While we wait for more news regarding the Green Lantern Corps film, here’s an awesome image of Idris Elba becoming John Stewart for the DCEU
After the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern fiasco, DC knew they had to do justice to the character and the franchise as a whole. That’s why last year we learned that none other than Geoff Johns was taking the creative helm of the new Green Lantern Corps project. It seems that he’s the only one fit for the job after he wrote several Green Lantern stories for DC. Perhaps Green Lantern: Rebirth, Green Lantern: No Fear and Green Lantern Corps: Recharge are some of his best.
Nevertheless, the Green Lantern Corps film is nowhere near. Without a finished script and a director, the film is still pretty much in its earliest stages. However, fans have been craving a Green Lantern reboot since the Ryan Reynolds film. Several actors have been fan cast to play the other and maybe not so famous Green Lantern, John Stewart. This time around we get an amazing image which shows us how actor Idris Elba might look as the powerful Green Lantern. Check it out:
The long-in-development Green Lantern Corps is rumored to be a buddy-cop movie with an older, experienced Hal Jordan training the young recruit John Stewart in the ways of the Green Lantern Corps. Idris Elba is just one of many actors to have thrown his hat in the ring to play the character which also includes Ricky Whittle, Common, Trevante Rhodes, Sterling K. Brown and of course Tyrese Gibson. Idris Elba is certainly as skilled as any of these actors and since the film won’t be in theaters in quite a while, we’ll have to keep on dreaming on who might become John Stewart on the silver screen.
