Apparently Tyrese Gibson was attached to the role of John Stewart, Green Lantern, when the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern movie was in production. We have to be honest, this is the first we heard of it…
Now, however, Gibson himself has shared a piece of fan art on his instagram page (below) and it’s started up a new internet meltdown that Gibson has just said he’s in the Justice League movie as Stewart.
We don’t think this is the case; that said, we like The Fast & Furious star and we’re certainly not be totally against him in the role, but he isn’t how we’d imagine Stewart.
He wrote “Rumour has it” with the art.
We’ll have to wait and see, but we reckon this is more a case of him throwing his hat in the ring…
The Justice League movie lands in 2017 – but so far there’s no plans for Lantern to be in it. That we know of.
UPDATE: It looks like Gibson is having fun sharing fan art and either he knows something we don’t or he’s just pushing for the role. Check out his Instagram page for more.
