The week before last we found out from director Martin Campbell that Mark Strong was in talks to play Sinestro, an integral character in the life of Hal Jordan and the origins of Green Lantern. Campbell also revealed in that interview that we’ll be seeing some of the stranger intergalactic members of the Green Lantern Corps in the film as well.
These aliens include the likes of Kilowog, Tomar-Re and Abin Sur. For those who have no idea who I’m referring to, you’ll get an idea after the jump through some leaked official concept images of these characters for the production of Green Lantern.
Here’s the segment of that interview here Campbell name-drops some of the characters who will be featured in Green Lantern:
“Well, Kilowog will be… Tomar-Re is in it. Sinestro is in it. Abin Sur is in it. All the origin people. Carol [Ferris], of course, who will be played by Blake Lively. All the main characters are there, and it’s a complex story. The origin story of Green Lantern is complex, probably one of the most complex, which makes it a challenge to get it right.”
Cosmic Book News got a hold of some of the concept art for the movie and was apparently able to verify their validity. The first image up top depicts Tomar-Re (fish for a head) and Abin Sur.
The following images show off Kilowog who I’m excited to see share screen time with Ryan Reynolds.
What do you think of the concept art? Matches pretty darn good to the comics, no?
Director Martin Campbell and his award-winning crew get to work in March on Green Lantern and is scheduled to open June 17, 2011.
