DC and Warner Bros. have their eyes on a few people, maybe, to rekindle that light. That green light. The buzz right now is that the DC Cinematic Universe is circling the wagons for the new Green Lantern film. Fast and Furious star Tyrese Gibson recently talked with Entertainment Tonight and almost/but not quite/but kind of practically said that he’s being talked to about a role as Green Lantern!
On the casting rumors:
There are certain things I can’t speak on,” Tyrese said, cautiously. “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,” he added. “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…
…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. – ETonline
And if that wasn’t enough, the always charismatic Tyrese Gibson took to Instagram and posted these fan created images:
Shit just got real – #doubleoath #doubletrouble #GreenLantern #WB #VoltronPictures

For those of you that don’t know, there are/were multiple Green Lanterns in the comic book. Several days ago Collider reported on a rumor that a place for Star Trek’s Chris Pine was being looked into for the Wonder Woman film. A tidbit I find interesting is that Latino Review stated his thoughts on the Chris Pine issue is that the Wonder Woman role may just be smoke and mirrors to throw everyone off the scent that Pine will be Hal Jordan Green Lantern. Couple that idea along with Gibson could be playing the John Stewart Green Lantern and DC and Warner Bros. could have one hell of a movie on their hands!
Now with the infamous San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, and the given fact that DC and WB will make huge announcements there, it’s only a matter of time until we see Tyrese Gibson and Chris Pine stroll across the Hall H stage.
Or will we?
