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. Ricky Whittle is just one of many actors to have thrown his hat in the ring to play the character which also includes Common, Trevante Rhodes, Sterling K. Brown and of course Tyrese Gibson.
If selected, Ricky Whittle will be a part of a more modern DCEU which may include Robert Pattinson’s Batman and some already known actors like Gal Gadot and her Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa with his Aquaman.
