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):

Green Lantern Tomar-Re Poster

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

so is sinestro the bad guy??

Moviekid on Apr 21, 2011


No, Sinestro (in this movie) is a good guy, he's still a Green Lantern. Parallax is the bad guy, the first epic Yellow Lantern force, and he takes over the body of Hector Hammond (played by Peter Sarsgaard) on Earth, who causes mayhem and so on.

Cant wait for this movie........ BUT, I think they made Tomar-Re look too scrawny.... He is supposed to be a BADASS not a frail timid little lantern

Agree, he needs more muscle to him, as it stands he kinda looks like a giant baby bird. Though I'm sure his Willpower is as strong as ever, that's mostly what counts.

Epic full of epicness.

I predict this movie will flop. It doesnt look entertaining and Ryan Reynolds meh. Id say worse flick of the superhero movies coming out this year. My 2 cents.

....really? The WORST superhero movie of the summer? First it all depends on how you grade them but come on. Thor...have you even seen the trailers? It looks like camp but without the tongue-in-cheek aspect that made Batman & Robin fun. And Captain America? Come on. (I say all this since you obviously don't mind claiming opinions as facts.)

Tyler Morgan on Apr 22, 2011


Nah, Tyler, it just means that he's a time traveler--I mean, he MUST have gone into the future (June 17, 2011), seen the movie, and came back to tell us that it'll be the worst superhero film of the year. Or he's talking out of his @$$. I'd go with the latter. Me? I'll wait till this film comes out and see it and then judge it. Man...isn't that what we used to do?

NICE! If they release a Sinestro one like this, and I want it big as it's available and framed. So awesome!

Re: needs more "muscles" uh, Tomar-Re is an alien. You really can't judge him by human standards. By that reasoning, they should have gotten Lou Ferrigno to play the alien in ALIEN. or how about Arnold to play Jabba the Hut? Jabba was a badass too. Anyway, the GLs do things with ring power, not muscles. Many GLs don't look even as human as TR. One looks like a diamond, and another is an entire planet.

"Anyway, the GLs do things with ring power, not muscles." Yep. "Many GLs don't look even as human as TR. One looks like a diamond, and another is an entire planet." And in the comic, there was one who looked like a squirrel. Good points, Greenblade. But remember, they're going to be lost on people who think that they know more about film making...than actual film makers. They complain about how there's "too much CG" in the film when in fact it was probably the only way to create most of the members of the GL Corps. Practical makeup effects and animatronics/puppetry can only do so much.
