Green Lantern – Concept Art for Sinestro and The Guardians

Posted by LiveFor on January 29, 2010


A few days ago there was some concept art from the Green Lantern movie – it showed Kilowog, Abin Sur and Tomar Re.

Now Latino Review have dug up some art for Sinestro (the Green Lantern who helps train Ryan Reynold’s Hal Jordan. He’ll possibly be played by Mark Strong) and on of the Guardians of the Universe (they’re the blue guys who built the Lanterns and power rings).

Again, the art work looks cool and they seem to have the right idea (although something seems a bit off about the look of Sinestro) but there is no actual confirmation that any of it is official concept art for the movie. Only time will tell…or someone from the studio!

Green Lantern – Concept art – Look it’s Abin Sur, Tomar Re and Kilowog, you lousy Poozer!

Posted by LiveFor on January 27, 2010

That is the current situation for the Martin Campbell directed adaption of the DC comic. Sinestro probably won’t be the main bad guy (like the comics he’ll start out as a Lantern) and Legion could well be one of the bad guys along with Hammond, but what about the other members of the Green Lantern Corp? Well it looks as if Cosmic Book News scored the first look at some concept art for Abin Sur (the Green Lantern who’s death leads to Hal Jordan getting the power ring), Tomar Re and my favourite, Green Lantern trainer, Kilowog.

The DC Database gives a quick background to Kilowog for those not up to speed on who he is (mind you due to the convoluted DC continuity it may mean nothing to you if you’ve never read the comics):

Bolovax Vik was one of the most crowded planets in the universe; it had 16 billion residents with a communal mind. Kilowog was a geneticicist and one of Bolovax’s most brilliant minds. After the previous Lantern, Branwill, died, Kilowog was chosen to be a member of the Green Lantern Corps. It was a great honor, but it meant leaving Bolovax and going into space on missions; this was tantamount to exile for a Bolovaxian. Nevertheless, Kilowog carried out his duties with pride. He would go on to be one of the Corps’ best recruiters and trainers.

During the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Bolovax Vik was destroyed. His ring automatically protected Kilowog, but not his people. Acting quickly, he placed all 16 billion life energies into his ring. By sheer force of his will they survived until Kilowog found a suitable planet to release his people. Sadly, the planet was soon destroyed by Sinestro. Kilowog could not rescue them again. He was now alone for good

Cosmic Book News also have the story from the 2008 Green Lantern script. It makes interesting reading but as we don’t yet know whether this will be the exact script they are using there could well be major spoilers involved.

The concept art for all three looks a lot like the comic book characters which is a good thing.

Concept art is always great to see but the final look depends upon who will be working on the effects. Variety have the news that Karen Goulekas (The Day After Tomorrow) Kent Houston (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and Jim Berney (I Am Legend) will be in charge of making the effects look real. Sony Pictures Imageworks will also be the lead visual effects studio on the film. They worked on Watchmen and Superman Returns. All of those films had their flaws, but in the main they had excellent special effects so Green Lantern should look splendid.

Green Lantern is due out on 17th June 2011.

The question is who will voice Kilowog, Abin Sur and Tomar Re?

Green Lantern – Rorschach may be Sinestro and Superman could be in it

Posted by LiveFor on October 17, 2009

sinestroOkay calm down. Before I go any further let me just say that this is a rumour from Harry Knowles over at AICN. However, he states it is from a pretty reliable source from someone working on the film. We know Ryan Reynolds is playing Hal Jordan in the Martin Campbell directed Green Lantern film, but until now there hasn’t really been much movement on who will be playing the other roles.

Here is what Harry had to say:

This story came from someone working on the film. That part is solid, what isn’t – and won’t be till it all gets finalized is the fact that JACKIE EARLE HALEY is leading the list to play SINESTRO!!! That’s just about perfect in my book! Something that makes me absolutely giddy as all hell!

Oh… and according to my source, it’s looking like SUPERMAN will be making a cameo, but that all depends upon how… other DC things go, but it is an indicator that DC is paying attention and taking note of what MARVEL is doing, which has excited all of us so much! But remember, you heard it all here first!


Jackie Earle Haley as Sinestro. For those not in the know Sinestro is the big bad of Hal Jordan’s tales – he used to be a Green Lantern who trained and was a friend of Hal’s but it turned out he was a bit of a nasty chap. Haley was great as Rorschach and is Freddy Krueger in the remake of Elm Street.

In my opinion he has the right face for Sinestro, but he is a little short for the purple faced fella.

As for Superman cameoing (no word if that would be Brandon Routh) well I really hope they have some kind of cameo from him or a few other DC characters just to tie it all in as that is what we comic fans love and geek out on.

Do you think Jackie Earle Haley is the right fit for Sinestro? If not him who? How should they get Superman or other DC characters to cameo in it?

Ryan Gosling could be Green Lantern

Posted by LiveFor on October 9, 2008

Latino Review have some news that Warner Brothers is looking at Ryan Gosling for the main role as Hal Jordan. This hasn’t been officially confirmed, but is apparantly from a good source.

I know Ryan has won an Oscar and has had good reviews for all the films he has been in (Lars and the Real Girl, Notebook, Half Nelson etc). However, I personally just don’t picture him as the Green Lantern. I know that’s just a looks thing and he’ll probably act it out of the park, but for the moment it just doesn’t grab me. If anything I could see him more as Sinestro.

What do you think of the news? Good or bad news for Green Lantern?
