How about Dwayne Johnson as Green Lantern John Stewart?

The Rock gave everyone a surprise New Year's Eve gift by mentioning he had talks with the WB CEO about a DC Comics movie.

Johnson was at one time attached to a Lobo movie with DC, which reportedly fell apart prior to new WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara coming on board.

Now a Twitter user states it's floating around that Dwayne Johnson is a contender for Green Lantern John Stewart.

This actually isn't the first time a rumor surrounding John Stewart has hit the net as most recently it was said 59-year-old Denzel Washington was being eyed for the role.

As we previously mentioned, it looks as if WB might be going with John Stewart as their choice of GL after the failure that was the 2011 Green Lantern movie. Having John Stewart would also add in some diversity.

Stewart wasn't a contender on our own list for characters that Dwayne Johnson could be up for as we considered The Rock more than likely to be cast in a physical role. Still, The Rock throwing around some bad guys through use of GL constructs could be pretty cool.
