Tyrese Gibson has had a quiet week, but one that’s full of good surprises. First his latest album and first #1 Black Rose sold 74,000 units in its first week according to Billboard, and now he might be on his way to yet another multimillion dollar movie franchise.
During an interview with Collider, Gibson confirmed that a massive outcry of fan support is the reason he’s in talks with Warner Bros. for the role of Green Lantern John Stewart in the upcoming Green Lantern Corps. movie. “I’ve already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we’ll see what happens,” Gibson said. “I do believe that there needs to be more black superheroes out there, but that’s not even my motivation. I think I would be the best Green Lantern and based on my fans and supporters that spent around $6 billion in box office receipts, I feel like there’s a fanbase of fans out there waiting to see me put on this green suit and do my thing. So I would love to confirm something today but I can’t. We’ll just keep following up.”
Is Tyrese your first choice to don the ring and take the oath?
