Green Lantern Corps is one of the films slated to arrive in the DCEU in the coming years. The Fast and the Furious star Tyrese Gibson has long been interested in portraying the role of John Stewart in the film. Gibson recently shed some light on that potentially happening in an interview with Syfy Wire.
I would love to do it. You know, I had a couple meetings at Warner about it. I just think that they’re still trying to figure out what the move is. I would love to officially confirm, but I can’t. And if they go in a different direction, I think they know what’s best for the movie, but the fans started this campaign, and all I’ve done is made use of my social media to let folks know I’m interested.
Earlier this month, casting detail rumors stated that Warner Bros. was looking for an actor between 21-30 years old to play Stewart. Gibson is 38 years old and this of course could hurt his chances at the role. Perhaps we will get an update on the status of the cast and release date of the upcoming Green Lantern Corps film next week at San Diego Comic-Con.
