I do have to say that it does..have orangic Nevelle Page 'look' to it.

If you guys didn't know, character designer Nevelle Page (Star Trek, Avatar) had a video interview with Page and he confirmed that he was working on 30 designs for GL.

That's just badass. The lower jaw needs to be a little more pronounced though.
Otherwise perfect.

Also, they call Carol a villain. Is this the first time we will be seeing a female love interest turn into a villain in a later film? Aka Star Sapphire. However, she does ... reform...

I'm gonna say its fan art for now because they're are some really talented people on this board and many others for that matter. I just have a hard time believing this would have leaked this early when the reality is we never get anything like this this early in the production.

It's somebody's concept art (not necessarily what will be the final concept for the film), but it is not directly obvious that it is fake or not. (in fact it is real because we can see it). BTW Tomar-Re's beak is there, it's just not as pronounced as we have seen in other artwork.

What I mean is, when you look at the kilowog and tomar re designs, they're clearly from the same artist, whereas the abin sur design looks noticably more fan made. Look at his outfit... People have been using that costume template to make manips for quite a while...

dnno1
01-26-2010, 02:59 PM
Certainly it is possible that they came from two different artists (one being the concept art and the other being the CGI concept illustrator), but I am leaning toward the fact that none of this might be official.

protocida

It's probabily official. They have been working on the alien Green Lanterns for a long time.

I'm inclined to agree. This movie starts filming in like a
Month and some change.. Concept art was bound to turn up sooner or later... And kilowog and tomar look pretty genuine..

Octoberist
01-26-2010, 03:29 PM
the designs look real or at least, they were created from the ground up.

Granted, I think someone just photoshopped Abin and just included his pic with the other (superior) two designs.

Yeah, it might just be the angle he's positioned in, it just looks a little bit like he's had it surgically removed or somethin'.

Abin looks like he has JEH's lower face or something.

Hehe! You're right, there's a certain similarity... I think both abin And tomar look quite heavily based on doug jones, tho.

That's him alright man. I've been trying to figure out whose mug that can be and that has to be Jackie Earle Haley's. It is safe to say that Jackie Earle Haley has been considered at some point to play Abin Sur. Maybe he's signed and all. Who knows...

So now the question is who is Tomar-Re. From the looks of it, it's not Doug Jones.

Juggernaut33
01-26-2010, 05:17 PM
The eyes scream Doug Jones to me. But the artist might of just drawn the character's head design without superposing it onto any actor's face in particular.

01-26-2010, 05:18 PM
Some NICE concept art. What do you guys think is the material of those GL uniforms Kilowog and Tomar-Re are wearing? At first glance I thought Kilowog was wearing X-Men/Hancock style leather, but looking more closely, it's not that. It's skintight, form-fitting, like a more futuristic, alien-looking version of spandex. Perhaps some kind of latex/PVC or pleather material would be used to make the costumes, or just a more metallic and reflective spandex?

dnno1
01-26-2010, 05:33 PM
Either leather (as shown in the artist concept painting) or fabric (as shown in the CGI rendering). That's what it looks like to me.

I don't think you'll see any spandex in the movie. They might be a treated Lycra blend, which is a bit more durable than spandex. I love the looks of the characters and the outfits. It seems Mr. Campbell has a good grasp of how to portray the GL universe on screen. These have me officially pumped for this movie.

:hal:If these are official concept art for: Kilowog, Abin Sur, and Tomar-Re this movie is going to kick ass.

Keyser Soze
01-26-2010, 07:23 PM
Note the green gloves on Tomar-Re. If his uniform is closer to regulation than Kilowog's (who gets allowances on missing gloves and boots due to him being so massve, I guess), then it would seem we can say goodbye to white gloves. I don't really have a problem with that change, to be honest.

dnno1
01-26-2010, 07:59 PM
These are concept artwork scans. In truth, though, the only requlation that the corps has as far as the uniform goes is the colors and the emblem. Even the mask is optional. A good story to read is the novel Green Lantern: A Heroes Quest. In that story it goes on to explain that the possessor of the ring must not use it for personal profit nor to promote the cause of their clan (i.e. political gain). Seeing that as the case it was understood that some members might or might not want to disguise their identity for that reason. Also the fact that each alien beings come in different shapes and sizes, it is difficut to have a single standard uniform.

Wesley Dodds
01-26-2010, 08:03 PM
Still, I think what keyser was saying is that tomar re's costume is more or less identical to Jordans and if they're ditching the White gloves for him, then why wouldn't they give hal the same treatment?

