WATCH: Zack Snyder had actually filmed his Jon Stewart Green Lantern scene and reveals who played him

April 20th, 2021 by Marc Comments

So, last week we reported that Zack Snyder had an actor in mind to play John Stewart’s Green Lantern in his Justice League movie but sadly, he wasn’t allowed to use the character (here).

Then, last night, it was revealed that both Stewart and Kilowog were set to appear in the movie’s final scene but were replaced with the Martian Manhunter (here).

Now, it seems we were right about one of these and half right about the other.

We reported that Snyder’s reported choice for Stewart was Moonlight and Birdbox star Trevante Rhodes, but now Snyder himself has confirmed that Who’s Afraid of the Big Black Wolf star Wayne T Carr was the man for gig.

We were right about the Kilowog part.

So, at JusticeCon 2021 over the weekend, Snyder revealed that not only was Carr his choice but they actually filmed the scene!

“He’s an amazing actor, an amazingly kind gentleman,” Snyder said at the panel.

“I said, ‘Look, there’s a chance that this doesn’t make it in the movie.’ I’m not 100% sure he thought it was real, legit.”

This supports what Snyder said last month on the ReelBlend podcast: “We did have a Green Lantern scene in the movie that the studio asked me to take out that I did also shoot here in the driveway with an amazing actor who was going to play John Stewart.” 

You can hear all the Snyder panel below and it’s nice to know that he had even bigger plans for the movie… it’s just a pity we’ll probably never get to see Carr in the role.

Cough – deleted scenes release – cough!

Let me hear all your thoughts, folks.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
