A couple of weeks ago saw actor/rapper Common state he wouldn't mind playing Green Lantern, and in a new interview says more of the same.
"I would love to, Iâ€™ll say that. That would be a blessing," Common told Yahoo Movies. "That would be incredible to get the opportunity. But thatâ€™s up to the studio and DC and those guys to see who they feel is the right person. But it would be an incredible honor and I would beÂ geekedÂ for that character and that role. I would go to the highest with that role."
Though Common did have a role in Suicide Squad, it was pretty small, so if they did cast Common as Green Lantern John Stewart I wouldn't think it would be that big of a deal.
Here's what Common had to say previously about GL:
"No, I haven't spoken to DC. John Stewart, the character, is amazing. When I had the opportunity of potentially being John Stewart, when we were working, I learned how he was part of the Green Lantern Corps and all that he was doing. He was kind of community-driven so I felt like, 'Oh, man, I love this character.' Â He used his mind to do a lot of things, so I connected with him. I just love the character, but I don't know, I haven't talked to DC about it but, you know, hey! Yeah, I would love [to]. That would be an honor to play John Stewart."Â
WB currently has the Green Lanten Corps movie in development said to be a buddy cop film with Hal Jordan and John Stewart set for a possible 2020 release date.