NoirMan82
01-26-2010, 10:42 PM

I don't know much about the production of movies but with less then a month and a half before filming I would imagine they have to start locking down designs for these characters especially if they have to be used in CG scenes so that they can get started. It's really to bad we have to wait until probably may or june to start seeing anything but thats the fun I guess.

But it's like complaining about using Dr. Doom in Fantastic Four (regardless the quality).

Sinestro represents the Silver Age of comics, and that's a very enduring element. He's obvious evil and it reminds us where comics origianlly came from. Kinda pulp.

anyway, Sinestro has become one of the biggest characters in DC (along with best selling Green Lantern) and probably one of the well developed characters in recent memory.

If they step it up to a full goatee I wont be upset.

But Sinestro without a receding hairline and some kind of facial hair is like joker without without white skin, or Darth Vader without his armor.

It's his defining feature.

yea i am sure with filming underway in a month and a half they would have to have all alien/possible cgi-makeup looks all locked in place and more likely then not if its actors in makeup/suits to already been locked on how they are going. Also yea dark b i agree if these are real which it seems to be it could have been from months ago or more recent we dont really have a clue since they dont have any dates marked on them.

Also i dont see why sinestro or hector wouldnt have a beard or what not. Its defining traits to both of the characters.

As for the complaint of Sinestros mustache. All I can muster up is a gigantic laugh.

They aren't going to not use the mustache because it reminds you of Walt Disney or Clayton from Tarzan.

At most they'll change the style of the mustache a bit but completely remove it?

Then that just wouldn't be Sinestro.

Lets remove Tony Starks goatee while we're at it.

Yeah, he also said that he was working on some 30 different creatures (all members of the GL Corps) so their will be more than just Kilowog, Tomar-Re, Abin Sur, and Sinestro that we will see in the film. BTW, I think the artist concept paintings look like E.J. Krisor's (Spider-Man 3) work. Page is actually working on the alien creatures of the corps and (my bet is that) Krisor is working on the costume concept artwork.

No, whe didn't get the comics Green Goblin because Spider-Man was grounded in reality and it'd be quite unrealistic for a HUMAN to come up with a latex-like fabric that covers his whole body and manages to perfectly capture his facial expressions and allow light movements.

Seriously, dark_b, you're embarrasing youself. :doh:

Something looks really off with that Sinestro head on that body?

The suit is a real interesting design though, looking at the area from the ring to the wrist specifically reminds me of those images of synaptic light impulses running through neurons.
The whole suit seems to be an almost organic extension of that, as if taping directly into the brains impulses. Almost like light impulses will crackle and riple through the fibers of the suit.

The Guardian(s) look great with almost a distant and forlorn look which is totally appropriate. I can't tell if the back of their head is translucent but that would be cool. Again see above and what it exposes about brain activity and how the rings may tap into those "electric or light impulses fueled by will power.

I love the texture and quality of the Guardian(s) robes, I prefer the solid deep red to the more modern ones with the white bib down the front. These all red robes look really great! And are a nod to the classic. Also it's interesting how the size of the robe conceal their true size. Very intriguing.

No, whe didn't get the comics Green Goblin because Spider-Man was grounded in reality and it'd be quite unrealistic for a HUMAN to come up with a latex-like fabric that covers his whole body and manages to perfectly capture his facial expressions and allow light movements.

I think that's because he (Sinestro) is slightly looking down. Come on, it's just concept art to give those working on the project (specifically the director, costume, and character designers) an idea of how it could look.

A subtilety of the design is that the green kind of looks like the scull of an animal/alien, which to me indicates that he (Sinestor) already wants to instill fear in his opponent.

I will be truthful and telly you that I am not too crazy about them being tall (then again they could be any size they wanted). What is interesting and innovative is that the artist's take on their enlarged heads is a transparent bubble like protrusion with white (cloud like) extensions representing hair. The wrinkles on their faces show their age although how do you illustrate someone who is over 3 billion years old?

It's been a while since I read it, but yeah it does seem that's exactly where they are going with it. The translucent heads and then these costumes at least conceptually may be an extension of that visual idea and have the light synapses cary over into their costume design.

If you are going to have Isamot Kol, then you have to have his partner, Vath Sarn. I like Jack T. Chance and Rot Lop Fan for their unique oaths. Mogo is Mogo and I think it would just be impressive to show the diversity of the corps and, the fact that even a planet can be sentient is just thinking outside the box.

Fair enough. But I've always liked that their suits are created by the ring wearers imagination.

