UPDATE! Tyrese Gibson Continues to Hint at Green Lantern Role

Tyrese Gibson has once again taken to his Instagram account to post a rendering of himself as Green Lantern John Stewart. His similar post yesterday really got the rumor mill churning, and he’s not letting up. Along with the image, he had this to say:

“Loving this energy….. Shout to @_raphael_leite_ Idris fall back I got this! “In the brightest day, in the blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let all who worship evil’s might, Beware of the power of Green Lantern’s light!””

Green Lantern remains the only Justice League member not revealed as cast for the upcoming Justice League film. Warner Bros. has been very hush mouthed about the Emerald Crusader, a crucial member of the League, but things can’t stay secret forever. With Idris Elba, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chadwick Boseman, and now Tyrese directly referencing John Stewart, it’s looking like he will be the cinematic Green Lantern, which would make a lot of sense, as John Stewart offers a clean platform removed from the failed 2011 Green Lantern film, while giving general audiences a face many among them know and have missed, due to his prominent role in the Bruce Timm Justice League and Justice League Unlimited shows.

Keep an eye on GreenLantern.Co for the latest regarding John Stewart movie news.

UPDATE:

Tyrese has been posting loads of John Stewart content on his Instagram, so I suggest fans keep an eye on it, which can be found here. Of special note, is a meeting Tyrese had with DC Comics Publisher Jim Lee. This leads me to believe that, at the very least, Tyrese has met with WB officials to discuss playing Green Lantern. Perhaps he’s already been cast but cannot announce it. Along with the above picture, he had this to say.

“It’s not everyday you get to go to someone on the level of Jim Lee aka @JimLeeArt home and watch him design and sketch a comic book cover…


Oa, by the way

Hey, guess what. Tyrese isn’t the only person after the John Stewart role. According to the large Twitter acount Superhero Feed, Michael Jai White has reportedly also said he’s trying to be cast for the role.

“MICHAEL JAI WHITE says he “loves DC” and is looking into playing GREEN LANTERN!”

Two big stars talking about playing John Stewart on the same day? Whatever could this mean? What it looks like is that WB is right now looking into casting for that character!

Tyrese Gibson Teases Green Lantern John Stewart Role

Green Lantern Tyrese

There’s more movie news, Lantern fans. Tyrese Gibson took to his Instagram account and shared an image of himself as the Emerald Crusader, Green Lantern John Stewart, along with the caption, “Rumor has it that.” This is currently going viral on the internet, just as the Dwayne Johnson John Stewart rumors did, with over 25,000 likes in a matter of a few hours. So many stars have hinted at John Stewart. Is it safe to assume that he will be the cinematic Green Lantern? It’s looking more and more like that’s the case.

Sound off in the comments section about this latest development!

Green Lantern Corps #38 Review

The review for Green Lantern Corps #38 is ready. Go over and see what .Co has to say.

“Even if DC comes out with something huge for John after this series, I will be sad to see these creators leave the book. To me, no one has done better with John Stewart in comic books. It’s clear they all care about the character and genuinely do the best they can, which gives us incredible results, since they’re all very talented. Green Lantern Corps is my favorite comic book, and no matter what comes, no matter how great it may be, I will always look back at this run with extreme fondness.”

John Stewart’s origin will be retold/re-imagined for the very first time in Secret Origins #9, which is due out on January 28th. I think that is a really big deal for John Stewart fans. Be sure to pick that issue up, and to check out GreenLantern.Co for a review.


Oa, by the way

The covers for the Green Lantern Corps “Convergence” issue have been shown. Take a gander at them.

Also, the trade paperback Green Lantern Corps Volume 5: Uprising has been released. Be sure to buy this volume, which continues the Van Jensen, Bernard Chang, and Marcelo Maiolo run of Green Lantern Corps.

Green Lantern Corps #38 Preview

Green Lantern Corps #38 Preview

Newsarama.Com has the preview for the latest issue of Green Lantern Corps, in which John Stewart is finally declared by the Guardians to be the leader of the Corps. It’s not quite as big a moment as I thought it might be, but I think Van Jensen’s story may be in the fast lane now, due to him having to wrap it up fairly quickly. I’m upset to see that Bernard Chang did not draw this entire issue, but Marcelo Maiolo’s coloring is ever splendid. Go take a look at the preview for yourself, and be sure to pick this issue up this coming Wednesday.

Green Lantern: New Guardians #37 Review

Green Lantern John Stewart plays a key role in the latest issue of New Guardians, so .Co is here to cover the story with a full review.

“This issue is more or less entertaining, but it does have some big problems, with the biggest offender being the absolutely hideous cover. I don’t know how it ever got approved, but it reinforces the feeling that DC doesn’t really care much about this title anymore. The interior art suffers, and the extremely sloppy transition into the Highfather battle holds this issue back, too. The pluses are seeing Kyle and Carol’s relationship develop, even if that development happens to be their first real fight, and a fairly strong John Stewart appearance that continues to link him to characters like Carol and Saint Walker, thereby making him feel less estranged from everything, as he was during the Geoff Johns era.”
