The Daily BLAM! got the exclusive first look at Tomar-Re from the upcoming Green Lantern movie, and he certainly looks like an alien fish-bird thingy.
Growing up on the planet Xudar, Tomar-Re comes from a peaceful avian race that focuses their efforts on the arts and sciences instead of war. His nature to examine everything has led the Guardians of the Universe to appoint him the archivist and protector of the sacred Book of Oa. When not studying the nature of the Corps, Tomar-Re patrols the sector of 2813 where he developed a close friendship with neighboring sector 2814’s Green Lantern, Abin Sur. Tomar has taken an interest in Abin’s replacement, Hal Jordan. Though Hal is not one for details, Tomar hopes to teach Hal what it means to be a Green Lantern.
To quote Rodrigo, “I Like It!” There is certainly a lot of CGI going on, but it sure beats a really skinny guy in a cheap rubber mask. And really, in the day and age of computer post production taking over the world, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that most/all of the aliens, along with the Green Lantern ring effects are all going to be CGI. Ten to One says I enjoy the heck out of this movie regardless.
