terms of design, it works just fine with the other colours and the costume has a great balance to it. The white gloves make the entire costume pop. If white gloves are, somehow, inherently silly or unacceptable for a character like Green Lantern to wear, then I'd love to hear why, because this eludes me.

It's the wrong part of the outfit that's popping though, the focal point on the outfit is always going to be those big long white gloves when it should be the GL logo, the colours work fine together, but it's the ratio of the colours that's the problem. It's a design flaw.

Saint

That's not what I said. I said the entire costume. Popping 'one part' isn't how it works; it makes the whole outfit pop. I'm sure that you know we call that unity.

the focal point on the outfit is always going to be those big long white gloves when it should be the GL logo,
Which is where the white recurs. This is hardly accidental. The hands are highlighted with good reason, also. The hands are just as important as the symbol, because the hands bear the ring and the ring is what makes Green Lantern.

the colours work fine together, but it's the ratio of the colours that's the problem. It's a design flaw.
Why? I disagree that the relationship between the colours over-emphasizes his hands. It creates a three-point relationship between the the core of design--the symbol--and the hands, which bear the character's power. The white is in exactly the places it should be.

Designer lends MAGNETO, GREEN LANTERN insights

Kilowog in the movie!

By Rob M. Worley October 06, 2008
Source: MTV Splash Page

You've seen character designer Aaron Sims' work in Incredible Hulk and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. And, if he has his way, you'll be seeing his work soon in the planned X-Men spin-off X-Men Origins: Magneto.

Although the film was hampered by the recent WGA strike, Sims told MTV Splash page the movie is now due for some rewrites. Like sister project 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', the Magneto movie will incorporate familiar Marvel mutants. However Sims is mum on who those characters will be and how they'll be presented.

"The fan base has a vision of what they should look like, and that’s always the challenge," Sims said. "It was the same with ‘The Hulk.’" Sims' designs for The Abomination in that movie were met with fan resistance.

Sims said that fans can expect the 'Magneto' movie to be dark and serious-minded.

"Remember the scene [from 'X-Men'] in the concentration camp where you see Magneto as a young boy? It just continues from there," Sims said. "Some people thought that might be too dark, but I really like that. It’s a lot of death and mayhem."

Sims also revealed that he's been busy with other projects, including matte paintings for The Spirit and work on the Green Lantern movie.

In what may be a revelation, Sims told Splash Page that he recently designed the suit for Kilowog, Hal Jordan's burly, non-human trainer in the Green Lantern Corps.

I've always been partial to Rayner's original symbol (though not with the colour split, obviously).

There's another one that I like that may be hard to describe... solid circle (as opposed to the ring/donut) with the bars on the top and bottom (not connected to the circle) curved to match the curve of the circle.

Preference for one doesn't mean distaste for another. I'd prefer grilled chicken over fried chicken, but I've been known to go straight to town on both.
hahaha. right. I agree but I tend to see bipolarisation of the debates here. I thought there were a parallel between Thor suit and a GL suit, you know superhero stuff, so that's why I was comparing his two opinions. But you're right, both chicken are fine. :woot:
What's not to understand? I didn't like that old costume (well, that's not entirely true: I liked the iconography, just not the fact that it was, well, tights) because it didn't look like something a figure of Norse myth would wear. Obviously, Thor is a superhero and should look the part, but the old costume did not express the other side of who he was to my satisfaction. The new one does.

I just don't see the argument. It's a colour. In terms of design, it works just fine with the other colours and the costume has a great balance to it. The white gloves make the entire costume pop.
I understand what you are saying now but in this case you can interrogate almost everything in the GL mythos, why should the guardians looks lie small dwarfs ? What does a green space cop look like ? What does a space cop look like in the first place ? As you said, it is a "design", created by those who created the book, so from an earthman designer point of view, why make the gloves white ? Green would be better visually. And even if it is not the case, in the end, the movie designer will have to choose from his perspective.
And even if I understand your point now, I would disagree about the God reference. I do not know what Thor looks like. what should a God look like ? Most God were with naked legs. Maybe it is even more stupid than tights but that's how most god are portrayed.
So, I was just saying that I found ironic that you could say what is wrong or right for a God and not for a space cop. That's all. I was not offensive or anything.
and as I said before, I prefer black gloves with green gauntlets, but I'm OK with green gloves or whites gloves. All is fine for me. The main problem for me is not just the gloves is the overall look. I do not want to seem close minded, but I don't want something original, I want something "classic", and by classic, I mean something from the comicbook.

