Green Lantern Concept Art: Tomar-Re And Sinestro

Looks like more art has leaked onto the net!

Looks like more art has leaked onto the net!

 
So first we saw some Hal art from back in September. Then on Wednesday we showed you guys the concept art for Kilowag which a lot of you might agree with me when I say was pretty cool. Now we have some awesome images of Sinestro as a Green Lantern, of Tomar Re,and Ganthet.

I don't know how reliable the Green Lantern concept art that has hit the web is, but if this is the concept art for what we can expect to see in the upcoming film, I get the feeling that the portrayal is going to be pretty accurate, and that is great news for fans! I have to say that a lot of this art that we have been seeing reminds me a lot of the sort of characters we saw in Star Wars. If this movie turns out to be anything like that, then we definitely have something to be excited about! What do you guys think of the images? What other Green Lantern characters would you like to see concept art for? 
 

Ganthet


 Tomar Re


 Sinestro as a Green Lantern

I don't really care for Sinestro's GL uniform...or Ganthet's head for that matter...but then that's just me.

Sinestro looks awful

Posted by starkiller95

guardian looks like yoda!

Posted by danhimself

remember that these are just concept designs and the finish product could look completely different....I think they look great...not a huge fan of Sinestro though

Sinestro with a mullet? aside from that it still looks great but these Alien creature designs do freak me right the frick out.

Posted by sfizzle

what are they doing with sinestro? it looks like he belongs to an 80's metal band with that hair doo

Posted by The_Martian

Get rid of the mullet and Sinestro looks fine.

This is some pretty serious art work. The more I see of this series the more I start to think of the SciFi series Farscape. The alien creatures even look like they are from that show. Adding in Ryan Reynolds brand of cocky humor. It all seems pretty similar. Not that it's a bad thing. Farscape was a great series. I loved the creatures the Henson Creature Shop made. If the Henson shop was making the aliens for this movie. It would get my butt in teh theater.
 
It actually makes me more excited for this movie. I was more worried the were going to make just a green version of the Superman movie.

@ARMIV: but the uniform is so eXtreme!
 
no seriously part of me wishes they would stick with the streamlined smooth GL uniforms but I also kind of like these just because they are remaking everything else and making the aliens look more realistic so why not have the uniforms look a bit more alien as well? but I certainly don't want them to look like Motocross riders or anything.

Sinestro look like Ming the Merciless, but I like it.  I figured they'd have to make it somewhat original, and it's dark.  Not to sure on why Sinestro looks like his suit is decaying, but I like how evil he looks.  Obviously they're making it dark and gritty and that's a good sign, make it adult.  Scare the littele children.

I do not like the appearance of Sinestro

Posted by Namor1987

geeze quit complaining the Sinestro CONCEPT ART looks fine he looks sinister & kind reminds me of Father James Mitchell from TNA Wrestling i love it

Posted by azaritorrent

sinestro looks like early Undertaker.

Awesome, not sure on the hair for Sinestro but that seems to be the only problem i can pick out.

Because hes corrupted & does believe in the GL Corps way so thats probably why

why cant MIniMe play ganthet?
Posted by sfizzle

i'm not digging the costume they are going with. It looks way to organic that might translate poorly on the big screen.

Edited by NightFang

Ganthet and Sinestro look pretty cool, if you ask me.

@ARMIV:

They are ok...not as good as they could be.
Edited by Bandito

So they're getting John Travolta to reprise his role from Battlefield Earth and just calling him Sinestro?

Posted by Sylar0

They look pretty cool but I think that they could be better then that. And Siniestro needs to get a haircut because that hairdo does not say I'm going to be the bad guy in the future
Posted by Ms. Omega

nice love the artwork

Posted by Precise

Judging from the thread i'm probably one of the few that likes this Sinestro look than xP

@Precise:
You're not the only one. He looks pretty badass.
Posted by monamos

is it just me, or does Sinestro look like Tom Selleck?

Posted by Nova`Prime`

Sinestro looks like he's made out of tree bark.

Posted by azaritorrent

lol old and evil that made me choke on my food

... Now that you mention it, yes he does.
Posted by Moomin123

I think Sinestro needs shorter hair. He looks like Shang Tsung from Mortal Kombat.

I dont like sinestro...

yeah they are gonna ruin this movie and destroy green lantern and sinestro looks like he plays bass for RATT first ryan renyolds now this..............EPIC FAIL!!
Posted by TheBug

Certainly is different, but we have to remember that the movies are not like the comics. Some things don't translate as well on screen. 
 
Tomar Re looks badass.
Posted by squiresmadnessmachine

i can already tell this movie is gonna destroy green lantern sinestro looks like he plays bass for RATT  
first ryan renyolds now this...................EPIC FAIL!!

Y'know I really like the fact that the GLC looks kinda creepy.  If the corps is more dictatorial than benevolent, like Sinestro, then we will see a very large change when Hal steps in as the model GL.

Posted by Bruce Vain

Sinestro looks like Tom Selleck with a slicked back mullet & the costume doesn't look right.

 Farscape was an amazing show, I loved it!

I still have the feeling that these are nothing more than fanworks that are being passed off as "concept art".  It happened all the time with Transformers.

Posted by Aion

sinestro looks so cool.
Edited by EdwardWindsor

sinestro looks alot like tim curry to me in that pic weirdly lol " with a bit of ming the mercyless from flash gordan chucked in"  , also not a fan of the new power mullet he already has the ring for power 

Posted by Theodore

Ganthet looks cool but is the top of his head shadow or is it just darker than the rest? I'm hoping its just a shadow... Lose the mullet and Sinestro looks awesome. I don't really like the costumes that much though, they should be smoother. I'm sure the final versions will look amazing considering these already look great!

Posted by Timm

this looks good. i like the organic, "i made my ring from ring-power" look. i like these a lot.

Posted by lostlantern13

Ganthet's head looks a bit freaky. 
 
The Sinestro concept just doesn't capture the essence of the character. Sinestro doesn't physically intimidate anyone. He is composed, calculating, smooth...he always comes across with a serious and regal flair. He's the very opposite of the headstrong Hal Jordan. The art doesn't convey any of that.

even if some one isn't reading the comics, and sees him in that uniform, it strikes him that Sinestro gonna be the bad guy or one of the bad guys

That's the thing, Sinestro was the greatest Green Lantern, and the ideal for every new recruit. He shouldn't appear "evil." I'm not enraged by the art, which isn't final, but from a storytelling sense it would be more compelling if Sinestro's flaws were discovered by the audience alongside Hal.  Foreshadowing that he's the bad guy would take away from the potential depth that could be mined from this angle.
 
Even now, Sinestro doesn't believe himself to be a bad guy. He still says that he believes in the GLC even while ruling his Sinestro Corps.

Sinistro reminds me of John Travolta from Battlefield Earth!
Posted by 00 Raiser

Sinestro with long hair. I dont think so. Tomar Re looks great! and the guy next to him I am going to say his Abin Sur and he looks PERFECT!!! Ganthet looks to tall.

Posted by Argentino_18

Ganthet looks like De niro in the Elephant man....
