New concept art from the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League offers fans a detailed look at Green Lantern Kilowog.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut ends with Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne meeting Harry Lennix’s Martian Manhunter, but the scene was originally intended to feature John Stewart, one of the most famous members of the Green Lantern Corps. However, Snyder’s version of Justice League did end up featuring two other classic Green Lantern characters — Yalan Gur and Kilowog.
Earlier this week, Justice League concept artist Jerad S.Marantz took to his official Instagram page to post some of his work for the Zack Snyder-directed movie. The artist shared two of his concepts for Kilowog, revealing that he teamed up with costume designer Michael Wilkinson to create the look of the Green Lantern hero. You can check out the artwork below.
Unfortunately, Kilowog’s Justice League appearance is only a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Easter egg as the character is seen dead over the remains of the Hall of Justice during the scene in which Cyborg has a vision of the Knightmare timeline. Meanwhile, Yalan Gur can be seen in action during the “History Lesson” sequence before meeting his end at the hands of a young Darkseid.
Here is the official synopsis for the Zack Snyder cut:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons and Ciarán Hinds.
