Green Lantern Concept Art: Kilowog, Tomar-Re & Abin Sur

Only days after director Martin Campbell confirmed the appearances of three of the most well know Green Lanterns in the film, we get a taste of how they may look on screen.

Through a confidential source, Matt McGloin of CosmicBookNews.com has confirmed that these are in fact official concept art for the DC feature film Green Lantern.


Abin Sur & Tomar-Re




Kilowog




No actors have been linked to the roles yet, but with production officially starting March we should hear news very soon. The big question now is whether the studio wants these characters to be brought to the big screen solely with the use of CGI. If so, they might only be looking for voice talent and not actors of particular stature.

How do you feel about the way these characters should be handled for the film?




Many thanks to Matt and CosmicBookNews.com for this great info.

CGI

and I'm digging the looks so far. Kilowog was a concern for me, but I can roll with that.
StrangeCosmic - 1/26/2010, 3:24 PM
Nice!

Love all the designs. Tomar-Re actually doesn't look cheesey, and that's a big accomplishment in my eyes.

I vote for actors in suits with CGI for the details.
1chris2 - 1/26/2010, 3:25 PM
actors in suites and cgi for detail is how it should always be it just makes it feel real, and looks awesome.
jallanr - 1/26/2010, 3:26 PM
i think they should have the actors, but the majority should be cgi. this concept art looks amazing, cannot wait to see tomar re! btw, isnt that poster just the poster for the phantom, just green lanternified

woo hoo!
Coats - 1/26/2010, 3:28 PM
Rick Baker FTW! If these designs get translated well... wow, can't wait.
DogsOfWar - 1/26/2010, 3:32 PM
Nice scoop Poni
DeMoNaSsDiZ - 1/26/2010, 3:32 PM
the texture on tomar-re's suit is awesome!
i hope this is the feel that
all the designs will have to them!!!!
longbowhunter - 1/26/2010, 3:35 PM
WOW! I sincerly hope they really look like this in the movie. Kilowog looks badass. Poozers beware!
Urban8er - 1/26/2010, 3:37 PM
Muppets all the way!!!!!! Haha just kidding guys
ZoloTalar - 1/26/2010, 3:38 PM
Is it just me or does Abin Sur look like Bill Nighy?
realfirstavenger - 1/26/2010, 3:38 PM
love it except Kilowog who looks so generic and unlike Kilowog that it makes me sad
although I suppose it could be worse

but yeah the suits look amazing, its a good time to love comics :)
RorMachine - 1/26/2010, 3:39 PM
Tomar Rey looks great! I remember we were worried about how they would pull him off. Kilowog looks a bit..slimy, sort of too much like a slug or something, but not too bad.
InFamouslyCool - 1/26/2010, 3:40 PM
half & half. a little CGI.
JoshWilding - 1/26/2010, 3:43 PM
The poster says 2010 so I'm guessing thats fan-made!?

The concept art looks cool - I'd rather see some Cap or Thor stuff though, lol! ;)
BIGBMH - 1/26/2010, 3:45 PM
These look pretty awesome. Tomar-re is especially impressive. Kilowag looks cool, but I think his jawline should have more definition so he looks more muscular instead of fat.
InstigatorGIRL - 1/26/2010, 3:47 PM
I agree with BillyBlack. I think its looking good so far.
JoshWilding - 1/26/2010, 4:00 PM
MULTI: Cant remember seeing it before to be honest! :P

If the CGI/costumes are done well with characters like these then the movie will be a real visual treat! I may not be the biggest GL fan but I'm really looking forward to this movie! I'll just have to try and pick up a few Green Lantern graphic novels before 2011, lol!
superdog - 1/26/2010, 4:03 PM
The same technology they used for Abe in hellboy will be fine.
InTylerWeTrust - 1/26/2010, 4:25 PM
I hope they get Doug Jones for Tomar-Re. It seems foolish not to use his talents in some capacity for this movie.

For Abin Sur they don't really need make-up, just use an actor and use make-up to give him purple/pink skin. Not complicated.

Tomar-Re can be done using prosthetic stuff, look at Abe Sapien like dog said. They can use a CGI touch here though, but, for the most part, it isn't needed.

