This is easy!

Three movies, Three costumes:

Movie 1
He's the greatest of all Green Lanterns and a mentor figure to Hal.

Movie 2
He's disgraced and banished to the anti-matter universe, without his ring his clothes resort to normal, the silver-age Blue/black oufit (Like secret origins). Once there he hooks up with the Weaponers of Quard.
He comes back with his yellow ring looking for vengeance.

Green. Have his fall from grace into Hal's ultimate enemy be the sequel. In that one, I prefer the yellow costume.

I said Yellow but I agree with Lobo.

he obviously needs to start in green. then maybe after his downfall, you'll see him in the blue outfit, but once he gets his yellow ring he has the yellow outfit.

He wears a Green Lantern uniform throughout the entire movie.

He starts off with green but half way he switches over to the blue when he turns.

From what I recall, Sinestro doesn't turn in the movie.

Nope, he doesn't. That will be part two.

I say skip the blue costume. The evil elf look was always pretty lame. I say, for the movieverse, his history should be condensed. Have him sporting the Green GL uniform until he is banished, and when he eventually returns from exile, it's as leader of the Sinestro Corps, wearing the yellow costume.

This would be the best way to go.

Like Keyser said, he shouldn't really where a "costume" in the period between his exile from the Corps and his acquisition of the yellow ring. However, once he gets the yellow ring, then he should obviously have the yellow costume. Skip the blue entirely. Sinestro finally has a good look, so they should use it.

However, I think there should be a period where he has the ring but not his own Corps; the idea to create a Corps should be a revelation that comes to him after an initial defeat, or something like that. I think it would be really cool to see him discover this yellow wavelength of power at the edge of the universe (sort of the way Kyle discovered the nature of Parallax in Rebirth), and build the ring himself. Following that, he'd impulsively rush back for revenge, not thinking things through. Then, after his defeat, with a cooler head he would realize that he has the resources necessary to build his own army. Alternatively, his initial solo attack, instead of being about hot-headed revenge, could simply be driven towards releasing Parallax from the central battery, thus giving him the power source he needs to fuel said army. That would be the second movie; the third might be what Blackest Night appears to be--Hal and Sinestro joining forces against a superior enemy.

I also hope they don't cop-out and change his physical appearance in order to make him less "silly." It's true, he has often looked ridiculous in the comics, but in the last few years artists have come along who have made him look really intimidating. The way he's drawn now--uniform, body language, lighting, and even his Hitler haircut--makes him look like a really scary, ominous enemy, instead of like a pink Mr. Spock. I think it's be demonstrated quite clearly that you can make him look awesome without making him less silly... if that makes sense.

I heard Sinestro was going to appear at the very end of the movie, after Hal Jordan saved the Earth and is called away to Oa. But he should always appear in the GL costume. After that, he needs his Sinestro Corps uniform. The Jester uniform just sucks butt.

Ya we def need to see the Sinestro Corps, Id like to see something along the lines of in the first film and like beginning of the second various criminals being rounded up. Then like the ending of the second film we see the criminals escape and gather to become the Sinestro Corps to set up the third movie.

Good points, but I actually think that, after his exile, his Corps should come first.

One really clever thing Geoff Johns did in his run was, he resurrects Sinestro in Rebirth, brings him back into play.... then takes him off the table for 20 issues. With Sinestro a totally unseen presence during this time, we got about a year's worth of buildup, seeing the formation of the Sinestro Corps, seeing rings seeking out various menacing beings from across the universe. And when Sinestro finally DID re-emerge - dressed in his new yellow uniform, backed by a fearsome army - the anticipation for his return was through the roof.

I think they could do something similar with the films. Sinestro is exposed and exiled, then he slips back into the shadows, quietly forming his own army as he plans his revenge.

I think his the story of his fall should be told little by little through the movie showing him in green. Then at the end of the movie reveal him in yellow to pump him up for the sequel.

That brings up another question. Should Sinestro's fall happen in the first film, with him returning as the villain for the sequel, or should the fall and his emergence as villain all happen within the space of the second film?

While I like the role Sinestro played in the first draft of the script, with his darkness merely foreshadowed, part of me would like to see a Gone Baby Gone type ending, with Sinestro in the Morgan Freeman role and Hal Jordan in the Casey Affleck role. Set up some legally right VS morally right scenario, where Sinestro is almost justified in his actions, but Hal goes the legally right route and reports him to the Guardians, leading to his exile as the film draws to a close. Which, of course, would set the stage nicely for him to be the villain in part 2.

Interesting point. That said, whether he returns with the Corps initially or not, I really would like to see him seeking out the power and making his ring. I think that's the perfect window to tell the audience about the emotional spectrum, and an opportunity for some sci-fi goodness to boot. Sci-fi goodness is in short supply; I need as much ancient discovery on the edge of the universe as I can get.

it's weird that in some pix, Sinestro has pointy ears, and in others, he doesn't.

Green in the first movie of course.

If they introduce the Qwardians than I can see Sinestro wearing the blue suit, seeing as that is a Qwardian uniform.

If they skip the Qwardians for the most part then he should skip directly to the Sinestro Corp uniform.

Oddly enough -- remember when the Sinestro Corp. was first starting up and the teasers had the whole corp wearing the blue collared uniforms?

Like others have said, start with green and go with yellow. I do want to see sinistro's evilness hinted at or showed to us viewers during the film. Then at the end its revealed to the guardians/corps and he is thrown out. So then it leads to him returning in sequel with yellow ring and all that.

Green. I want to see his relationship in the Corps and with Jordan portrayed before he gets booted. Maybe an ancillary plot dealing with Korugar and the result of Sinestro's hardline approach. Then, ship his ass off to Qward and bring on the yellow as he comes into full villain/arch-nemesis status.
