Tyrese Confirms Meeting with WB about Green Lantern Corps
on July 25, 2015
Tyrese Gibson has confirmed that he has met with Warner Bros. more than once about playing Green Lantern. During an interview with Collider, Tyrese said that…
“I’ve already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we’ll see what happens. I do believe that there needs to be more black superheroes out there, but that’s not even my motivation. I think I would be the best Green Lantern and based on my fans and supporters that spent around $6 billion in box office receipts, I feel like there’s a fanbase of fans out there waiting to see me put on this green suit and do my thing. So I would love to confirm something today but I can’t. We’ll just keep following up.”
I think we John Stewart fans can rest at ease about seeing John Stewart in film. It looks like that is definitely going to happen. It seems Warner Bros. has heard our protestations of support for the character. Let’s hope we won’t have to wait until 2020 to see John Stewart. It continues to be a long wait for definitive casting news and information about exactly how Warner Bros. will approach the Green Lantern Corps movie. In the meantime, go read Green Lantern: Lost Army!