Get a stunt-man for Kilowog, a big stunt-man, and put him in a suit, then use CGI for most of the head details. And get Clancy Brown for the voice.
dellamorte1872 - 1/26/2010, 4:25 PM
kilowag still looks a lil like the dudes in the "FIFTH ELEMENT". they need to make his crainium more bulbous
Joker1Zero - 1/26/2010, 4:27 PM
Is that poster real?
Hawkfan876 - 1/26/2010, 4:28 PM
Outstanding I love the concept art. . Now lets hope a decent adversary is put in the film. Hector Hammond to me is just to Blasted weak a Character. and Please correct me if I am wrong But I heard Sinestro may not be in this film.
fanboiii - 1/26/2010, 4:30 PM
kilowog looks like a cute bulldog

tomar-re is perfect. doesn't look like a swamp chicken at all

they don't really need a villian for the first movie. they could just have hal figure out how to be a lantern and then do some missions

i actually like that they don't have masks
Hawksblueyes - 1/26/2010, 4:32 PM
All three look badass. Great find Multi.
InTylerWeTrust - 1/26/2010, 4:34 PM
Hawkfan: Sinestro will be in the film, but he won't be revealed as the big villain until a sequel. They're building up his arc and keeping him as a mentor in the first GL, to save him for later.
Frogman - 1/26/2010, 4:35 PM
hawkfan876@ sinestro has been cast, he just wont be the villain, he will start off good like in the comics. As far as i know Legion is meant to be the other villain in the film.

I could live with these designs. Now for some more official stuff :P
airbeyonder18 - 1/26/2010, 4:36 PM
Looks incredible! Can't wait!
linus0161 - 1/26/2010, 4:38 PM
i really don't see will smith as captain america. but i do see him a john stewart!!!!!! green lantern could be better than star wars and avatar put together. blackest night prophecy is so bad ass. please dive into the story of built on emotions, action, and space. i see DC next big trilogy. imagine watch the discovery channel on planets, space, and stars. the imagery slap with hollywood best will smith and ryan reynolds etc. storyline knee deep with different corps, midget gaurdains, sex women, and creatures from all over the universe.
ecksmanfan - 1/26/2010, 4:41 PM
So far, so good. Seems like they are heading in the right direction!
2814 - 1/26/2010, 4:42 PM
Keep the Lanterns! Loose the ring in the poster! Actors in suits! CG for flight and boxing gloves! How will the constructs look? That´s the real challenge!
Wadey09 - 1/26/2010, 4:45 PM
i am SERIOUSLY diggin' the designs!
Martin Campbell wasn't kidding when he said he wasn't going for cheese!
i am so hyped for this film!
Spilox - 1/26/2010, 4:51 PM
This is looking great!!
Nice avatar @wadey ;)
thwhtGuardian - 1/26/2010, 4:52 PM
Do you guys remember Mr. Wink from Hellboy II? He was the big monster with the robot hand that Hellboy fought in the market... He was just a guy in a suit and he was fantastic, I could see kilowog being the same way.
ATOMbomb - 1/26/2010, 4:56 PM
Looks good so far, I think it would be cool if it was just people in suits with a little CGI. The CGI thing is way overdone in my opinion.
GUNSMITH - 1/26/2010, 5:03 PM
ABIN SUR LOOKS LIKE BILL NIGHY DEFINITELLY..WHAT I'D LIKE TO SEE IS A CGI/PRACTICAL COMBO, BIG MONSTER SUITS BUT USING CGI FOR THE FACE, MUCH LIKE WHAT THEY DID FOR WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE..THATA HOW I'D LIKE IT DONE..
GUNSMITH - 1/26/2010, 5:04 PM
I LIKE HOW THE SUITS ARE ALL TEXTURED OUT, BETTER THAN SEEING SOME PLAIN NEOPRENE SPANDEX SUIT.
ArkAngel - 1/26/2010, 5:12 PM
All looks really nice
RedDevil - 1/26/2010, 5:13 PM
Wow this is amazing Multi good find. After I heard the news of THEHAWK I needed some enlightenment from my sorrow and this is getting me happy again. I can live with all the designs especially abin sur and tomar! Kilowag ain't too shabby, it's fine jus hope they can put more emphasis on his chin to make him look a brute rather than a chubby alien but he still looks swell. TheHawk is proud of these amazing news keep em comin.
Kalabog - 1/26/2010, 5:17 PM
Looks great. Minor suggestion: here Kilowog face looks slightly like "pug" than a bull dog. I suggest less dome head and more jaw -- more "Hippo like.

@ thwhtGuardian--Yes Mr. Wink of Hellboy II. I guess I can even appreciate it if the producers would opt to using the effects in Hellboy II.

@ Zolotalar -- Abin Sur does remind me of Bill Nighy in underworld!
