Tyrese Gibson Confirms He Has Met With Warner Bros. For Green Lantern Role

The only disappointment felt in San Diego Comic Con was that we had no confirmation on Chris Pine, Tyrese Gibson or anyone being cast as Green Lantern, however that disappointment was momentarily healed with the announcement that we were getting a Green Lantern Corps movie. This news of course gives us a huge opportunity to make as many Green Lantern fans happy as we can have all the Earth bound Green Lantern’s in one film as well as the rest of the Green Lantern Corps.

This was followed by rumors that not only is Chris Pine up for the role of Steve Trevor for the Wonder Woman film but he also has the option to pick Hal Jordan as well as Tyrese Gibson teasing with posters of him as John Stewart and Chris Pine as Hal Jordan.

Collider recently reported that Tyrese Gibson had in fact met with Warner Brothers but he was not able to confirm if he was in fact up for the role.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

  • This is great. He has all but confirmed it.

    • In the bag. And, it’s what the people want. And, he’ll do an amazing job as John Stewart. Who knew the Coca~Cola kid would grow to be one of our favorite super heroes? And, one of our favorite Black Super Heroes?

        hes not what everyone wants, most people are actually quite unhappy with it.

    This is great ?! Are you guys out of your mind ? No disrespect for your opinions, but Tyrese is a flat actor, always making joke here and there a la Will Smith, this guy is probably a wrong choice for GL, and if he thinks he’s the one that can bring 6 billions dollars in F&F franchise he must not only eat cereal but he must be on crack too… tsss that’s ridiculous there’s plenty of good black actor that can portray John in a GL adaptation… but Tyrese ?! Common, please… we’ll see but choosing this guy over plenty good actors would be wrong.
