It is quite possible that the most exciting thing the DCEU fans have to look forward to is the announced Green Lantern Corps movie. Honestly, it may be the best thing after I am sure we all will take a huge dump on Justice League, The Flash, The Batman, Cyborg (unlikely it will ever happen) and gees what else is there? Oh Ya, Wonder Woman — and this may be the exception, as we learned that Ares will be the villain, and I think that alone may make this film decent’ish. Ok, I get it, I am being a fanboy here, but I still have high hopes for 2020+ as David Goyer is co-writing GLC with Geoff Johns behind the wheel, and already one notable actor is clamoring for the John Stewart role.
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’s actor Sterling K. Brown, who played Christopher Darden in the show has eagerly raised his hand, and on a twitter post he lobbies for the role.
Brown was actually on my top 10 list of actors to play Stewart, which I have revised a bit after our readers here wanted an older, more book-accurate, version of Stewart. I still think they should make him younger than Hal Jordan (the most well known Green Lantern) and center the movie around Stewart.
In addition, one less-than-notable director, Duncan Jones, has decided to slam the lore already with a back-handed comment, while still eluding to the fact that if he was wanted he would be ok with the position. Good luck with that, Tom Hardy won’t even give a direct comment about playing James Bond for fear he could lose out on the role. Jones of (looks to imdb) Warcraft (lmao) digs himself a hole with these comments.
Jones has no directorial spot in GLC, and likely never will, especially when he followed up with a comment about Green Lantern himself:
“I think he’s dumb.”
Anyways, and I must be careful saying this as the last time I did an actress we all love had passed within an hour, but today is kind of a slow news day so far. Hopefully, I will have time to work on my extended GLC character-want list. I have given away a few already, and as a teaser, who would best play Kilowog? He would have to have a unique voice that could not be associated to a particular region. Perhaps someone from New Zealand?
Do you think Brown would make a good Stewart? Who is your pick for Jordan? Am I the only person that thinks Jones should retire his twitter?
