Tyrese Gibson Continues His Green Lantern Campaign with an Added Hint


We reported recently that Tyrese Gibson had talked about him being cast as John Stewart’s Green Lantern and more of his cryptic messages. Well now on his Instagram he’ss at it again, this time he is supporting another rumor, which is the possibility of a Green Lantern Corps film.

#TheOath has been taken…..

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

    Yeah, he’s just teasing us at this point. I pretty much knew he’d gotten it, back when he went silent after saying he was meeting with WB several months back. They probably had him sign the usual non-disclosure riggamaro. Now he’s doing the same stuff that the Rock was doing with Black Adam.
    But now my question is: is that Chris Pine at the bottom of that tweeted pic?

      I really hope you’re wrong about him being officially cast. 🙁

      And yeah it is. Someone made some fan art of Pine a while ago, before the rumours.

        I’m pretty excited about this, actually. I think Tyrese is gonna do a great job.

    • Pine has been rumored to be Hal Jordan since the first Green Lantern movie and I honestly won’t believe neither casting until it’s officially confirmed by WB, because Tyrese did the same thing he’s doing now with Luke Cage: http://splashpage.mtv.com/2011/07/01/tyrese-gibson-luke-cage-movie/

    i genuinely blame the animated JL cartoon for this. If you just get the average non-comic book reader and ask them “who should play the black guy from the cartoon” they just automatically go straight to the only african american actor they can think of, regardless of talent or age and that puts us in this situation with Tyrese Gibson. Plenty of actors out there who can do a far better job, younger and will have more longevity in the franchise. With Marvel going out and grabbing A list actors and actors with A list potential, its very disheartening seeing DC scrape the bottom of the C list due to a few twitter people getting all hyped over a photoshopped picture. I just hope DC is smart enough to continue with their plan, Chris Pine is a fantastic choice, hopefully they go for someone in the same calibre.
