Last month, a rumor surfaced that Green Lantern Corps. will feature both Hal Jordan and John Stewart, with Chris Pine reportedly attached to play Hal Jordan and Tyrese Gibson playing John Stewart. Some believed that Warner Bros. was going to announce the casting at Comic-Con earlier this month, but that never happened. Do you think Tyrese Gibson is the perfect choice for John Stewart?

During the epic DC and Warner Bros. panel in Hall H at Comic-Con, an early rumor was confirmed when it was announced that the upcoming Green Lantern reboot is officially titled Green Lantern Corps. Nothing further was revealed about the movie, and no casting was announced. This makes sense, as the film isn't scheduled to hit theaters until June 2020. That's a full five years away.
Still, many thought a Green Lantern actor would be announced at Warner Bros.' epic event, which did tease both of next year's big DC releases, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, with never-before-seen footage (which may or may not be available on the internet in the very near future). An earlier report claimed that both John Stewart and Hal Jordan will headline this sci-fi superhero adventure. And it has been widely rumored that these characters will be played by Tyrese Gibson and Chris Pine, respectively.Read More
It's unclear if Tyrese Gibson is just messing with people's minds, or if he knows something the rest of us don't. He has shared on Instagram a new piece of fan art that depicts himself as Green Lantern, John Stewart, and next to him is Chris Pine as Hal Jordan. This, of course, feeds into the swirl of recent rumors on the Internet in regards to DC Comics planned reboot. Will both actors be announced soon? Is this part of DC and Warner Bros. plans for Comic-Con 2015?
The Green Lantern (Reboot) rumors have been two fold as of late. Earlier in the week it was reported that this new take on the popular DC comic book won't just revolve around a single Green Lantern. In an attempt to distance itself from the 2011 bomb, it will go in a different direction and bring in both Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Not only that, the movie also plans to utilize a third human Green Lantern by introducing Guy Gardner to the big screen. The story is said to be about the Green Lantern Corps, and their place in the DC Cinematic Universe. One or more of the 'human' Lanterns will first be introduced in Justice League Part 1 or Justice League Part 2, as they come to warn earth about a threat from deep space. But who will be part of Justice League? Tyrese Gibson or Chris Pine?Read More
Universal Pictures has optioned the action spec script Desert Eagle, written by Tyrese Gibson and Mike Le, with Tyrese Gibson attached to star. This action-thriller has been in the works for several years, with Tyrese Gibson briefly mentioning the project during our visit to the set of Legion way back in 2008. The actor/screenwriter will also serve as an executive producer, with Matthew Stuecken and Josh Campbell (The Cellar) signing on to rewrite the script.
The story centers on two border patrol agents who investigate a drug cartel operating on a Native American casino. Scott Stuber is producing through his Bluegrass Films banner, while Tyrese Gibson serves as an executive producer through his Voltron Filmz company. Mike Le wrote the Black List script Patient Zero, which is currently in the works at Screen Gems with Natalie Dormer and Matt Smith currently attached to star.Read More
After the 2011 Green Lantern debacle, Warner Bros. made sure to give themselves plenty of time to craft a new Green Lantern Reboot to fit in with its DC Comics movie universe. The do-over was part of the studio's lengthy announcement in October, which mapped out this superhero world until the year 2020, when the new Green Lantern will hit theaters. Green Lantern was the only project in that lineup that didn't have a star attached, but, last weekend, a new contender emerged when Tyrese Gibson started posting artwork depicting himself as John Stewart, which he has continued to do through his Instagram account over the past few days. Today, however, the actor posted a photo of the Warner Bros. lot, with the caption "I don't talk... I move... #GreenLanternMission," hinting he is actually meeting with the studio about playing Green Lantern.
Naturally, it hasn't even been confirmed if this Green Lantern will be John Stewart, and not Hal Jordan, but it would make sense that the studio wants a completely different version of Green Lantern moving forward, so they can continue to put Ryan Reynolds' incarnation in their rear view mirror. While it may seem a bit early to start casting for a movie that won't hit theaters for five years, the entire Justice League, including Green Lantern, are rumored to assemble for the first time at the end of next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will lead into Justice League Part 1. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has already wrapped principal photography, but there will likely be reshoots happening at some point this year, when this scene featuring every Justice League member may be shot.Read More
