With Ryan Reynolds moving away from playing the role of Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) to play the role he was destined to play (Deadpool) it leaves a question mark as to if or when there will be another Green Lantern in the near future. With DC all but denying a Justice League Movie coming in 2017 and a Green Lantern movie slated for 2020, there has to be an appearance from the power ring Superhero but the question is which Green Lantern will it be? Will they continue the story of Hal Jordan or go in another direction and focus on John Stewart (The Black Green Lantern).
Actor Tyrese has been lobbying hard to get the role if Warner Bros. elect to chose the latter of the two but he has some competition for the role. Common and Edris Elba are names also mentioned for the potential role. Hopefully, Warner Bros pulls the trigger on John Stewart in the upcoming Justice League movie to add some diversity in the super hero movie scene seeing that there aren’t many if any African-American Superheroes to watch these days, and with Marvel already adding Black Panther in the mix in the upcoming Captain American Civil War movie DC would be silly not to push for it. The 2011 Green Lantern movie was a box-office dud and this gives Warner Bros the perfect opportunity to go in another direction with the character. Let’s just wait and see how this one plays out.