If white gloves are, somehow, inherently silly or unacceptable for a character like Green Lantern to wear, then I'd love to hear why, because this eludes me. My point of view is that I prefer black glove with green gauntlets because it does not "break the visual of the black and green. But I am fine with white gloves, just the same. If it eludes you , please think about all who want the red trunks of Superman to go. the arguments are always the same : not realistic, not good on screen, does not feel real, looks silly, etc...
for me it is just visual I prefer the visuality of the JL animated GL more than the comicbook one. Seems more "consistent".

so from an earthman designer point of view, why make the gloves white ? Green would be better visually.
Explain why.

I would disagree about the God reference. I do not know what Thor looks like. what should a God look like ? Most God were with naked legs. Maybe it is even more stupid than tights but that's how most god are portrayed.
That's not the point: we have a frame of reference for the Norse culture. We know how those people dressed and we know how they imagined their Gods, so it gives us a starting point for designing new interpretations of those myths. Our version is not the same as their version, certainly, but our version is informed by their version.

So, I was just saying that I found ironic
I know exactly what you were saying, and I explained why what you were saying is not correct. There is no irony involved.

If it eludes you , please think about all who want the red trunks of Superman to go. the arguments are always the same : not realistic, not good on screen, does not feel real, looks silly, etc...

I'd love for the emblem to be 3 dimensional (unlike Superman's in SR which just looks like a peice of rubber glued to his chest.)

Do a combination of black and white gloves. Maybe black on the fingers and white on the palm. Make the gloves look durable. Not stretchy ones. Dirty them up a bit as well.

I think the white gloves look cool. They aren't far out there like Wolverine's mask or something, so I say keep them.

part of the reason why i'm leaning towards no white gloves is that colorwise it breaks the motif of green/black. but to not have anything on his forearms would be too bare so instead of full gloves, go with the green gauntlets.

but ultimately, if the costume dept is able to make white gloves work, then i'll all for it. its just that over the years seeing various designs from comics and manipers none of them could come up with an acceptable white glove design for Hal's costume without making him look like he's going to a tea party. i could see it as part of Guy Gardner's, but not on any other GL.

I think something like this could easily work.

I love that costume. White gloves, return of the crab mask, no dog collar. Kyle's finally got a costume that 1) actually looks like Green Lantern, and 2) is awesome. His other costumes only managed one or the other; not both. Also, crab mask forever.

That said, I don't think there's an particular reason to use that costume over Hal's. Hal's costume is quite ideal for translation to film.

Drakon
07-11-2009, 09:04 PM
I love it too, but I wasn't suggesting it for Hal. Just pointing out that a similar setup could work.

How about green gloves with parts of white?

Doctor Jones
07-12-2009, 12:15 PM
Yeah I don't think it will work with all white. But some white should be there. Like I said, black fingers and white palms could work.

And wouldn't having white gloves let the enemy see him from a distance?

Savage

So would glowing bright green. Besides, Green Lanterns can go invisible at will.

Dark Knight

As Green Lantern: First Flight shows us, the black/green comb works nicely, it's more "movie-esque" and it's fainthful to the comics. And there would still be the white elipsis in GL's chest.



Agreed!

Octoberist
07-13-2009, 02:50 PM
I think the Lantern logo in the chest should remain the same no matter what!

Wesley Dodds
07-15-2009, 07:05 PM
Yes!! Nobody should touch the logo. Ive been seeing a lot of RR manips lately and a lot of them have been good except the logo's been messed up...
The less said about the leaked concept art from a while ago, the better...

Octoberist
07-15-2009, 07:12 PM
i guess the good thing about the leaked concept art is that the artist who did it left the project a year ago.

I never saw it. Is it that bad?

They're pretty bad, yeah. I just had a look to see if i could find them to post here, but apparently i must've deleted them in disgust and forgotten about it...

I believe they're somewhere in the 'Post Your Favourite Green Lantern Pictures' thread, though...

it has that water down look that I dislike. again, kinda generic.

Wesley Dodds
07-15-2009, 07:53 PM
yep. People so clearly embarrassed by GL's real costume shouldn't be allowed to work on this movie.

Drakon
07-15-2009, 07:58 PM
That's what I thought it was. It's not HORRIBLE, but to me, it's almost too IRON MAN, and I'd rather not see it in a movie.

