Green Lantern concept art reveals aliens galore

02.01.2010

No one knows sci-fi like the folks over at io9, so I’m inclined to believe their claim that these new pictures are indeed concept art from Ryan Reynold’s GREEN LANTERN. They showcase a whole host of aliens, including the concept behind Mark Strong’s sinestro, and with the right CGI/prosthetics, they could look pretty damn cool onscreen.

GREEN LANTERN is going to be a superhero movie not quite like anything we’ve seen before, as the only aliens we’ve seen in our DC/Marvel movies to date for the most part has been a creepy crawly bit of black goo in SPIDER-MAN 3 and of course, the alien-in-chief himself, Superman.

This should be quite a different experience however, with every other Lantern but Hal Jordan being some crazy looking alien. Will it work? I’ve no idea, but I have faith in Ryan Reynolds until he gives me a reason not to.

Extra Tidbit: I'm sorry, but I didn't even know where to start looking these guys' names up. Fans help me out?

Venom Lantern?

Is it just me or does the Sinestro costume stike a little to close to being "organic/symbiote"y? There's really no reason for that type of structure. I like the slightly "armor-ish" look you can see in the Abin-Sur picture, more how the Galactic police "should" look. I don't mind the texturing. I think if they borrowed from the armor designs (vs. Spider-man)in Crysis, it might look a little cooler. Just my opinion, fwiw.

@ NeuroticNikk

no, green lantern and silver surfer have nothing in common san the fact that they are both set in space pretty often, so, if you're kind of retarded then yeah, they're totally alike.

first one: Kilawog, purple headed guy Abin Sur-Jordan gets ring from him, Beak guy Tomar Tu or Tomar Re, weird looking Guardians of the Galaxy, and John Travolta as Sinestro, Aw geez!!

Sorry to sound ignorant, as I am NOT a DC fan, but isn't Green Lantern DC's equivalent to MARVEL'S Silver Surfer?? If so, this is gonna suck to cosmic proportions.

That Kilowog looks just like Aknot the Mangalore from the Fifth Element...The inclusion of Travolta as Sinestro reveals this to be fan art. Not bad though.

Great

I really like these designs! If they appear in this form in the final movie I would be very happy :)
Specially like Tomar-Re and the Guardian...

As a Green Lantern Junie, I'll make some astute observations. Kilowog should be more pink, otherwise, he's great. The Guardians shouldn't look so much like elves. The "organic" suits look like they tried to rip off the Guyver and were designed in the 90's.

good

im not terribly well versed on GL lore, but the guardian looks better than Ive ever seen or mentally pictured, and some of the alien designs are pretty nice.... but im not so sure about sinestro, I like the shorter hair, frankly, and I really don't like the look of his suit ... it looks like it tie-dyed to look like the matrix code.... give him a generally solid color design like all the other GLs suits.

I was afraid they were gonna ditch sinestros skin coloring, so Im glad that looks right,

These concepts are great! Even if they are experimental, or just fan art. I like the look of the Guardian, but like someone mentioned, they should be a tad bit shorter. Sinestro looks like a villain already, which is fine with me, and I prefer his hair to be long, over the shorter style.

Although, wasnt there a report recently that said sinestro WASNT the villain the first movie? because if so, maybe they should go for a less obviously evil look in the first film.

@rbevanx

so, you have no idea what green lantern is or what the characters are about, or what they look like in the comic books, but you know that this will be campy by the very early, experimental concept art?

wow, then you're just a fucking genius aren't you.

I'm not buying 50 years of comics, just to get an idea of this rubbish.

Yeah by this concept art it looks rubbish lol.

I don't need to use big words to reply back.

The foul language you used just made me laugh if anything lol.

I read books not space cartoons.

Cheers for the offer but I would rather read something like The Great Gatsby.

Maybe you should try looking it up before crapping on something that has a 60+ year history.

Fan Art.

This popped up on the GL Corps forum last week unverified, so it's a good bet it's just decent Fan Art.

Yeah, it is a nice perk. Googling "green lantern weird alien names" didn't quite get me what I wanted.

The last one is Ming The Merciless, played obviously by John Travolta. Hope that helps.
