UPDATE: Michelle Rodriguez Addresses "Rumors" She'll Play JUSTICE LEAGUE's 'Green Lantern'

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> Michelle Rodriguez Addresses "Rumors" She'll Play JUSTICE LEAGUE's 'Green Lantern'

There have been rumours (well, it's more like speculation actually) that Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez will play the Jessica Cruz "Green Lantern", but the actress has entirely dismissed those reports and urges Hollywood to "stop stealing all the white people's superheroes"...


It's hard to say where this "rumour" began. However, it appears as if a few comic book sites suggested that Michelle Rodriguez would be an interesting choice for Jessica Cruz/Power Ring instead of Hal Jordan or one of the other male Green Lanterns, and it's this which led to a few film blogs running with the story like it was an actual rumour rather than just speculation. Regardless, TMZ asked the actress about these reports recently, and she's not interested in being cast for the sake of it. "That's the dumbest thing I ever heard,. I think it's so stupid because of this whole minorities in Hollywood thing. It's so stupid. Stop stealing all the white people's superheroes. Make up your own. What's up with that?" She doesn't appear to be joking (and clearly isn't aware that the Green Lantern she's rumoured for isn't white to be fair), but her comments do seem to reflect those of a fans who would rather see more minority characters brought to the big screen instead of others being changed.

UPDATE: The actress has now released a video statement via Facebook to clarify her comments, making it clear that she had no intention to offend, and expressing her desire for Hollywood to stop taking white characters and forcing them to fit another culture. Instead, she would prefer to see characters of another race have their own mythologies built around them. What do you think?
