Green Lantern has been the center of attention as of late, with rumors leaking out that WB plans to reboot the character and possibly bring in more Lanterns.
The latest swirling rumor comes from actor Tyrese Gibson‘s Instagram account. He’s posted a picture saying that the oath has been taken and with that comes some fan art featuring two Green Lantern’s and a 2020 release date.
Tyrese has been pretty vocal about wanting to play John Stewart, so it makes sense if he finally landed the role.
Plus, there’s been more rumors coming out about Chris Pine possibly taking on the role of Hal Jordan, which may or may not be confirmed sometime soon.
I’ve never dug too deep into the Green Lantern world, so I can’t comment on if I think Tyrese is a good fit for Stewart or not. I love the guy in the Fast & Furious franchise, but there he’s mostly added for comedic effect.
Can he take on the weight of an important DC character that has ties with the Justice League? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
