The most dedicated fans of DC Comics Green Lantern have been getting an early look at the hero's upcoming Hollywood blockbuster in the pages of his monthly comics of late, and this week, they got an early peek at a fan favorite character previously hidden in the background.

"Green Lantern" writer and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns gave the particulars of Tomar Re's film incarnation in the back of "Green Lantern" #61 this week, a profile that's taken to the web thanks to The Daily Blam.

"Growing up on the planet Xudar, Tomar-Re comes from a peaceful avian race that focuses their efforts on the arts and sciences instead of war," Johns wrote in the piece. "His nature to examine everything has led the Guardians of the Universe to appoint him the archivist and protector of the sacred Book of Oa. When not studying the nature of the Corps, Tomar-Re patrols the sector of 2813 where he developed a close friendship with neighboring sector 2814's Green Lantern, Abin Sur. Tomar has taken an interest in Abin's replacement, Hal Jordan. Though Hal is not one for details, Tomar hopes to teach Hal what it means to be a Green Lantern."

For more on the film, check out the Daily Blam or pick up "Green Lantern" #61 in stores now. And for all the "Green Lantern" movie news, check back with CBR and Spinoff Online in the weeks ahead.
