Tyrese talks on how the ball got rolling with him and the role of Green Lantern aka John Stewart…
“Well I was innocent from the beginning. I was at home eating a bowl of Lucky Charms in my drawers, my ugly feet were out, and I got about six direct messages on Instagram with photos of me as the Green Lantern. This particular fan who did this fan art said that there was a community of people that had been talking for like a month and a half about who they think would be the best Green Lantern and they all picked me. I said to them, ‘I took the oath, and I am going to commit myself to this process of seeing what’s possible.”
It looks as if Tyrese has met with Warner Bros. as far as “talks” about landing this role.
“I’ve already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we’ll see what happens. I do believe that there needs to be more black superheroes out there, but that’s not even my motivation. I think I would be the best Green Lantern and based on my fans and supporters that spent around $6 billion in box office receipts, I feel like there’s a fanbase of fans out there waiting to see me put on this green suit and do my thing. So I would love to confirm something today but I can’t. We’ll just keep following up.”
To me, I think he’s looking to lead another franchise, being that Transformers is somewhat in the past for him. He does have the Fast & The Furious series, but there’s no telling how long that could potentially last, even though it’s been stated that Furious 7 started the next trilogy. What do you think of Tyrese playing ONE of the Green Lantern characters in the potential Green Lantern Corps movie???
