I know you comic book types are sensitive about spoilers and direct sunlight, so even though the first picture of Kilowog from Green Lantern has hit the web, I put it after the jump, in case you want to try to avoid it completely until the movie comes out next June. If you’re unfamiliar with Kilowog, here’s what I learned about him in the last five minutes. (*takes deep puff on inhaler*):
A towering alien with a brutish and porcine appearance, Kilowog is renowned throughout the Green Lantern Corps as the primary trainer of the Corps’ newest recruits. The Guardians of the Universe recruited Kilowog, a gifted genetic scientist, from the planet Bolovax Vik, located in Space Sector 674. In addition to serving with distinction as the Green Lantern of that sector, Kilowog also began to spend extensive periods of time on the Green Lantern Corps’ home planet of Oa instructing new recruits on how to handle and best utilize their power rings. In this capacity, Kilowog acted as the first trainer to a young Hal Jordan, the ring-recruited successor to the slain Abin Sur of Ungara, the Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814. Kilowog and his new recruit helped the Guardians confront Abin Sur’s murderer, the hive mind interstellar malefactor known as Legion.[Wicky P]

It’s a little different than earlier concept art, but not by much. He kind of looks like a cross between Shrek and the Warriors from the Fifth Element. Actually, he kind of looks like Ernest Borgnine:
I’m assuming that means Kilowog masturbates a lot.
*Also, perhaps take this with a grain of salt, as some are questioning whether this is an official image like ComicBookMovie says it is.
