The Green Lantern Movie Just Got Unappetizing



?I don’t trust much at ComicBookMovie, but I’m willing to trust this pic of the beaked Green Lantern Tomar Re from the live-action movie because 1) it was obviously scanned from some magazine and 2) First Showing saw the character at an early press event screener thing, and confirm it’s really real. So with its validity no longer in question, can I question why they decided to make Tomar look like dead and plucked baby chicken? I’m all for weird-looking aliens, but this guy is fucking gross. I’m afraid I’m going to get salmonella by just looking at him.
