Arrow star Michael Jai White revealed that he wants to play John Stewart’s Green Lantern in an upcoming project.
Michael Jai White is no stranger to comic book properties having starred in Spawn, The Dark Knight, and Arrow. With a Green Lantern movie and HBO show in the works, it seems inevitable that we will finally get the first-ever live-action John Stewart at some point in the future. Arrow‘s series finale teased that John Diggle becomes a Green Lantern, but there’s no telling if we will see that continue in the future. It’s also unclear if the Green Lantern series will be connected to the Arrowverse at all. With all the possibilities for a John Stewart Green Lantern to show up in the future, many people have even envisioned White in the role.
On Geek House Show’s Instagram page, Michael Jai White was asked by fans what character DC or Marvel character he would like to play. Because of all the fan-casting with him as Green Lantern over the years, the actor revealed it’s John Stewart:
“So, I was asked what character would I like to play from the Marvel or DC universe. That answer would have to be from the DC universe…a character named John Stewart because that’s what everyone wants me to play.”
