Before we get started, I've been chatting with LEVITIKUZ who recently contacted me on the SHH forums and wanting to give me all this information. It is no way confirmed but I believe him and that he was onto something. He's the one who all came up with this and it's very interesting indeed. He wanted me personally to share all this information with you guys. I thought I should give him a shout out and he said he all misses y'all. ;)

Now let's begin.It's important to note that this hasn't been officially confirmed by WB at all but at the same time, the Rock saying he is involved in DC film and would love to play John Stewart are true since they have come from the man himself. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been connected to DC films in the past. He at one time was set to play Lobo but the film didn't happen as we all know.Now it was recently announced by the man himself that the Rock is working on a DC film. A month ago, the Rock tweeted this:


The Rock posted this on his Instagram account 3 months ago



And there is the photo and what he typed:
Known this beast since he was 15. I was on the football field playing for Miami, he was leading the Hurricanes marching band as Drum Major. He spent years of working on my WWE story lines & Rock monologues. Then years of being on every movie set with me learning the film business from top to bottom. Today, he's one of the best and most sought after producers in Hollywood. Brilliant, relentless and one big motherf*cker! Proud of you brother & thank you for all the hard work.#ProducerHiram #TeamRock#JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss

Now what's interesting about all this is the hashtag which says Team Rock John Stewart Can Still Whup Supermans Ass. What could this mean? A while ago it was speaculated that he was to portray John Stewart given when writer Peter Georgiu of ThinkMcFlyThink tweeted this:



So where does that leave us? Did Dwayne meet with WB for the role of John Stewart? It's very likely given all the hints that the Rock himself has given but perharps it's a misdirection .Again this is not saying "yes it's been confirmed by WB that The Rock will play Green Lantern". It's just saying that there is a lot of arrows pointing at that direction in which the Rock will play John Stewart in a Justice League movie and maybe a Green Lantern movie. The Rock is a Box Office draw and this would make sense for WB to cast himas John Stewart. He's big enough to carry his own franchise. What do you guys think? Leave your thoughts down below. Also I've provided a link to LEVITIKUZ's original article which has more detailed information of the hints and give aways. Check it out guys.

Yeah, I remember seeing that hashtag. He's instagram is freaking hilarious.
Smarfi - 2/1/2014, 11:54 AM
I think this would be a smart move by WB. They could do ALOT worse.
MrCBM56 - 2/1/2014, 11:55 AM
I like the casting.
LehnsienJaw - 2/1/2014, 11:57 AM
COME BACK LEVI

and this would be great casting!
Insomnia - 2/1/2014, 11:59 AM
>.< Well if he is John i would be okay with is as a choice of casting. But Hal before John is a must
GeneralZod1138 - 2/1/2014, 12:00 PM
He'd make a fine Stewart, but Superman could literally mop the floor him.
charlie2094 - 2/1/2014, 12:00 PM
Like the casting, but hate John Stewart, kills a potential Lantern franchise before it every really begins...

Yes to the Rock as John Stewart, but please have Hal Jordan first, especially in Justice League. Hal's personality and origin would add much more to the group dynamic
themidnightking - 2/1/2014, 12:02 PM
Cool, even though if DC just now decided to attach the Arrowverse to the DCCU, Grant Gustin would have to O.D. on steroids to keep up with Amell, The Rock, Affleck, and Cavill
SuperCat - 2/1/2014, 12:05 PM
Hate the idea of him as Stewart. Too damn big! Bring back Levi!
MrReese - 2/1/2014, 12:05 PM
Make it happen!!
GeneralZod1138 - 2/1/2014, 12:07 PM
WB will probably go with John over Hal for JL.

We all know how Green Lantern turned out, so they may want to move away from one character and hope the audience can connect with a different character, while still using the GL franchise.
Nick56 - 2/1/2014, 12:07 PM
Hal had his chance, bring on Stewart! If he is Stewart I'm guessing cameo of some sort in BvS before a JL movie. Or maybe he is playing Darkseid or Doomsday because I could see those as well
cipher - 2/1/2014, 12:12 PM
Hahaha, Levi and I always had some good back an' forth goin'. Banter, banter, banter.

Hope you're doin' well, mate.
cipher - 2/1/2014, 12:13 PM
McNya- Good work, by the way.
JoeMomma29 - 2/1/2014, 12:14 PM
I would take Levi over Trudy any day, at least Levi is not some racist/homophobic turd.......
charlie2094 - 2/1/2014, 12:15 PM
Heck, I'd honestly even rather they had the Rock play Jordan. Stewart cannot hold a Lantern franchise, need Hals personality (which would also work great with the League), his relationship with Sinestro is a big part of what's made it what it is today...he introduces us to the other Corps etc

Need Hal as much as you need Bruce Wayne. I know Warners probably doesn't care much about that, and just about distancing itself from GL, but Hal is needed for the League and to headline a solo franchise
cdpacheco89 - 2/1/2014, 12:16 PM
I would like to see him pull it off. Jon Stewart is a very different character than he's played before.
Firgosaurus - 2/1/2014, 12:17 PM
Well Johnny is the Earth based Lantern. It makes sense he's the one that should apprehend that idiot Clark Kent for flattening Metropolis.