Mr. Earle
01-31-2010, 02:41 PM
With a face like that and a suit like that, Sinestro looks evil from the get go. Besides, i always took Sinestro for a very tidy and clean kind of guy. I mean, he wants to bring order to the universe right?
So i think that his suit should look more formal and strict instead of this mess. No mullet or goatee either. I just dont get what's the problem with the way his face looks in the comics that they had to change it.

Doctor Jones
01-31-2010, 02:56 PM
I also don't see the problem of changing it a bit either? I'd like to see something new. On film, I don't want to see the same thing I've seen a million times. Like the Joker, his original design is great and all, but the design in TDK was refreshing. It's new and unique but still Joker. Joker thinks of himself as a better class of criminal in every interpretation, yet in TDK he was a sweaty ghoul type looking clown.

So why can't Sinestro look a bit different? It's kind of boring seeing the same thing on screen exactly. There's apart of us who wants to see it, but I'm all for seeing something different.

Mr. Earle
01-31-2010, 03:07 PM
So adding a bit of facial hair is "something new and fresh"? Actually, its not even new, because he looks exactly like this:
http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/3492/20070920mingthemerciles.jpg

This is just change for the sake of change. Faithful concept art would be refreshing. Especially when adapting Sinestro faithfully would result in a better look and wouldnt hint at his villainy so much.

Doctor Jones
01-31-2010, 04:44 PM
It's not change for the sake of it. They changed it to see what else they could do with it. Bringing something new is fine to do. Seeing what I have seen a million times in the comic won't really bring much excitement to the character on screen for me.

Ace of Knaves
01-31-2010, 04:47 PM
I see what Earle is saying though.

Sinestro is all about order. And his suit looks a bit too busy and chaotic. I would of thought Sinestro's would be the most plain and well, boring for lack of a better word.

It is an awesome design though, just not really sure if it actually fits Sinestro's personality and what he is all about.

It's not change for the sake of it. They changed it to see what else they could do with it. Bringing something new is fine to do. Seeing what I have seen a million times in the comic won't really bring much excitement to the character on screen for me.And i repeat: giving Sinestro a beard is "something new"?
Lets give Bruce Wayne one in the sequel as well! Yes, EXCITING NEW THINGS! I see what Earle is saying though.

Sinestro is all about order. And his suit looks a bit too busy and chaotic. I would of thought Sinestro's would be the most plain and well, boring for lack of a better word.

It is an awesome design though, just not really sure if it actually fits Sinestro's personality and what he is all about.Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sinestro shouldnt look like a hippy, or a Ming copycat. The mustache and the simpler comics suit (or a suit similar to that) fit give him the strict, well groomed, upper class and arrogant look that he is supposed to have. Both his appearence and his suit in that pic give out the fact that he is evil.

Besides, even if that wasnt Sinestro, that suit is a mess. Appalling. Is that supposed to be edgy and trendy as opposed to the clear cut suits we have in the comics? Goddamnit...

The goatee was expected. The moustache would probably be considered lame by the General Audience.

The long hair is a big departure, but it fits their version of Sinestro: A proud, heroic and acclaimed warrior. However, this is very early concept art. It probably has been changed, especially with Mark Strong playing the character.

And the suit is supposed to look organic, like Tomar-Re's. People are overblowing Sinestro's obssesion with order.

It is a faithful concept, it still clearly looks like Sinestro, and as someone already said, his name is dead set giveaway to begin with, the dude may as well be wearing a sign around his neck saying ' ^ Bag Guy'.

But it doesnt make sense. Why tamper with perfection? Its not like his moustache was cheesy or unrealistic and had to be adapted for live action.

What do you mean overblowing his obsession with order? THAT is what drives Sinestro. That is why he goes against the Guardians, because he thinks their methods are not effective at bringing order to the universe. Order and control is what Sinestro is all about.

And for me, that suit looks the opposite of order and control. And considering the suits are created by the ring bearers imagination, it doesn't make sense.

Is it just me, or does the long hair, and goatee on Sinestro look photoshopped on? The hair from below his ears looks fuzzier, and more airbrushed, then the rest of his hair on top of his head, which looks my sharper. Same with his goatee, its fuzzy only on the chin part, the mustache part is sharp, and less hazy looking. You know what I mean? Like somebody airbrushed those parts on.

It's just concept art and there is no guarantee that it will end up that way. Furthermore there is so much shadow around the chin area that you really can't tell if he has a beard or not.

I don't know, I kind of like this new look for Sinestro better than his look from the comics. It makes him appear a little more badass, even with the mullet. And Jared Allen will tell you that a mullet can add to your badassery.

