First Look at Green Lantern’s Kilowog, Writer for GL 2

You can’t have a “Green Lantern” movie without Kilowog. And as it turns out, you won’t. Check out your first look at (an all-CG?) Kilowog, Hal Jordan’s intergalactic GL drill instructor from the upcoming Martin Campbell movie. The film has since wrapped production and will now begin the long process of post-production, which should be a bear given that probably half (if not more) of the film is computer generated ala “Star Wars” and its ilk. Via CBM.

In other “Green Lantern” news, Warner Bros., feeling a tad optimistic about the prospects of their fledging franchise-in-the-making, has already hired screenwriter Michael Goldenberg to get to work writing “Green Lantern 2″. Goldenberg, who counts “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” among his credits, will be working off a treatment by original “Green Lantern” writers Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim.

“Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Temuera Morrison, Jenna Craig, Jon Tenney, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett, Taika Cohen, Jeff Wolfe, and is directed by Martin Campbell.

Kilowog shows his pretty face June 17, 2011.

    That looks good for concept art. Now we need to see what the fully CG one will look like, but I’m sure it’s gonna be pretty good. Reminds me of the dude that ran the Diner in SW Ep II: Attack of the Clones, Dex i think his name was. If they can get the realism of those characters or Gollum we’re good.

    Look strange. Not quite the Killowog we all know…

    When you take a cartoon/comic character thats an alien and try to make them photorealistic there will have to be some changes made to avoid them looking silly. Tomar Re looks different as well. And the Guardians’ heads probably wont be as big either cause that’d look silly as well. But the essence of the characters and the general look remain unchanged.

    looks good, but not grumpy-looking enough. lol. just my two cents.

  • Somebody

    God, I hope that’s not Kilowog. That’s HORRIBLE.

    • Mike

      Thank you! Someone with real sense!

  • Joey the Great

    He still has human eyes, they need to change that…

    i agree that while he overall looks pretty good, he looks to gentle. He needs that bigger jaw they give him in the comics to give him that more serious and grumpy look mentioned eariler.

    As it turned out, that was the full CG version of the character
