I have no idea how reliable the source is but this would be an interesting take for a film franchise...

I think this concept would work better as an "anthology" tv series than as a string of movies, but budgeting something like this would be insane so it'll never happen.

Then again, with what Game of Thrones and Walking Dead have going on, it could be possible.

Tyrese Gibson Teases Green Lantern Announcement

SuperHeroHype

Jun 26, 2015

Seems like Tyrese Gibson is taking a page from his fellow Furious 7 star Vin Diesel and is now teasing fans on social media about a potential role in a comic book movie, namely as Green Lantern in the DC Cinematic Universe with this Instagram post:

Not only is that a fan depiction of Gibson as John Stewart, but it’s him paired alongside fan art of Chris Pine as Hal Jordan. This lines up with recent rumors that say Pine negotiating to play Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman was, in fact, a smokescreen to block the fact that Warner Bros. wants him as Green Lantern, and that there will be more than one central Lantern.

“There are certain things I can’t speak on,” Tyrese told Entertainment Tonight. “But I will say, however this works out, it’s definitely the fans’ fault. I was at home minding my own business and fans start creating these fan-made videos of me as Green Lantern and I looked into it. I’ve been a fan of the Green Lantern. I took the oath, and I had a meeting at Warner Bros. and certain things were said and talked about. We’ll just see what happens.”

Gibson has played supporting roles as soldier Robert Epps in Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise as well as the part of Roman Pearce in four of the seven Fast & Furious movies, including the most recent seventh entry which has brought in over $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

“Listen, these muscles are here and they’re ready to be used,” he pitched. “There are lot of people, domestically and internationally, who’s got love with your boy. I’m coming into this thing with some fans and some box office receipts behind my name and I say that proudly and humbly. I just think I deserve a shot at suiting up and becoming the Green Lantern.”

Gibson would not be the first recording artist-turned-actor to be considered for the role of John Stewart, as hip hop star Common was cast in 2007 for George Miller’s aborted Justice League: Mortal film. So can we look forward to seeing Gibson onstage at Hall H for Comic-Con International next month?

“You never know,” Tyrese said. “I might be there on the other side of an announcement. You never know.”

While it is unknown if any members of the Green Lantern Corps will make an appearance in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, they will play a central role in director Zack Snyder’s two-part Justice League film, part one of which is scheduled to open on November 10, 2017 with part two following on June 14, 2019, with a solo Green Lantern movie the following year.

Call me a JLU purist but John Stewart is the best Lantern. By far.

The only GL worse than John in the comics was Guy. Even G'nort was better than Guy, and Hal and John were totally right on the subject in YJ.

I'll take your word for it. I don't read or care about the comics.

JLU John Stewart > GLTAS Hal Jordan.

From IGN:

Green Lantern [2020] / 6 Jul 2015

Green Lantern: More Rumors Claim Chris Pine Up for Hal Jordan Role

More fuel for the fire.

By Alex Osborn

While recent reports suggest Chris Pine will play Steve Trevor in the Wonder Woman movie, the rumor mill claims the Star Trek star is actually up for the role of Hal Jordan in Warner Bros' Green Lantern reboot.

"This weekend I talked to someone close to Chris Pine who confirmed that the actor is in fact up for Hal Jordan. And that he had been offered Steve Trevor," Birth Movies Death reports.

According to the outlet's source, Pine hadn't signed on to anything as of last week, though Warners wants him on stage at their San Diego Comic-Con panel this Saturday.

This isn't the first time we've heard rumors suggesting Pine is up for the role of Hal Jordan; a similar report popped up just a couple months ago. Perhaps we'll get an official announcement from Warner Bros. this weekend at Comic-Con.

Green Lantern Reboot Officially Titled Green Lantern Corps.

SuperHeroHype

Jul 11, 2015

Straight from the Warner Bros. Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con comes the news that the upcoming “Green Lantern” reboot will be officially titled Green Lantern Corps. It’s unclear who will be the primary protagonist or protagonists of the film, but between Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner, plus thousands of alien Lanterns, the possibilities are endless.

It’s unclear which of these Lanterns could appear in earlier DC Comics films, as there’s always a change they might show up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but one of them will no doubt appear in Justice League: Part One, set for release November 17, 2017, and Justice League: Part Two, set for release June 14, 2019. Green Lantern Corps is currently slated for a June 19, 2020 release date, which is still subject to change.

This could also open the door for one of them who has been hinted at to appear on TV.

A Ferris Air hanger was used in an episode, I want to say Arrow, and somebody said one of their pilots had disappeared earlier that year.

Oh, right. I believe they said the flasharrowverse was seperate from the movies, though.

I hope that means we get a Hal Jordan that isn't the same actor from the movie.
