Tyrese meets with Warner Brothers about Green Lantern

We reported earlier this week that Furious 7 star Tyrese Gibson was very interested in taking the role of John Stewart in the ever growing DC Movie Universe. Even our own Robert Galvan wrote a lengthy article on why Tyrese would be perfect for the role. It appears that Warner Brothers got the message, because yesterday Tyrese posted an instagram photo of him heading towards the gates of Warner Brothers studios.

“I don’t talk….. I move…#WB #GreenLanternMission.” – Tyrese

There’s a good chance that Tyrese’s campaign to play the Green Lantern may have landed him an audition, much like how Donald Glover pinned for a shot to play Spider-Man.

Here’s an interesting note: Tyrese was originally one of the actors in the running for the part in Justice League: Mortal back in 2007. It was Warner Brothers’ first attempt at a Justice League movie. The role eventually went to Common, but after the Writers Strike, the film was put on hold, and after numerous setback the project was cancelled.