Hal and Kyle are your space bozos. John is the one doing most of the work on Earth.
TheGoddamnPeel - 2/1/2014, 12:17 PM
Levi was annoying on the arkhamverse forums, he was annoying here, and he's annoying on IGN.

Still, I like the idea of the Rock as Green Lantern.
Firgosaurus - 2/1/2014, 12:18 PM
So his best friend is a nerd from the band. Shit son.
Firgosaurus - 2/1/2014, 12:18 PM
Whoa leave Levi alone. He's got no life. Leave him alone.
bluedude - 2/1/2014, 12:19 PM
I don't like the rock
hes a wrestler not an actor


keep him away
JoeMomma29 - 2/1/2014, 12:20 PM
@ Firg

LMAO!!!!!
JoeMomma29 - 2/1/2014, 12:21 PM
I crack up how everyone gives DC/WB crap for any casting decision or hint, heck I am shocked that most of the people on here are not working for the movie studios in casting!
HeadPool420 - 2/1/2014, 12:22 PM
Idk about having a GL that's physically bigger then Supes!
AGoodHonestMan - 2/1/2014, 12:23 PM
What ever happen to ol' Levi and how and when did he get banned? Also why hasn't he just create a new account? Mantinum has like 50 of them, so I never understood why he never did it.
manhunter212 - 2/1/2014, 12:23 PM
The Rock could pull this off perfectly. He's played the badass marine in numerous movies, and has become a really good actor over the years. And for people saying he's too big....... he's a marine. He's the perfect size. And if he is then they can do camera tricks to make them all similar.
BlackIceJoe - 2/1/2014, 12:23 PM
I before thought Cuba Gooding Jr. would make for an interesting John Stewart.


But I can see Dwayne Johnson doing a good job at the part. I hope for the next Green Lantern movie to be a Green Lantern Corps movie. This way Hal, Guy, John & Kyle can be in the film. As for which one would be apart of Justice League. I could see WB switching Hal for John. Hal could be on a mission in space so John will be helping the Justice League.
JoeMomma29 - 2/1/2014, 12:24 PM
People get over the Rock being bigger than Cavill it is a freakin movie! Heck if they decided to cast a little person as a major character than you can bitch.
CoolioVids101 - 2/1/2014, 12:24 PM
Why do people want John Stewart? He is so boring
JorEllinator - 2/1/2014, 12:26 PM
John Stewart is fricking bland flakes, I'd rather see Hal, Guy or Kyle. Y'know, the ones with personality!? Nathan Fillion for Hal, Adam Baldwin for Guy and Milo Ventimiglia as Kyle.
JoeMomma29 - 2/1/2014, 12:26 PM
@ AGoodHonestMan

The reason in my opinion Levi has not created another account is the way he was banned. Heck Big G banned him in front of everyone on a big thread and I am sure Levi is pretty embarrassed.
AGoodHonestMan - 2/1/2014, 12:26 PM
I was never big into GL. But I like the Hal/Sinestro thing. I'm not so sure about John Stewart. Rock's a good choice though, but Idris Elba would've been better.
MrMartinMarvel - 2/1/2014, 12:27 PM
[frick] no to the Rock as John Stewart. Also tell Levi I miss him!
LeroyJenkins - 2/1/2014, 12:27 PM
Who cares if he's "bigger" than Superman. Superman would whoop dat assss
AGoodHonestMan - 2/1/2014, 12:28 PM
@ Joe

Do you know how he got banned?
Firgosaurus - 2/1/2014, 12:28 PM
So if Luthor runs for office in 2016. Moira is running for office 2014. Who's gonna run 2015? The Flash?
SuperiorMrGod - 2/1/2014, 12:29 PM
If John Stewart is in the movie there seriously going to disrespect the source material not to mention doom the GL franchise. Half the people who like John Stewart like him because of a cartoon, not because of the GL comics. In the GL comics Hal has consistently been the best GL and the primary protagonist of the franchise. If they do this everyone will get confused when the put Hal in the Movie universe that is if they do.


Oh and Idris Elba is a far more talented actor and has expressed intrest in the character. If your going to go with John at least pick a good actor.
JoeMomma29 - 2/1/2014, 12:29 PM
@ AGoodHonestMan

Yes I was there that night, it was brutal! Usually Big G stays out of flame wars etc.....but Levi continued to poke Big G and he came into the thread and handed his A$$ to him.
LeroyJenkins - 2/1/2014, 12:29 PM
What if Levi is back...among us...in hiding #MartianManhunter
