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.
