EXCLUSIVE: Possible Final Design of Tomar-Re from Green Lantern

Here is your first look at a CGI rendering of Tomar-Re, Hal Jordan's spiritual guide, in the DC comics adaptation Green Lantern. Is this what the character will look like in the finished film?

When the live-action Green Lantern film hits theaters next summer, audiences will not only be introduced to the character Hal Jordan (portrayed by Ryan Reynolds), but his "support staff" of alien Lantern Corps members who help him learn the ways of patrolling the universe. The most important three being Thaal Sinestro, Hal's mentor, Kilowog, his drill instructor, and Tomar-Re, who has been dubbed by the film's production department as Hal's 'spiritual guide.'

According to DC comics mythology: Tomar-Re was a scientist on the planet Xudar before joining the Green Lantern Corps. He became a pivotal member of the Corps, training new members and serving in the Honor Guard. He was close friends with Abin Sur, Green Lantern of neighboring sector 2814 and was the first Lantern Corps member to meet his replacement, Hal Jordan.



Tomar's most famous mission while serving in the Corps dealt with the planet Krypton. Krypton, a planet in Sector 2813, was growing increasingly unstable. It was due to explode, caused by internal pressures deep inside the planet's core. Tomar-Re sought to use a rare compound called Stellarium to absorb some of the tectonic pressure, thus saving the Kryptonians. He gathered the compound, and was en route to Krypton when a yellow solar flare blinded him, and forced him to drop the stellarium. He quickly recovered, but discovered he was blind. He gathered what little stellarium he could without his sight, and proceeded towards Krypton. He was closing in when his vision started to clear. The first thing he saw upon his sight returning was Krypton exploding. The Guardians of the Universe recovered Tomar and brought him back to Oa, where he healed and rested.

Colton - 8/16/2010, 7:22 PM
the y look really [frick]ing cool. kilowogs muscular shape makes up for human eyes. and tomar re is spot on. cgi has come a long way
InTylerWeTrust - 8/16/2010, 7:22 PM
This is great. Tomar Re looks awesome, but I LOVE the look of his suit even more. And I really warmed up to Kilowog, I dig his look, and he seems appropriately huge in size.

Fantastic stuff Poni :)

Joe6Pack74 - 8/16/2010, 7:24 PM
They have done a good job bring these characters from the comics to the screen. It will be something to see the finished movie.
cchriswake13 - 8/16/2010, 7:25 PM

frigidgiantinthe716 - 8/16/2010, 7:29 PM
Excellent. Now bring sinestro. Brrrrrrr
claybo4131 - 8/16/2010, 7:31 PM
Will be interesting if he brings up something that hints at Krypton in the movie to Hal, would be interesting.

Now we need to know who will voice them

One other thing, hope they dont kill him off like they did in First Flight
DCMarvelFreshman - 8/16/2010, 7:34 PM
I've never seen A GL comics, but it will be interesting see these aliens/monster/creatures/characters on screen.
BruceWayneNewton - 8/16/2010, 7:34 PM
amazing
claybo4131 - 8/16/2010, 7:37 PM
@nopurpose I looked at it closely, you can tell that they are cardboard cutouts.

If you look at that second photo, and look closely, you can tell it is flat, which they more than likely used for the stand-in parts for Ryan Reynolds and Mark Strong to interact with the other members of the corp.
THEMRTERRIFIC - 8/16/2010, 7:37 PM
AWESOME!! Tomar looks good, Kilowog...not so much!
InstigatorGIRL - 8/16/2010, 7:38 PM
Sweet! Excellent find Pietro. This movie is gonna be epic.

PanchoBB - 8/16/2010, 7:44 PM
Hey did u guys notice that Kilowog looks more pink in this. More like the comic :) I'm new here.
P862010 - 8/16/2010, 7:47 PM
kilwog is really intimidating

he really looks like some drill Sargent that would make you piss your pants
secretasianboy - 8/16/2010, 7:47 PM
great that it doesn't look cartonny
claybo4131 - 8/16/2010, 7:48 PM
@nopurpose you said they were the same as the concept images. The probably just used the images to make the cardboard cutout standins for the film. Notice on Tomar there arent any shadows, if it was a dummy-maniquene stand in there would be shadowns. When you said they were exactly like the concept art, I looked closer at the photo and noticed it was a cardboard cutout.
comics56 - 8/16/2010, 7:49 PM
It looks lot with the conceptual design. Diferent from Kilowog. Want to see the Guardians of The Universe!! Krona!! Parallax!!! And I am sure that Eon will be featured!
DogsOfWar - 8/16/2010, 7:49 PM
@claybo @NoPurposeNaji - They are in fact cardboard cutouts used for placement in shots. That is why there are red led markers in the shot as well. They are set to full scale for marking purposes.
Nytwng77043 - 8/16/2010, 7:49 PM
I still have the same hitch that is on EVERYONE'S mind...

FOOTAGE!!!! Please correct me if I'm wrong.
GreenHalJordan - 8/16/2010, 7:51 PM
PERFECT, THEY ARE REALLY MAKING ME EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE!
Bzzd looks great, Tomar-re looks even better; AND KILOWAOG IS AMAZING TOO! plus hes darker skinned like he is in the comics now, YEA 4 GL!!!
DogsOfWar - 8/16/2010, 8:00 PM
@NoPurposeNaji - These were not taken during filming but just before/after a scene was shot
Upupandaway - 8/16/2010, 8:02 PM
@John- I'm not bashing at all and know that these are cgi that will be improved on. But there is a such thing as too much green: : )

I'm really looking forward to this movie. Looks like Campbell is putting a lot of love into it, which I love. GL is a great character(s) that deserves some spotlight time.
