Tyrese seems to be reveling in the success of his latest and final album. Have y’all listened to it, what’d you think? Meanwhile, the dude finally confirmed that he has met with Warner Bros. to discuss the Green Lantern role. Though, nothing seems to have been made official on that.
“Well I was innocent from the beginning,” said Tyrese Gibson before recalling how his interest in Green Lantern began. “I was at home eating a bowl of Lucky Charms in my drawers, my ugly feet were out, and I got about six direct messages on Instagram with photos of me as the Green Lantern. This particular fan who did this fan art said that there was a community of people that had been talking for like a month and a half about who they think would be the best Green Lantern and they all picked me. I said to them, ‘I took the oath, and I am going to commit myself to this process of seeing what’s possible.’” He continued, “I’ve already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we’ll see what happens. 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.”
