Tyrese Gibson "Committed" To Playing Green Lantern

Yesterday saw Tyrese Gibson post an image of himself as John Stewart Green Lantern that a fan created, which went viral.

Now Gibson has posted a second fan-created image and stated he again wants to play Green Lantern.

"I am fully committed to suiting up for this adventure," Gibson posted on his Instagram as well as including the Green Lantern oath. "In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!!!"

Warner Bros. did announce a new Green Lantern movie, but not for another five years, to be released in 2020.

It's thought we'll get to see a new Green Lantern in either Justice League Part 1 (2017) or Part 2 (2020). Maybe Zack Snyder will even include a Justice League Easter Egg in Batman Vs. Superman?

The inclusion of Green Lantern brings up the question of where was the Green Lantern Corps when the Kryptonians, led by General Zod, attacked Earth? If Batman has already been around, is it safe to assume Earth has been protected by the Green Lantern Corps for some time? It will be interesting to see how/if Zack Snyder explains it.
