Tyrese Gibson is still interesting in playing Green Lantern is Warner Bros. allows him the opportunity to do so.
For quite some time, Tyrese Gibson has proclaimed himself as the worthy recipient of the Green Lantern role. However, there hasn’t been much of an opportunity for Tyrese Gibson to take on the role considering Warner Bros. hasn’t formally announced a Green Lantern solo film, as there hasn’t been any update on Green Lantern Corps. The folks behind the DCEU (and Warner Bros.) as a whole are currently taking on more riskier, stand-alone projects that don’t particularly align with a shared universe. In addition to the Green Lantern film, Warner Bros. has greenlit a Green Lantern inspired television series backed by Greg Berlanti for HBO Max.
Despite all the variables stacked against him, Tyrese Gibson is still adamant on playing Green Lantern if Warner Bros. affords him the opportunity. Speaking with Comicbook.com at the F9 concert, Tyrese Gibson was asked if there was any update on him playing Green Lantern. Tyrese Gibson responded by saying that he’s waiting on the phone call from Warner Bros. but he also has Morbius to look forward to.
“I don’t have any updates. I just hope they call me. I hope they call me. It’s a role I’m very passionate about doing, but right now, the focus is this Morbius film. It’s the Spider-Man spinoff franchise, Morbius, Venom, Marvel, and I’m just excited to be able to be a part of this franchise. I love the Fast & the Furious, but I’ve been wanting to be a part of another franchise. Because the last time I was in a franchise was Transformers, which is not too shabby.”
Tyrese Gibson seems to have a lot stacked on his plate, but getting the call from Warner Bros. to play Green Lantern seems to be the cherry on the top. For years, Tyrese Gibson has been painting himself as the perfect Green Lantern for Warner Bros. and the DCEU. Fans have been patiently waiting for Warner Bros. to release a John Stewart based film or television show, and while there are two Green Lantern projects in development, there’s no word if Tyrese Gibson will get the opportunity to fulfill his dream.
