Did Tyrese Just Confirm He'll Be 'Green Lantern'?


On Wednesday, Tyrese posted a pic of the iconic character on Instagram, with the caption, "Shit just got real - #doubleoath #doubletrouble #GreenLantern #WB." Many have been speculating that Warner Bros.' reboot in the Green Lantern franchise will feature two different members of the Green Lantern Corps, and that Tyrese could be playing one of them.

Man I hope not. I've seen Annapolis and while he's ok at playing marine characters with stoic personalities it's not his strength and there are a million and one better choices for John Stewart.

Look toward the Morris Chestnut's and Idris Elba's of the world.

Eh, Tyrese Gibson is all right, but the last Green Lantern movie just settled for a lot of things. I'd be happier with Common as John Stewart.

Common is already cast in Suicide Squad. Not exactly sure as to who he is playing but he is definitely not John.

I think he has the passion he seems from his tweets fully into the character I believe it could elevate him. I'm a sucker for those truly motivated >.<

He does seem awfully passionate about it. He seems to genuinely want it. He wrote an "open letter" to Forbes on his Facebook about their "Why Tyrese shouldn't be Green Lantern" article. Whether he gets it or not I have a new found respect for the guy for trying. Especially when the rest of Hollywood can't stop b-tching about comic book movies.

Maybe, but I rather it be a new and upcoming actor.

Double_O_Revan2179d ago

Ha ahaha ha ha! I sure as hell hope not.

Idris Elba wouldve been perfect, but he's locked into the Thor films.

I'm keen to see how Tyrese plays John though.
