Michael Clarke Duncan Will Be Voicing Kilowog in 'Green Lantern'!

April 12, 2011

Michael Clarke Duncan / Kilowog

Briefly: It has been officially confirmed by Heat Vision that actor Michael Clarke Duncan will be voicing the alien Kilowog in DC Comics' Green Lantern movie. The news was originally revealed by Latino Review a few weeks back and THR says Duncan is now "in negotiations" for the voice role. Kilowog (seen above) from the planet Bolovax Vik in Sector 674 is a drill sergeant trainer of new recruits for the Green Lantern Corps and, despite that rather menacing look, is a beloved fan favorite character. Glad to see them putting care and concern into every last detail of Green Lantern. If you haven't yet, watch the WonderCon footage!

Love this choice. Totally on board with this film now. I even dig the mask.

Dunno about you guys but when I watched the scenes on Oa I never noticed how CG-looking the characters were, I just accepted that they were alien. The only thing I'm not psyched about is the sheer amount I'll spend on movies this summer.

this is really cool, but i guess i'm just shocked that they didn't have all the acting done this close to release...

No no, the acting is done, all the CGI was recorded with performance capture. But the voices are being recorded now to use for the characters. They just wanted better voices than the physical mo-cap guys they used.

oooook, that makes sense. i'm still a bit ignorant when it comes to how companies go about movies with CGI..

Michael Clarke Duncan is a great choice and has a great voice. Duncan has a commanding voice which is perfect for Kilowog. It'll probably be some fun scenes training Earth's Green Lantern.

Geoffrey Rush is Tomar-Re btw

It's hard not to be excited about anything with Michael Clark Duncan involved! Does anyone else think, though, that Kilowog looks a lot like the cave troll from LotR: FotR?
