One movie that fans may or may not be looking forward to next year is The Green Lantern. The Warner Bros comic book adaptation will be hitting theaters in June and stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, the title character, and the first human to join the Lantern Corps. It’s tough being the only human surrounded by alien creatures, aliens like Tomar-Re who actually makes a brief appearance in the trailer. Today we’ve got our hands on a photo that gives us an up close and personal look at the CGI character. Check him out…
This image was posted on The Daily Blam and presented by DC chief Geoff Johns. If you have no idea who Tomar-Re is, here’s how he describes the character.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS… is a mantra Tomar-Re lives by which has aided him in becoming an honored and highly respected Green Lantern. It’s also a mantra that the filmmakers, like production designer, costume designer Ngila Dickson and visual effects supervisor Jimmy Berney have taken as their own. Producer Donald De Line and director Martin Campbell have assembled an amazing corps.
Growing up on the planet Xudar, Tomar-Re comes from a peaceful avian race that focuses their efforts on the arts and sciences instead of war. His nature to examine everything has led the Guardians of the Universe to appoint him the archivist and protector of the sacred Book of Oa. When not studying the nature of the Corps, Tomar-Re patrols the sector of 2813 where he developed a close friendship with neighboring sector 2814′s Green Lantern, Abin Sur. Tomar has taken an interest in Abin’s replacement, Hal Jordan. Though Hal is not one for details, Tomar hopes to teach Hal what it means to be a Green Lantern.
Now the same thoughtfulness that Tomar-Re believes in is being utilized to bring him and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps to life on the big screen.
The Green Lantern is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17, 2011.
