Thanks to Comic Book Movie, we have out first look at an early image of the character Tomar-Re from Warner Bros. highly anticipated film Green Lantern. This is most likely what the character will look like in the final film, it will be just be much more polished when it's completely done. Tomar-Re has been dubbed Hal Jordan's 'spiritual guide' in the film.
According to DC Comics, 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 and serving in the Honor Guard. He was close friends with Abin Sur, Green Lantern of neighboring sector 2814 and was the first Lantern Corps member to meet his replacement, Hal Jordan.
I really like the designs we've seen from the film so far. It really looks like they nailed the designs of these alien Lantern Corps members. Check out the images that have leaked out below and feel free to share your thoughts with us!
Tomar's most famous mission while serving in the Corps dealt with the planet Krypton. Krypton, a planet in Sector 2813, was growing increasingly unstable. It was due to explode, caused by internal pressures deep inside the planet's core. Tomar-Re sought to use a rare compound called Stellarium to absorb some of the tectonic pressure, thus saving the Kryptonians. He gathered the compound, and was en route to Krypton when a yellow solar flare blinded him, and forced him to drop the stellarium. He quickly recovered, but discovered he was blind. He gathered what little stellarium he could without his sight, and proceeded towards Krypton. He was closing in when his vision started to clear. The first thing he saw upon his sight returning was Krypton exploding. The Guardians of the Universe recovered Tomar and brought him back to Oa, where he healed and rested.
