New 'Green Lantern' Character Poster Shines a Light on Tomar-Re
Though the first trailer for Green Lantern had some fairly sloppy special effects work and a tone that was just all over the place, the extended bit of footage from WonderCon that made its way online was just what the doctor ordered. And within those bits of footage and various stills, we've had a glimpse at Tomar-Re, a character which we recently learned would be voiced by Geoffrey Rush. Now the character is featured on his own poster for the film as he will be integral to helping Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) master his new powers, find the courage to overcome his fears, and defeat an enemy called Parallax. See the poster below!
Here's the new poster (click for a larger version via Collider):
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, like Arisia, and serving in the Honor Guard. He's seen in the movie when Reynolds goes to Oa to train (I've seen early footage and it looks great). Kilowog, a gifted genetic scientist, was recruited by The Guardians of the Universe from the planet Bolovax Vik, located in Space Sector 674. He is renowned throughout the Green Lantern Corps as the primary trainer of the Corps' newest recruits. Green Lantern is directed by Martin Campbell and stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard and Mark Strong as the alien Sinestro. It arrives in theaters starting on June 17th
