First Look: Corps. Member Tomar-Re from DC's 'Green Lantern'
Hey wouldya look at that! It's the holidays and things are quiet, so why not toss up this very first good look at the alien known as Tomar-Re from the upcoming Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds. The photo comes from ComicBookMovie and is obviously scanned from some magazine or promo flyer with the image, but it's still a good, clear look worth checking out, especially if you're a fan of the comics. Despite the overly negative reaction to the first teaser trailer, I've actually seen this guy in motion (he flies fluidly like a fish) when I visited the set earlier this year, and he looks great. I'm still very excited to see more from this!
Tomar-Re is a scientist from the planet Xudar who is part of the Green Lantern Corps. He became a pivotal member of the Corps, helping train members like Hal Jordan (Reynolds), and is good friends with Abin Sur.
Green Lantern is directed by veteran New Zealand filmmaker Martin Campbell, of Defenseless, GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro, Vertical Limit, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness previously. The script was written by Greg Berlanti ("Everwood", "Eli Stone"), Michael Goldenberg (Peter Pan, Order of the Phoenix), Michael Green ("Everwood", "Kings") & comic book writer Marc Guggenheim ("FlashForward") and is based on the DC Comics superhero. Warner Bros is bringing Green Lantern to theaters in 3D everywhere on June 17th!
