green lantern filming 3d Green Lantern Set Pics Reveal Logo (and Ring?) Design

Following the first batch of Green Lantern set photos (including one which gave us a possible first look at Abin Sur’s spaceship), we have a few more photos from the set thanks to the guys over at SuperHero Hype.

Before we get to the photos, here’s the official synopsis for the Green Lantern as IMDb has it:

A test pilot is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.

The film stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, a.k.a. Green Lantern. Co-starring is Blake Lively as our green hero’s love interest; Mark Strong as his mentor Sinestro; Angela Bassett, Jay O. Sanders (who we saw in a previous set photo), Jon Tenney and Temuera Morrison.

Unfortunately the new photos are nothing overly spectacular, just a pics of sets being erected for unidentified scenes (although, a couple of them feature the GL symbol). But still, I’m sure for those of you looking forward to the Green Lantern movie (which I’m guessing is most of you) new set photos are always welcome, no matter what they depict.

Now let’s take a look at the four latest set photos of Green Lantern:

If you pay close attention to the photos, there is one gem worthy of note: The Green Lantern label displayed on the set pieces offers our first potential look at the movie’s logo design – perhaps even the design of rings and/or Central Power Battery of Oa, which is the ultimate power source of the Green Lanterns. Take a second look and tell us what you think.

Those of you who hoping to get a set pic of Ryan Reynolds in the Green Lantern suit will be waiting for a long time: it was recently revealed that the suit will be almost entirely CG, as Reynolds was recently snapped on the set wearing a motion tracker suit.

Until we get official stills we’ll have to make do with these sort of set photos.

BONUS: Green Lantern comic book writer and newly anointed DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns recently sat down for his regular talk with Comic Book Resources and had this to say about the current state of the Green Lantern movie:

The movie looks fantastic. I’m heading back down to New Orleans in a few weeks, but I just watched the Abin Sur/Hal Jordan dailies, and it’s amazing seeing that ring passed to Hal in live action. Abin Sur looks kick-ass.

They did such a great job. They’ve got Grant [Major] as a production designer. He’s from “Lord of the Rings,” and the visuals on this film are nothing like you could imagine. It’s definitely a Green Lantern fan’s dream. For me, it’s kind of insane to see this stuff come to life.

And Ryan Reynolds is a perfect Hal Jordan. He brings a lot of humor to it, but he also has the humanity that Hal has. And a little bit of the arrogance, so it’s a great match.

Johns also drops some hints about the status of certain other DC Comics movies – but for that info you’ll have to check out the interview with Comic Book Resources.

Green Lantern is being directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and hits theaters on June 17th, 2011.

  1. woot wooot looks great

  2. The ring appears to be some sort of mineral or stone. In fact the middle actually looks like a nicely carved Emerald or a similar rock.

    This is… highly incorrect to say the least. The Green Lantern ring is supposed to be an alien object (or entity, if you will) that contains dense power, giving its user control of the physical world around him (if he has the will to do so).

    This insignia not only looks crafted, but very common, or human made even. To think that the Guardians Of The Universe made the most powerful weapon in the Universe to look like a badly carved stone with an Emerald glued to it, is most inaccurate to the source material.

    1) This is only my opinion, of course. This is a very subjective topic.
    2) This may very well just be the movie logo alone, leaving the design of the ring itself to be completely different from this.

  3. Might be so about the logo, but if not, I think the design makes some kind of since. Such as the core of all the Green Lanterns come from a gem that gives off the Lantern energy, so the gem in the ring would make some kind of since. Otherwise I got nothing, I;m just too much of a fan to disrespect the ring, ya know?

  4. Sounds cool still not sold on Rynolds as GL. He is a great actor and I'm a big fan just don't consider him right for the part. I could be wrong he certainly isn't the worst recent casting choice that would be Captain America with Chris Evans.

    On a side not I enjoy the GL comics, but if you really sit down and read the synopsis for the film not thinking of the comic it really sounds horrible lol. I know that's what the story is about and it works watching it unfold just reading it in a simple paragraph though makes it sound like a lame B movie lol.

  5. Incidentally, the ring contains no gems, rocks or diamonds of any kind. It is a whole “apparatus” of its own, The power comes from the bearer's will, and the overall energy of the ring as a whole. It is not a crafted pearl or Emerald attached to a rare ring.

    As a movie logo, it is acceptable- and even nice looking, dare I say cool. But as the actual art for the ring itself- I see it as an inaccurate version of the original, and even contradicting to the origins of it. Unless of course they completely change the backstory of how the ring came to be.

  7. Off the subject of GL, but on the subject of DC, I thought it would be an excellent idea for the upcoming Superman films to include these actors that could be good candidates for the characters:Tom Welling (or Josh Harnett) as Superman, Rachel McAdams as Louis, Ralph Fiennes as Luthor, Daniel Craig as Brainiac, Jake Weber as Metallo, Laurence Fishburne as Darkseid (in mocap suit of course), and the voice and likeness of Ray Winstone as Doomsday.

    Just needed to spout that out to someone.

  8. I don't really understand… what exactly is the ring meant to look like? Is it meant to look like an emerald, or be made of the same (metallic?) material as the rest of the ring, which seems to be some sort of manifestation of “will”? I'm not too knowledgeable in regards to Green Lantern lore, but couldn't they just made it *look* like a metal ring with an emerald in it, but preserve the “manifestation of will” idea? I mean… what do you actually want it to look like?

  9. No worries. I have read the comics, so I may fill you in, my friend:

    Your second suggestion was correct, the ring is one as a whole. Not part emerald and part stone, as this design suggests. The ring is supposed to look like no human ring, obviously a powerful glow. But the design, which is what you asked about- should be an APPARATUS, ran by actual energy. Not a stone, or a jewelry alloid.

    Again, although the rings are the most powerful entities in the Universe, they are powered and ran by the person that wears it's WILL power.

    The Guardians created them, to have heroes wear the power rings and keep safety in the Universe. They divided the universe into 3600 sectors and each sector is guarded by two Green Lanterns, men worthy of wearing the power rings.

    The rings are like small “machines” that can only be used every 24 hours, to limit the power of the owner.

    Hopefully in the movie, it wont have such a silly flaw such as the one the comics had: in the comic book's the Power Ring's only weakness was anything yellow. Yes, anything yellow was immune to their power. Which was utterly ridiculous.

  10. Well, a couple of set pics from a few weeks back show Ryan wearing something green on his hand. If not green, then it's at least a dark color, unlike the greyish silver shown here. So I doubt this design will be for the actual ring.

  11. i think you'll find that ONLY hal jordans ring was faulted by yellow – leading in to the whole sinestro and then parralax as far as i can tell anyway, and after parallax was destroyed and after the blackest night saga the yellow impurity is gone
