New 'Green Lantern' Poster Puts Spotlight On Tomar-Re

Green LanternEarlier today, when we posted the extended trailer for "Green Lantern" that's been making the rounds on television, I mentioned how great it was to see a little more of Tomar-Re and Kilowog. Now it looks like we could be getting even more of the former, courtesy of a new "Green Lantern" poster that puts the spotlight on the finned alien from Xudar.

Debuting over at Yahoo Movies, the "Green Lantern" poster has Tomar-Re front and center, arm cocked back back and ring ready.

And while Tomar-Re has received a bit of a makeover for the live-action movie, it looks much of his character's comic book history with Hal Jordan could be making a faithful leap to the big screen.

In the DC Comics universe, Tomar-Re was one of the first aliens to greet Hal Jordan after his arrival on Oa, the homeworld of the Green Lantern Corps. In the latest trailer, that looks to be the case in the film, too.

It's also worth noting that Tomar-Re had a big role to play in Superman's history, too (or rather, the history of his homeworld) — so it will be interesting to see if any of that comes into play in the new DC movie universe.

"Green Lantern" hits theaters June 3.
