on February 5, 2014

There’s more news regarding Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson playing Green Lantern John Stewart in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel and/or Justice League film(s). IGN reported on The Rock’s Instagram post where he randomly name drops John Stewart in a hashtag. For those who missed that, you can see more about it in this article.
Via Twitter, The Rock responded to IGN, saying:

As was mentioned in last update’s Oa, By the Way… The Rock has announced that he’s locked up to work with DC Comics and Warner Bros. and he’s been mentioning Green Lantern John Stewart repeatedly through social media. He’s either a really evil man to tease and troll fans in this manner (which I doubt), or he’s going to be playing our favorite Green Lantern (a character he’s been desiring to play) in upcoming films. Naturally, the Internet is ablaze with the news, so here are some sites to check out:

If The Rock is going to play John Stewart, I hope he is clean shaven and with hair. I always preferred that look to the bald John with the goatee.

Oa, by the way

Speaking of all this Green Lantern movie news, I thought I’d share a Black Nerd video that addresses prospective properties for DC Comic movies. If you don’t know or remember Black Nerd, he made it into this updates Oa, By the Way…

This time, he goes through a list of six DC heroes he feels deserve movies. Guess who lands the number two spot! Check out the video.
