On Wednesday, a new rumor claimed that Star Trek star Chris Pine is actually Hal Jordan and not Steve Trevor in the DC Cinematic Universe. Plus, multiple sites are claiming that there will be more than one Earth-bound Green Lantern in the DCCU. With the strong assumption being John Stewart is one of them.
Now as you know, Furious 7 actor Tyrese Gibson has been lobbying for the role of John Stewart for months. On Wednesday, he teased his followers with another Green Lantern image, but this one had him paired up with Chris Pine. Woah!
"There are certain things I can't speak on," Tyrese replied when asked by Entertainment Tonight if that Instagram image was confirmation he's John Stewart. "But I will say, however this works out, it's definitely the fans' fault. I was at home minding my own business and fans start creating these fan-made videos of me as Green Lantern and I looked into it. I've been a fan of the Green Lantern. I took the oath, and I had a meeting at Warner Bros. and certain things were said and talked about. We'll just see what happens."
Warner Bros. is expected to unveil their full Justice League lineup at San Diego Comic-Con this year, which could include not one, but two, Green Lanterns. So, will Tyrese be at Comic-Con? "You never know," Tyrese teased. "I might be there on the other side of an announcement. You never know."
"I just think I deserve a shot at suiting up and becoming the Green Lantern," Tyrese said. He made sure to point out that he has a large fanbase domestically and more importantly, internationally. He's also in great shape and made sure to point out that his many muscles are "ready to be used" if called upon.
