    I really like this. It is interesting how their personalities and occupations (Stewart being an architect, Rayner being an artist) make their constructs more unique.

    It's gotta be practical. I thought a CG suit was a cool idea back before the Reynolds movie hit, just due to the nature of being a construct of the ring, but the execution just didn't do it for me, and the more I watch MOS, I think I feel the same way about the battle armor in that film. Just save whatever money would go into making that kind of stuff and put it elsewhere. If anything, I think CG should be used to accent the suit, rather than be the whole of it.

    I agree with this all the way. I think that if they took the body suit from MOS and added the mo cap to it, it would look fantastic! The Reynolds design was not bad, it just didnt give him that buff, superhero look. Accent a padded suit like the MOS suit WITH THE CGI!! Then it would look awesome!

    The CGI suit honestly wasn't the problem. It was the CGI mask that ruined it. The thing had ZERO definition. There was no weight to it, and the white eyes...while it may have seemed like a good idea, didn't work in any way, shape, or form. I've always wanted to see what a mask would look like with white lenses similar to what is in Daredevil's mask just white instead of red. It may not work, but I wanna see how it would come off.

    Should that also reflect their costumes? (non cgi)

    I would like to see actual clothing rather than tights for the Lanterns for a change. I mean like Star Wars or Star Trek. Have Guy Gardener wear an actual jacket and pants. With the normal suits or whatever they choose to wear having the logo on it. It would be a drastic of a change but I wouldn't mind it.

    Definitely no CGI this time. When I saw the suit last time that was my first clue things weren't working out.

    I reckon look to Mass Effect for ideas of how it should all look

    Practical or otherwise, it's still going to be enhanced in post.

    I don't mind "classic" looking Hal, just change the mask and the gloves a bit.

    Indeed. It was one of the few highlights of the movie. The suits were amazing. I'm all for it.
    I agree with C.Lee, it should look like it's the same designer than for Batman and Superman. This is also another reason. The GL's suit from the film looked alien to me, like no human mind made it. I think it's the goal of it all.

    Constructs can definitely look a bit silly.
    They can work though
    I don't think anybody saw the magic shields and whatnot in doctor strange as silly.

    IMO all they need to do is avoid the more ridiculous objects(gatling guns,hockey sticks, and cars)
    Keep them simple and vague in shape.
    I think them looking more chaotic and unstable would make them less cartoony.

    For the costume I'd want them to completely ditch the idea of it coming from the ring.
    That just doesn't work honestly.
    Keep it practical.
    Make it some sort of alien organic material that forms around his body.
    Like a symbiote.
    Practical suit though.

    Practical suit, at most have the green parts glow when he's actually using his powers but that's it. The CGI is unnecessary for the suit, save that for his constructs, the suit doesn't need it.

    It's amazing how Dc has sat on these characters and failed to deliver successful box office.

    i mean, looking at Dr Strange - that's just a wizard looking Green Lantern. GotG - more GL universal characters. A talking racoon and tree... c'mon.

    Captain America - superman.
    Tony Stark - Bruce Wayne.
    Thor - Martian Manhunter, even Aqua man.
    Quicksilver - flash
    Black Widow - cart woman... agh man it's just annoying.

    WB can't get the freaking Justice League right, but you wonder why they can't get someone like Green Lantern right.

    Where do think the organic material would come from and be stored.

    It COULD actually come from the ring.
    Just not as a construct.
    It can just be stored in it somewhere and creep out over his body like a symbiote.

    Or some other containment can be invented for the movie.

    I cop is givin a gun and a uniform:o

    Oh yeah a REAL mask. Just cut the front off of Batman’s mask with the nose and paint it green and there you go. BTW his eyes should illuminate with green energy.
