D.B. Woodside Throws His Hat In The GREEN LANTERN Ring

D.B. Woodside Throws His Hat In The GREEN LANTERN Ring

No pun intended. Woodside (24, Buffy The Vampire Slayer) is the latest actor to publicly campaign for a superhero role, and this time it's that of John Stewart/Green Lantern in the DCEU. Do you think he has what it takes to reinvent the character after the Ryan Reynolds version?

We assume Warner Bros. plans to reintroduce Green Lantern to their burgeoning DCEU in time for the first Justice League movie, but as far as we know they haven't cast the character yet. Though it hasn't been confirmed, several sources have reported that this incarnation of the space-adventurer will indeed be John Stewart, and it turns out Lucifer actor D.B. Woodside is very interested in nabbing that role.

Woodside - who says he has yet to audition for any Marvel or DC superheroes - wore a Green Lantern t-shirt to last year's SDCC, and CBR recently caught up with him to ask if that was a deliberate ploy to get some attention. It was.


"The whole series and the characters have always been one of my favorites. I grew up as a comic-book guy, so I love these characters. We're living in a superhero bubble right now that I am hoping will never burst. And, maybe I was wearing a Green Lantern t-shirt because I'm trying to get into the minds over at DC as they are looking for their Green Lantern. 'Open up and take a look at some others out here in Los Angeles.' That was my cheeky way of trying to influence them."

It is rare that an actor is able to land a role in this fashion, but it can and has happened - so you can't blame Woodside for putting himself out there on the off chance. What do you guys think? Could you see him as Green Lantern? Sound off below.
