Kilowog might have a voice in Michael Clarke Duncan

Mar. 29, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Our friends over at Latino Review are reporting that they've heard from a few sources that Michael Clarke Duncan is being pursued to voice Kilowog in the upcoming GREEN LANTERN.

Nothing's official yet, but certainly the dude sounds (and for that matter looks) the part, so it's an easy match to see if it does turn out to be the case.

But is it just me, or does it seem kind of late to just now be finding a voice actor for this part? I get that filming has wrapped, and Kilowog is an entirely CGI creation, but it would seem to be bit a bit late, no? Though I guess the film doesn't actually come out until June.

Think John Coffey is a good fit here? I can't imagine there would be any protest if this came to fruition. Are you guys excited for GREEN LANTERN as a whole? How about compared to CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR and FIRST CLASS?

Extra Tidbit: That CGI Lantern suit still just irks me every time I see it.

Not the worst choice, I could see that.

BUT I would very much PREFER JOHN GOODMAN.

I couldn't care less about Green Lantern. It might be fun on Blu-ray later this year - I'll throw it in my Netflix queue. I just can't get past how silly his costume looks. And the tone seems very cartoonish, forced and bland so far. I might be wrong (I HOPE I'm wrong), but I'm not shelling out $14 to find out.

Thor and Captain America is where my shit's at. I'm not sure about First Class yet...

Hey Half, what kind of low-rent theatre do you go see your movies at??? I haven't seen 5$ movies for like the last 6+ years. Cheap Tuesday have been over 6$ for a long time now and regular nights are 13$. That's without the AVX or IMAX or 3D or DBOX surcharge...

All of 2011's Comic Book adaptations seem sketchy to me. Great promotional material, a good movie does not make.

My expectations are extremely low for this movie after that awful trailer, which sucks because I've wanted a GL movie for years. Its a shame this apparently is what were going to have to settle for. MCD as Kilowog is OK I guess, but man is Ryan Reynolds just all wrong for this character.

I'll be there fo sho

Ok here's my list, in order and why:
1. Captain American - I like the era, and Evans is cool
2. X-Men - it's xmen! Once again I like era, it brings a whole new feel to the series. Interested in the back story of Pro.X & Mag
3. Green Lantern - Ryan Reynolds is gold! Plain and simple
4. Thor - the director Ken Branagh, it's a odd choice but he's talented. And Portman, she's gold too.
I feel they all will be good in their own right. I will admit I'm nervous about all the CGI in GL but Im

This movie is at the back of the pack in the comic book movies this year. And the fact I have seen pretty much 0 marketing for this movie doesnt help

His deep voice I think suits Kilowog. And I still Duncan was a very good Kingpin after all these years. Everyone was complaining that he wasn't white but the body stature suited the character well

No...

I'm not feeling this casting choice whatsoever. I just don't hear Duncan when I look at Kilowog. I feel his voice is too deep, not gruff enough, and generic for this type of character.

And to you pricks saying this movie looks like shit: it's YOUR fault the source material is disregarded for films and we end up with shit like "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". Decide what the fuck you want- an adaptation of the comic(that is obviously good enough on it's own considering they feel it needs a film),

I wish you people would just shut up and TRY to enjoy a damn film.

Honestly, GL looks shit. It will be a DVD watch for me.

Let me be the first to say Michael Clarke Duncan for Apocalypse if they ever bring him into the X-Men films.

I will be seeing this movie no matter what and while I can't say that I am currently excited about it, I'm still willing to reserve judgment until I see it. I still think it will be better than First Class though. And Thor FTW.

Couldn't care less who voices which alien in Green Lantern.

Green Lantern might be one of the very few DC characters I actually like BUT I'm sadly far from impressed by what we've seen so far. I say Captain America and Thor look waaay better.

As for the Tidbit, I too am irked by the CGI suits. I only hope they find a way to make them look good on the big screen cause if not it won't help the movie by having everybody making fun of this.

as far as the article itself

i like MCD but i agree with cpt. highpressure...maybe too deep of a voice and too obvious a choice. CapAm is 1st day, 1st showing...Thor is 1st wknd...First Class is a rental...GL is a theatrical viewing, whenever i have time.

Captain America!

Before seeing any footage I was looking forward to GL the most (big GL fan), but now after seeing the trailers for all the movies, Captain America looks the best. I do think Thor is going to be pretty awesome as well and am surprise more people aren't interested

Movie's going to own!

Michael Clarke Duncan has a great, memorable voice and his voice seems very appropriate for the size and the appearance of the character. It's very inspired to tell you the truth.

I don't understand where all this hate is coming from. I think this film looks the best out of the bunch, but I think all of them are going to be amazing. I am also being bias because Reynolds is one of my favorite actors.
