Is Tyrese taking over as Green Lantern?

Screenshot_2015-01-23-16-53-41-1Tyrese has posted an interested piece of fan art on his Instagram hinting that he might be the next Green Lantern. The image was accompanied by the subtext “Rumor has it that.” With the poorly-received Green Lantern movie back in 2011, people have wondered what DC was going to do with Green Lantern, since he is a big part of the Justice League. With the upcoming film The Justice League, no one has been certain what was going to happen with this key member.

In the Green Lantern Corps, there have been a few majors. Hal Jordan is the most recognized, but John Stewart has long been a fan favorite and was used in the popular animated series, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. Another issue has been related to the low amount of minority characters in large scale superhero films, luckily shows and films like The Flash and Fantastic Four (reboot) have recast key characters into people who are of color. We know that Cyborg is supposed to be in the film, who will be played by Ray Fisher, but a second person of color would make it very competitive to the Marvel films.

Tyrese has been in many movies where he has military roles (Annapolis & Transformers), and John Stewart was a Marine. Tyrese is also ripped, similar to the large build that we have seen in different renditions of John Stewart, and he seems to be the right age for this character. Could he also possibly have a cameo in the Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice film? I guess we will have to wait and see.
