How About Ricky Whittle As Green Lantern John Stewart?

How About Ricky Whittle As Green Lantern John Stewart?

With Green Lantern getting rebooted for the DCEU, it’s been said to be a buddy cop movie starring Hal Jordan and John Stewart.

We actually got a Green Lantern tease in the Justice League movie, so we see plans seem to be moving forward.

So who should play Green Lantern?

A new name surfaces from a writer on the 2011 Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern flick, as Michael Green (also known for Logan) recommends Ricky Whittle (who stars in American Gods written by Green):

 I’ll probably get angry texts if I don’t say what’s in my heart which is that Ricky Whittle would make a fantastic John Stewart.

Michael Green even offers that the writers on Green Lantern had lots of ideas for further movies (note: the writers on the Green Lantern movie aren’t to blame for its failure):

I will say that my partners on Green Lantern, Gregg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, spent a lot of time talking about all the potential for subsequent Green Lantern films, and I still love every idea that we discussed. I don’t think they will ever come to fruition, not as we imagined them I don’t think. If there’s a Green Lantern Corps to be done it will be all new fresh thinking.

Green Lantern Corps has been said to be in the works for a 2020 release written by David S. Goyer.
