It has been confirmed! Michael Clarke Duncan will, as previously rumored, provide the voice of Kilowog in this summer's DC Comics adaptation Green Lantern.

Green Lantern is currently in post-production, and only recently confirmed Geoffrey Rush as the voice of Goldfish-headed Tomar-Re. No other voice cast has been announced, though a majority of the characters in Green Lantern are CGI creations. Michael Clarke Duncan received the offer to voice Kilowog today (Tuesday). Negotiations are still taking place.

Kilowog, who is seen snorting on Ryan Reynolds's Hal Jordan in the first teaser trailer, is an intergalactic drill sergeant who trains members of the Green Lantern Corps.

Warner Bros. remains hopeful that they can complete the movie's numerous effects shots in time for release.

Green Lantern was released June 17th, 2011 and stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Temuera Morrison, Jenna Craig, Jon Tenney, Mike Doyle. The film is directed by Martin Campbell.

    @bawnian-dexeus In the comics he's fairly serious, but in Justice League/Unlimited, when him and Flash are around each other it's one joke after another :P Either way is cool with me.

    @dan1 Think he'll be super wild and serious or will there be a comedic approach to him? Other than the word Poozers.

    Pop quiz: What is the name of the lantern that trained Kilowog? This person is also why Kilowog calls people Poozers.

    Hint: The character shares a name with an actor from Full Metal Jacket.

    Freaking Sweet.. Good thing its not like Green Lantern Emerald Knight which by the way looks freaking sweet as well, not talking crap about the movie cant wait to see it but they went for Henry Rollins as Kilowog his voice doesn't match the character but whatever the rest of the cast for Emerald Knights is awsome.

    Umm, it's Kilowog. If you're gonna report something, at least fact check the correct spelling of the character name if you're gonna use it multiple times. *pushes up glasses
