Common Confirms Green Lantern Rumors
Chi-town’s hip-hop hero Common has confirmed that he’ll play the role of the Green Lantern in the upcoming ‘Justice League of America’ film. There’s just one problem … the film’s progress has been stalled due to the ongoing writers strike.
“It’s a blessing really, to know that I could potentially be this superhero,” Common told MTV. “Justice League itself is an honor, and Green Lantern is an incredible character to play. It’s a blessing to be associated with it.”
While the film waits for the green light, Common is already set to appear in this summer’s action/adventure movie, ‘Wanted,’ alongside James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman, and he’s been linked to the upcoming Keanu Reeves drama, ‘The Night Watchman.’
