Tyrese Gibson Has Met With Warner Bros. About Being In ‘Green Lantern Corps’

Green Lantern Corps

There is still no real concrete news about the Green Lantern Corps movie, but Tyrese Gibson recently spoke with Syfy Wire and mentioned that he’s “had a couple of meetings” with Warner Bros. about being in the film.

“Yeah, I would love to do it. Ya know I had a couple of meetings at Warner about it. I just think that they’re still trying to figure out what the move is. I would love to officially confirm but I can’t, and if they go in a different direction, I think they know what’s best for the movie, but the fans started this campaign and all I’ve done is made use of my social media to let folks know that I’m interested.”

Presumably, Gibson would be playing the John Stewart version of Green Lantern in the film. The Fate of the Furious actor has been vocal about possibly being in the film and has used his celebrity status on social media to make his interest known to the important people responsible for casting. Gibson isn’t betting on getting the role, but he sounds hopeful. Whatever happens, he tried.

Green Lantern Corps is currently set to come out on July 24, 2020. David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel) and Justin Rhodes (Contract Killers) wrote the screenplay, based on a story treatment by Goyer and DC Films co-head Geoff Johns.

Every DC Comics Film, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 34

DC Comics MoviesThe film legacy of DC Comics should never be understated, even as the maturing superhero genre continues to follow more diverse paths of success through comic book characters beyond DC’s iconic catalogue.

But not all DC movies are created equal, and there’s merit to reflecting on how these films measure up against one another as the DC Extended Universe approaches its fifth movie in the form of Justice League (and the crowd said, finally). This list attempts to do just that by holding every live-action DC movie released in theaters to a consistent set of worthwhile standards, including the quality of the film itself, the onscreen performances, cultural relevance (both within and outside of box office considerations), overall impact, contributions to the genre at large, and originality.

Put more simply, a movie on this list won’t trump another on ticket sales, alone (or at all). But perhaps you’ll find an experimental DC film getting the leg up over another that is slightly more formulaic and unremarkable, despite being remembered fondly.

For obvious reasons, it’s perfectly alright to disagree with this list, but keep in mind that expecting it to coincide with your personal opinions and observations will only leave you disappointed. That said, be sure to offer your own arguments and lists in the comments for others to weigh their opinions against, because…well, why not?

Let’s start with the worst of the DC films (not an easy task). Hit Next to continue.

    Would hate this. He can’t act. Also this character is a former Marine, a serious tough guy…Gibson doesn’t come to mind when I think of that. My fancast is currently: Idris Elba, Common or Nate Parker.

    • Kax

      EXACTLY!!!! He cannot act worth a damn.

    • Marquis de Sade

      I suggest you look at the film he and James Franco co-starred, called ANNAPOLIS…Trust, Tyreese can play MILITARY.

      • Nathan_12thMan

        I’ve seen it, he didn’t show much (if any) range and yeah, he was decent as someone in the Military in a small boxing movie, but in a gigantic DC blockbuster? No.

  • Monty

    How can they even be considering anyone other than Sterling K Brown? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1250791/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t53

    • Maxi Iroh

      They want a young John Stewart.

      • Monty

        He and Tyrese are only 2 years apart. Google is free.

  • Ruben C Barron

    If they cast him as John Stewart, I will Not watch the movie. This guy has been pushing his own campaign for years and acts like it’s all the fans.
