Very little is known about Warner Bros’ and Zack Snyder’s plans for Green Lantern in its upcoming Justice League movies. But it appears that actor Tyrese Gibson could be the man for the job.
Speaking on Larry King Now this week, Tyrese Gibson said he’d spoken to Warner Bros. recently and has a shot at the role.
Tyrese: You know, there have been other artists, actors and actresses who have put up images of them as a comic book character and ended up landing a role. So I was like, it’s worth giving it a shot.
Larry: So, have you heard from Zack Snyder?
Larry: Maybe he’s watching.
Tyrese: I did meet with Warner Brothers, though.
Tyrese: And…um…shoot me a prayer, Larry.
Larry: You got a shot?
Tyrese: I do.
Of course, which Green Lantern he would portray is also up in the air. But, if selected, he’ll likely portray the only known black Green Lantern — and the first black DC Comics hero — John Stewart.SuperFable
