Rather than hide from the movie’s failure, the star has cheekily embraced its status as a superhero also-ran.

Common is a Grammy-winning rapper, an Oscar-winning soundtrack contributor, and an increasingly prolific actor. Turns out they were all just warm-ups for John Wick: Chapter 2, the new hit sequel that pits Common against Keanu Reeves’s titular dog avenger in the most intensive action the rapper has faced. Common told Yahoo Movies about entering the hyper-violent realm of John Wick, how close he came to playing Green Lantern in George Miller’s ill-fated Justice League movie, and more.
“I saw the reporting too,” Hammer told TheWrap during an interview in Park City, Utah. As TheWrap previously reported, Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hammer are on the shortlist for the lead “Green Lantern” role, according to multiple people with knowledge of the project who exclusively spoke with TheWrap.
This claim comes from The Wrap, who simply state that “a member of the Green Lanterns Corps. This line-up has counted several humans over the years, including Hal Jordan (as portrayed by Reynolds), John Stewart and Guy Gardner. It is anticipated that more than one of these characters will appear in ‘Green Lanterns Corps,’ due from Warner Bros in 2020.
In an interview on Any Time with Vin Forte, scriptwriter Nicole Perlman explained why ‘Captain Marvel’ is getting a big change to her big screen origin story. “If you were just going to do a straight adaptation of the comics, her origin story is very similar to Green Lantern. The comic book origins feature an alien with amazing superhuman abilities travelling to Earth and bestowing those abilities upon the human, Carol Danvers.
Actor Tyrese Gibson has set the record straight (more or less) on rumours linking him to the role of Green Lantern - and confirms he is indeed a contender. “P***ed the people off, a little bit, at Warner Brothers because they thought that I had convinced the world that I had landed the role, which I didn’t. Gibson goes on to say that, while he has not met ‘Batman V Superman’ and ‘Justice League’ director Zack Snyder, he has had a meeting with Warner Bros - and in reply to Larry King’s query, “you have a shot?”, the actor replies, “I do.
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg make a magnificent seven. With that in mind, director Zack Snyder says his upcoming Justice League team-up will pay homage to one of cinema’s all-time classics: Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai. Snyder’s Justice League, the sequel to his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for November 2017, will be structured in similar fashion.
Anyone who’s been paying attention to how things are shaping up casting-wise in the developing DC cinematic universe may have noticed the lack of anything solid regarding one key Justice League member: Green Lantern. It’s long been common knowledge that Henry Cavill is Superman, Ben Affleck is Batman, Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher is Cyborg, Jason Momoa is Aquaman, and Ezra Miller is The Flash. All these actors will appear (in varying capacities) in the upcoming ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ and are set to start work on the the first of two ‘Justice League’ movies in April.
Quizzed about the movie again by US TV show Watch What Happens Live, Reynolds reiterated his feelings on the matter by rating the misconceived Warner Bros/DC movie a 1 out of 10. Pondering the matter, Reynolds told host Andy Cohen, “I would give it a scant, four, maybe. Again, this is hardly the first time (and we doubt it will be the last) that Reynolds has spoken derisively of the Martin Campbell-directed movie in which he donned a CGI suit (openly mocked in ‘Deadpool’) to protect Earth from hostile aliens.
There’s not long to wait until the hugely anticipated ‘Deadpool’ hits cinemas, and its star Ryan Reynolds has been very forthcoming with his love for the character, saying he wants to play him forever. Well, Ryan, forever is a long time. Just ask Chris Evans, aka Marvel’s Captain America, what he thinks about playing the same character for so long.
It was already known from the title alone that this new take on the cosmic superhero brand would be a team-up movie, as opposed to the more conventional solo approach taken on the infamous 2011 misfire with Ryan Reynolds. While there are no direct quotes from the studio, it seems fair to assume this means it will be a black guy-white guy buddy movie in the vein of the much-loved action series which starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as mismatched cops. The logical assumption, then, is that ‘Green Lantern Corps’ will centre on the two most popular Green Lanterns, Hal Jordan and John Stewart, fighting intergalactic evil side by side, potentially with Stewart complaining about being too old for it (okay, maybe not the last part).
Tyrese Gibson could be up for the role of Green Lantern after all… as he confirms he’s already been in talks to appear in DC’s ‘Green Lantern Corps’. It’s no secret that Tyrese Gibson really wants a part in the upcoming Green Lantern movie. During an interview with Collider, the 36-year-old actor revealed that he’s already met with Warner Bros. about a potential role in ‘Green Lantern Corps’.
While bona fide new movie announcements have been disappointingly thin on the ground from this year’s San Diego Comic Con so far, Saturday did see one relatively quiet reveal about an upcoming superhero movie. In other words, it would appear this movie will centre not on a single Green Lantern as in the much-maligned 2011 film with Ryan Reynolds, but on a whole team of them. For the benefit of those unfamiliar with the comic book property, the title of ‘Green Lantern’ refers not just to one lone superhero, but thousands from across the universe, chosen for being among the best and bravest of their worlds, representing their planet in a sort of super-powered intergalactic police force.
