Ryan Reynolds accompanied new “Green Lantern” footage at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday, and he came prepared to discuss reactions to his costume for the movie. He also presented an off-the-cuff explanation of why it looks the way it does.
“Well, the ring basically is a biological manifestation of its wearer, and that’s the mythology that we’re sticking to, and that’s the mythology Geoff Johns wants to stick to, and I completely agree with him,” Reynolds told MTV News.
As far the complaints that have emerged since the suit was revealed, Reynolds would prefer that his outfit be discussed in passionate fanboy arguments than not be talked about at all.
“There has to be a little healthy debate about it,” he explained. “I mean, that’s important. If it were just slanted one way or the other, I don’t think it would be that satisfying. And truthfully, we’ve only seen a tiny glimpse of the suit, you know, we haven’t seen it in motion. And we haven’t seen the full suit as well.”
One part of the traditional suit will remain absent, though, even as more pictures come to light.
“The white gloves aren’t there, and I think that’s fine, because specifically they’re lame,” he said. “But everything else is gonna be there, and I think the fanboys and the people that are new to the character are gonna love it.”