Saint

The light-up symbol in the concept art is unnecessary; Ethan Van Scrier has already engineered the perfect visual solution for the symbol: projected hologram.

Wesley Dodds
07-30-2009, 09:38 AM
I'd love it if they used Van Sciver's logo projection. But only every now and then... Like when he says the oath or something.

protocida
07-30-2009, 03:18 PM
That concept art was made under Greg Berlanti's order, to help his sell the movie to Warner Bros. It has never been considered for the actual suit.

The hologram would look goofy used constantly. Make it appear only when GLs say the Oath.

And use the Green Lantern: First Flight suit.

Ya their has probably been many ideas of suit designs hopefully we get a good look. Cant wait to see what they decide to do.

It looks cool in the comics but it would probably be an annoyance in real life. Not everything in the comics translates well onto film (case in point, white gloves).

Webhead2006

well i think with the right material/pattern a white glove could work, or only used for a small scene like a cereamony deal or what not.

Octoberist
07-31-2009, 12:13 PM
i've always liked the white gloves. I think people are overexgerating it, as if it's a mistake on the costume design or something.

I think it can be done well in the movie too.

protocida
07-31-2009, 12:15 PM
No white gloves, I hope.

Octoberist
07-31-2009, 12:19 PM
do you like the white gloves in general, or you just don't want them in the movie?

protocida
07-31-2009, 12:22 PM
In the movie.

Octoberist
07-31-2009, 12:24 PM
If it's like First Flight, then I'll be okay with it (black gloves).

I just don't want the costume to lose that 'superhero' look, like in the original concept art where the suit looks mundane and generic. So I do want the green to be a slightly bright green without making it look too hammy.

protocida
07-31-2009, 12:36 PM
I don't see the concept art as generic, but it's your call.

Did not see your reply Saint.
I don't know what this is supposed to mean. Interrogate?
Yeah I meant that everything in the GL mythos could be questionned. Never mind.
Explain why.
Because from a consistency point of view, a character dressed in black and green and black and green and WHITE seems a bit inconsistent. It is like having Superman with green boots.It would "break" the template. I'm aware that we are used to this white gloves, but I meant that in today's comics adaptations, they seem to want "realism" or sober things everywhere, and from this sober/consistent point of view the green gloves or the black one with green gauntlets, are better. That is all I was saying. As written before I enjoy both, I do not care if it is white or black/green, as long as the story is right, etc .... I like both. White is cool. Black/green is cool too. I just prefer a bit black gloves and green gauntlets.
That's not the point: we have a frame of reference for the Norse culture. We know how those people dressed and we know how they imagined their Gods, so it gives us a starting point for designing new interpretations of those myths. Our version is not the same as their version, certainly, but our version is informed by their version.
No, indeed, that was the point : The so-called "frame of reference" makes it more acceptable for the audience or the readers, but as I said, the depiction of Gods throughout history are not very charming. sometimes it is even more ridiculous than tights. I understand your point thus, but look at this : according to you, no one knows what a space cop looks like. OK. So the white gloves are possible , ok. I got it. But then, if we do the assimilation with the cops, should the uniform be the same ? I mean that GL has been created according to things that happens on earth (GL like cops, the supreme authority, the villain in jail, the law, etc ...), so why then not make the uniform more earthly consistent ? It would make sense. that is what I meant by "interrogate" the whole mythos. And again, I do not care if it is white or black, I like both, I was just talking about the comparison you made.
I know exactly what you were saying, and I explained why what you were saying is not correct. There is no irony involved. The irony was just in my opinion.
Not the same at all, since no one can explain how white gloves are "Not realistic" or "Not good on screen," and all that other nonsense.Yes it is the same, in a way. Because it is an adaptation, and right now most of them are down to earth / realistic crap. For me both are fine. Again. There were no offense at all in my comment.

so I'm going to quote myself, because I thought I was clear on the subject:
For me it is very simple : I love the white gloves but I think the black gloves are better, from a visual point of view, the ring is very apparent on them. And something that bugs me is that they are the GREEN Lantern Corps, the white gloves kind of distract from the whole green picturality of the Corps. I would go with black gloves.
I like the white gloves, I do not find them corny at all, and I could live with it.

Lack of white gloves? So totally not a big issue for me; I mean, it's not like there's been some kind of 'heinous liberty' taken or anything.

It's certainly not an affront to the character or the characters creators.
