Now let's just point out the obvious, if you're a fan of comic books, then you're well aware that Tyrese Gibson has been campaigning to be Green Lantern since Warner Bros/DC released that they are planning to reboot Green Lantern in 2020. If you were unaware of this, then good news! There's going to be a new Green Lantern movie in 2020!
Since DC's announcement, the internet has been flooded with very impressive fan art depicting several different actors as one of the most famous superheroes in comic book history. However, the most popular choice from fans across the globe has definitely got to be Tyrese Gibson.
As I stated earlier, ever since DC released their lineup of movies, Gibson has been campaigning to be one of our favorite heroes, posting and sharing fan art of him as Green Lantern. I mean, why not? Gibson has the look, the muscles, the fan base and based on his past films, the skills and experience to be our perfect Lantern.
On Wednesday (6/24), a rumor came out reporting that actor Chris Pine was going to play Hal Jordan in the film, however, multiple sources have claimed that there will be more than one Green Lantern from Earth. The same day that this rumor came out, Gibson posted the following picture to his Instagram account depicting himself, and Chris Pine as Green Lantern.
Earlier today, another photo was posted by Gibson, again depicting himself and Pine as the hero with the caption, "The oath has been taken."
Gibson recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight and had the following to say about taking up the role, "There are certain things I can't speak on, but I will say, however this works out, it's definitely the fans' fault. I was at home minding my own business and fans start creating these fan-made videos of me as Green Lantern and I looked into it. I've been a fan of the Green Lantern. I took the oath, and I had a meeting at Warner Bros. and certain things were said and talked about. We'll just see what happens."
Hopefully the fans have done enough to help Gibson in his attempts to portray Green Lantern. "I just think I deserve a shot at suiting up and becoming the Green Lantern."