Often, Sinestro in the comics looks like a cross between Vincent Price and John Waters. Although I've always though he was a great character, I was never a big fan of his look. And I hope to God they never give him that awful black and blue costume with the jester collar.

For starters, his obssession with order has only been adressed recently. We don't even know if they're going for that route. Second, it's not because he's obssesed with order and control that his suit can't be organic looking. Tomar-Re's suit is similar, so, it could very well be simply what the Green Lantern Corps uniforms look like, for all that we know.

Actually i think they based Sinestro's design on Vincent Price.

The suit Kilowog is wearing in the concept art looks pretty basic like in the comics. Maybe they thought it looks too simple and they re trying to make them more high tech and advanced but looking like a symbiote is not the way to go. What's next, Guy without a jacket?

I personally find First Flight Sinestro perfect.

His suit is simple and serious, yet high tech, protective, and authoritative. And coupled with his face design, it all gives him a noble, badass and serious look. The concept looks ridiculous by comparison.

I also don't see the problem of changing it a bit either? I'd like to see something new. On film, I don't want to see the same thing I've seen a million times. Like the Joker, his original design is great and all, but the design in TDK was refreshing. It's new and unique but still Joker. Joker thinks of himself as a better class of criminal in every interpretation, yet in TDK he was a sweaty ghoul type looking clown.

So why can't Sinestro look a bit different? It's kind of boring seeing the same thing on screen exactly. There's apart of us who wants to see it, but I'm all for seeing something different.

This.

Perfection? No such thing exists, the point is the character in those mock ups is clearly Sinestro. Seriously a bigger change would be making him blonde, so the character mock up here has slightly more facial hair than in the comics, so freakin' what?. It's an adaptation.

Ace of Knaves
02-01-2010, 04:42 PM
I'm not bothered by the facial hair at all really. It's just the suit design there doesn't match Sinestro's personality. And the suits should be an indication of the ring wearer's personality to some extent.

I love all the concept art, though I'm pretty much indifferent towards sinestro's design.

I love the new facial hair, the suit is alright, though it's a little bit busy, but the mullet doesn't look good.

I don't love it, I don't hate it, and I'm not sure it'll be the final version.

The art they've released gives me alot of confidence in their vision and whatever they end up using for the final version, I'm sure it'll be badass.

that Sinestro Design is too MING-like. It's Ming from the Flash Movie with hair lol. And his costume is a little too flashy and modern for me. Looks like a suit someone half his age would where (I assume they will keep Sinestro significantly older than Hal).

Sinestro hates disorder so his clothes should be simple and striking. Also, Geoff Johns and Van Sciver said they were going for a militaristic, Hitler look (as far as hair and clothes) for Sinestro nowadays. They should stick to that.

I wonder if Geoff has any say in the designs? He should!

Webhead2006
02-05-2010, 11:52 AM
who knows man, plus like its been stated we dont know at what point in the design process these designs came from. So the look could be completely different once filming starts up next month. If not i dont see any real bad stuff in the looks the characters look as they should and will probably look great on screen. Also i said in a post the other week if this is what sinestro is going to go with long hair and a beard maybe they wanted to make sure he has a much different look then hector hammond. Who probably will be clean cut hair and clean shaven or just a stach.

2nd time you agreed with me in last few days. Great minds must think alike :)


One other thing about that Sinestro design I dont like... he TOTALLY looks EVIL. There is NO ONE except children who are gonna sit there, see Sinestro act the way he does and have this evil look and NOT think he is gonna turn out to be a bad guy.

And yes, I know this design is by no means final. I am just commenting on it, not acting as if this is his look already. DC does put care into movies (at least lately) so I am sure we will get a pretty comic-accurate-looking film.

Eh, I don't really care for that SInestro design. At first I thought I was looking at the Leader or something. To me that classic English look comes off as boring on screen. I mean people complain about the mullet bearded Sinestro coming off as evil to begin with, that looks evil to me too. A man who had high eyebrows and a thin mustache who carries himself straight and who thinks he's better than the corps will already give off the sense he is a bad guy.

One thing to consider, is that Sinestro would be one of the most experienced Green Lanterns (in fact considered the greatest) at the time Jordan meets him. Looking regal would just be a reflection of his attitude. Unbeknownst to Jordan or anyone in the Corps, Sinestro is actually the ruler of his planet. Why wouldn't he look regal, especially before his subjects?

I mean maybe it happened in some old comic book, but in the current comics there is no way this could have happened. But he would definitely be revered by the other lanterns as the best of them all, and that would give him the confidence and arrogance that would make him look regal.
